june from the iphone

this boy was ready for his kindergarten splash day.

the plastic piece that holds the metal thread holder in place cracked.
insert straw and keep on sewing.
'cause mama ain't got no time for that!

my favorite quilt tag to date!

sweet girl picking wildflowers in the woods.

hugging on the maid-of-honor and wedding planner extraordinaire.

and with the beautiful bride.

playing with granddaddy on father's day and melting my heart.

my main squeeze and best friend turned 39 on the 16th!

last week the tallahassee cousins were here,
and we soaked up our time with them.
we pool hopped, lake hopped,
celebrated grandma re's birthday,
hit the children's museum,
squeezed in some VBS,
and loved every minute of it!



not that bad after all

tatum loves swimming in the pool with mrs. pat now.
and she's turning into a little fish just like her big brother,
who decided he wouldn't show off his diving skills after all.


rain is a good thing

as i sit here today,
there are pieces of juliann and clint's wedding throughout the house.
from flower girl gifts, dress, and shoes,
to lovely flowers that adorned the tables.

i keep thinking back to so much of saturday night,
from the ceremony that made them official,
to the rain that poured down on us all as we danced the night away.
a testament to their true love,
and the love so many others have for them.

it was an evening that won't soon be forgotten,
and we are so very blessed to have had a part in the celebration.

and now these three remain:  faith, hope, and love.
but the greatest of these is love.  I Corinthians 13:13
