About Me

My photo
Welcome to my blog. I'm a Mississippi country girl transplanted to Grapevine, TX. I have been blessed with a great husband, and my kiddos, Aleck and Ella. When I'm not eating bon bons on the couch, I am my kid's room mom, PTA member, Sunday School teacher, taxi driver, amateur photographer and personal chef. When I'm not doing those things, I'm running a small jewelry business, 2nd Amendment Jewelry (www.2ndamendmentjewelry.com), that I started with my twin sister, Glenda. It's a crazy and busy life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world. I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life!

How do you wish your husband Happy Father’s Day when you see the pain in his eyes and you know he is longing for one more Father’s Day with his own dad?  Today was a bittersweet day.  I am so thankful for the wonderful husband and father that Tom is, but something seemed wrong about celebrating.  The loss of Tom’s dad is too fresh, and the sadness Tom feels too deep. 


Thank you, Joni, for helping me make Tom’s Father’s Day gift.  Thank you, Dede, for inviting us over to swim and barbeque, and just loving on my family today.  When our family is so far away, I am thankful for friends that are like family.

I hope it helped take his mind off of it for a little while! We enjoyed it! That's what friends do for each other.
