To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

SPRING TIME IN TEXAS AND ATLANTA
What a great spring weekend everywhere!!!
"Exactly what's in this big box??"
"OMG! I had no idea WE had all these toys!"
"Hey....are there any good balls in there??"
How does she do it? Without any tending to whatsoever,
this looks stunning after months of winter weather!
It took one full Saturday,
but the trimming and planting has been completed.
Now we just sit back and wait for the beauty to unfold......
Inside, Easter is on parade.....
How I love that Miss M has
her Great Grandmother Estelle's hobnail pedestal plate!
Luke the Duke spent the weekend in Huntsville
for a Boy Scout retreat at the Nasa Space Camp!
This has proven to be a fantastic experience for him!
It turned into a lovely weekend here in Texas.
After a full week of rain...
the sun came out
on Saturday! I told Rob we need to take a selfie
just to show he WAS actually here for a little while.
Always a full social schedule,
as he was off to a wedding
in Fort Worth!
Saturday was a delightful treat,
as we hosted Miss Abbie and No.2 son
for a spend the night and steak dinner!
They were up in our area for a volleyball tournament!
It was a lovely time to catch up with their lives..
school, work, and social activities!
We are ever so proud of our one and only granddaughter!
She is as pretty inside and she is outside....
she makes me laugh and we share many, many special times!
A new fragrance...
and it's heavenly!
What did y'all do this weekend? Whatever it was...I hope you made some good memories!
