An Evening with Friends

It's sad that we have friends only an hour away that we see only about once a year. But with both of them working full time, and raising two young boys, their schedules are jam-packed. But tonight was one of those yearly events. We went to their house, where we grilled out, sat in the spa, and swam in the pool all evening. We had a great time!

We also got to meet the newest addition to their family--Henry. Henry is the cutest dang thing ever! Even if he does still pee on the floor and chew up the coffee table. Who could resist that face? It's the Power of Cute.

One of the many joys of homeownership...

It seems there is always something wanting to suck your money away when you own a home. This time, its gutters. The gutters are over 20 years old, they are always clogged with leaves, and have pulled away from the house in places. Time to replace them...

Diet Snacks...

Yeah, this is what I get for a snack. If I ever see another strawberry again, it will be too soon.

Thank you, Facebook!

Thank you, Facebook. Once again, you have made it possible to re-connect with an old friend. On December 9, 2008, I found my high school friend Julie on Facebook. We messaged each other and got 'caught up' with each others lives. She lives on the west coast, near Seattle, and doesn't come back here to Nashville very often. But she arrived here yesterday for a family wedding this weekend! We made plans to meet for lunch, and had a great time remembering different people, catching up on where they are and what they're doing, and talking about our lives now. It was so great to see her! I hope to go out to Seattle again someday soon, and see her and meet her family.
