Summer Time

I'm still writing .. just in a different format.  I've joined two organizations that keep me busy with reports, newsletter articles, minutes and meetings.  That leaves my mind 'spent' for everyday blog writing.  We are under full sail with wedding plans ~ invites get mailed out this week. 

The bride-to-be and her fiancé

My folks just left after visiting for a week.

Yesterday we had a family BBQ complete with grandkids, uncles, grand and great grandparents.  A delicious baby .. and an active seven year old.  Badminton on the front lawn.  Oh, and the most deliciously moist Texas sheet cake for dessert; the bride-to-be would like it served at her wedding! 

My heart will always yearn to blog .. and so I leave you with this tidbit .. peek .. into a life lived to the fullest.

It sounds like you had some great family time.

Blessings on the wedding, bride and groom and the preparations.
