In case you’ve been wondering why I haven’t been posting lately…


I have been up to my child-bearing hips in preparation for the Mother of all Estate Sales, which is finally happening this week, Thursday the 25th through Saturday the 27th. It has been a ridiculous amount of work, but the Michael Taylor people are just amazing, and in an odd way I am really enjoying ‘shedding’ myself of some of our possessions. Honestly, we just have TOO MUCH STUFF, and I am so looking forward to having a place for everything so we can actually put everything in its place– instead of shoving things into the attic, garage and storage closets and never even missing them!

So if you’re in the area, come on out– there is some good stuff!

Photo Friday: Endings and Beginnings

I want to thank each and every one of you for the kind words, good thoughts and sweet prayers you sent my way after the loss of my beloved Mom. You will never know what it meant to me, and how very much it helped. I am grieving, but certainly not “as those who have no hope.” Mom was 96 years old and died in her sleep– it’s kind of hard to be mad at God!

So, a lifelong chapter closes, but a new beginning is right around the corner. And FINALLY, I get to show you where we’re headed!

Mama didn’t get to visit us here and sit in a rocker with me on that gorgeous porch, but she did get to see the pictures, and she just loved it…

Than you, sweet Jesus– at the end of this month, we are at long last Bell Buckle Bound!
