Road Trip and Family Time!

Hi All!

It’s the start of another week!  Hope you all had a great weekend.  I know for some these past few weeks have been filled with graduations, and lots of parties.  I’ve had friends and cousins graduate over the last couple weeks.  Even this weekend the family packed up for a little weekend getaway to attend my cousin’s grad party.  I had the pleasure of making the trip with my aunt, and that is always fun!  You never know what to expect with her.  I took a few pics over the weekend with my phone, even though I had TWO fully charged cameras in my purse.  It was a great weekend filled with laughs and loads of family time.  Instagram was a hit with my family this weekend, with several of us using it to capture the good times.  So I thought I’d share just a few of the pics that my family and I took this weekend.


            So my weekend started with this…



                                                                                                                                                             And ended with this…

So after this weekend, it made me realize that maybe I should start a link up!  And I’m thinking that next week will be it’s start.  Working title, “What’d Ya Snap? Monday” or “What’d Ya Pic? Monday.”  Photos will be based on what you took during the weekend, only using Instagram, Hipstamatic, or any other phone based app you use.  So what do you think?  Let me know in a comment.

Until next time…

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello All!

Ready to bake sweet potato pies!
I just wanted to say a quick Happy Thanksgiving to you all!  I’ve been baking pies, and getting ready for all the holiday festivities.  I hope this holiday is full of great moments with family or friends.  I know I am thankful this year for my husband and family, and thankful for having such great friends in my life.  What are you all thankful for?
Have a great and safe thanksgiving!
Until next time…

Friends Til The End

Hi Y’all!

I thought I’d do a quickie post today since I am guest posting over at Bewildered Bug.  The lovely Serena was kind enough to let me be apart of her Too Far Away Friday’s series.  Sometimes we have to face being apart from our significant others, and she is offering a look at different view points of the long distance relationship.  So go check out my post about my “long distance love” and browse her great blog!

I just returned from a “girls” night with some friends and  it made me think.  So today I just wanted to touch bases on what real friends are, and how important they can be in your life.  Are they those who you’ve met that seem more like family after time?  Or maybe they have always been there for you during every moment of your life.  You’ve probably heard the phrase B.F.F (best friends forever), and I remember using that back in junior high and high school.  But the truth is sometimes the people you think are going to be your B.F.F’s kind of fade away to almost acquaintances when you are older.  I remember in high there was a group of us who were all friends, yet one day we all seemed to grow apart and that group was split down the middle.

I’d like to think that real friends are there for you no matter what.  They love you for who are and are there to support you if you should ever need it.  You may not talk all the time, but you know that you could call them out of the blue if absolutely necessary.  And they know that you are there for the same reasons.

I’ve been lucky blessed to have friends like this in my life.  I’m not sure “best friend” status, if you’d like to call it that, is just limited to one person.  But several people can be considered your best friends in different ways.  I know I have a few.  But there is one person who I’ve been friends with for years, around 17 years, that I think of as the original!  She was my maid of honor, and I hers.  We’ve been through so much together, and we been there to cry on each others shoulders.  The good and the bad.  I really do consider her to be like my sister, and my family treats her that way as well.  I have several other friends that my family has “adopted” and they care for them like they would family.  I hope everyone gets to experience a friendship like that.  Because it’s an amazing thing.

Well like I said just a quickie post to say how thankful I am for the friends I’ve got.

What kind of friendship experiences have you had?  Are they more like family?
Let me know, I love comments!

Until next time…
