I’m so excited that tomorrow I get to see my niece Amy, and her beautiful new daughter Caroline. I haven’t seen them since right after the birth when they first got home (they live in Florence). Check back in the next few days, because I’m sure I’ll have lots of pictures to share :) In the meantime, here is a precious shot of my adorable little great-niece that her mommy sent me the other day:

Been a while…

... since I posted real thoughts, etc. Yeah, I know – I’m a horrible blogger! In a few months when it gets cold; hunting season starts back; and possibly things slow down for me personally; I’ll find myself with more time to share and write thoughts again. It was hunting season last year when I started my blog after all. I do spend a lot of time on Facebook – but that’s mostly because I can access/update it from my phone (usually while sitting in traffic).

So on this ‘occasion’, here’s a couple things – I recently had “another” birthday (boy they sure do come around quickly now). My sweet family took me to dinner and for ice cream and I really enjoyed it, luckily Isabella was here and got to join us! Thank you Cookie, Kristin, Josh, Ella, Bull and Bella – we missed you Patrick, Beth and Alston! Ella, and her mommy, made me the best birthday card I have ever received – I love it!!

Also, we got to have Bella again this past weekend! Having her 2 weekends in a row is so wonderful!

Oh, and by the way - we knew Bella loved ketchup, and we had discovered she really likes ranch dressing... but this past weekend I think we may have found her true love: honey mustard :)
