"When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive, to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love." Marcus Aurelius
I hope everyone had a great Independence Day!
Ours was busy with a family reunion, fireworks and a wedding. We have triplets in our family, and the oldest, by one minute, said her vows and married the love of her life. She was beautiful, all dressed in white. I have watched them grow up and become beautiful women, learning to ride bikes, graduating high school, going to college,and now being a beautiful bride.
It was so nice having family here from out of state.
My cousins whom I grew up with, all together, again.
This is just part of us, we can't get all of us in the same photo, if only our granny could see us now. She would be so proud!
My cousin and next door neighbor, has a large pavilion perfect for large gatherings, and lots of food. We started Friday morning, decorating for the big 4th of July bash.
Everyone chipped in, hanging red, white and blue lights and flags all around. One thing our family does best is work together.
We had about 70 people at the celebration.
Here is a photo of thehubs (my best friend) and I,
celebrating 16 years of marriage.
Here is big brother and next door neighbor,
ready for company.
Then it was off to Kansas City to help Kdaughter get ready for her move back home. This is the sixth move in 5 years for them. It has been hard, but well worth the career changes. They had a 5 year plan and now they will get to come back home.
This makes me happy.
Hope you all have a wonderful July!
