The South

Where tea is sweet and accents are sweeter; summer starts in April; front porches are wide and words are long; macaroni and cheese is a vegetable; pecan pie is a staple; Y’all is the only proper pronoun; chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy; everything is darling and someone is always getting their heart blessed. -unknown

The Wedding

Brooks was invited to be the ring bearer in Brent's cousin Meagan's wedding last weekend. We left Reese with my mother and trekked up to Arkansas with Brent's mother. We had a wonderful time. The wedding was at a plantation home that was built around 1833 and is still in the same family. I would have loved to spend a whole day looking around inside. It had millions of dollars worth of antiques in the home. (And I am not exaggerating.) Brooks did a wonderful job! They had the family and the parents of the flower girl and us sit up on the "veranda" for the wedding. It was such a different perspective to see the wedding from. (We were almost behind the bride and groom.) Brooks had a great time dressing up in his tux. I was sure glad to get back home and see Reese. I wasn't expecting the reception I got when I went to get him from my parents. He screamed and wanted his Pop instead of me! He soon got better and has been his normal self ever since.

I have so many things I want to write about but don't have the time right now. I am leaving tomorrow afternoon to go to the beach with almost all the girls from work. I can't wait! I genuinely love all the girls that I work with and know that we are going to have a great time. I am hoping life will settle back down once I get back.
