King of the Top Bunk? Don’t let him fool you; he fell in the tub today and his pride was sorely insulted, as his legs looked sweet and dainty with the fur all wetted down. And that’s deodorant to the left of his paw, and, well…he probably needs to use it. So he’s not near as cool as his pose suggests.

Today was such a good day. I got to share some of my recent writing with my writer-friend, and then we met up with two more friends at Chapps for DELICIOUS burgers and fries. Outside Chapps, I saw a tree with these gigantic white blossoms on it. Magnolia trees! I have this blossom in the pitcher on my table now, thanks to my friend keeping it fresh-ish for me while I was away from it. Later in the day, she and I sat at the school park in the shade under a pecan tree while the kids ran around for almost two hours. It was heavenly!

So, this project is sort of in a kind-of-not-finished-and-ugly-but-it’ll-do-for-now phase. My spray-painting skills are terrible, apparently, at least on a tray that slopes inward. And I would probably not hand-write the family’s names on the magnetic hooks next time….but behold our FHE board! The tags have the various tasks written on them, like Activity, Lesson, Treat, etc.

On this day in 2011, I was having a girls weekend (here we are at Krave in Saint George) with Jenn and Cara and Cara’s twins, Charlotte and June. A year later, I live in TEXAS, Jenn is getting MARRIED, Cara’s family has moved to a FARM, and the twins are (obviously) older. Crazy how much can change in 12 months’ time!

This is Kelly, one of my dear friends here, her daughter in the middle, and Reed carrying on a sweet conversation while he holds Kelly’s baby’s hand. Kelly and I have cleaned each other’s houses together, cooked dinner together, and we share a love of writing—which we nurture together, too. I feel so blessed by her friendship! She has two other daughters who Savvy plays with.
