Today is our 23rd Wedding Anniversary! We went out yesterday for a special dinner to celebrate! I just know you're asking "how can they be married for that long when they're both so young?". They must have gotten married when they were just kids! (ha!ha!) Seriously, I am very blessed to have such a wonderful hubby and if I had it to do all over again, would marry him again in a hearbeat!

More crepe myrtles from Mom & Dad's yard. I understand the name came from the fact that the light crinkly petals look like crepe paper or crepe fabric. Visit http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/writers/msg03162434666.html for a discussion of whether the correct spelling is "crepe" or "crape". Either way, I just love them!

The azaleas were gorgeous, but so was the other landscaping! In spite of everything else we did while in Tyler, I think we had the most fun driving around looking at the beautiful homes and yards! And I wanted to share my photos with you......

Love vintage jewelry, especially pins!
I've been researching how to get larger photos on my blog and read that if you use Flickr, it will automatically bring it over to your blog in a larger size. So, I'm trying it here. It certainly is larger than my other photos. I noticed when you double-click on the photo, it now takes you to Flickr, which I haven't noticed on other people's blogs. (Is that good or bad?) It was very easy to do & even let me write the text in Flickr, then I went into my blog to adjust the text size/color. I noticed it put the photo name and my Flickr name under the photo. Does anyone have any other suggestions? Thanks for any help; as you can see, I'm new to blogging! Hope everyone's been having a great weekend!

Fireworks at the spectacular Las Colinas 4th of July display! We had a great family get-together last night at my brother's apartment, including a cake & gifts for Jordan, who just turned 18. Gloria called from Colorado to tell us all hello! We then moved the party outside for the fireworks. Thanks, Keith, for the fun party! I took the "squiggly" picture shown first and Dad took the rest of the photos. Thanks, Dad!
