September Smiles



This month has proven to be one full of some of our favorite faces! We had our best newlywed friends come visit us for the weekend. We had not seen them in 8 years. They have moved back to north Mississippi and we are so glad!! It was fun to meet up again with children. It was like we never missed a beat. True friends. We live life alike and I really like that about us :)


This meet up was good for my heart. Our sweet Aynn at my Mama's house for supper and laughs. She lost her precious husband a few weeks ago and I missed the funeral. I needed to see her, hug her and hear her laugh. It was wonderful and Mama cooked a yummy supper for us. We all celebrate September birthdays so a cake was on the menu too. 


No words for how much I adore this visit to Sandy Ridge Farm. Our friends Dustin and Anna farm sweet potatoes in Senatobia, Mississippi. They invited us to see the harvest. We were thrilled to check it out. Dustin gave Henry the grand tour and even purchased a toy tractor for him just like the one you see Henry standing on. Rotten boy! It was really quite cool to see how they harvest the sweet taters. 


Since we visited the farm on my birthday, Dustin treated us to Como Steakhouse in Como, MS for dinner. I loved visiting with Anna. She is truly a southern belle and we are soul sisters. She gave me the cutest cookbook and made me feel extra special. 


Hugging this old handsome fella was the icing on my birthday cake! I got to see him on my birthday while driving through to go to the farm. My Daddy is a sweetie to have helped get me here 36 years ago! 


Nothing like a Marmie/Mama hug the day after my birthday! I'm thankful this woman had me 36 years ago. She is a saint to put up with me all these years. She always reminds me that I was late arriving and they had to force my stubborn self out. I can see all these qualities in me still yet after all these years! 


Being at "home" with my homegirls is therapeutic to my whole being. There is nothing better than an old friend. I thank God for the treasure of friendship, both the silver and gold friends of life. Sliver has always been my go-to though! We met up for dinner and talked about life, laughed and smiled a lot. A real smile and honest laugh with friends who really get you are precious to the soul. 


This. Just this. It's like a Life commercial in reverse. Melissa and me. These boys are destined to be buds for life. Luke and Henry got a quick visit in while Melissa treated me to my favorite homemade birthday cake and an ice cold Diet Coke. I love that girl more than cake, words and Diet Coke.. And that's big! This month is probably one of my favorite Septembers in my history of 36 Septembers... And it isn't over yet! ;)
