“Girlie” Can Ski!

Our precious “girlie” got to go skiing for the first time this year as part of her family Christmas. “Girlie” is really a precious little girl. She has a girl side to her, but she is also tough as nails.  She loves to play with dolls and the next minute she might go for a wrestling […]

My Friend’s Hat

This is our best friend’s new hat. He doesn’t want it. His family does not want it. I don’t want it. Nobody wants it. This hat has changed his world. It has changed his family’s world. It has changed his friend’s world. It has changed our world. This hat about says it all. Cancer really does suck.

More Than Just a Pub

It’s Friday so I thought I would share my “most” favorite London pub. I can already tell that there will be more to this story so hang on tight as my ramblings might take you on a few zigs and zags. The Grenadier is one of London’s oldest pubs and it lives up to what […]

Childhood Camp-House

Growing up on a ranch was a wonderful opportunity and a good place to grow up. Although farming and ranching is a hard life, I think most would consider it a privilege to grow up that way. On our ranch we had Black Angus Registered Cattle and our crops were cotton. We had a typical […]

She is a mix of a little bit tomboy and a lot “girl”. She loves to be rough and rule her big brother, but the […]

Windmill On My Mind

When I was growing up we had the nicest man who repaired windmills for a living. I loved when he would come to our ranch because he would usually bring his two daughters which meant I would have instant company. His daughters were always so kind to play with me although they were quite a […]

Girl’s Road Trip

Yesterday I took a day road trip with a good friend. We drove to see a dear friend who lives in a small country town nearly two hours away. The town has 4,000 people with many beautiful old homes from the 1800s sprinkled here and there. It has a relaxed lazy feel, although I must say that […]

Sentimental Sunday

I can actually vividly remember the day this photo was taken. My grandmother had a small 13th birthday party for me with a few of my friends. My grandmother was in very poor health, but still took the time to make sure I had a special day. She was the sweetest lady and I still miss her to […]

Girls Lake Trip

Nothing makes life better than a girl’s trip to the lake. We had lot’s of fun and were lucky that the weather actually provided us with two wonderful sunny days.  This was great way to start the summer season by spending a few days just boating and swimming all day with a little shopping on the side! Of course, the best part is enjoying time […]

Sidewalks Not Needed

This was me when I was nearly four. We lived on our ranch which had no sidewalks. You notice this did not deter me from riding my trike every day. Loved my tricycle and loved to ride it in the yard and down the gravel driveway. It took a lot of effort to ride that trike in […]

Best Retro Texaco Gas Station Ever!

When traveling on our “Girl Trip” Sunday (see previous post) we found this darling antique retro gas station. It was absolutely the cutest gas station I have ever seen. It was an original filling station from the 50s. Someone had painstakingly restored it back to the 50s. It is a full service station and pristine. I […]

Flea Market Girl’s Trip

A college friend and I traveled for a day trip to see a special friend who has recently moved about two hours away. We had the most fun ever! It was wonderful to laugh, tell old stories and spend time together. By the end of the day we had literally laughed all day long. We even chuckled when we […]

Mississippi Porch

I love front porches and the chairs/rockers that they display. I especially love when beautiful colors have been used whether it be the wooden floors, shutters or the chairs/rockers. When on a girl’s trip, a few years ago, I took a quick photo of this house which had been converted into a restaurant. We had made reservations to dine […]
