A season of growth and learning- Courtney’s Wedding

Tracy / October 22, 2017

This post is about so many things, mostly Courtney’s wedding.  🙂  I’m just throwing that out there since it is probably going to seem a little scattered. Did you know you can buy these on Ebay?! I did not. I had NO idea. The last time we looked up replacements for our car, they were going to be about $30/fob.…

Lines From The Vine - http://www.LinesFromTheVine.com

Woah! I had no idea when I woke up this morning, we would have such a day of adventure and memory making ahead! Paul has been working at the ball park in Hoover this week, doing the 2017 SEC Baseball Championship. Benjamin had asked if he could go and see Paul working on the truck so Paul and I scheduled…

Hello, old friends. It’s been quite a long time. Life has taken so many twists and turns in recent months. Each morning has brought challenges and blessings (of course, those challenges are blessings if you believe that all things happen for the good of those who love Him!). I have a new grand-boy. We’re knee deep in our little soap…

The Aroma of My Heart

I’ve been taken with our roses lately. I find myself lingering over them- dreaming of a time when the entire rose bed might be full of blooms, watching the bees buzz as they do their daily work while we enjoy the fruits of their labor. I cut several stems a few nights back. They are arranged in vases on the…

Texas 2015 (Part 2- San Antonio)

San Antonio is an absolutely beautiful city. I was privileged to spend time there as a teenager for a high school speech competition and I’ve been there twice with Paul. We were on the road early from Houston toward San Antonio. Paul had decided he wanted to eat lunch at The Canyon Café. It is located not far from town…

We are *so* very blessed to have a sweet young friend who agreed to take a new family photo for us while everyone was here on Resurrection Sunday. This one will now replace the one that currently hangs above our sofa. I’m thrilled to be updating that one, we were missing Owen, Kylie, our new (expected) grandson and Paul’s sweet…

Family Time

In case you wonder what the evening looks like in our home….. Photo courtesy of Courtney!

Old Photos

My Great-Grandmother. She had a graceful beauty.

Family Game Night

We do still try and find time for fun on Friday nights. On this particular Friday, we had additional guests…. I *adore* the people in this room. To sit and listen to the laughter and watch them having fun, meant the world to me. There are days I *wish* I could freeze in time.

Our Nephews….

Tracy / November 30, 2013

I asked my brother-in-law if Courtney might photograph our nephews on Thanksgiving. She has been spreading her photography wings a bit recently. A few Saturdays ago, she spent the majority of the day at a local garden photographing Sav-A-Life babies with their mothers and siblings. She hopes to actually begin booking photo sessions in 2014. I’m so proud of her…and…
