This Mother’s Day was a really good one. I went over on Sunday morning & joined my parents at church. We came home & then went over to my sister’s house, where she had prepared lunch for all of us. My hubby, Peter, spent the day with his mom in B’ham, so I went alone this time to spend time with my family. It was a beautiful summery day & we sat on the porch & enjoyed the fresh breeze. I know my Mama was happy to have all her chicks with her this year!
It’s just me and my sister, Renee (she’s 2 years older than me) and she has only one daughter, Lauren (who’s 24). Since I don’t have kids of my own, Lauren’s the only grandchild & my parents absolutely dote on her. She’s a little spoiled (since we’ve all been guilty of that), but we are so very proud of her. Lauren is especially close to my parents & informed me today when we were chatting on the phone that she’s never leaving the Atlanta area, cause she does not want to be away from her grandparents. I think she’ll stick to that one too! Lauren is graduating next Saturday from The University of Georgia Lawschool. She finished her 4 year degree & has now completed 3 years of lawschool. Think we’re a little proud of that girl? Yep, we are! She has a job lined up this fall at a local law firm in Marietta (where they all live).

Here we are in the shade of the deck. As usual, I have no clue why some pics open larger & some don’t. This one seems to be the only clickable one! My sister made chicken divan, green beans & almonds, black-eyed peas & homemade rolls! It was delish! I brought the strawberry shortcake & it was yummy too!
My little garden redo didn’t run yet, but it is supposed to hit the paper this Saturday. We are leaving then for a week at the beach, so I’ll have to post that when we return.
