Good advice, don't you think?
We had a "Cousins Reunion" this past Saturday in Dallas. Most everyone was there although there are 5 that are deceased and 2 more that were unable to attend. Our parents were from a family of 9 siblings, including 1 set of twins. We really haven't been together other than for funerals for a very long time. We do have plans to do this more often! We need to make every effort as we're all growing older and you never know what tomorrow might bring. I don't mean to be morbid here...it's just a reality for all of us! 3 of the cousins have cancer, one has an issue walking, one has diabetes, etc. Probably TMI, right? I apologize!
NOTE: All the photos were taken with cell phones and not the best!
We were so fortunate to have our only living Aunt join us! She's 93 ~ isn't that awesome? She's in reasonably good health...difficulty walking without her cane and difficulty hearing. This is the first year *ever* that she hasn't had a garden. That's been her lifestyle and let me tell you, the veggies she canned were superb! At Christmas, she always gave me a large bag full of canned items. I always looked forward to it and loved it immensely.
In the above photo we were all pointing to her as our "Guest of Honor"! She had as much fun as the rest of us. It was so wonderful to see everyone and try to catch up in the time we had. I do have to say that the 2 organizers have suggested a twice a year gathering and I really hope we can do that!

Just thought I'd share this article with you. It's written by a new Target employee, chronicling his first week on the job. It's a bit long but absolutely hilarious! You will be glad you read it, I promise! :)

Essie's new Fall Collection is out! I don't think the selection is as impressive as OPI's but that's just me.

I realize all the Fall Home Tours are going on this week so if you took the time to stop by, I so appreciate it!
