small town love

as i drive through
our small town USA
the streets are lined
with flags

such an amazing sight
to see!

tomorrow is the local parade
and although i will
not be attending, 
i love seeing the town
put so much effort into it
and to see the hometown spirit!

 taken at last year's parade

tomorrow i will be
at a park celebrating my youngest
grandson's 2nd birthday,
instead of attending the

i cannot believe he is
already two years old
where in the world did
the time go?

today the weather is amazing!

a walk in the sunshine,
visits over coffee,
while sitting in the park...
a promise of going out to
a nice dinner with the husband,
makes for one fabulous day!

may you be blessed too
with a lovely weekend-

and join me in sharing your smile

dear friends, you never
know who might need one of your
special smiles to get them
through the day!

This parade could have been one from my hometown!! Only we would have had a John Deere, not a red IH. Otherwise, how wonderful!!

For a period of time, I grew up in a small town, and I loved it. Just can't beat those simple, heartfelt celebrations!

We spent about 8 hours at Birch Bay today.

Ahhh ... loving the long-awaited sunshine.

Mama read books while the children swam, flew a kite, played catch, and played soccer.

Wonderful day with my kids!

Glad you had a good one, too.

:) :) :)
