When I was little, I used to dream of finding out I had a long lost sister and we’d be reunited and be instant besties. I obviously didn’t understand the logistics of having a long lost sibling and as far as I know (unless they go all Schwarzenegger on us) my parents have always been true to their nuptials. So now that I don’t want an extra sibling (although finding out Oprah is your sister would be sweeeeet), I’d say the next best thing would be a long lost Grandma:) Meet my Great Grandma Silvia. Well I guess she wasn’t always lost and I’ve always heard about her, but never put two and two together to figure out how we are related. Grandma Silvia is my Grandpa Down’s step-mom. She has always lived in Texas (which seemed so far away back in the day) so my family and I haven’t met her. This weekend was her 82nd birthday party, so we all traveled to see her and wish her happy birthday.

Southern living at its best is the bee’s knees... The balmy air, the beautiful parks, the stately estates...
But most all, I love the mossy oak trees:)

If you are looking for a special way to jump start your Sabbath day, take a stroll through a college campus early on a Sunday morning.
Thanks to generous patrons there is usually a plethora of cathedral like buildings, lush landscaping, and peaceful pathways. The magnitude of the architecture plus the solitude of the grounds (thanks to all the sleeping students) is sure to inspire.
