Last evening I went to a fun but bittersweet farewell party for good buddy Ellie Covington (who is Texas-bound, Galveston).
After a torrential downfall forced the party onto the carport, the late-stayers ventured out onto the dock by the marsh and saw this …
(Do you see the second one to the right?)
Of course, we all had to get a little silly.
I quickly texted the pic to my fam and got this response from daughter Emily (mother of grandtwins Madison and Mathew) from the other side of Savannah:
“We can hold it too!”
The joyful promise of a rainbow!
May the excitement and happiness of children be with us all, especially Ellie as she makes her move to the next successful stage of her life!

Oh my goodness! I’ve been a TERRIBLE blogger this summer, running here, there and everywhere.
BUT I’M BACK!
(Wait, I’m not hearing any shouts of joy.)
The last post was spiritual, so here’s another one that deals with “YES.”
“God tries to create a joyous YES inside you, far more than ny kind of no.”

I LOVE this short video about labeling:

Here are a few pics I took of beauty I’ve seen (and NealEnJoyed) recently:
This I know, and I know FOR SURE: We find what we are looking for. So, what are you looking for this Sunday morning?
I LOVE July (even with its heavy Savannah heat). July’s a bit lazy, sultry and hesitant to enter the second half of the year. It doesn’t rush into things. July takes her time.
Here’s why I’m happy, finishing this second week of the month.
1. Summer sautéing.
2. Admiring window boxes in Charleston on Tuesday.
4. The truth of this statement posted on a boutique in Charleston:
So we better get to it!
5. Having to hide from the paparazzi.
Okay, one more reason for joy–grandson fireworks:
Have a great weekend–and avoid the paparazzi.
