the Happy in my City


Fun, Food, Friends, & Family.

It all started with monkey bread, made by Shelbie and her friend Kacey (my "3rd daughter").

My parents came over, and we picked muscadine grapes from our vines.

{and maybe I drank some wine, to take the edge off the parental-visit-induced crazy. Maybe.}

{Someone was hiding under the grape vines....}

We all walked around the yard, looking at the garden and the rose bushes.

I made two huge pots of chicken & dumplings,
to feed my family, two of the kids' friends, and my parents.

And now, my teenagers are at the movies;
Shelbie, Tim, and Kacey, the 3rd daughter.

As for me, I am full of The Happy.

I hope you had a wonderful Sunday in Your City!

Looks like a great day! We usually have Monkey Bread on Christmas morning. When I was Up North last week, my mom was hosting a BBQ and was worried she was going to run out of Sweet Tea. I generously offered to refrain and drink the wine instead. I'll always take one for the team. I'm nice like that ;)

I love the picture of the rose. I swear I could almost smell it's sweet fragrance through the computer! LOL!
