do you realize what happened . . .

. . . a year ago today?
Perhaps THIS might help jog your memory. :)
(the second half of the post)
I can’t believe a year has gone by already!
What a fabulous time I am having with all of you!
Life can sure be strange.
Never in a million years would I think I would be doing this.
I never thought I’d ever have the courage
 or confidence to do something like this.
But a year? It’s already passed by so fast!

I look back at everything I’ve made in the past year
and just can’t even believe how many things there are now.
Well, I think this one-year mark deserves some kind of celebration,
don’t you?
(I can find any reason to celebrate, really. lol)
Hmm . . . I think I just may have something up my sleeve next week . . .
like ALL next week!
And what would be a party without friends?
I wonder who just might be “stopping by”?
Guess you’ll just have to tune in all next week!
a year already!!!
And I’m putting down August 4 for the day for odd weather . . . two year’s running now. When I reread last year’s post, I didn’t remember that the big lightening storm was that same day. And today? HUGE. MAJOR. RAIN. Mixed with a bit of hail too. A couple different monster downpours that lasted for like 20 minutes and then disappeared. At 4:00 in the afternoon the temperature was 70 degrees . . . in the first week of August??? What???
August 4. Let’s keep track of this one. :)
.  .  .  .  .
It’s also the time of year for this:
Spent three fabulous days camping with these girls!
good times indeed.
Look at this view!
This picture does not even convey the magnitude of what you see when you are really there.
It is beyond awe-ness (yeah, it’s a word).
k. stay tuned for next week!
can’t wait! :)
