Miscellany Monday - 40 Years Ago Today

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

40 years

Yes, 40 years ago today I became Mrs. Tommy Culp. If you missed my blog entry on Friday, you might want to click here. It's a "blast from the past" for sure!

We had a good time celebrating Friday evening with dear friends and Diane made sure the table was "decked out" for the occasion.
I'm not sure what we will do today, but all I can say, "what a ride" these past 40 years have been!


Our precious Princess has decided to "try her hand" at climbing.  I had the above step ladder out the other day and she decided to see if she could do what she had just seen her CiCi do.  So much fun to watch!  And, have I told you what a contented little girl she is?  I mean, just a delight!!!

"The Catch"

Hubby decided to go fishing this past Thursday and he came home with quite a "show and tell."  But, he was on the ragged edge after the all day excursion and the boiling heat!  Says he won't do that again.  We'll see.

Snap Dragons

Have you ever seen Snap Dragons arranged like this?  I saw this the other evening while we were out and I thought they were just gorgeous.  And, the best part is that I am quite sure I could do this.  Don't think I would ever need one this big, but I would just scale it down to the size I needed and "go for it."  I'm always looking for simple and attractive ways to arrange flowers.  

Little Sweetheart

This is the Granddaughter of a precious friend of mine.  She came by the other night and brought Lauren with her.  Lauren wasn't quite sure about these new folks she was meeting but I could not resist snapping her picture.

  1. Happy Anniversary!!! I love the pictures of the two of you. :)

    And that is quite the catch -- tell him "great job" but to stay out of that heat. The catch reminds me of our upcoming vacation to the lake. And how thankful I am for my dad as he cleans all of our catch.

    Have a great Monday!
