We MISS Y'all

I was walking through Lowe's the other day and this smell hit me like a ton of bricks. At our Huntington Ct. house there was this very inconspicuous looking shrub that I never thought anything of until the first time it bloomed. It is called a "sweet box" or "sweet olive" and it gets tiny fragrant blossoms that have an unmistakable smell. So after that first bloom I went to the nursery on Caldwell and got 4 or 5 more of them and planted them all over.

So as I was walking through Lowe's, all of the sudden I was transported back to a summer day by the pool with all of you. I honestly got choked up. Of course I had to by one of the bushes, and I am sitting out on our new porch swinging in our swing and smelling that one of a kind smell that I will always associate with summer and friends. We really miss our Visalia gang.

Chels!!!! We miss you guys, too! We honestly haven't had a decent party since you left! But, we miss you at our fake book club and just gabbing at random Centex things and having lunch together at someone's house. And that video AJ made for Paul made me cry!
