From Texas to Tennessee, and back!

We took a trip!
We were gone for five days, crossed four states, and traveled over 1500 miles.
I never took one photograph.

So, does that mean we did not have fun or there was nothing beautiful, delicious or interesting to photograph?
 Quite the opposite.
I guess I was just having too much fun, enjoying too much delicious food and company, and too busy to take the time and capture it in photographs.
Instead, there are memories and images etched upon my heart that will last forever.
Unfortunately, that doesn't provide much for me to share here.

We visted a dear elderly friend.  The kind of visit your mind knows may be your last.  Your heart hopes there will be many more.
We shared meals with family members, and caught up on their latest news.
My husband reconnected with law school classmates.
We ditched diets and dined at fabulous restaurants, enjoying every delicious morsel.
We hugged our son, and hugged him some more!
We familiarized ourselves with his new surroundings.
I recognized happiness and excitement in his face and voice, beneath the signs of too little sleep from the fast pace of first year law school.

We returned home.
Those of you who know me well, also know I would have preferred to stay there.
This Texas girl would gladly become a Tennessee gal.
Except, I am very proud of and excited for our Texas Rangers!
That is where I will be tonight -- cheering them on and hoping for a World Series win!

Next trip, I really will try to take photographs!

I leave my camera home a lot because I don't want to share everything I do in my life. Isn't that something?

I love TN! My big sister lives there and I love the change of the seasons.

Sooo happy you had fun!
