Small Town, Big Love

IMG_0065

If you want to lose your heart, come to a small town.

We like to dress things up.

We like our art. Especially the kind you can hang right next to your delicates.

United we stand.

We cherish our history. No matter that it didn't always end well.

Yet we welcome our foreign friends as well.

Especially when they know what to do with batter and a skillet.

Down at the square, they pipe in music to walk around by.

Family is everything.

We'd carry their burdens anywhere.

We know that many of life's problems can be solved by just the right amount of sugar.

We know how to beat the heat. . .

…yet still cherish the day.

Hope you are sticky-lipped, sun-kissed, hands-to-sky, enjoying your summer.

LOVE the pics! so cute! 🙂

And I don’t know about y’all, but my summer has been so INSANELY busy that I haven’t had time to just sit and enjoy the sunshine. Seriously. I wish I had time to just mess around, but I got work coming out of my ears and then some. I’m just struggling to survive. Between getting my book published, being a counselor at VBS AND at summer camp, and doing an online course for school, I NEED PRAYER! 🙂
