Time shared

Every summer, for our wedding anniversary I slip on the white dress I wore when we got married in my backyard in Georgia and Chuck puts on the fishing shirt he wore that same day. For five years in a row, our annual photo has been taken at the farm. Our location moved from an empty field to our little cabin to our newly built home or front porch and last year to our recently constructed shop building. This year, we ventured a little farther away for our goofy photo tradition. We spent our anniversary weekend with Chuck’s best man from our wedding and his wife. They came to visit from Georgia and we spent our time walking miles, sharing, smiles, and catching up on sweet family news.

I hope they enjoyed the stories of our hillbilly life. We loved catching up on all the news from their children and grandchildren. And, we were reminded just how wonderful it is when miles and time melt away as hearts connect with old friends.

There are many treasures to share here in the Ozarks. We visited Roaring River, walked our pastures, spent some time down by Table Rock lake, and finished up at the top of the rock. It was a perfect way to end a long weekend with those we cherish..
