But the memory

SHARE THIS | PIN-IT | TWEET IT

I spent the weekend makin' memories. That's the thing I've always loved about spring. The beautiful weather and the chance for new adventure. Growin' up in Texas you're bound to have memories of  every Spring puttin' on your nicest dress and takin' pictures in a field of Bluebonnets.
One of my neighbors had Bluebonnets that grew wild all over her yard. She would scold us neighborhood children if we even looked at her yard wrong. And don't you dare think about walkin' through her yard in the Winter. Ms. Linda, the neighbor, has long since passed but I know she's still with us. I see her in each Bluebonnet I pass. I hear her when the petals rustle. Her smile is as bright as the Texas sun.

  1. Oh my! Your daughter is so beautiful. I love the flowers! It looks like she was enjoying them, too. I don't know that I've ever seen bluebonnets in person.

    1. You should come to Texas they are the best. And yes, Ruthie is the cutest. I don't know if I could handle if she was mine. Too much personality. HA. I just watch her sometimes
