I Reckon

I took the girls to Biltmore yesterday and I guess on weekends they have this sweet little couple playing old time bluegrass. They play in the old barn where they have activities for the kids. It is nice to listen to live music while the girls play. The woman of the duo would talk to the people there in the audience and she would say things like "I reckon". I want to say "I reckon" but in a sweet southern belle way and not a redneck way. I am just not sure that works with me, but it would be so sweet. Maybe that will be one of my goals for 2011, start talking like a sweet ol' southern belle. I know I have already reflected in one post, but with this time of year it is almost impossible not to reflect. Who doesn't want to start the new year off with a clean slate and positive goals to achieve? Two of my goals will be feeding my Faith and feeding my marriage. Annie just introduced this wonderful blog (there is so much inspiration in the blog world it is almost intimidating) her sister in law introduced her to, it is called Today's Letters. This husband and wife write each other letters in a journal and hide it for the other to find. I love all things paper and letters, there is something so intimate about addressing a letter "Dear Worth Lover of my soul". It has been awhile since I wrote a letter like that, I need to again. It is easy for Worth and I to get caught up in the day to day without hardly acknowledging one another as each others spouse. Sure I married my best friend, but isn't he more then that? It is time to show our girls a solid loving marriage.
























I told you Rosie got a skate helmet. She seems to like it although her attention span is about two trips up and down the driveway. Maybe her next lesson will be snowboarding with mom and dad!

























My sweet Hollings smiling away even with pink eye! Such a sweet sweet little thing. She brings us great joy.

Sunday, I just got caught up a bit on your blog and it blessed me. I wish I would have read it during our hectic Christmas. There is so much to be thankful for and you have a beautiful way of reflecting that in your photos and in your heart. Thank you!

o i reckon reckon could quite nicely with you this year. glad you like that blog as much as i did. i hope that girl knows how much she's helped people. i love this time of year, so much perspective is gained, maybe its because we all have a little more time indoors to sit back and think. br on that skateboard is awesome, and worth teaching her is so precious, what a good dad. will needs to come and learn too, he wants to really bad, not sure if he will be up for the injuries it can come with though.
hollings is such a happy girl, she just makes everyone smile! i love you and your sweet family.
