Rusty nails...


You ever had a day where so much needed to get done but didn't?


I'm ignoring that list and it's tapping foot....tap tap tap..


Today is one of those days.

I'm just giving in to it.

Even if it's just for an hour or a quick chat with you.



Funny thing happened yesterday..

My little bounced into the car after cheer practice begging for a ride to the Goodwill.

Wellllll alrighty now.. I have rubbed off on her I'm guessing.

It was only short lived though.

She informed me that

"nerd day"

 is tomorrow.... I stand corrected.


So I gathered up a group of giggly 13 yrs olds and we headed for the Thrift store.

Only to end up at Wal Mart, due to the fact that they must all match.

Ha ha...


High wasted, elastic banned blue jean shorts and a red and grey polo was their liking.

They will complete their ensemble with sport knee socks and black glasses..




These are the good times y'all.

They remind me of fall and homecoming weeks.

Giggly girls in the backseat.




I know it really doesn't have much to do with ironstone nor pumpkins...

It's just my reminder to catch these moments and hold em snugly in my heart.


It's days like these that I'm grateful for rusty nails...

and



 His reminders of love for YOU and me.

xoxo Susie

  7. I love this...I rush through my days just wishing sometimes this season of our lives would go away, but I miss the goodness within it when I do that.
