Five on Friday

It's FRIDAY and only two days left in the month of May--my favorite month of the year is coming to an end.

Today, I'm linking up with the gals for 5 on Friday.

Graham and I try to take the girls out on individual "dates" once or twice a month.  This week was AG's turn.  She and I shared a good meal, good conversation, and some shopping at Hobby Lobby.

My little Joyful is so sweet...I was folding clothes and glanced up to see her peering out the window at her big sisters playing in the pool.

 It won't be long, JoJo!

Did y'all get to check out this week's What You Wish Wednesday link-up?  I'm thrilled to be teaming up with Stasia, Nikki, and Melissa for this new link-up endeavor.  If you missed Wednesday's party, check back next week--we'd love to have you.  It's easy to join in--just link-up what you wish.
Join us this Wednesday!

Tomorrow, Graham and I celebrate eleven years of wedded bliss!  ELEVEN years, y'all!!  

 I love him more now than I ever thought about loving him then!

Did y'all get to check out my new blog series?  Here's the deal: Each week, I'm going to give a little tour of my home, room by room...imperfections and all!  Click HERE to check out my first post in the series.

Have a great weekend!  I'm looking forward to a fancy date with my one and only to celebrate our eleventh anniversary! 


  1. Happy anniversary!! I'm so excited to be following along with you & your blog!

    Eleven years! We are coming up on 5 years and I can hardly believe it, but it seems like it has gone so fast, but I can't imagine 11! Hope you all have an excellent anniversary! And I love your new home tour series. Can't wait to see more.

  3. Thanks...wedding pics before the days of digital photography!! :) I'm sad that May is ending!

  4. ELEVEN years sounds like a long time, doesn't it!? Ha! Hopefully I can get some pics taken of another room for the series and have a new one up next Thursday.

  5. Congrats on 11 years of marriage!!! Can I just say you have not ages one bit in 11 years!! You still look so young and beautiful!

  6. Thanks, Chrissy. You are my new favorite person!

  7. Thanks for stopping by Leslie. We do the date nights too. We used to assign each of our 3 children 4 months of the year, but now that they are 14, 12, and 9, we are too busy. So, they get a birthday date with me and with my husband each year. I'm not sure who loves the dates more, the kids or us!

  8. Awe, how cute of little Joy looking at her big sisters outside swimming. It won't be long for her.

    Happy 11th anniversary! Our daughter and SIL celebrated their 11th last Dec. We're celebrating 43 this next Friday. Yikes! that's a long time!

    Blessings for a beautiful Lord's Day!


I'd love to hear from you. Please leave me a comment.

For our joy and His glory,
