Happy Birthday Baby!

Whoop Whoop….Today Richard Dallas Smith turns 52 years old.  

Who’s the perfect husband?

It’s your gentleness and caring
And the happiness you give
A heart full of warmth and kindness
And the thoughtful way you live 
Who makes a husband special
Is created at the start
The most important thing of all
The love that’s in your heart

Who’s the perfect husband?

YOU ARE!!
Happy Birthday Babe

Love Lee ♥

The Gift That Keeps Giving

Wow, it is hard to believe it came and went so quickly…All the anticipation, planning, and work then it is over just like that!

Typically for a day or two after a big family event there is a little sense of sadness the event is over. This Christmas was not the exception…However, it was less than in years past because Christmas is not officially over for me.

One of the gifts I gave continues to require quite a bit of work!

Our youngest daughter Brandi has been asking about childhood pictures. I had to admit to her I had been a very poor manager of the family photos. Well, no more! I decided to get busy and work on getting our old photos scanned and stored electronically. Then once scanned, I will move the photos over to the portable drive I gave her for Christmas. Once all the old photos are loaded, she will only need to bring her portable drive over every so often to receive our most recent photos.

What a trip down memory lane this has been…It is amazing all that has happened in our lives over 33 years of marriage. With each photo comes the flood of emotions evoked by the memories surrounding the image of the person, place or event.

I am so blessed to have such awesome family and friends. Each time we come together we make such incredible memories…Photos help me keep the memories vibrant and alive. While I am not a photographer and half the time can not figure out how to use my camera, I do enjoy taking lots of pictures with the goal of passing forward our memories of family to the next generation.

So, the next time you see camera flashes, don’t say “Oh No, Not More Pictures” Instead say…

“Click me…Click me…Document My Existance…I want to be a part of the memory”.

A Few Memories of the Kids and Grandkids

One final thought…Photos are not enjoyed by all unless they are shared…

I Still Do…Happy Anniversary Richard ♥

I remember standing at the back of the church thinking…”THIS IS IT…THE MOMENT I HAVE WAITED FOR ALL MY LIFE”.

December 18, 1977 I said “I Do” to the man of my dreams. It has been amazing how those two words have impacted every aspect of my life since! I adore you and am so proud to be Mrs. Richard Dallas Smith; honored, cherished, esteemed, and adored by you for 33 past years.

 Rather than re-cap our lives together in written word, I thought you might enjoy a few pictures.

 After all…A picture is worth a thousand words!!!

I cherish the memories of our yesterdays and look forward to many tomorrows with you!!!
