A Hidden Jewel

About a month ago, April and I had a brief get-away. It was much needed and much enjoyed... It simply did not last long enough. We found a wonderful b&b just outside of Hattiesburg, MS. We have stayed at several b&b's over the years, and we agree that this one (True Vine Cottage) is at least tied at the top of the list.

The cottage sits near a large pond, well off the beaten path. Between the birds, geese, and the wonderful flower gardens, there is plenty to enjoy from the porch swing. The screened porch in the back connects to a beautiful courtyard, complete with running fountain.

The furnishings inside the two-bedroom cottage are charming and elegant. Everything was very clean and welcoming. I highly recommend True Vine Cottage for any occasion. Here's the website:

Father-Daughter Picnic

Last Saturday, my daughters and I attended a Father-Daughter Picnic in Baton Rouge. We had a great time
together! As we sat listening to the guest speaker, I looked at each of my girls and
realized how each one is growing into a beautiful, young lady.

I am very proud of and thankful for my wonderfully inquisitive, silly, and sweet girls!
