Bye-Bye Ruston

Well, we had a fantastic visit in Ruston and Henry & I were sad to leave. Perspective hit, though, when I arrived here and received word yesterday that one of my Ruston friends, pregnant with her first child, lost her Mom unexpectedly on Saturday night. Just awful. I am reminded of how blessed Adam, Henry & I are. These visits aren't merited- they are gifts. And now we're enjoying my in-laws.

Henry's favorite place was in the kitchen atop the island:

Although we did our best to spot him, he toppled and I am realizing that bumps and bruises may be inevitable in raising a little boy. He is currently sporting a strawberry on his chin from where he had a crawling-skid-collision.

Crazy kid.

Currently reading: The Scarlett Pimpernel. Loaned to me by my ab-fab mother-in-law, Jule.

Currently resolving: To lose the weight that I gained in Ruston. It's hard to eat well when your Mama is cooking (and taking you out to lunch everyday!)

Currently thinking: Thank you Lord for the sunshine and 60+ degree weather, yeah!

Ruston! Saw this on my sidebar and laughed. We have some family from Ruston, LA but never hear about it any otherwise. Sounds like a blessed visit.
