Earth laughs in flowers... Ralph Waldo Emerson

A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell.

I am having a few friends over for lunch today.
I am serving salad, fresh baked bread, iced tea and lemon bars.
Just a simple meal for a rainy spring day in Texas.
I just wanted to take a little time to catch up with
the girls closest to me in my life.
A little time to say thank you for always being there.

I also want to take the time today to thank
my sweet NEW friend at A Little Shabby Always Chic
for giving me both of these awards!!!
She is the kindest and lovliest young woman!!!
So generous with her time and words!!!
We share our love for California as well
as all things beautiful!!!
Be sure and stop by her charming will love it!!!

Thank you again sweet Allidink!!!
I hope everyone is
having a wonderful day!!!
Lots of Love!!!
