~ You can never have too many desserts, especially Emily's pumpkin cheescake. Or my sweet potato casserole. They were smack-your-momma good!
~ I've always known that my Aunt Joann made the best sweet tea ever. Ever. And bless her sweet health conscious heart, this year she made some with Splenda and then in her beautiful calligraphy, made a gorgeous label for the pitcher that read "Splendor Tea". Well, you thrown in that southern accent of hers and see how you'd say splendor.
~ Group therapy is never as good as when it's with at least twelve of your dearest and craziest southern aunts and uncles. Seriously, Dr. Phil should be worried.
~ According to my seven year old cousin Chandler, everything green should still be referred to as "Jawn Dee-awr greeain". Translated, that's "John Deere green".
~ Miracles of miracles, I wasn't asked the dreaded question this year, "Well, Lu, did you bring anyone special with you?" Nope. No one special. Just me. Maybe next year.
