The Best Journey Takes You Home….

Last summer, we traveled “home”.  For us, that means the small, Southern Illinois town of Greenville.  It’s where I grew up, went to high school and college, fell in love, married and started a family. 

This little town has one grocery store and one McDonalds.  The County Courthouse sits on the town square, surrounded by mom & pop businesses.  Even after being away from there for 30 years, I can still walk down the street and see someone I went to high school with, or someone who new my mom and dad.

My in-laws still live there.  In July, they celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary.  Sixty years of marriage, seven children, 23 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.

It was a wonderful weekend of stories and photographs and best of all, FAMILY.  All of our children were able to make it, and all but one grandchild (due to a Flower Girl commitment in Indiana). 

I am blessed beyond means.
