I've been hesitant to say anything...b/c I like for things to be a "sure" thing before I start talking too much about my last post I mentioned we had a contract offered on our home in Texas the first week it was listed...however, the couple who wanted the house had to sell their home first and we weren't really ready to accept an offer with a contingency....WELL...guess what??? They sold their house 4 days after they put the offer in on they re-submitted their offer w/o the I suppose when everything works their getting funding and close on their current home, inspections are complete and ALL goes well...we will be closing on June 25th. You can not believe how PERFECT this prayer was that our home sell quickly and that we could stay in our home till at least the last couple of weeks of June...because I am currently working on 2 weddings for that on the 12th and the other on the 19th...I wanted to be able to be in my own home surrounded by family until all the weddings were done! Looks like my prayers have been answered!! We still have folks coming and looking at our home, in fact we have an appointment tomorrow for a realtor to show it! We will continue to do so until we know for sure all has gone right with this current contract...but from what I understand the couple who wrote the contract want our home very badly, so I DO hope if it's meant to works out for all of us. Thanks to all of you who have joined me in my prayers...I am relieved to have most of this behind now I can concentrate on these 2 spectacular weddings AND getting packed and ready to head west.

In the meantime...I will share with you some gorgeous pictures my daughter and daughter in law took of our property in California while we were all there over the Mothers Day Weekend...ENJOY!!

An old bench that sits in the back portion of our property...I love it and wonder just how it came to be there...and who used to sit on this lovely and dream the day away....

One of three lovely peony shrubs in the front portion of my gardens...they are just about the most lovely flower I can imagine if I can just learn about Freesia and if it grows in northern Cali...I will be one HAPPY gal!

One of many beautiful rose bushes in our front garden...this is one of my varies from very pale pink to gorgeous...and the sweet smell is heavenly!

I believe these are native to fact I think they are the state flower...the California poppy...don't quote me on this...I'm still learning...but isn't it GORGEOUS...I feel so blessed that the previous owners loved flowers as much as I do...and man what a green thumb they had...I'm going to have to really read up to manage them as well as they did.

Another lovely rose bush...this one looks as though it is some sort of antique rose...the color variations are just unbelievable...I love it, too!

I hope to have pictures of our home in California to post, soon...I took some while there...but I fear I may have already packed away the cord that goes to the camera to download pictures...WHATEVER that thing-a-ma-jiggy is called!!

What exciting news! I pray things go exactly right so you can easily begin your new life in California. The photos from your new garden are incredible. I can't wait to see photos of the new house and gardens. Speaking of photos, you KNOW I'd love to see some photos from the weddings too.

This is the most wonderful news! I am so happy for you! I know I have been so negligent in writing to you lately, but life has been overwhelming here! Just know that I am praying for all the 'goings on' you have...the weddings and the packing and the moving...OH MY! you are in 'overwhelmed land', too! Love the pics and can hardly wait to see the new home!
Take care!

Congratulations!!! How wonderful for all families involved. Man-o-man that was fast...I wish that *something* would happen for my parents...they have been waiting for their home and my late grandmother's home to sell for more than a year! You are truly Blessed ~ :) Love your flowers, too!
