  • I am obsessed with my juicer.
  • I have an urge to smell a baby's head lately.

What's going on in your world?

I can't believe your babies are graduating either! So what are they both doing next?

Daryl said...

Franklin is a pretty cool place to call home I think!
You might have mentioned your babies were graduating. On the same day. In different places!! Yikes!

There is a wheat field behind our hotel. I would like to walk through it.

For the last several days, we have been in a weather pattern for pop-up thunderstorms. I am weirdly excited about the thought of seeing a tornado. A really, really far away tornado.

Cilantro is the grossest grossest grossest food stuff EVER! (BTW - if you spell something three times, it becomes an official word.)

Keetha said...

I do not like cilantro, either, not even a little bit.

I can't you've never name-dropped Amy Grant! So tell me: Was Vince Gill at home?

It doesn't seem possible that those two kids are finished with college already!

deason said...

Do you sell real estate? Anonymous seems like an interesting guy.

Sally Crowe said...

I can't believe you're old enough to
have babies graduating from university.

Have never had cilantro, looks like I haven't missed a thing. Is it kind of like mary wanner?

When I run away from home; I'm moving to Franklin or somewhere away from here.

I need to rebuild my credit though before you can sell me a house. That might happen around 2022 when I'm 80. :)

You're going to have a wonderful time at the gradutions!

xoxo

Sally Crowe said...

I'm whispering to you "what r gradutions?" :)

I. LOVE. CILANTRO. Seriously, I could eat it nonstop and have some growing in my back yard.

Having just visited your neck of the woods I can honestly say that if I didn't have kids and family obligations keeping me here? I'd move to Franklin in a heartbeat, no questions asked. Baby Sis would too.

We need to plan another visit. Soon.

Qwaa.

Ellen said...

Congrats on your babies graduating. It's a wonderful feeling to know that they have made it. Enjoy graduation, even though you can only make one.

I think we need a weekend in Nashville - you, Annie, Nurse Nancy and I. I've never been there.

Hilary said...

I gagged at just seeing the word cilantro. That stuff is vile.. but only to a small part of the populations. To everyone else, it's just a fresh herb. To me, it's burnt plastic.

Paxie said...

I can't believe it!!

I'm so excited that you are so dang happy! Can hear it in your "voice"!

Can you believe I love it??

Wow...Amy Grant. I like her.

Can you believe my son just went to Washington on the spur of the moment and didn't tell me? I'm getting a tour by iPhone and I have to guess where he is. If I guess correctly he texts "Ding Ding Ding" I love the boy.

And you!!

Grandmother said...

Graduating from college - didn't they just start? Congrats to all involved. And good to be selling real estate in a most desirable market!
