For today, WW is up and running, but . . .

We are having a HUGE family reunion, so my blog will be CLOSED for the next three weeks or so--June 29-July 21. If I have time, I might post a few pictures.

Wordless Wednesday will resume on July 22 and the winner of today's WW will be announced then. The gift card will still be rewarded on time.

I will miss you all!
Hope you are enjoying your summer!

  1. THANK YOU!! Have fun.

    Love makes a basket case of us all - ''foreshore''

    (I couldn't help myself.)


    1. You made me smile first thing this morning, Mary! Your answer cracks me up. Very clever!
      Oh, and you're welcome. Great answer last week as well.

  2. Congrats Mary! Great answer.

    Love can be found where you least expect it.

    Taylor, have a great time at your family reunion.


    1. Thank you, Rita. We all live far away from each other and it's so nice to get together and see everyone.
      I love your answer this week!

  3. Hide it in a basket! No! I'm going to let my love shine!


  4. Let your love out


    1. Thanks for joining us for WW today, Robin! Your answer is wonderful!

  5. Congrats!

    love as big as the ocean

    1. That would be mighty big! And the person receiving that kind of love would be lucky indeed. Love your answer, bn!

  6. Congrats Mary. Nice answer!

    If you love it, set it free.

    1. Hmmmm . . . that does go perfectly with the image, doesn't it? Nice job, Laura!

  7. Congrats, Mary! I think this looks like a snake charmers basket, so I'll say, "Your love charms me."

  8. Congrats Mary!!
    Oh no, you're killing me Taylor!! I've been missing my WWs, and now you're leaving!! Haha, just kidding. I mean, I DO miss WW, but I'm kidding about the other part :P I hope that you have a wonderful time with your family!!
    You shape my heart like a ball of clay.
    Our love will break away. or Our love will break free.

    1. Thank you, Natalie! I will miss WW, but I know I'm going to be too busy to worry about it. It seemed like a good idea to just close down for three weeks than try to get blog posts done while trying to visit with family.
      I hope your vacation was WONDERFUL! (and that the flights weren't too bad!)
      Great answers today! I missed you!

    2. Aw, thank you :) I missed you all as well!!
      It was so much fun!! I didn't want to leave!! :( I think in the future we are going to get a place in Ecuador so that we can visit the country and his family for a few weeks to months per year (depending on whether or not I have summers off each year). The flights actually weren't that bad! I didn't get sick at all!! And I even cut back on the amount of Xanax I took before each flight...the first one I had had about four Xanax, possibly more (small dosages, so no overdosing). By the last flight, I had only had ONE!!
      I completely agree with you; it would be so hard to keep up with everything, and you just want to enjoy your family :) I hope that you guys make lots of memories during the next few weeks!

    3. Thanks, Natalie! I'm so glad your trip went well. And the flights too. I get horribly motion sick, so I don't like to fly. It would take an emergency to get me up in the air!
      And a summer place in Ecuador sounds amazing!
      See you again in three weeks!

  9. Congrats, Mary. Perfect answer. I thought you might take the prize. :-)

    Love is not perfect.

    I hope you have a fantastic time!!!!!

    1. Thank you! I'm looking forward to a break from everything! I will return feeling renewed!

      Your answer made me think, as they often do, Sherry. I love a thoughtful answer! Nice job!
