They are only words spoken from the mouth
Consonants, vowels, and various sounds
Their significance can be minute or grand
Depending on outlook and where one stands
Along the journey there may be potholes
So endurance must settle deeply in the souls
For as time passes and age becomes clearer
The bond that has formed becomes even dearer
I take you to be my lawfully wedded husband,
To have and to hold, from this day forward,
For better, for worse, for richer, for poorer,
In sickness and in health, until death do us part
I would say these words again without hesitation
Because he is my breath in all creation
(Today is our 28th wedding anniversary) ♥ ♥ ♥
WordPress tells me that it’s my 6th anniversary, but I seem to be one year off. Anyway, I’ll take it if it’s cause for celebration. 🙂 This blogging journey has been wonderful in so many ways, mostly because I’ve met all of you! I know I’ve taken some breaks, and I also haven’t blogged in the last few weeks because this class I’m taking demands a LOT of homework. I’m trying to find some type of balance, but I guess I’m just moving around here slowly. I’m done with this week’s h/w though, which is due tomorrow by noon, so I’m going to dive into my inundated email this morning and read some blogs I’ve unintentionally ignored. ♥
I’ll end with, not only a fun haiku for the new autumn season (ironically, we’re having 100 degree weather), but with also another BIG “Thank You” for all your likes and comments, but most importantly, your friendship, love, and support. ♥

sandles in hybernation
hello socks and boots
HAVE A WONDERFUL AND PEACEFUL SUNDAY! SENDING LOTS OF LOVE, LAUREN ♥
Today just happens to be
a day honoring coffee
so pull up a chair
I promise to share
the aroma is enticing
with no overpricing
there are coffee fixings, too,
of course, don’t overdo
it’s free; won’t cost a dime
so if you have the time
and you’re feeling so inclined
enjoy some java and some peace of mind 🙂

You registered on WordPress.com 5 years ago!
Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging!
Another year zoomed by since I last celebrated with WordPress and
I’ll repeat my story from last year…I opened this blog in 2010,
became active in 2011, so I’m always one year behind. 🙂
In addition to my “blogiversary”, I’d like to celebrate the making of new friends, the joy of learning, the amazing following, the expansion of communication, and most of all, the fun! Cheers to taking life less seriously and having more fun!
Writing for our blogs is a great hobby; it gives us the opportunity to meet new people along the way. What could be better?
So thank you, EVERYONE, for your continued support! I began this journey before I turned the big 50 and now it’s been five years? Sigh…oh well, let the fun continue…
and now please join me in celebrating by singing, dancing,
and toasting to another awesome blogging year!
Sending lots of love, Lauren ♥ ♫ xo
Soft serve on a cone
Hot dogs at the fair
Popcorn at the movies
Adventures if we dare
Bikes on the streets
Longer days to play
Sunscreen on our noses
for a hike on any day
Surfers on a wave
Towels on the sand
Parties in the pools
Dancing to the band
Moonlit strolls for lovers
Cool drinks with lime
Oh, how we love you
Sweet, sweet Summertime

(Hope you’re enjoying summer!)
Our flag proudly flies
holding men and women in
its bold stars and stripes
Colors in the sky
together we “ooh” and “ahhh”
Wishing you all who celebrate a fun and safe Fourth of July!
Each year we go to our county fair, which is our plan for today.
And each year it’s the same, nothing changes,
yet the experience is still fun as we view the exhibits, the animals,
ride the big Ferris Wheel, take in the great music, enjoy some wine and beer
and of course, enjoy the fair food…my faves are gyros and root beer floats. 🙂
So have a Happy time and a Wonderful Weekend!
Sharing Love and Hugs, Lauren

In honor of our daughter’s university graduation, I found this quote, which I thought was perfect for today’s festivities and celebrations. The gorgeous photo is from my good friend, Sabrina.
Our daughter has persevered not only academically but also personally and today she’ll walk across the finish line with a Bachelor’s Degree in hand. To say we’re proud doesn’t even cover all the emotions. 🙂
So go out and Live, Dream, Act and Believe!
Sending much love, Lauren ♥
