My Pay It Forward prize is on its way to Mimi All Me! My mom came by for a bit, so I ran out to the P.O. and grocery store ALONE. I was in such a hurry that I didn't photograph the prize OR write a note. Hopefully Mimi will enjoy the prize and pick up my photography slack.

We had a nice trip to KY, although it rained a lot. But the family picnic day was sunny, so we were able to swim with all of the cousins. Even me, who left my swimsuit at my in-laws' house by mistake. That's right, children! Mommy chlorine bleached her new navy shorts for YOU. Don't you forget it.
I managed to be strong and turn down almost everything my in-laws offered us (they are in the process of moving to Florida) because I want to overcome the clutter in our house. "No thank you, I don't need clothing, toys, furniture, candles, Christmas decorations, wall hangings, or a TV. A full set of Lenox china?! With eight place settings?!? Well... Ok... to pass on to your grandchildren."
But other than that, I was strong. I said no. Until Scott told me that his mom was getting rid of her entire cookbook and recipe collection, except for one small recipe binder. If you can turn down a box of cookbooks with titles like The Glorious Goober Cookbook by Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney, you're a stronger person than I am.
