Oh my goodness... what a small world! You look great and just how I remember you... thanks for letting me know! Mom did have the boys a few weeks ago and they love to go see their cousins and uncles and go to Elba. I am sure June 2015 can't get here soon enough for you to get back!

Thanks again for joining and please spread the word. I am curious to know how you found us... did Mama tell you or did you find us thru other Elba connections? We obviously just got started but have some really neat things happening in the next month so be sure to check in. We also have some contests going on right now where you can win a trip to WaterColor, FL or a Big Green Egg s be sure to enter and tell others!

Just go to these links:
