Take Me Back In Time.

My aunt shared this with me last week..
I have been determined to make each day as beautiful as possible,
not allowing anything or anyone to steal away my joy!
So here is to a joyful spirit~
and not allowing the worries of everyday to steal your joy!
Let us live life to the fullest, taking advantage of each minute we have with those around us
and the ability to shed light in the lives of others!
I don't want to waste one single minute of my life...

As a reminder I keep this verse on my dashboard in my car.
Romans 15:13
May the God of hope fill you with all the joy and peace as you trust in him, 
so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Ok, ok, so I went overboard on the pictures below, but I could not choose just a few
from our trip to Jefferson, Tx this I uploaded a bunch of my favorites!
My mother and I took my baby sister and her friend for a graduation present.
If you have never been to Jefferson, please put it on your places to see!
It is the cutest and most quaint town.
You feel like you are in a different world, like the twilight zone.
I never want to leave and am terribly sad when I do.
Do you ever just want to go back in time?
I do, and that is what happens when you visit here..
Did I mention, it is also haunted!?
Jefferson is in the top ten haunted cities in America!
We stayed at the Jefferson Hotel, which is know for their hauntings.
Do your research, I tell the truth!
But I just wanted to share through these pictures. the fun times we had!
Sight seeing, ghost touring, antique shopping, etc.

A weekend to remember.

In front of the infamous haunted Jefferson Hotel.
Mom had Aldyn and me stand in front of a door, and act 'casual'.
These huge doors were absolutely gorgeous~another attribute to Jefferson is the architecture.
I would live in the 50's, if possible.
We got super silly here, mom and I.
She cracks me up, just adore her.
In the staircase of the Jefferson Hotel.
My face, who knows?
 Mom talking about RM 19, the most haunted room..We stayed in the room right next to it!
Nothing happened that night, just sweet dreams for me.
My mom knows how to kick up her heels! Sister not so much, haha.
In front of such a beautiful old church.
Converse queens, my mom passed on this tradition.
In front of Diamond Bessie's grave, a woman's story you should google!
On the Haunted Ghost Walk in front of a "Haunted" house, I was scared.
Looks like you've seen a ghost?
Our tour guide, Jodi Breckenridge, who has been on A&E's My Ghost Story and Fact or Fiction!
Good times at the General Store. Ice Cream float? Why yes, thank you!
Antique Shopping and finding great treasures like this hat from the 30's!
Sister love.
I am so glad I captured the beautiful memories of this weekend!

I hope everyone has an incredible Father's Day weekend!
Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's out there!
