Summer Is One Of My Favorite Words!

Summer is one of my favorite words...Ever since I was a little girl the word "summer" conjured up thoughts of fun and freedom!  This summer has not disappointed.  

Summer started during Memorial Day Weekend for me and mine as we spent a week together at Tybee Island.  Our family has grown into a big group (yay! the more the merrier!) and we spread out among three little cottages:

Coral Cottage...btw did you see the article on Coral Cottage that is in the 
July/August 2014 issue of HGTV magazine?

and Bead Cottage


My sister Crystal joined the party and we had quite the family reunion!  

Bill, me, Crystal, and our cousin John with his wife Judy

We kicked off the week with my nephew Billy's high school graduation.


Billy is my brother Bill and his wife Kim's only child and he has always been totally lovable.  Rarely do you meet a teenager who has friends of every age group, who seems really interested in what his aunt of a certain age has to say and can hold up his end of the conversation...Billy is that guy.  

Here Billy is with his mom Kim who prepared quite a 
special event to celebrate the occasion!

Just look at the I know why they used to call sideboards "groaning boards" because these tables were groaning with the weight of all the beautiful and tasty food!  I snapped a few photos while Kim was setting things out...

We had a great evening visiting and celebrating Billy while being serenaded by a great band called The Accomplices.

Bill and Kim throw the best parties!  All the guests, young and young at heart alike, had a 
great evening!
