Friday Evening Fun with Family
Hello friends! I am so happy to have you drop by to visit. I trust you had a lovely weekend and are preparing for a new week ahead. Today I wanted to share a few photos taken Friday evening in a tiny neighboring town on the Gulf of Mexico named Horseshoe. There isn't much in this tiny town except homes, a post office, a couple small grocery/bait and tackle stores, & a campground. There have been a few restaurants come and go over the years. The big storm we had last year destroyed the restaurant that was there. I'm not entirely sure if there is another one now or not.
We went to a dinner thrown by a few of my mother-in-law's friends to celebrate her finishing her cancer treatments. Such a blessing! Before we went to the dinner, we rode down to the point to snap a few photos.
Like I said, there isn't much to do here but if you want some downtime and peace and quiet, this is the place for you. It is a lovely
little tiny town. I had a long, somewhat stressful week last week and wasn't feeling very well for much of it, so this peaceful evening was just what I needed.
Here I am with my handsome hubby...I love this man so much. He truly is my best friend!
Miranda was able to come meet us and go to the dinner with us since she got off work early that day. Dakota wasn't able to attend but he had just went to visit his grandma a couple days prior. We had an absolutely delicious dinner. I wish I had snapped a picture. I can't believe I didn't remember to do that. You could have seen a true southern dinner. After we ate, the hubby, Miranda, Joyce (my MIL), and I walked down to the boat ramp to watch the sunset.
This pretty little wildflower caught my eye.
There are some gorgeous homes in Horseshoe. And, if you are willing to drop a million or two, you can own one yourself. Oh how I wish...lol! I would settle for a tiny lot to park an RV on. One of the homes for sale looks like a ship. I didn't notice it in time to take a picture but I will go back someday and take one when I do.
It's not white sandy beaches like you might expect, but there is a beach area a few miles away. People who enjoy fishing and kayaking or just a slow pace of life live in or visit Horseshoe. Many of the residents have lived there for their entire lives. One of my dad's sisters and her husband own an island not too far from here. I have never been to it, but how cool...imagine owning your own island!
I took the next two photos from Miranda's Facebook. Here she is with her grandma. I love this picture. Two beautiful ladies and two of the biggest blessings in my life. :)
Here's grandma being silly! Miranda was her first grandchild...she was the first on both sides actually. And, she was the only one Joyce had until I had Dakota nearly six years later. She loves her grandbabies so very much...even though they aren't babies anymore. She has been an amazing grandma to my children and second mom to me. She is a sweet spirited lady with a positive outlook who enjoys life so much. Thank you all who have kept her in your thoguhts and prayers. We have three long months to wait before we know if the treatments did their job.
I have faith that they did. Thank you so much for visiting Horseshoe with us.
Until next time.....
