Welcome to JOYFUL REFLECTIONS. Also welcome to MARCH!!!! My header picture this month is a photo I took of the pretty Crocus blooms in our yard... The Crocuses and Daffodils are the first signs of spring here in Tennessee. I am definitely ready for SPRING...

The Sunshine State---Here We Come!!!!

We're headed south for a week or so!!!!! Mrs. P (our Toyota Prius pictured above) is all packed and ready. AND---Miss Barbeak, our GPS (Someday I'll have to tell you how our GPS got her name) has all of the directions and info loaded in her---so that we'll find our way. You'd think we were leaving for a lifetime by the looks of what we are taking... ha ...

This is a combination trip since we'll be doing several things this next week:
-Searching for some new waterfalls in North Georgia
-Visiting my brother in Jacksonville, FL
-Spending a couple of days at Ormond Beach to celebrate my 67th birthday; YOW!!!!
-Having dinner with two of my cousins who live on the east coast of FL; In fact, we'll celebrate all three of our birthdays together. Bonnie (2nd cousin on the Bruce side) and I share a birthday on August 5th, and the other cousin (Suzie, another 2nd cousin on the Bruce side) celebrates her birthday on August 8. SO---we'll have one big celebration for all three of us!!!! Won't that be fun??????
-Then, heading back, we'll drive through the panhandle of Florida and on into Alabama ---and search for some more waterfalls....

How's that for a great week????? Needless to say, I won't be near a computer ---so this will be my last blog until Sunday morning, August 9th. I hope each and every one of you have a fabulous week.
