LIFE'S LITTLE DETAILS


"THE DETAILS ARE NOT THE DETAILS. THEY MAKE THE DESIGN." — CHARLES EAMES
Happy Tuesday, sweet readers! Catching up at this point seems a little pointless. My sincerest apologies for being absent from this colorful corner. It wasn't necessarily part of my master plan, but moving always forces you to flex as needed. So much has happened since we last touched base, but I won't submit you to that. There were times when we thought we were never going to make it out of Swell Rio (we seriously got Flyboy's orders the afternoon BEFORE he left for Oklahoma last Wednesday), but this Christmas miracle is FINALLY happening. In fact, the packers come to pick up all the boxes today and we'll bid this border town adieu tomorrow morning. Those of you that have been here for the long haul know that this farewell will be bittersweet. There were days when we cursed this snooze town and counted the days until we could get out of Dodge, but it's also the longest I've ever lived in one spot (7 out of my 32 years have been spent here) and a lot of growth has taken place while we've called Laughlin AFB home. Lucky for us, we get to take the sweetest souvenir from Swell Rio with us (Hey, Max!) and a piece of West Texas will stick with us forever.
  

Pin It!
