    I love this red, white and blue color challenge and love making at least one patriotic layout every year. I took this picture in our little downtown and it just speaks "4th of July" to me. The vintage Chevy truck, with some rust on it, the American flat hanging right over it and the fire hydrant.

  12. Mother


    My least favorite word used to describe me was "widow." I've been called several things in the last couple of years...cougar, friend, sister, biker babe, and wife, once again. But I still think my favorite descriptive name is, and will always be, Mother!
