Happy 30th Birthday

to this lovely lady!   Jessica Terry Burke and I have known each other for about 15 years now, and we were fast friends and have stayed close over many miles and stages of our lives.  I wish I could be with her today to celebrate 30 years of her.

If I was there, we would have coffee, go to some delicious bakery, have a healthy lunch, and then a huge delicious cake!  It would be amazing.

Jess, I love you and hope that today is the start of the best years of your life.  You are a doll face, and I am so thankful to have you in my life!

Brant Lake, NY

I will be heading out to Brant Lake this week to spend a few days on 'business' with the full-time staff at my office.

Brant Lake is a small lake in the Adirondack Mountains, and it is pretty much a piece of Heaven on Earth.  I have spent a few weeks there in the past, and I just cannot wait to sit on the Adirondack chairs on the wrap around porch, book and coffee in hand.  Oh just thinking about it makes me fuzzy inside.

The weather last year was frigid, but this year it is supposed to be perfect.  Highs around 80 and lows in the 50s... what more could you ask for really?

Stay tuned for fun pics of the vaca  I mean business trip :)

I can't believe he is turing 5!!!

On Saturday, July 10th, this adorable little man will be turning 5 years old... 5, can you believe it?!?!?  I cannot believe that Brayden is already 6, Davis is turning 5, and Gracie is 4.  The time has just flown by!  Even though it has only been almost 3 years since Davis came into our lives, he has been the perfect match for our sweet family.  Even though we weren't there 5 years ago when he was born, he was birthed in our hearts and has grown into the sweetest young man and I honestly cannot imagine our lives without him. 

The joy that smile brings is nothing short of contagious and every person he hangs around wants to scoop him up and take him home with him.

G. Davis McElheny,

Uncle Slim and I are crazy about you!  We miss you and wish we could celebrate with you on Saturday!  Play hard and have a blast.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

We love you, sweet boy!
