september roses


we have had this tiny rose bush for a long time.  we moved it to the front yard and it got upset and turned into pathetic sticks with no leaves and no flowers.  we just recently moved it to the back yard and were shocked to see leaves and roses!  so glad it came back to life and gave us some flowers in september!

have a great weekend!

love, laurie

is it fall?

not too sure about this weather.  it was hot and humid . . . then it got cooler and started to feel like fall . . . then it got hot and humid again.  regardless of whether or not the weather knows if it's fall, the holderness family is making me laugh again.

10 years old!

this month our baby boy turns 10 years old!  last night, ryan and i were reminiscing about when we first brought leko home and how tiny he was back then.  

we absolutely can't believe that he's a decade old, how did that happen?!  we're celebrating our baby all month long with lots of extra hugs, kisses, and tuna of course!

love, laurie

carpenters tribute concert


on saturday we had a carpenters tribute concert at our theatre.  this show, along with the rest of our fall series, was postponed because of the pandemic, so i've been working on this show for 2 years now!

i'm glad we finally got to have the show, and it went great.  here are just a few of the many photos i took during the show.  you can see more of my photos on the theatre's facebook page here.

gearing up for another show this weekend!


we're working on a carpenters tribute show that will be at our theatre this weekend, and we're looking forward to it.  we had some work done on the piano that was donated to us last fall and we're hoping to be able to use it this weekend for the show.  when we moved it onto the stage and got it in place, ryan sat right down and much to my surprise started playing chords.  i was like, "what?!  who are you?!"  never fails to amaze me.  not sure where he whipped that out of!

love, laurie

la festa italiana 2021


i've mentioned numerous times that my favorite end of summer tradition is visiting our local italian festival over labor day weekend.  it's especially important to us since it's where we went on our very first date back in 2004.  

we were so sad that the festival was canceled last year because of the pandemic, so it made it even better to have it back this year after two whole years of waiting!

we headed down to the italian festival on friday night after work to grab some dinner and watch some entertainment.  we went back down again on sunday night for dinner and fireworks.  we finished off the weekend by heading down on monday for one last time for lunch and entertainment.

let the countdown begin for next year's festival!

love, laurie

hello, labor day


i'm happy to have the day off work today!   labor day always seems like the end of summer to me.  i'm sad to see summer go, but i always do enjoy the fall.  i won't miss the insane humidity we had this summer!  slightly cooler temps are welcome!

happy monday!
love, laurie
