Well, since I haven't downloaded all of the pictures from both cameras yet, here are a few pictures from the first camera. I still can't quite thinking about how beautiful the land is in Illinois, and Indiana. The one other thing that keeps coming back to my mind is SIMPLICITY. I have been working on this particular word fro some time now. I have written about it before. I have to say on this trip I saw it, witnessed it, and loved it! The people that I shared the week with are the real deal! Happy, funny, loving, good hearted, kicked back, enjoying life, and the type that I adore! There is something to be said about "keeping it real." I have to thank them for the gentle reminder. The other thing that is of #1 importance to me is my step sister Chelle. She looked happier than I have ever seen her. Don't get me wrong she is happy, but she was glowing this week! She has met a man that adores her! Jim is one of those guys that you can't help but love. They met probably a good 20 years or so ago. Finally they are together! I want to thank both of them for allowing us to spend this special time with them. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

There are a few typos, blogger won't let me fix them!
