First I am a mother of two sons, Chad 35 and Ryan 32. Through these beautiful sons, I have been blessed with two beautiful daughter-in-laws, Kelli and Erin. As a result of these beautiful wives comes three beautiful grands, Connor first and the only one for fives years. Then, Kelli and Chad blessed me with another beautiful grandson, Cooper, who is now three. Ryan and Erin blessed me with my first granddaughter, Presley, and now Presley has brother, Harper, who is 2. My blog is really all about family. The reason I chose Magnolia Memories as my blog title is I am from Mississippi! I love Magnolia's. Memories is something that I make everyday. I still have my mother who will be 89 on her birthday in April. My life is centered around my beautiful family. Life is GOOD!

On October 10 2008, my daughter in law Kelli, surprised Chad, (my oldest son) by renewing their wedding vows on the beach. They were married on October 10 1998. Of course Chad had no idea about his surprise, and I had to keep it a secret for over a week. Kelli, Cooper, and her Mom went down on Thursday, October 9, to get everything ready. Chad found out his destination on Friday morning. Kelli did an excellent job keeping it all under tabs. So Chad, Connor, and me, met them at the beach on Friday afternoon. Chad was surprised up until the very last minute. It was a beautiful scene, with the sunset in the background. I feel so lucky that I was able to be a part of this special occasion. Kelli really wanted all of the family to be there, but they had prior commitments. They missed a beautiful setting!
It was also the 37th Annual National Shrimp Festival that weekend. There were tons of people there, as you can see from the photo. I've never been before, it was quite an experience. Hope you enjoyed my first post. There will be many more to come!! Have a great day!!
