Livin' the Dream

"Think Big Thoughts...Savor Small Pleasures."
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Do you ever have an event that you look forward to?
Saturday I attended such an event.
Our realtor/friend, Kama, and her husband, Ian
know how to celebrate and thank those in their life
with a party at their horse ranch.
 It is a time to wear the cowboy boots,
kick up our heels, and play.

And play we did with laughter, dancing, and smiles all around.
How fun to meet smiling people and to see the children free to chase bubbles.
There are stories in these faces, some I know and some are yet to be learned.
Listening to music and celebrating the day is something
I look forward to every four years.
Love the Air Stream, where the drinks were served.
The food was amazing!  I am dreaming of the
delicious salads, barbecued chicken and pulled pork,
and oh yes, strawberry shortcake too.

"If you're not focused on people,
you don't get the picture."
Shawna Schuh

"Nothing great ever happens inside your comfort zone."
Kama Dersham, Kama Homes

The quotes were included on a tall mug we each received as a thank you gift.
What great reminders.
If you ever need a great realtor in the Portland area, just let me know, Kama's the very best.

How fabulous that all looked - wish I was there. I do have my cowgirl boots ready for such a hoedown party some day!

Loved that last quote and I think you and I know exactly what it means............we've definitely stepped, and sometimes flown, right out of our comfort zones wouldn't you agree dear!!!!?

Glad it was so much fun under sunny skies.
Love, Mary
