This Guy....

(so handsome)

...turned 39 yesterday!
Last year of his thirties...
guess we better make it count!!!

He's a really good man.
Puts up with a lot!
...I am kind of crazy chaotic...
He rolls with it pretty well.
He works REALLY hard to provide a GREAT life...
for the kids and I.
He doesn't ask for much in return.

I am THANKFUL for him everyday...
even when I am being unreasonable and it might not seem like it.
I know I am VERY blessed.

I love you Steve!
I hope 39 is the best year yet!
Thank you for loving me.

Have you all heard of Kiva?

 Kiva is a non-profit organization with a mission
to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty.
Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions,
Kiva lets individuals lend as little as
$25 to help create opportunity around the world.

I love this concept...
it's so easy to lend $25.00...
and when many do that same thing...
a loan is funded.
A helping hand is given.
LOVE this.

 I decided to start a team for

 If you'd like to join my team just click on the link above...

Dare to reach out your hand into the darkness,
to pull another hand into the light.

Summer is...

...almost here!

In fact today is the last day of school for the boys...
at 1:00 and 1:30 summer officially began...
for the Curry boys.

Can I just say it's just beautifully green here right now?

 ok maybe not that green but close:

Green for a very dry place.

Don't you just love the entrance to our subdivision?
Two of the three entrances have large green spaces...
(not sure technically but that is what I call them)
It never gets old.
LOVE it!
It rained from last Tuesday thru Friday.
Ditches, creeks, local fishing "lake" all very full.
 Greens are very green.
Going to make sure I enjoy it while it lasts!

The sun came out Saturday and has been shining since...
which allowed for a beautiful weekend.
Running, yard work, flower planting...

 Yes summer is almost here.
 And I look forward to many a full weekends.

Very thankful indeed!
