a m a z i n g!!!!
now if we could only get some rain. the drought continues here in texas and it is so bad. fires everywhere. ugh...just terrible. but anyways...on a happy note...i finally got through some of my vacation pictures. and wanted to share some shots of my parents' house! you will love it. it is like a mexican vacation spot. a really, really nice one. full of bright, happy colors, family heirlooms, religious icons, big bold furniture pieces, mixed patterns, funky art and mexican treasures. when they bought this place there was not a plant in sight...just a couple palm trees. now it's a lush, cozy retreat. you seriously feel like you are in another world when you are there. my mom has such a talent for decorating...it should be her job. and their home should be in a magazine for sure. i haphazardly jumped out of the car and took these shots as we were leaving town and my iPhone pictures do not do it a bit of justice...so forgive the poor quality of some of these. even so...you will be ready to move in! here ya go...
