I can't believe this is my 900th blog post! I imagine that a hefty number of those posts mention family, trees, strangers and (of course) coffee.

Here I am with my boots (and sweet Hayden hovering nearby) standing by my Great-Granddaddy's boots and my Mom's boots. Lucchese's a bit of a tradition in our family (my Mom and her siblings got them as a gift upon graduating high school - hers were some of the last actually hand-molded to her foot shape by Sam Lucchese himself).
-Chuckling to myself as I read a book.
-Stars peeking through shadowy trees with silvery, sparkly light.
