Bad Cop, Good Cop

Bad cop, good cop…

As the daughter of an ex-cop and relative of several cops presently serving, we will all tell you there are a few bad cops, but hundreds of good cops.

Dad as a new cop.

Cops that start programs to help kids at risk, cops that check on our elderly, cops that try to bridge the gaps by reaching out to their communities, and all while risking their lives for us ALL, daily.

And there are those who choose to obey the law, and those who refuse to comply; those who try to listen and learn, and those who like to stir the pot for their own agendas.

I personally wouldn’t want to live without the assurity of law and order.

It’s Not All About YOU!

It's not all about you!

You know, it’s not all about you!

My facebook rant today: I am absolutely amazed, confounded, and concerned by so many, esp. in the 20-30 age range, that don’t know our world’s history, nor even know what’s going on today. I feel we’ve become such a self absorbed culture that it’s turned us into a zombie-like nation. I’d like to think we weren’t that clueless when I was that age, but maybe I was blind. Reaching out to a neighbor, the idea of “putting yourself in someone else’s shoes”, taking time to listen to & learn from the life lessons of your elders (whether you agreed with them or not), respecting others’ differences or opinions, traveling abroad in order to serve, just looking to help anywhere, anyhow… wearing yourself out for OTHERS. All this was encouraged, expected even. It was all part of gaining perspective, becoming a valuable citizen, a person of integrity & character, a person your parents, and God, would be proud of. ‪#‎broadenyourworldview‬ ‪#‎servingremovesselfishness‬ ‪#‎turnoffthetv‬ ‪#‎putdowntheiphone‬ ‪#‎getoutsideofYOU‬~ Tammy

Fall Farm Wedding in Georgia

My daughter got married on a beautiful fall day on a picturesque farm in Georgia. She was wearing an Alvina Valenta gown made of lace with blush undertones. She purchased the dress at Fabulous Frocks in Georgia.

The back was just as pretty with buttons going all the way down the train!

Morgan really wanted a flower crown and we asked our wedding designer/venue owner if she could design one. It was her first attempt ever, and it turned out just perfect! ♥

This was a beautiful venue. The farm was picturesque and the farmhouse where the wedding party got ready was just as fantastic. It looked like something right out of magazine. Melanie and her team were phenomenal, and we thoroughly enjoyed working with them. Melanie’s decorating for our outdoor reception and within the barn were just beautiful!
