Saturday:) Surprises, Smiles, and Sunflowers

28 Jun

“The very best adventures are not planned. They’re more like a phone call saying, “Put your shoes on, I’m picking you up in half an hour.”

~ Toni Armenta Andrukaitis


“Advice from a sunflower: Be bright, sunny and positive. Spread seeds of happiness. Rise, shine and hold your head high.”



My dear friend Sherri Murphy is my, “Put your shoes on” kinda friend. Sherri called me today and asked if I wasn’t busy, maybe I’d like to go on adventure. I said, “Let me check my calendar. Hmm? I don’t have anything penciled in until late November.” I love adventures.

Her daughter told her about a magnificent field of sunflowers near Whitewright that wasn’t too far away, and was too beautiful to miss. So, I put my shoes on, and off we went. Kimmie was right.

These photos cannot capture the splendor of these amazing fields of sunflowers, as far as the eye could see. And, there was another field just a little further down the road. We had to stop and take some pictures, of course.

We saw a few other interesting sights along the way.

It was another wonderful impromptu day filled with surprises, sunflowers and lots of smiles. (And friendly goats.)

Happy Saturday, my friends.

    Can anything make you smile like sunflowers?

      Nope! Sunflowers are so beautiful, tall, and majestic.
