John's mom and step-dad live in Memphis.
We spent Tuesday evening with them and his sister, Morgan, and had a fantastic sushi dinner to celebrate his birthday.
After the sushi we came back to the house and I took a zillion pictures of their flower gardens.
The sun was going down and the light made everything even prettier.
It's such a pretty house. I've only ever been there for the holidays, and I've never seen any of it in bloom. But wow, it really blooms.
It's a pretty photogenic house.
John's mom gave me my birthday present (two months early, the way I like it).
That's a really flexible necklace. You can bend it every which way. For instance:
Also, shoe soap. Discuss.
Next stop: Springfield, IL. I think I'm going to get John to go see the Lincoln sites with me. It's sort of a Shupe/Klickna rite of passage.
