Life is a test. We are not present on earth to just exist; we are here to learn. Life is a lesson. Love one another unconditionally. Love thyself unconditionally. We spend our whole lives learning to do this. Some succeed and some never have a clue. I'm trying. Love my fellow man. Don't react and don't always have to be right. This is one I'll have to work on for the rest of my life. Appreciate each day and recognize positive and negative as a part of life's experiences. Look around me and see life at it's best. The joys of living come as you strive to achieve your dreams. Its the quality of each day that is important, not the distant dream once achieved. Teach and nurture my children. You can never give them too much love. -Randa Jex 1/1/94

Tuesday, June 9. . . Romantic May and June Tunes

CELEBRATE!!! May 31 we made our toasts, our promises, and broke out the top layer of the wedding cake to honor our first year anniversary. Who knew our first year of marriage would be so action packed. New house, new jobs (new business), new emotions...but the constant, dependable, unconditional love saw us through it all. And here we year married and crazy as the day we met! To sum up marriage...."What Fun!" (I am stealing Lisa Horak's phrase). Zach was surprised with a 4 page addition to the 7 year-running scrapbook and a framed wedding picture for his office...and me...a beautiful China Cabinet!

June is here! And so are the mosquitoes :( It's getting to be that time of year when the evening dog walks aren't as enjoyable because all though the sun is setting, the temperature is not dropping and you are lucky to make it home before your wiener dog is carried away by gigantic mosquitoes. We did manage to snap a few great shots of the pups playing by the river.

We just made it back from Oxford to see the Rebels in the Super Regionals! It was our first trip back since we moved to Natchez and it feels like the drive now takes forever but so worth it. What an amazing city! Every time we go to Oxford there are a million new places to eat, drink, shop, live, etc. I have never seen such an awesome variety of pizza, sushi, and Mexican joints in a 10 mile radius...where were they when we were in college?! I told Zach if we have daughters that go to Ole Miss we can't blame them if they acquire shopping addictions...Oxford is crawling with the cutest boutiques!

Zach bought a new baby...a beautiful Blueridge guitar with pearl inlays. It is stunning and sounds great! He has been playing up a storm. His brother Kellen came over the other night and I swear I thought Dave Matthews Band was in my living room. They are amazing. I taught myself how to sew and I just completed our dining room drapes. Stay tuned as we are about to start painting and I will post before and after shots of the dining room soon! Off to Fat Mama' is the 20th anniversary and a great excuse for Tamales and Margaritas! Adios!
