Happy National Best Friends Day

Today, June 8th, is National Best Friends Day! As Sew4Home described it over on her blog--- Your best friend: the person you turn to at your highest and lowest points. The one who's always there with advice, empathy and unconditional love. That special someone you want by your side for all your greatest adventures: such as seeing how many mini cupcakes you can consume in one sitting. It seems only fitting to show a couple of pictures from last weekend's outing to Canton with one of my very best friends, Valine! We joined her aunt Pam on Friday night and after a wonderful Mexican dinner, they took us on a short tour of Kilgore and nearby small towns. My dad was in the oil/gas business, so I knew that Kilgore was a "hopping place" once upon a time, but it was nice to see that is has maintained it's small-town charm with a quaint downtown area. Did you know that Kilgore is the home of the "Million Dollar Acre"? Here we are visiting the memorial site.

We spent Saturday at Canton once again and had such a great time together. It was hot!!! VERY hot, but lots of water and miles of vintage goodness kept us somewhat distracted from the triple digit heat.

These guys were lucky enough to find a cool spot in one of the pavillions---but they looked like they'd been sitting there for a LONG time!

The variety of offerings was great, of course---flying pigs . . .

. . . to flower-filled washtubs.

You can't get much better than Canton. (especially if you're with your best friend)

On the drive home, my bestie patiently waited while I pulled over on the side of the road to capture the Black-Eyed Susans that were springing up everywhere.
