at first glance...

it looks like "eagleston"...don't you think?

At least that's what John and I thought as we drove through this little old, rundown town on our way to the Boston 1st ward. I remember looking up and seeing "Egleston Nail Salon", and having a good chuckle. Then we saw the "Egleston Physical Therapy", and the "Egleston Licoreria", and both started laughing pretty hard. We decided that on our way home, we'd take pictures of these family owned business...just for fun. However, what we didn't realize at first glance...was that there were "Egleston" shops on every corner of every block. So many, in fact, that my camera shutter had a hard time keeping up with them all.

Just something kind of silly...but totally made us laugh.

Wow! There really could be a connection, you know. Especially since you know John's family was once "Eggleston". It wouldn't be a stretch at all to consider that some branch of the family might have dropped a "g", while another branch changed a "g" to an "a"...

That is so funny, especially because I love calling you guys the eglestons. It makes me laugh.

Nicole- What an amazing trip! I loved every one of your posts and pictures. Looks like you had a wonderful time. What fun memories! You are a great photographer, writer, MOM, WIFE... etc.. etc...etc...the list is ongoing =) I was talking to someone the other day about you... and before I ever opened my mouth (ok- all I had to do was say your name)... and they went on and on and on about how incredibly talented you are!!! I just smiled and agreed... and again realized how lucky I am to have you as a dear friend! I will continually say... what an example you are to me!
