For 45 years I was blessed to have my Memere in my life. Not a moment goes by since her passing last week that I am not grateful for this. Though our worlds went in very separate directions as I grew to adulthood, our lives will forever be intrinsically connected if, for no other reason than, […]
This year we have both monkeys playing baseball – which means we’ll be getting tons of field time – and I’ll be getting tons of photos!! Here are some from week #1′s games: Hunter is playing AA ball this year. I’m not sure I can get over how very grown-up he looks already!! Westly is […]
Here are a few photos snapped with my iPhone this week: Tried a new Japanese place near work for some tasty veggie sushi!! Blush Raw Bar – I’ll definitely be going back for more (I love the mint on the top of the roll)!! We got some rain (finally) this week, so this bulldog showed […]
Seriously, I LOVE Disney….not as much as I love the two handsome guys above, but, truly, I LOVE it A LOT!!! (and I might add, that I don’t even pretend to understand those who don’t…I mean what’s wrong with having some fun with our imaginations – we ALL can use that!) So, during this past […]
Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!! I hope everyone will be able to spend some time with loved ones today….family….friends…both. Pops and I don’t usually do anything big on Valentine’s Day – just being together exchanging cards (often homemade) is special enough for us – plus I’m kinda that person who doesn’t really “love” to go out […]
Here’s to wishing everyone a very Happy Friday and a joyous weekend. I’m sharing this “Friday” photo to join in on Kim Klassen’s Friday Finds. If you aren’t familiar with Kim Klassen and love taking photographs, then visiting her site will be an amazing treat for you!! Her vision is simply beautiful and her ability […]
AND a very BIG Welcome to Springtime! Much Love, Peace and Happiness to you All,
Wishing everyone the joys of the season!! Needless to say, our Christmas cards went out a bit late this year, but here they are in a digital format. Season’s Greetings! Another year of memories encompassing all emotions has passed. This year, our lives have felt the losses of dear loved ones and known the joys […]
In case you’ve missed my Facebook obsession with using PicMonkey to create spooky Halloween photos, I thought I’d share them here. I seriously could spend all day creating these – well, if I had all day. But, you don’t need all day because you can create them quickly too! Even Bubba got in on the […]
Ready for some fabulous party photos?? Well, not to say my photos are fabulous, but what I was photographing certainly was! I hope you can see what I mean from these shots. (I’m trying to shoot only in manual mode lately, so, please, be kind.) Our friends Mickie and Gibson certainly know how to throw […]
We had a fabulous day taking the Roaring Camp Railroad train to the Santa Cruz Beach and Boardwalk and back. If you’re in the area, I absolutely recommend doing this!
Were you wondering what happened to my Friday Fabulous Five? Well, this week, my fabulous nephew Ty was in town for a quick visit, so, instead of posting I was enjoying 5 of my Favorite Fabulous guys!! Each one of these cutie pies brings so much love, joy and happiness to my heart there are […]
Best part of visiting Hakone Gardens in Saratoga…visiting with Mom! Happy Wednesday,
The incredible women over at Live and Love Out Loud, Bumbles&Light and Project Alicia have been putting on a weekly photo challenge this Spring called “Leap Into Spring”. If you’ve missed any of it, pop on over to their sites to see all the amazing photos that have been submitted. I haven’t been prepared enough […]
See the beautiful bride above? That’s my Aunt Ellen (she’s also my Godmother). This past weekend, her daughter Amanda (my cousin) got married in a gorgeous ceremony in North Carolina. I wasn’t able to attend the wedding, but was so grateful for Facebook and the ability to follow the day’s events through photographs posted there. […]
Enjoy the beauty all around today,
Picture the scene - a school gymnasium…. a first dance (and auction for the parents)… and a 3-year old who’s not afraid to strut his stuff (even though his older brother is the one who actualy goes to the school) You have…. WESTLY – THE DANCE MACHINE!!! He’s not afraid to show you how it’s done […]
AND for the BUBBA lovers: Many Blessings to you and your’s this holiday season and hopes for lots of joy in the New Year!
Sorry, I’ve been a bit MIA lately. It’s been a bit hectic around here so far this month and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. Gotta love the holidays! Last weekend my good friend Nia celebrated her 50th birthday. She celebrated this amazing milestone as only Nia could…with a lot of fun and with […]
I’m hoping everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving! Truthfully, I’m still enjoying my Tofurky-Day time off as my mom is here visiting for a couple more days. Just to be sure you didn’t think I wasn’t posting because of some food coma injury, I thought I’d check in and post PROOF that the holidays have really […]
This face makes any decorating at all….worth it! BOO!
Ok, so one word….YUM!
