Happy October!

A little family life chapter closed yesterday. 
On to new beginnings for Mom.
You can sell the belongings, but you cannot sell the memories.

Almost October

The Summer of 2016 whizzed by. 
Seems like overnight the leaves turned golden,
the light dims earlier, 
the deer hides are darker,
 Earth has embraced Autumn.

Summer Is Flying By

I used to post on my blog daily.
Now, it's weeks before I write.
I think between Facebook, Instagram,
and life, my little blog gets
lost in the shuffle.
I've thought about stopping it all together, 
but I don't want to quit.
I hope somebody will stop by,
have a look, 
and feel better that they did.
The photos in this post are from July,
a month I will long remember.
Enjoy August, and thank you for stopping by!

Nice Bird

My heart is sad for France.

Lovely Tulip

If the earth laughs in flowers,
this one is the model.

And Now..., Today...

We have Summer!
I'm looking forward to the splendor of 
 long sunny days,
abundant bird songs,
 blue skies with puffy clouds,
fresh picked berries,
early morning sunrise,
fresh cut flowers,
Long motorcycle voyages,
But mostly....a short visit with
Sweet Harper,
and time spent in the ocean!
Happy Summer!

Seeing Purple

With the Easter holiday being so early this year,
I'm feeling like it will soon be Summer. 
And I'm seeing purple. 
Hope you had 
 a beautiful weekend.

Happy Spring!

As the Earth wakes up
I can't help but think of  hope 
and endless opportunities.

Happy 1st Birthday!

We had so much fun sharing Harper's 1st Birthday.
She's just adorable.
Go Harper!

Happy Spring in December!

I'm thinking this is rather appropriate for this mild December
that we are experiencing in New Jersey.

"Perhaps, after all, our best thoughts come after all
when we are alone. It is good to listen, not to voices,
 but to the wind blowing, to the brook running cool water over polished stones, 
to bees drowsy with the weight of pollen.
If we attend to the music of the earth, we reach serenity. 
And then, in some unexplained way, 
we share it with others."

I love the smell of pine.
I love the color red.
I love holly, and pepperberries.
I love the Winter sky.
I love a Sunrise in pink.
A Sunset in orange.
I love glitter and magic.
I love December.

Giving Thanks

It's only appropriate that my Birthday should fall so close to Thanksgiving.
I am full of gratitude for the many kind and loving people in my life. 
I was able to share my time with my family and dear friends that mean so much to me.
The sun shone brightly, there was a cool wind in the air, and a fat possum entertained us at dinner. 
Life is good.
Thanks for the Love.

Happy Birthday Tiff!

Today marks the day!
32 years ago (wow), 
we welcomed our own little
 "flower bud"
into our world.
She has grown to be strong, confident and funny.
She is genuine, intelligent and beautiful.
She is compassionate, well spoken, and hard working.
She is trustworthy, loving, and fun.
She is a wife with a beautiful new Daughter.
And, she loves tulips! 
Happy Birthday, sweet Tiffany Lynn.
With our love and hugs.
Mom and Dad

Swan Family

That sweet family of 7 swans
that I talked about 
in early Spring,
has dwindled down to this.
A mere family of 3.
I guess the snapping turtle is very satisfied.
Life on a pond.

Jersey Shore

Back in early September, 
we vacationed in Lavalette. 
We enjoyed the sunshine, 
the ocean, 
our children, 
and our sweet Grand baby;  
Harper Rose. 
We had a splendid time. 
How time flies. 
It was a month ago already. 
Looking forward to being together again.

Happy Anniversary Friday!

Some people wonder why my little sister and me
share the last name.
Well, as luck would have it,
these 2 fell in love long, long, ago.
Sisters married to brothers!
Sounds a bit scary at first, 
but, it's all ok!
Happy Anniversary, Nance and Brad!
Many more to come...
(Photo taken last weekend at their daughter's baby shower.)
Love in the air!
