Giving Thanks

I’m thankful for a lot of things in my life, even the bad things. The bad things made me a better person and appreciate the good things even more. I must have done something right, because the universe rewarded me. These people make me believe there is good in the world and to “Be the Good”!… Continue reading Giving Thanks


The Trees Have EYES!

“When in Rome, do as the Romans do!” “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” In Colorado… We spent Labor Day weekend traveling around Colorado. The mountains were calling!

I remember finding treasures that he wrote to mom or my grandparents and thinking, “WOW, my dad wrote that?” Just having him say, “Sit down, we need to talk,” was enough to bring tears to my eyes, it still is! He knew just… Continue reading Like a Rock

I took a blogging break this fall. I focused on family, literally! This is my youngest son’s senior year in high school and I was the self appointed football team photographer.

♫Do you want to build a Snowman?♪

My nieces LOVE the movie Frozen! A friend posted a picture on Facebook of her 3 year old wearing the cutest “Elsa”crochet hat with a braid on the side. Of course I had to find out where she got it so that I could get some for the “little blondies”! I ended up ordering two… Continue reading ♫Do you want to build a Snowman?♪
