New Beginnings

The holiday weekend is flying by! And for the first time Jeff and I actually went somewhere for the long weekend! We have been enjoying some gorgeous landscapes in the Washington Peninsula. I absolutely LOVE going places I have never been! We have also returned to some stunning locations we visited about 15 years ago and fell in love with. I hope you had a chance to enjoy the holiday weekend!     I absolutely fell in love with this lodge! Build in 1927 Lake Quinault Lodge oozes American history. It take you back to America's glory days when things [...]

Four – Books – Pale – Skin

Summer is racing by! I'm thrilled that tomorrow my niece will be getting married! I'm so excited to share in this long awaited day! I'm sure she will be a stunning bride! But sadly, I will also be saying goodbye to my son who only stopped by for two days to transition from living at summer camp to living back at WW as soccer training begins on Sunday.  :cry: This summer has just been about racing from one place to the other it seems...

What I’m Reading/Down the Street

What I'm Reading Happily I am always reading something!There are brief periods of time when I have finished a fantastic book and I'm just not ready to let go of it so I don't jump right into the next...But I always have a stack of books near by that are waiting for their turn to be read....I promised myself a year ago that I wouldn't buy any new books (except book club choices) until I had read more on my shelf...Which I did for awhile...but then I find myself at Powell's and good grief who can walk out of Powell's [...]



Sweet 124/365 Hi, thanks for stopping by for this special Thursday issue of my blog :) {Sweet} - I have a HUGE {sweet} tooth! It is an essential part of my day... There are some {sweet} things I don't care for and honey is one of them... (unless it's in tea) But the bear was cute and honey, for all its nasty stickiness, is pretty so I took the picture :) Little 125/365 When you think about it a prompt like {little} could be anything... But sometimes the fact that it could be anything makes it more difficult what to [...]



Letters 98/365 Happy Friday! I feel a bit like I have "survived" this week! It has been exciting and it isn't over yet! This afternoon I have a wedding to shoot and then I shall breathe a big deep sign of relief...

This is a super cool book from my favorite President, Theodore Roosevelt.  It is a compilation of {letters} he wrote to his children... [...]


What I’m Reading/Street

What I'm Reading 52/365 Lately I have enjoyed challenging myself with the books {I'm reading}... I am purposefully choosing books that I have either wanted to read for years or have languished on my bookshelf for years... I have been nicely surprised by {what I'm reading}... I love books - they are one of my all time favorite things! And I'm picky - I need a book in my hand...not an electronic gadget - I love books...When I finish one book I'm excited about the next book - sometimes I feel guilty for not cherishing the just finished book...I had [...]

Light/Looking Down

Light 20/365 I love to read a good book... I love to read a good book especially if I have been to some of the locations in the book... I loved Saint Malo... It was my favorite French town by the sea... I knew nothing about it when we arrived but I fell in love and determined I would one day return...
