Throwback Thursday : Cousins #tbt

I may have shared this photo on the blog before, but it is one of my favorites, so here it is again! This is the perfect Throwback Thursday photo of my cousin and I! I’m fairly certain we were wearing our Gramma and Grampa’s coats, hats, earmuffs and gloves and just being plain silly. I […]

Dad and The Giant Dinosaur :: Throw Back Thursday #tbt

I have wanted to participate in Throwback Thursday for a while now, but I always forget! Not today! I dug out some old photos and hope to remember to share one, if not weekly, then at least once a month.  I adore this photo of my Dad and I with the giant green dinosaur statue […]

Wordless Wednesday – Winter Landscape #ww

The cold and snow can be truly beautiful. This was on the way home from picking my daughter up from drama club practice last night. The snowy landscape and setting sun reminded me to look for the beauty in things, even when I feel like I am too tired to care. I have hope for […]

First Two Weeks of February #fmsphotoaday

I may have failed miserably with keeping up with the photo a day Instagram meme in January, but I’ve been good about remembering in February! I’ve only missed two days so far and I am really enjoying sharing my daily photos. So much so that I think I’ll do a biweekly recap of what I’ve […]

Twenty Years Ago – A Look Back

While searching for some photos to add to a new collage frame the other day, I ran across this old photo. Calling it “old” is strange — I call photos old when I refer to my Grandparents, or my cousins and I when were little kids. This photo though, is a photo that just doesn’t […]

Wordless Wednesday – Blue Sky Blue Jay #ww

Note: D’oh! I just realized that today is Tuesday — not Wednesday! Oh dear, I need more coffee! Oh well, I’m leaving the post up =) Happy Tuesday all! The Blue Jays have been having a grand time at our bird feeder this week! With the cold temps, we’ve tried to keep it full for […]

Excuse me while I obsess over building a computer and frozen water pipes

You may or may not have noticed that I have been mostly absent from the blog since well before the holiday season. What started out as a short hiatus from the blog, to enjoy spending time with the kids and family over break, ended up turning into an “I’ll just take one more day off, […]

Wordless Wednesday – Baby’s Baby #ww

Christmas might be long over, but I had to share these two photos of our granddaughter opening her big baby doll! She just loved her first doll from Gramma and Grampa! It was so sweet when she gave her baby a big hug and smooch after freeing her from the wrapping paper! I hope you […]

{almost} Wordless Wednesday – Christmas Chorus Concert #ww

We attended our daughter’s Christmas Chorus concert last night. It was such a lovely hour and a half of music with all of the students in middle through high school singing holiday favorites. We ended up having to sit way way up at the top of the auditorium, so I wasn’t able to get good […]
