ordinary days


This ordinary day . . . marks the anniversary of the heart. . . and just like that two years have passed.

and sometimes I wonder if it really happened.

Pretty place sunrise


a sunrise at the mountain’s peak

happy cheers school has started from students

a talk with the philosopher about all that’s good in Florida

healthy heart beating

smiles again



the littlest things

“Sometimes the littlest things take up the most room in your heart.”

and the angels got together and sent Little Rickie and his beautiful wife this little guy last week. 

and even though he’s not to sure about the rest of us. . . I think we are in love. 



a visit

finishing chores that weigh you down

safe travels

knowing you are right where you need to be

good friends sharing fun

She went back to school today  Thank you Jesus!  

 cooler days – even if it’s just a little

just hanging out

a makeup party  with my girls & my much loved makeup lady

study more . . . harder

Today is the day we travel. The day the philosopher starts work again towards that new life he has dreamed of . . . worked so hard for.  

Studying. . . studying . . . studying

and now 

He’ll study more. . . and work towards a Masters 

and Henry the giant puppy won’t be the only one to miss him.  This pup has claimed that one as his own. 

I keep finding my gift counting is lasy. 

and I haven’t shown you how the sun has washed away the color from my  hydrangea’s.  . .  I totally love what it’s done.  


a talk with the man who wears the white collar

a walk through the Mercy Door

the man with the big laugh who loving us so much

faded hydrangeas

morning breeze

and impromptu tea party with my girls

swimming alone in that great big pool

that fisherman of mine who works so hard

hands that can fix broken down cars

all of us in pews together

We are a week into August and I haven’t told you about the most important part of July yet.

the Philosopher made it official and finally popped the much waited for question to the girl with the brown eyes.

To no one’s surprise this girl said, “Yes!”  and I’ve never seen those brown eyes sparkle so bright.

and the girl who loves to dance said, “Finally! I have been waiting for her to be my sister for more than half my life.” and we all laughed because there was never a truer statement.



a Friday night dinner party that felt so good

a new friend for the girl who loves to dance

the ninja slippin in because he heard we had cake

coffee from Puerto Rico

rain! much needed rain

a new toy to photograph

morning light streaming in that kitchen window

a girl who I love safely home from France if only for a little while

friends reaching out

hugs from the girl who loves music Bestie

birthday presents to share

burst of laughter in the kitchen, around the table, in the living room, from all parts of the house.

good food to share

a successful garage sale for the girl who loves to dance . . . she did it all by herself.
