Weekly Photo Challenge: Beginning

We went to Arizona last week to welcome in the New Year with my big brother and sister-in-law.

It was a week full of relaxation, and some really great food!

The highlight of the week being this delicious “chicken stuffed turkey” that my brother cooked on the barbecue!

This could very well be the beginning of a new tradition in our family!

Great company…delicious food…lots of sleep…even more chocolate…did I mention sleep?  Very quiet, comfortable, casual, and nice.

A perfect way to end one year, and start the next.

Yep…it was a great beginning to the New Year!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Good Morning!

It might be a common start, but as far as I’m concerned its one of the best ways to start the morning.

My day starts with a cup of coffee brought to me by my amazing husband!

If I haven’t made my way out of bed yet, he’ll bring it to my night stand, and wave his hand over the cup so that I can smell the wonderful aroma of the fresh cup of coffee.

And yes, it’s delightful.

Most mornings, I’ve already made it to the shower, and it’s waiting for me when I step out. Ahhh…I love that moment when I smell the coffee as I’m standing in the shower.

It certainly is a great way to start my day, and it plays a role in helping to make my morning a “good morning“!

Thankful Thursday: 3 gifts musical

3 gifts musical…

1. The deep belly laugh of a child…especially when it’s from one of my grandchildren. Sweet music to my ears.

2. The sound of my coffee maker as it makes me a cup of coffee.  Ahhh… I love that sound! A lot like music to me.

3. The ability to listen to a variety of music through a pretty cool program called Pandora.

These are just a few of the many things that I am so very thankful for today.

Weekly photo challenge: a day in my life

A day in my life is usually very quiet.

But on Saturday, I had the joy of spending it with my husband, my grandson, my daughter and son-in-law.

Because we don’t live close to them, I treasure the moments that we spend together.  The little guy is simply amazing!  Full of laughs, and hugs and eager to explore the world around him!  His mom and dad are pretty cool too!  And of course, his Grandpa is just the best!

So, come join me on this day! It starts off bright and early with one happy little guy! 🙂

I’m so thankful for each of these people in my life, and that we were able to share this beautiful day together!

Thank you for spending my day with me!
