About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Trailblazers

   Sometimes I see myself like the Dad's girlfriend in "The Parent Trap".  I'm not hateful like her, but when it comes to nature (remember when they took her camping?!) I am one big weenie.  Today I decided to buck up and suggest a nature hike.  Hey, if I can bring my camera along I can do almost anything.  Off we went, and I am so glad we did...

   My two little trailblazers.  Mandy is always up for an adventure and trying new things.  Katie just wants to be with her big sister.:-)

  Look ladies!  Leaves are falling!  Get out your pumpkins and decorate!:-)

   I loved this lonely little red mushroom.


   After the hike, it felt so good to put our toes in the water!  Of course, some toes are cuter than others.  That's one reason why I am the family photographer.:-)

   We will all sleep well tonight.  Hope you are enjoying your holiday weekend, too.

Hi Lori!

I love the pics from your hike - I think we need to do that too. (If I can get everybody together - I'm dealing with teenagers here LOL - I'll even try and get some pics too!) Thanks for sharing =)

I loved your nature hike. It's great your girls enjoy being together and can enjoy family outings like this. Our leaves are not falling yet but the evenings are getting darker earlier and the early mornings are much cooler. Thanks for sharing your lovely photos.

I'm laughing about how you "bucked up" and went hiking! I'm so happy you stepped out of your element and went for it. I love hiking...Not crazy about camping but do love day hikes. There is so much beauty out there that people need to get out and get in to!
The photo's are fabulous!
Wish I was there.

What fun a hike! I love to camp and hike. Havent gotten to go not once this year. Sure hope to get to N. Ga when the leaves start changing and go for a hike then, I just love the fresh crisp air and the cruching of leaves. I havent started decorating yet but hope to soon. Your fall things look lovely.
Blessings, Karen

What a great day. Isn't it fun to do something out of your realm and really enjoy it. My two kids love nature hikes and I enjoy seeing the beauty of nature from their eyes. Cathy
