5 Things – Sedona, AZ
I’ve had a love affair with Sedona for many years. Seriously, I think it’s been almost 15 years now. With all of that love and history, where do I begin? [Can you hear me humming?]
Here are my “5 Things” about Sedona.
There is something about Sedona and the Red Rock area that puts me at peace. I’m not sure what... [Read more of this post...]
Red, White, and the Bluest Sky Ever
The challenge over at Beth’s this week was “Independence Day” (or food) and I’m so glad that she didn’t say “the 4th”!
See, Husband and I were truly experiencing independence this Independence Day. Little Man and BK are spending a few weeks at their Gram’s house and we found ourselves on our own for the... [Read more of this post...]
It’s About Time
The You Capture challenge this week was “photographer’s choice” … wide open. Oh my word.
I spent a bunch of time thinking about this one night when I couldn’t sleep and then, through the miracle of RSS, I got inspired!
A couple of weeks ago, Stephen the Novel Doctor posted a writing contest and Robin tweeted that she’d... [Read more of this post...]
My Big Fat International Dinner Party
Summer seems to bring out the “social” in us all. It’s the backyard barbecues, the pool parties, the tiki torches … it’s the laid back, take it easy reason to have a party season.
So, when we got an invitation recently to get together with a group of other couples for a planned “dinner event” that required participation,... [Read more of this post...]
The Picture of Summer
Ahhh … summer is here and has found its way into the You Capture carnival! This week we were all challenged to capture the season of sun and fun.
Summer in our neck of the woods is hot. There are no two ways about it. It’s our least favorite season. It’s just too stinkin’ hot to do much of anything outside.
For the computer nerds... [Read more of this post...]
A Father is Born
I’ve been looking at this blank page for more than a few minutes trying to decide just which words to use. Trying to craft just the right message to covey just how cool it is to watch the birth of a father. I’m struggling. I want to get this right.
When Husband and I decided to get married, there was never any doubt that we would have children.... [Read more of this post...]
Emotions in Motion
This time of year produces a rollercoaster of emotions for me. If I didn’t know better – if I didn’t know the root cause [CRAZY work schedule] – I would probably be a great candidate for therapy. [LOL ... please know that I'm not claiming sanity here. I might be a good candidate anyway!] So, when the You Capture challenge for... [Read more of this post...]
I Capture, You Capture
I’ve been meaning to participate in the You Capture challenges/carnival Beth’s got going over at I Should Be Folding Laundry for a while now. I mean well. I just never have managed to do it! [My self-talk is now taunting me thank-you-very-much.]
This week the challenge was “nature” and I was mulling it around and around for much... [Read more of this post...]
Have you ever had one of those days that was so good it made you smug? You know. The kind of day that seems to have been conjured out of a scene from a great historical romance novel [not that I read those] or from a Lifetime Original Movie [not that I watch those] or from someone else’s life.
Let me see if I can paint you a picture. Close... [Read more of this post...]
Jesus Fell On My Toe (and Other Easter Blessings)
Our little family had a wonderful Easter. We were able to spend time doing all sorts of things … bike rides, visiting, play in the park, and of course, hunting for treats.
One of my most favorite things about Easter this year was that, after a couple of years of searching, I think we’ve found the right church for us! It’s fitting that... [Read more of this post...]
