Thankful Thursday

So, it’s been a sweet week. Last Friday morning started with dropping Tanner and his friend off at his ‘Young Life’ ‘Brojangles’ breakfast at 7 a.m.  It’s not always easy rushing out the door that early, but there are definite perks. Like this view… At school, for our last Friday before the 3 week break (YAHOO!!!), I had coffee and emergency chocolate on hand. It came in handy. Full day. Oh, and Hope must’ve known that it’d be super fullRead more

The Changing Seasons Photo Challenge ~ May 2015

I love this photo prompt…changing seasons, posting photos from the previous month.  Last May was a busy month for us.  It included lots of high school baseball games in my son’s last season, my son’s graduation from college,  a trip to New Smyrna Beach, Florida with my newly-graduated son to see my parents, and my son’s last high school prom.  Talk about changing seasons!  These photos represent some endings that will only lead to new beginnings.  Thankful for that.  Read more

Weekly Photo Challenge ~ ‘Fresh’

Love the visuals that Spring gives us that new beginnings are possible and can come from anywhere. We just have to look for them… and be willing to let go of the old stuff that needs to fade into the distance. Sometimes the letting go of the old, and letting go ofRead more

Black and White Sunday ~ ‘Landscape’

Although the subject for the photo challenge is “landscape”, I know that the real subject of the photo is on the right. So, although the beautiful riverside path is front and center, it gives way to my son and his love of photography.  This photo is my view of his view of the landscape.  Same place, different view, different lens.  Kind of like life.  We might be in the same place, but our views, our focus, our lens…they provide aRead more
