Hello, it’s me…

From L to R: Dad (Joe), me, Mom (Sheila), Sister (Bridget) and Fred – photo from a few years ago while in MI!

Hello, y’all! Well, I’m happy to inform you that you’ve made it through the middle of the week, hang in there, Friday is on the horizon! I’m sure many of you are familiar with Adele’s (the singer) hit song, “Hello”. When I saw this image, that’s what came to mind. I’m also thinking about changing my voicemail message to: “Hello, it’s me!”, hehe, kidding…

Afternoon Violet Reflections

Afternoon Violet Reflections

I was walking through our back room late in the afternoon. I saw the violets on a little table near the sun, happy as can be – I noticed the shadow of one of them against the wall. It was dark and vibrant. This photo was taken a few moments later. Much lighter, but I think it has more depth to it.

Whether it be their children, friends or relatives…

Charlie Searching The Palm Tree…

Charlie and the Palm!

We have a palm tree in our backyard that popped up on its own. You see them all over the Lowcountry. I love the tropical flair they bring to the yard. They start just as a tropical growth, palmy looking more like a plant. They grow quickly, provide shade and the most wonderful relaxing sounds when there is the slightest wind. #itmakestheyardanoasis

Chicken Coop In The “Hood”…

Happy Chickens – Charleston, SC

Cool chicken coop. Cool chickens. A beautiful chicken walked by and I didn’t get to my phone in time. So no photo… This was on a morning walk. I love running across the unexpected. In Charleston you can EXPECT to run across the unexpected, usually in the most unique way possible.
