Cruise bound – 11 years ago today.

Fred and I – 3/11/07

11 years ago today… ELEVEN! Where has the time gone? I remember it like it was yesterday. My parents came to visit from Michigan, and we went on a cruise on Norwegian Cruise Lines out of Charleston, SC – we had so much fun. We ate well, and they had Cooking Light (smarter options) available at each meal. Everything was fabulous!  Continue reading “Cruise bound – 11 years ago today.”


Appreciate the Gray Days!

Monhegan, Maine

As I write this (and schedule it to publish) – it’s a cloudy and gray day in Charleston (which I tend to love) – So I thought I would peruse my photos from our last visit to Maine – and pull up an equally gray day. Although there are so many interesting and bright colors that pop – a gray day is still beautiful! Last year we had many foggy days which kept the temps cooler which we were happy about (especially since when we left Charleston it was very steamy).

You can barely see Manana Island  but if you look you will see it. Thick fog. One minute you can see clearly and *POOF* the next minute everything is gone. Too cool!

Enjoy the gray days, it makes you appreciate the sunshine that much more! Time is passing so quickly… tomorrow is March 1! Can you believe it?


Catch you back here tomorrow!

Susan’s Flowers – Monhegan

Monhegan, Maine

I like to refer to this little stretch as “Susan’s Flowers”. Aren’t they just beautiful? This is one of my favorite places to walk past – although I don’t get very far because the flowers inevitably stop me in my tracks! Snap, snap, snap – many photos of her hard work!

A Burst of Happiness!

Monhegan Flower

Isn’t this flower just a beautiful burst of sunshine? It exudes happiness from every single petal! Isn’t nature a miracle – the beautiful sizes and shapes of different plants – the strong and the subtle colors that make them so gorgeous! Continue reading “A Burst of Happiness!”

From the Archives: Sunset in Maine

A photo from the archives – Maine

Every year I tell myself I need to clean out my almost 9,000 images, I start out doing it, then I get busy and forget about it. The following year I need to clean out almost 10,000 images (and this is after cleaning out during the year) – well… now I’m past 11,000 +++ and I need to get control. So as I start to look back at old photos (but not yet clean out) I’ll share a one from the archives… Continue reading “From the Archives: Sunset in Maine”
