Colorado Mountain View

Visited Colorado a couple of weeks ago. This view was on a mountain drive from Colorado Springs along the mountain range. What a calming and spectacular afternoon drive. Fall was everywhere. The leaves were beautiful. There was a dusting of snow and as we drove higher into the mountains the ponds were even frozen! I cannot […]

We traveled to see our “Momo” every summer and those times are filled with very happy memories. She was a wonderful grandmother and our times were treasured when visiting New Mexico. New Mexico holds […]

Food For My Soul

I spent the last year putting most of my energy into recovering from my barn accident last April. I am finally doing really well. Some days I still have a limp, but I am trying hard to walk without one. I am not totally “there” yet, but I think each month is bringing me to my desired goal. […]

Harry Potter Hogwarts Hall

I read the first Harry Potter book, although the rest are on my list to read. When I was in London/Oxford last fall we spent one entire day visiting Oxford University which was one of the highlights of our trip. Scenes from the Harry Potter movies were filmed on the Oxford campus at the Christ Church College. This is my photo […]

Seaside Rooftops

It has been a miserable & dreary January here. No sun equals “no good” for me. Went back and found a few feel good pictures from a few years ago. I love beach house architecture. The colors alone would make anyone happy because they are so bright and cheery. Seaside and other Florida areas use such beautiful […]

Around Hollywood

Loved staying in Hollywood. Although we visited many other areas (in such a short time) we loved the look and feel of Hollywood. Very alternative and definitely a area rich with movie history. Walking down Hollywood Blvd. just made you smile and the search for the stars was so much fun. Much to see and […]
