Colorado Valley

Visited friends in Colorado last week and had a grand time. This girls trip was planned around being outdoors and all I can say is wow! The weather was perfect- not too hot and not to cold. Lots of walks and hikes taking in all nature could provide. It could not have been more glorious. […]

Cute Times Four

Blogging has not come easy the last few months. To complicate matters I have also been gone the last few weeks. I am hoping to focus more on blogging this fall and that means I must get out and take photos. I am challenging myself to keep my camera handy and to find the fall beauty […]

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 […]

Girls Last Taste Of Summer

Finally got in that special summer lake weekend only it was in October! My friend and I headed for her sister’s house a few weeks ago for a few days of lake fun! We had three days of shopping, eating, boating and swimming on the lake. What a perfect time we had. We all should get […]

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. […]

Girl’s Spring Break Weekend

A few girl friends and I decided at the last minute to take a short trip since none of us was going anywhere for spring break. Destination: several small towns and an outlet mall. We had a great time and found a few goodies, but the best part of trip was just driving around finding cute […]

Hope Floats

Hope Floats, but in this case maybe not always! I love anything that has the word “Hope” on it. A few years ago I traveled with a friend to Boston. We decided to do the Cape Cod thing and headed to a Bed and Breakfast in Chatham. What a beautiful area. We traveled there in March so […]

Last Summer Fling

Just got back from a quick girl’s trip to celebrate the last of summer. I love the water and love summer. One of the things I miss most in the winter is not being able to lay by a pool and swim. Took a few days to get in the last summer swim with friends and […]

Girl’s Road Trip

Yesterday I took a day road trip with a good friend. We drove to see a dear friend who lives in a small country town nearly two hours away. The town has 4,000 people with many beautiful old homes from the 1800s sprinkled here and there. It has a relaxed lazy feel, although I must say that […]

Girls Lake Trip

Nothing makes life better than a girl’s trip to the lake. We had lot’s of fun and were lucky that the weather actually provided us with two wonderful sunny days.  This was great way to start the summer season by spending a few days just boating and swimming all day with a little shopping on the side! Of course, the best part is enjoying time […]

Best Retro Texaco Gas Station Ever!

When traveling on our “Girl Trip” Sunday (see previous post) we found this darling antique retro gas station. It was absolutely the cutest gas station I have ever seen. It was an original filling station from the 50s. Someone had painstakingly restored it back to the 50s. It is a full service station and pristine. I […]

Flea Market Girl’s Trip

A college friend and I traveled for a day trip to see a special friend who has recently moved about two hours away. We had the most fun ever! It was wonderful to laugh, tell old stories and spend time together. By the end of the day we had literally laughed all day long. We even chuckled when we […]

Mississippi Porch

I love front porches and the chairs/rockers that they display. I especially love when beautiful colors have been used whether it be the wooden floors, shutters or the chairs/rockers. When on a girl’s trip, a few years ago, I took a quick photo of this house which had been converted into a restaurant. We had made reservations to dine […]

Unusual Bed & Breakfast

 Went with girlfriends for a holiday shopping weekend. We stayed at a really fun Bed & Breakfast that was composed of old cabins from the past. Many are quite rustic, but very cute. Nothing better than shopping with friends! I did not buy very much, but just seeing all the holiday decorations put me in […]
