Simple Life Sunday -The end is merely the beginning.

When I first embarked on this journey I anticipated being at a certain place within a specific amount of time.  I realize now that was never a realistic expectation.  Things change, life happens, no amount of plotting & planning will make things go exactly as expected. My first book of 2017.  This book goes along…

The Changing Seasons – December

As 2016 comes to a close here is my last submission for The Changing Seasons photo challenge.  It has been a pleasure participating in this challenge.  It helped me get out & take more photos.  As for 2017, I am not sure what my blog has in store just yet.  I plan to spend the…

WPC – Retrospective

Retrospective is perfect for the Weekly Photo Challenge.  As I was editing my photos for this month’s Changing Season’s post, I was thinking it would be nice to do a post showcasing one photo from each month.  Then I check the photo challenge for this week and bam, perfect timing. At the beginning of 2016,…

Travel Thursday – Chicago, IL

How is it possible I have never posted about this trip to Chicago or really looked through all of the photos I took?  I guess I thought I would eventually get around to it, but I never expected it to be 3.5 years later. During my son’s spring break in 2013, we decided to venture…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Relax

I realize it will be several months before I am able to do this again, but this is the ultimate in relaxation for me.  Not pictured, a good book & a glass of wine.  

Simple Life Sunday – Our first year in the 100 acre woods

If you missed the last Simple Life Sunday post click here. Sounds like a title for a Winnie the Pooh story.  No bears here, but plenty of bees, now if only I could find that honey pot. This grand adventure happened quite by accident.  We had no intention of moving shortly after I left my…

Changing Seasons – November

After working my Nikon hard during October, my camera took a break during the month of November.  I took less than 50 photos with my camera the entire month!  Leaving me with very little variety to share for this month’s installment of November. However, I took more with my phone & shared those on Instagram….

WPC – It’s Not This Time of Year Without…

A notebook?  I know strange choice for the Weekly Photo Challenge.   We are really not into the holiday stuff, no tree, no shopping, no presents.  It’s not for me.  However, I do enjoy spending time with friends & family, that is the part I would keep about the holidays and discard the rest.   This…

Travel Thursday – Washington Township Park Avon, IN

As the Thanksgiving holiday is upon us in the US, I would like to share a local place for Travel Thursday.  Typically we are headed to Michigan to enjoy Turkey Day with Shane’s awesome family.  However, this year we have decided to stay local & enjoy the holiday in our cabin in the woods.  Just…

WPC – Magic

For those of us heading into winter, this may not seem so magical.  However, last year while hiking after a heavy snow, the forest had transformed into a magical place.  All of the branches were heavy with snow & bent in toward the trail.  Despite the cold, I could not help but stop & take…
