The Fireguy has retired...

This is it... The day we all look forward to; RETIREMENT!!

My Fireguy has been in the fire service for 20+ years and has made the decision to retire.
He has plenty of hobbies to keep him busy; fishing, hunting and rafting to name a few...

We hired an amazing young woman, Carrie @ Sheps Photography to take some shots to commemorate his career. I love the shots she took and I'm sharing a few with you in the slideshow below...

Congratulations to you my love and I wish you all the happiness in your new freedom - ♥ ♥

Mommytography 365 - Must See!!!

I am participating in the "Mommytography 365" project -

This week our assignment was a Scavenger Hunt with our camera's and I wanted to share my submission!!

I hope you enjoy my slide show

Favorite Things - May

Oh my goodness!
Can you believe it is nearing the end of another month!!
I am posting this a little early, since I tend to forget (wink wink)

Knocking live video is an iPhone app
that is like having a live mobile phone web cam.
See what I see, LIVE anywhere!!!
The ONLY thing missing with this app is sound...
but I'm sure Apple is working on it ~

Flip videocam...
is an easy to use, pocket-sized HD camcorder.
Our purchase came with the Flip Videocam,
rechargeable AA battery pack
(recharges when connected to USB);
HDMI cable (you connect to your HDTV & watch your videos)
and a carry case! A power adapter is sold separately.
The camcorder also functions with two standard AA batteries.
A convenient flip-out USB arm plugs
directly into your PC or Mac
to launch pre-loaded FlipShare™ software.
The software makes it easy to email videos,
edit individual clips, make custom movies,
capture still-image snapshots,
and upload video to Facebook, MySpace,
YouTube and other sharing sites.


♥ ♥ ♥ them!

It hasn't been warm enough just yet for full bloom

but they're coming!!!

I have two huge bushes lining my walkway to the front door

and I just adore the welcoming scent ~


Another fragrant favorite of mine ~

These little babies are popping out everywhere are here!!

Many folks use them as ground cover and

they make a lovely trellis also!!

For Mom...

To celebrate birthdays
is without a doubt a wonderful thing,
but what do you do
when the person is not there to celebrate with?
My Mom Shyrl at age 2

A Mother Like You

In my home there is a photo
of a face more precious than gold ~
And to those who love and lost you
your memory will never grow old.

Today I look at your photo
at your face so loving and true ~
No wonder my heart is breaking Mom
losing a mother like you...

But each day you walk beside me
and when my life is through
I pray that God will take my hand
and lead me straight to you...

Today I celebrate the day you blessed this World with your arrival Mom
I love and miss you

Happy 3rd Anniversary

Happy Anniversary to Erin & Chris
Best wishes to our beautiful daughter
and her handsome Prince Charming!!
Dad & I have enjoyed watching your union
grow stronger each year -
We have seen the love in your eyes
as you support each other
not only through lifes daily challenges
but as you challenge yourselves both physically & mentally.
Again, congratulations and we look forward
to many more happy years for you!!
