“Oh, I know Grandma will really like this one….”

This Grandma is well-loved!

This Grandma not only has six grandkids, but they all happen to be little granddaughters!

This Grandma has a birthday coming up and a big photo of all “her girls” will be the perfect gift!

Daryl and Misty

“He’s my man and I love him so!

Why?!! For many reasons actually…

He’s always up for anything, takes life in stride, and he plans wonderful weekend getaways… to name just a few!

Yup, and he says one of my best traits is my love for life! Oh, and he loves my smile and the way I love him so!

We can’t help it…we love to steal kisses whenever possible, snuggling is wonderful, and being silly and a little crazy too! It is just who we are! A great Saturday night for us is dinner, a movie and maybe a long, leisurely walk!

I can’t believe it, but we are ready to celebrate our two year anniversary! Me and my man…”

and my personal fave…thanks Misty!

Daryl and Misty have a wonderful scrapbooking store with all the scrapbooking goodies you could dream of and more! For more info send Misty an email at

A Rainy Day!

Filed under: Just Because — Char @ 5:15 am

I don’t know about you, but I love rainy days!

For several reasons….

A rainy morning seems to give me permission to sit down and have a good, hot cup of coffee!

The rain makes the grass, flowers, and yeah…weeds, burst forth with a brand new vibrance!

A light rain on a warm day always beckons me to throw on my running shoes and go for a jog in the damp outdoors!

And of course, a rainy summer day gives a good reason to get a little wet and muddy!

We Three…

Filed under: Kiddos — Char @ 3:54 am

Ara is the big sister! She has got the very best sense of fashion! Yes, she can tell you in a second if your outfit is cool or if it is just totally uncool!

Talon is a barefoot in the mud, running through the water puddles, you know…..just all boy! He has got a passion for trains! Thomas the Tank Engine to be exact! In fact he has a few well worn Thomas train t-shirts and that is all that is necessary for his wardrobe! Really, why would you want to wear anything else?!!

He has got the sandy blond hair and big blue eyes!

And Maya is the princess! This princess is playful and goofy with an impish sparkle in her eyes. Oh, and just in case you were not aware……”Hannah Montana” is the greatest!

We know these three kiddos quite well! My little guys have spent quite a bit of time with them! Trips to the library, racing around at the park, summer days at the pool, shared lollipops and chicken nuggets….just doing what little friends do!

It took place at the Box Hill Mansion at the Regents Glen Country Club!

It was a very elegant wedding indeed!

I had the privilege of assisting Rick from Titus Touch Photography in this gorgeous wedding!

Parting shots…..dusk settling over all the festivities!

Wishing Carl and Melissa many happy years together!

Mildly sweet with a bit of a tang!

Blueberries are nutritional stars bursting with nutrition and flavor! And I am told they are an antioxidant powerhouse coming out on top for their antioxidant capabilities!!!

What exactly are antioxidants, anyway?!!

Anyway, summer means lots of fresh fruit and we love these little berries!

A whole weekend just for the girls filled with shopping, lingering over meals, good talks, and lots of laughter! I was told it is a yearly tradition! I spent only a hour with them, but let me tell ya…….it was clear these ladies were anticipating a good time!

And the one little fellow that got thrown into the mix!!!
