Up, up and away!

Ava had her first experience watching hot air balloons Thursday night, and she loved them!

Rainbows and Road Trips

I wish I had some sewing to show you, but I don't. One of these days I'll get back to it. I do have a rainbow to share with you though. We had a pretty strong storm the other day and then the sun popped out and this was the result. The rainbow went clear across the sky but I could only get half of if in one photo.

Last week my mom, dad, Emily, Ava and I went to Georgia to visit my niece. We hadn't seen her in over five years since she moved down there, so I made reservations to fly down. Now mom had never flown and she was totally against it at the beginning. But by the time we were ready to go, she was too and she actually loved flying. 

This is the Hartwell Dam at the south end of Lake Hartwell. It's a huge dam...the biggest I've ever seen in person.

And here are the five of niece Kate, mom, me, Ava and Emily. Grandpa was taking the picture. We had such a nice visit and can't wait to go back again. :0)

Our week at the beach

Emily, Ava and I headed to the beach a few weeks ago. We had wonderful weather and we all had a great time. We're already looking forward to the next time we can get down there.

The one place we visited besides the beach was the Mote Aquarium. Of course all the sea creatures were very cool,but they also had a display to bring awareness to all the sea debris that is in our oceans and waterways. All the sculptures were made debris that had been washed ashore. To learn more and to see more sculptures you can visit Washed Ashore.

When a dream dies

We've all been there...chasing after something we really wanted. Then in the end, there was just no way it could happen. That was me last week when I flew down to Florida for a couple of days to look for an apartment. There were lots of issues involved, but the bottom line is that as much as I love the beach, I won't be moving to Florida any time soon. It's difficult to let that dream go...I've been chasing it hard for the past two years. But the time has come and I must learn to love where I am now and make the best of it. Thankfully I can still vacation at the beach a couple of times a year. For now, that will just have to be enough. So here are a few beautiful photos from my very short trip last week. Enjoy! :0)

It Happens

Somehow while trying to change my Feedly feeds over to a new Google account, I lost all the blogs I follow. Of course I know who you are, but finding your blogs to add again is taking me a while. So if you know I've been a reader of your blog or you are a visitor to mine, please leave a comment here and I'll make sure to get you all added to my new Feedly list. Thank you! :0)
