William & Kate: and their Royal Wedding...

I spent the last hour of my evening last night watching all the hoopla about the Royal wedding... I have to say that my favorite part was when William and Harry came out and shook hands with people! Can you say exciting? I woke up this morning a few minutes before four and shuffled down the stairs to the sofa where I would be planted until eight this morning. Every minute was thrilling and beautiful. Congratulations to Prince William, and the beautiful Princess Catherine!

Beautiful Princess Diana... I am sure she was very missed today...

I thought Carole Middleton looked lovely (below right), Camilla looked as good as she ever will (below middle. I'm sorry I am just not a fan of Camilla), and whoever is on the left wearing the dreadful blue canoe on top of her head with a flower in it, is in a terrible need for fashion help!

And the lovely kiss on the balcony of Buckingham palace. That was the icing on the cake!

Happy Easter!

Have a wonderful and beautiful Resurrection day remembering what it is truly all about~

Happy Birthday, Gabriel!

It is the moment I have dreaded... I'm out of photo space! What will I do?
I guess purchase more. :(

I was going to put a picture but I obviously can't. So...

Happy 11th birthday Gabriel!
I love you so much~

Only spring time.

I learned something new the other day-- they do say that you learn something new everyday-- but this 'something' will actually be put into practice, and not just remain in my head as a fact. No... this new 'something' that I learned is beautiful. It made me happy as I walked through the hallways, and saw "it". "It" being the beautiful golden light. The light that made the perfect silhouettes that were shown in my last post. The light that only comes with spring sunsets- and that is the only way that I would like it. Spring has so many of those things that only it can bring. And beautiful golden light that is perfect for silhouettes is one of them.

Tonight the sun was setting, and a stillness came. The stillness that only spring time brings. It wasn't the stillness that comes when there is a fresh blanket of snow laying on the ground-- but, a quite, warm, and happy stillness. And, again- it was a stillness that only spring can bring.

And as we basked in the happy stillness, we also stood around clapping our hands at the end of the driveway, taking turns singing the verses to one of our favorite songs. It was one of those "This-is-what-I-love" moments. And we enjoyed it.

I can remember several years ago, standing at the kitchen sink and sucking on the seed of a mango. It is tradition that I get the seed-- and since I am all about tradition-- I stand at the sink sucking on the mango seed. Every single time we get a mango. I hope it is always like that, because I would hate to break a tradition- and mango (seeds) are so darn yummy.


But, of course, there are some of us who opt for the actual meat of the fruit. I like that too.

 And then there are strawberry's. Big, red, juicy ones that-- you guessed it-- only spring can bring. My last summer held many-a-day in a strawberry field... under the blazing sun that there was no getting away from in the big open field that when on for rows, and rows.

I love Fridays- but, Friday nights are even better. Happy weekend.


There is something lovely about silouettes. The softness of the golden light outlining the dark shapes and forms. I discovered tonight that our house has wonderful lighting for silouettes when the sun is setting. The sun pours through the windows, and shines through the hallways with a bright happy look.

I love how just a small patch of sun shining on the wall creates such a distinct look know as a 'sillouette'.
The sun is so rejuvinating, and refreshing. It makes me feel inspired, and happy.

You are very welcome here sun.
I am glad you have come.
