Sunset Cruise...Duck Style

Yesterday was so beautiful that we couldn't pass up the oportunity to take a ride around the lake at sunset. I packed an impromptu picnic, threw my rubber boots on, grabbed my favorite captain and off we went. Tim insisted we take the "duck" boat. didn't matter what we went in as long as we went.  So our sunset cruise went a little duck hunter chic! 
The perils of owning your own business...

4 calls later (sigh)
A beautiful sunset.
Even the moon was feeling the love last night! 

Till next time...

Busy Making Memories

I never meant to take such a long break from my blog. The end of the year is typically chaotic and usually I'm employed.  This year I decided to dive head long into all things holiday since I was no longer employed. This included Christmas programs, lunches out, Christmas shopping, decorating, cooking and baking.  Unfortunately Tim & I ended the year sick and we both slept through New Years. Yuck!  Regardless we had a ball and made some great new memories! So long 2012!

We got snow on Christmas Day!!
Congratulations to Tam & Josh! Can't wait to meet Baby Thompson this summer!

Hope everybody has an amazing 2013!

Till next time...

Confessions of an oversized sweater wearer!

Absolutely love the ease of putting on an oversized sweater, a pair of leggings(or jeans or tights or...), throwing my hair in a top knot and hitting the road! They can be worn with boots of all kinds or your favorite flats. Yet another reason to sing the praises of fall fashion!
The oversized sweater is always a great "go to" piece to have hanging in your closet.  They are so comfy and so chic. If you haven't invested in one yet, what are you waiting for???

Happy Monday!

The Photographer

“There are two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.” ~Ansel Adam

My friend Jeanne is a photographer, well more like an artist with a camera. She sees the world through a lens, even when she isn't holding a camera. She has a love of metal street art and an uncanny ability to capture humanity at its lowest and still somehow make it beautiful. 

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”- Aaron Siskind

  "Look through a camera lens, I promise you will see things differently. Light, depth, texture and personality are all different through a lens. It really makes you focus (pun intended) on the world in front of you." Jeanne May,

Hello Ladies!

  Our 9 year old washer decided to stop working. The repairman said he could fix it for $700.00 and I should at least get another year out of it. $700 for another year??? No thanks! We got a great deal on a new set! 

If you're going to do laundry, you might as well do it in style!! (We'll have this room renovated by the new year!)

Get out there and enjoy the fall leaves before winter takes them all away!
