Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more.  If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough.

07.24.14 Finally get to see this place

The Grand is a big place where weddings happen every weekend.  I had never been in there & was excited to see what it actually looked like for a wedding rehearsal..
it was beautiful. A little dark for my taste.  But very elegant.
I love how different weddings can be. The last one was on a property of an orchard, this one in an old elegant theater.

It was a day late, but cake can never be late, can it?
07.26.14 Wedding Day

We survived another wedding day!

07.27.14 Much Better in front of the camera

 I got to take pictures of babies ... 3 of them actually.
Miss Em didn't care for my camera the last time I did her pics, but this time, with 2 boys on each side of her, girlfriend was looking at me giving me the SMIZE I knew she could do.  High Five Miss Em.
Though I did say in this pic, it looks like she's saying STTTTOOOOPPPPPP!!!!!

07.28.14  Working on my #100SummerMiles
My beautiful friend Kendwy is doing a #100SummerMiles challenge to see how many miles you can get in until summer ticks away.  It's been fun to keep remembering to get a mile in here or there.  It all adds up.

Side Note - did you see on the news lately that they said no matter how slow you run, how far you run, doing 1 mile a day gives your heart the same benefits of all the fast incredible runners.  SCORE for slow people!
07.29.14 Lunch Picnic
The plan was to have Ricky meet me for a picnic.  It took longer for him to get his food then expected so he couldn't make it.  I ended up having a solo picnic by myself.  It was such a pretty day & I was just thankful to be out of the office for an hour, inhaling real air, looking at blue skies, watching boats go down the river.
Stopping for an hour in life to just be.
.... Be still & know I am God. ~Psalm 46:10...
07.30.14 Strength

We're going into August... & this beautiful girl is still with us... living every day fully.
Loving us... us loving her.  The vet told us she would be gone by April at the latest.  I think Sydney is saying, "April of which year lady?"
I appreciate all the words of encouragement for her, & all the prayers lifted.
Keep 'em going!
What are you thankful for today?


  1. So grateful that your sweet dog is still enjoying every day with you and Ricky...a real blessing indeed! My prayers continue! I'm thankful I've made lots of lasting memories with my girls this summer...nothing more precious to me!

  2. Yay for Sydney! Love the 100 miles challenge... I think I'm going to join! After all, I gotta put those new tennis shoes to work :)

  3. I'm not going to lie, but solo picnics can be so great every now and then!!

  4. I absolutely love that quote - I've never heard it before but tucking that one away for future use!!

  5. Rebecca Jo ...yes for slow runners and we have the same tennis shoes! Silly that makes me smile...
    That Psalm is my favorite Psalm too...just say'in....
    Yeah for that beautiful Sydney....

    Peace out...

  6. Every day is a good day for cake :-)
