Happy Trails

08.26.17HappyTrails

As the host for this year’s reunion of our Happy Trails tribe, I was facing some scheduling challenges, but it all just came together today. Woo Hoo!

Each time we’re together, it’s like no time has passed in between. Dating back to our first times in Santa Cruz (a LONG time ago), we eat too much, sometimes drink too much (what????) hahaha, we shop, laugh a lot, tell life stories, bitch about stuff, and just have a wonderful time.

And then we all ride off into the sunset with unbelievable, forever cherished memories.

The Pacific Northwest and the beach is calling us, girls.  See you soon!!!!

Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

Missing My Brother

Dear Mike,

You left us this day three years ago but time hasn’t dulled the memories I have of you.  I miss you.

I’m grateful for the good times we had, so I’m sure you can understand why I swear at you sometimes for checking out so soon.  Namaste’

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Sign Says

This week’s photo challenge was interesting.  Not hard to find signs everywhere; just hard to find signs that are unique.  So I decided to re-visit some of the ones I took  during my 366 project last year.  Sure brought back some funny memories and what I had to do to get some of these shots.  Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend.  Namaste’

16 Today

It’s my grandson’s 16th birthday today and it’s difficult for me to process that this much time has gone by already.  I didn’t take the top picture of him because he’s in California.  We may be separated by miles but not by memories.  Thought I’d share this handsome young man with all of you.  I love him so much.  (The bottom picture is one I took of him on his second birthday).  Namaste’

Winter Solstice Baby – Happy Birthday!

Besides being the winter solstice (shortest day of the year and a special alignment this year of all the planets in our solar system), this day is even more special to me because it’s my daughter’s birthday.  So I want to take this opportunity to honor her.  She’s my baby, my youngest, who turns 41 today.  Amazing where all the time went.  Lots of beautiful, wonderful memories of moments we shared together.

This picture was taken when she was three and it’s one of my favorites.  So I took a picture of this picture and added a little winter solstice effect.  As you can see by the color of her hair and that look in her eyes, she is not one to be messed with.  Trust me, I know. LOL.

Hope you’re all having a spectacular day!  Namaste’
