52 Tuesdays Challenge #23: Together

Welcome to week 23 of the 52 Tuesdays Challenge! Each week I chose a word that begins with at T and share my photos, stories or even a quote. I ask that you join me in the Challenge and share your own photos, stories, quotes, whatever as well. Just link back to this blog post or add your own blog post link to the comments. Have fun!

This week’s T word is Together!

What I love about the word together is that it means we are sharing, doing, being – all of us at the same time. And then it makes me curious about what everyone else is doing, together!

One quote that fits the word this week is:

The best thing to hold on to in life is each other – Audrey Hepburn .

My husband and I love to adventure together. Sometimes, if things don’t go perfect, he’ll say “Making memories”. And we laugh because it is true. They will be adventures to tell our grandchildren about. So enjoy my Together photos and the accompanying stories then share yours with everyone by linking back to this wee’s T Challenge!

Because I love vodka martinis and lots of color, this display on the cruise ship from our honeymoon is a still-life favorite – nothing better than vodka and olive juice together!

This photo is from our honeymoon. We were in Vancouver and taking a tour of the city. At the park this little family of raccoons hung out together asking for ice cream leftovers. They were pretty cute!

 

You’ve probably seen posts of my pets on the blog. My cat, Tori, came with me into our family and then Cedar was our next pet to be added. Cedar loved to try to play with Tori, but most of the time she ignored him. But I did snag a picture of them napping together once…

This week’s T word is Texture!

I have a lot of photos of nature and in some I can almost feel the object’s texture. So I am sharing a few photos with YOU!

 

Every time I see this photo I remember the silky feel of the petals and the chill that the rain left on the rose.

This little hermit crab was snuggled in on the beach in Middle Caicos. You can see the grains of sand on its beautifully colored shell. Reminds me of my toes in the sand as the water washes the sand around.

This last one was taken in one of our favorite spots, Beavers Bend State Park. After major flooding destroyed much of the area along the river it uncovered beautiful layers of rock that were both slick and cold with the river water.

This week’s T word is Tree! 

I love flowers so a flowering tree is a big bonus for me. The one I am sharing with you today is one of my favorites – it is in the yard where my husband grew up. I also love it because it is just a beautiful representation of the seasons. So I’m sharing with you today the series “Glenna’s Dogwood”.  (Glenna being my husband’s late mother.)

52 Tuesdays Challenge #20: Tranquil

Welcome to week 20 of the 52 Tuesdays Challenge! Each week I chose a word that begins with at T and share my photos, stories or even a quote.

This week’s T word is Tranquil: peaceful, quiet, calm. 

My tranquil places are all in nature. I absolutely love the beach! So I thought I would share new photos with you of some of my past trips to the beach. (and some have my family in them because it’s even more fun with family!)

Love it when my hubby shares what he finds when we are snorkeling!

52 Tuesdays Challenge #19: Tiny

Happy Tuesday!! It’s time for the 52 Tuesdays challenge! Join me in sharing photos, stories, quotes, or whatever else you have in that creative brain of yours for the T word theme of TINY! Then don’t forget to link back to this post and we’ll share your Tiny with the world!

This week I admit to prepping for the post. It just so happens that we went out to our land last Thursday and the spring flowers were everywhere! While that isn’t so great for planning to add cattle it was perfect for my camera and for today’s challenge.

There are quite a few this week and also look for more photos of the spring flowers soon. And if you want to see a couple from the archives check this post out.

Hope you enjoy!!

 

 

 

 

And lots of these!

 

And some slow motion in the wind….

Still loving the 52 Tuesdays Challenge where I toss a word beginning with a T out there and you share your photos, stories or such related to the word?

This week the word is Tail. At first I thought I might have chosen a difficult word but once I looked into my photos I had so many cute tails!! Which to choose from? So hope you enjoy!
