Monday Memories

Looking thru my photos to see what challenges I might participate in I found photos that brought back some great memories. I’ll share a few with you today.


Hanging in Cali with my girl – she was only 10!


Hubby had a deer eat a cracker he was holding in his mouth. We’d been seeing each other for about a month


Love being on our motorcycle – driving along the Talimena Drive


My beautiful Tori. She was sick.

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…

52 Tuesdays Challenge #17:Tail

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!

Express Yourself!

Expressions – they speak volumes, as they say! I always love that not only do we as humans have expressions but so do our furry companions! And with kiddos this is even more true as they still feel the freedom to express themselves!

Hope you enjoy and maybe chuckle a little!
