This week’s T word is Three!

Usually I put in a definition for the week but this one is pretty simple.

This week’s T word is Touch!

Texture is defined as “the feel, appearance, or consistency of a surface or a substance.”  I love nature, as many of you know. So it was quite fun to take a peek at my nature photos and find a few that remind me of texture. Enjoy!

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.

This week’s T word is Tropical!

After all of these winter storms it’s time to sit back, relax and dream of sunny beaches! We made a trip to Grand Cayman last summer for July 4th and loved the family time and fun. Building sand castles and sea turtles, watching beautiful sunsets & sunrises, swimming with the sea turtles (and smiling fish). And we even got to hold the baby sea turtles! Enjoy a little escape to the islands!

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 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.)

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!
