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 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!

A color that has really grown on me the last couple of years is the color turquoise. You’ll find a bit more of it in my house. And now I see it more in my photos. One reason I may like it is that when the water is turquoise it is beautiful and that is usually what you see at the beach.
But for today – Where’s My Backpack Challenge Turquoise I am sharing a few photos from our honeymoon to Alaska back in 2010.

While rummaging through my photos – electronically, of course -I found this door at such an angle that I really liked the color and the contrast. The door is to the Reno Q. M. Depot Post Chapel at Fort Reno, OK. Did you know it is right on Route 66? Here is a link to my blog on Fort Reno.
So I am sharing it today as part of Cee’s Oddball Photo Challenge.
The Daily Post Photo Challenge: A Good Match was fun for me this week. I took the time to go thru some photos that I had taken several years ago and see what matches I could discover.
A good match is a window and a door. And that old saying “When God closes a door He usually opens a window”.
Hope you enjoy!

Tea – it has two meanings for me – that sweet tea that the South is known for and the delicate little cups that hot tea is served in.
Here are a few photos of one of my favorite tea sets (well, two of my favorite tea set items -sugar & cream) that I’ve seen. In a bed and breakfast in Fort Smith, AR this was on my breakfast tray. Enjoy!
Have any photos of your favorite tea set, cup of tea or brand of tea? An old teapot?
