Hi, There!

The challenge over at Ching-Chou Kuik for the month of June is Butterflies:)  So I just had to be part of this challenge as I love butterflies.  They are so pretty, gentle, happy and peaceful fluttering around your garden.  His way of saying enjoy the nature I created for you.  

I wish I had a garden devoted to just the butterflies .... but I do have hummingbird feeders that are blessed with daily visitors of brilliant colors!!!   

We actually had a pheasant visiting us for awhile and he was so much fun to watch - now I hope he has just found better feeding grounds and nothing happened to him.  We also have a male wild turkey that loves to strut his stuff around the wild female turkeys that come to feed here too!!!  Yes - jungle habitat here!!  LOL  Till next time, enjoy nature when you can, hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!!

Yes indeed!!!  50 years have gone by in a wink of an eye and I can't believe it!!!  We are so blessed to have one another and all the blessings that the good Lord has bestowed on us.  We are so very happy and lucky and I praise and honor You Lord for giving us each other to love and to cherish for all these years.

I made this card back in 2012 and we just rotate it to each other each year as my private note inside says it all and it is so us - sitting and watching the birds come to our bird feeders!!!  Joy in all the simple things in life have given us such tremendous happiness.

Have a wonderful weekend and we will be enjoying a quiet dinner at our very favorite restaurant later tonight!!!  All diet plans are off for tonight!!!  Yippee!!!!!  Bring on the big plates, good wine, and oogie-gooey desserts!!!!  Hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn
