37 Years....A retrospective

My mom brought me a bunch of old pictures recently, which led me down a path of revisiting my life. As we went through the pictures, the kids and I compared how different I looked from myself of today, but how similar, at different stages in my life, I looked like one of my children or another. I started thinking about who I was during these different times in my life. I decided to get all the pictures in one place...the good, the bad, and the ugly... to remind myself of the path I took to become who I am today. 3 years Old

2009 Inaugural Visit to the Falls

Ahhhh! It's been a long time coming. The kids and I made our first trip of the year to our all-time favorite swimming hole and water fall. It was about 100 degrees out, so the cool water was a welcome refuge from the heat. I wish I had a water proof camera. Hanging out under the waterfall looking up through the water dropping was indescribably beautiful.

Fun after a hiatus

After a very long hiatus, we finally got to hang out with some very cool people and one of our favorite families :)

How Does My Garden Grow?

I love flowers. They make me happy :)
I grew everything from seeds saved from last year, or from divisions from friends and family.
Woo-Hoo! I'm a seed-saver:)

And growing things we can actually eat? Forget about it!

OMG! I can't wait!
