2019 Flew By....

 I didn't blog all year...
It was a crazy year...

January- my step mom fell and broke her hip.
February- Don and I celebrated our 29th Wedding Anniversary.
March- I spent the entire month in my home town taking care of my step mom, dad and brother.
April- my step mom passed to her eternal home.
May-we moved back to our home town to take care of my dad.  
My boy got married!
June-was a blur
July- we sold our beautiful home in California and headed home completely : /
August-My guy started a new job (which I believe is straight from Jesus).
He doesn't travel as much! PRAISE!!
September-Settling in at home... 
October-Trip of a lifetime started-
November-Trip of a lifetime continued...
December- Home and celebrating with family and friends that are as close as family : )

I think I will start blogging again because I like it and I like taking pics..

January in Pics

Whew... January was BUSY...
My step mom broke her hip and I spent 10 days in my hometown taking care of my brother, dad and step mom.  She had surgery and then was in hospital and re-hab.  It was rough on everyone.  My brother is 53 and is a creature of habit but with momma down for the count, he got up and went to hospital everyday with me.  But he still managed to squeeze in his nap daily even at the hospital.

Then the second half of the month, I spent with my grandson in Texas.  My SIL was coming home from serving overseas for 9 months and my daughter was also away for about 10 days before.  So it was just me and my grandson for those days and then we prepared for daddy's arrival! It was emotional to say the least.

Seattle Flowers

Every time I am in Seattle, I walk to Pikes Market and get a bunch of flowers.  These are two bouquets that I picked up in the last few weeks.  
And the last picture is of a cute pumpkin and some fall leaves I picked off the trees outside.

So fun...
Just practicing my photography...

Best Friends Wedding...

I can't believe the places I get to go and the people I get to be with.

One of my best friend's daughter got married in July! She is also my daughter's best friend.  Which makes a heck of a fun time and a lot of tears.

My girlie and I got to fly out to Louisiana and then drive to Alabama to see this sweet girl tie the knot.

By the way, the beaches are gorgeous there... just so DANG hot! I mean come on.. there is no cooling off!

The wedding was gorgeous, the bride was gorgeous, the momma of the bride was gorgeous and of course her blonde brides maid is gorgeous.

It was a gorgeous time...

Seattle in July...

Like I said in previous post, we visited Seattle during the week of 4th of July.
We enjoyed the cooler weather which is always nice.
I say I could live in the PNW but all my friends say I would need more sunshine.
I am not sure about that.  I do LOVE the RAIN!

My girl and I enjoy exploring the city.
We have pretty much explored every nook and cranny over the last 6 years.

The job is almost complete and we are happy to be almost done BUT we have enjoyed visiting often.
