Daily Post Challenge – Security
My shepherd Bailey is truly my security system when my husband is not home.

She such a sweetheart who sticks close by my side. She is always on alert and her bark is a great deterrent for anyone passing our home.

She is my four legged best friend…. A true, loyal pup to our family.

A New Purpose

Photo Challenge- Repurposed

This week’s challenge brought me to a current project I am working on for our backyard this summer. I am reusing old deck board my husband set aside for me when he took on redoing our back deck and turning it into a fun sign. We chose some of our favorite vacation destinations and places that we lived and am painting each on a board with how far they are from our home. I am enjoying using the repurposed wood, which brings a worn quality to the signage that I like.

It’s Not This Time of Year Without…

It’s the one thing that has been a part of every Christmas since I can remember.  Even if we are traveling for the holidays, the smell of pine and the beautiful lights brings the Christmas season into our home.

I love the family trip to pick out the tree, choosing the perfect one in our eyes each year. Although, putting the tree in the stand at home is always frustrating!

Other than that moment, our family tree is a treasure. It’s a place for family photos, watching our kids open gifts and a peaceful place to reflect… to be grateful.
