We settled in to this beautiful spot in Marathon for appetizers and drinks to relax after a day of kayaking. The sun and reflection was very bright but would soon turn to the golds, pinks, lavender of sunset over the Keys.
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.
We were so fortunate to have a beautiful day in Lahaina with our close friends. The girls all kayaked and had mani and pedis and then caught up with the guys for lunch.
I caught this shot as we were walking thru the town. The backlit tree with the shimmering ocean in the afternoon was breathtaking. I noticed the person enjoying their afternoon beneath the shade of the tree.
Daily Post Theme: Wish
As we get older, thoughts of a beautiful place to retirement linger in our minds. These dreams for me always include water… be it lake front, bayside or coastal.
A wish for our future.

WordPress Challenge- Path
I made a collage of some of the paths I have taken over this past year. A path can be like an old friend or a new adventure not knowing what you will find at each turn.
I also thought about the paths we take in life like moving, the loss of a parent, trying a new career. These journeys make you realize how important your relationships are in life. You may be walking through it alone at times, but to share it with a friend or family member somehow makes it a little less intimidating or more exciting depending on the path you’re taking.
Wishing you many paths to explore this year! “Happy Trails”
This shot was taken last winter on Hollywood Beach, Florida on a chilly morning that brought intense hues to the sky and sea.
Not pleasant as beach days go but the ocean calls and I must go!
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.
