Home again!

Hello my friends. God blessed me once again with a safe trip home from Portland. I did experience all four seasons in the drive, sunshine & flowers. Wind blowing tumbleweeds and leaves down the interstate and snow when I got close to home. Thankfully it didn't "stick" to the road. It just blew around a lot.

If course I have some pictures of pretty Piper for you! What Grandma wouldn't? She looks just like a princess to me. There's one of her Daddy holding her and Chloe, being her helpful self carried a bib downstairs for Mommy!

The flowers were waiting for me from hubby when I got home. Isn't he sweet? They were just what I needed yesterday. Let's just say it wasn't the best day I've ever had. Driving 6 hours by myself gave me waaay too much time to think.

Just when you think life is humming along nicely, God throws something in there to see how much faith you really have. It's not my "thing" that I'm at liberty to share, but prayers would be appreciated very much if you would be willing.

Mt. Spokane did brighten my morning today though and the blue sky helps.

And just look at that little hand on Grandma's. Isn't it precious? She was giving Grandma kisses on the cheek before I left. Oh how I'm missing those wet slobbery kisses!

I've just noticed that I've reached 50 followers! I believe that my next post will be about a giveaway so stay tuned!

And now, I need to go to the grocery store and take care of a few other errands. Thank you for being there my friends. I love sharing with you.
