I realize that it’s really fall everywhere, but fall in Ohio is a special time of year. The air has a crispness about it, the trees that were so full of lush green leaves are now bursting with the warm and vibrant yellows, reds, oranges and purples that only fall can display so beautifully. As you know, if you happen to be a friend or
Lenny and I took a little road trip this past Memorial Day weekend to see our soldier and his beautiful wife in Fort Gordon, Georgia. We left as soon as we got off work Friday evening and arrived at Fort Gordon on Saturday around noon. Except for the fact it took us a couple of hours to get through security and obtain our pass, it
I am all the time telling the kids that I’m going to run away from home with their dad. So, this past Spring break, that’s exactly what we did. We ran all the way to beautiful, sunny, relaxing and welcoming Puerto Morelos, Mexico! Located in the Yucatan peninsula, midway between Cancun and Playa del Carmen, you’ll find Puerto Morelos to be the perfect tranquil spot.
I was recently perusing the Midwest Living website when I ran across these “Midwest Moments” captured in photographs from various people from across the midwest. First up is this beautiful photo from Iowa: Then there’s this beautiful field of tulips from Illinois. And this lovely barn from Minnesota. I love this picture of the barn!
I was sitting on our enclosed porch this morning getting a tutorial ready on my laptop when I noticed a male Cardinal had just flown into the front yard. He was a surprise visitor and such a treat on this cool Spring morning! I just had to share a picture of my little surprise visitor with you: Isn’t he beautiful? I don’t know what birds

And so I thought I’d share these four ideas with you and some of my blogger friends (call
We have a dear friend named Debbie who was an incredible artist who painted beautiful watercolor prints of one of our most favorite places on earth – the French River in Northern Ontario, Canada. You might be wondering what this has to do with the title of my post, Mexico Watercolor Printables. Well, as I was looking through pictures from our trip to Mexico, I ran across these pictures:
Lenny and I are going on a little trip to the beach and hope to take in some snorkeling. We’ve decided to buy a waterproof camera so we can capture all those great underwater shots. I’m pretty excited about the trip (an understatement) and a little uneasy about traveling outside of my comfort zone. But, I’ll have my Lenny with me and it will be
I may have mentioned this or maybe you already know this about me, but sometimes I think I’m the funniest person I know! Seriously! I TOTALLY crack myself up. Well, when I’m not amusing myself by being funny, I’m sometimes amusing myself by being clever. And, believe it or not, this is one of those clever moments for me. I am a big fan
Lenny and I were fortunate enough – or maybe stupid enough or adventurous enough – to travel from our home in Ohio to San Diego, California and back last summer. We made the trip in our trusty Ford Freestyle, while towing our little pop-up camper behind us. We made many stops along the way, with Colorado and Utah being some of my favorites. Of course,
One question I get asked frequently is how to arrange photo groupings on a wall. Whether it’s up the stairway, in the baby’s room or maybe over the mantle, it really helps to better visualize the space if you can see it before you hang the photos. Below are some images of a few wall portrait display ideas. Maybe these images will help inspire you
