Cheers! – Throwback Thursday

Just because I sat at the kids table, didn’t mean I couldn’t raise a toast to having a good time.

Trailing – Throwback Thursday

While strolling along a secluded trail with your horse sounds lonesome, I continually return to this activity because I find it so comforting.

On the Hunt – Throwback Thursday

Spring has sprung, and what better way to showcase the season than an Easter egg hunt!

Caked – Throwback Thursday

A 1st birthday celebrates more than the child, but a year of a family becoming whole.

Move Over Moon Rover – Throwback Thursday

You can imagine the kind of imagination I had as a child when I said I wanted to go to the moon. I may not have gotten there, but you can’t say I didn’t try.

Making a Splash – Throwback Thursday

Escape, that was the meaning of Spring Break for me. After being indoors for weeks dealing with the cold winter months, there was nothing more freeing than being near a body of water splashing around, without a care in the world. Add in the rays of warm sunshine and you have all the makings of the best memories to start the season.

Let Me Take A Selfie – Throwback Thursday


I never thought much about this self-portrait until I came across it in a drawer full of photos. The longer I stared at it, the more familiar I became with that stubborn yet optimistic 18 year old. Ten years ago I was different person with different interests and perspective on life – but no matter how far I strayed, at the end of the day this is still me.

Gone Fishin’ – Throwback Thursday

I remember waking up at 3:30 AM to get ready for all of our family’s fishing trip. Our first stop was always the beach to dig for our own bait. Dad and Grandpa would dig for the worms, Grandma would be holding the bucket, and Mom, my sister and I would be holding the flashlights until the sun rose. It was the family activity that always made our family bond stronger.

Open Road – Throwback Thursday

Family vacations typically meant visiting relatives I have never heard of in places I didn’t want to be. Then my parents surprised my sister and I with a camping trip where we did nothing but cook, swim in the lake, and play games around the fire. Never again did I cringe at the words ‘family vacation’ after that.

The Reason Why – Throwback Thursday

I can write you a list of reasons as to why I married my husband, but none of them compare to the fact that for the past 12 years he has constantly made me laugh … and that makes me happy.

What trait do you most admire in your significant other?
