Celebrating the 4th of July with Alexis, who loves holiday festivities and celebrations like I do! We are thankful for our military friends who sacrifice and serve, and we remember them as we enjoy our freedom.
And the fun summer birds, finding something to drink and a place to relax!
We enjoyed the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade in Charlotte! It was a joy to hang out in beautiful spring-like weather, with the Cook family who came in from Boone for the day!
this Nativity was a gift from Joey, from his time in Northern Ireland
Senegal Nativity, carved and crafted by the Malkia Monkees
New England Christmas, a gift from my brother many years ago
Putting away my Christmas decorations is always a bit sad for me. Each of these has meaning and memories, and putting them away means the season is finished– and it may be awhile before the house is filled with family once again. TRUST reminds me that each season is beautiful in its own unique way, and I have much to look forward to, with hope.
thankful for family, home, the nativity of Jesus. Emmanuel: God with us. Amazing.
