Welcome to Amaze Me Monday!

Hi Sweet Friends, hope you are having a great weekend.
We've been getting a lot of rain here in North Carolina and the spring garden is so green, lush and full of flowers.  I'm really enjoying this time of year and all the rain, as the dry months of July and August will be here all too soon.

Hi Sweet Friends, I'm so glad you are here for AMAZE ME MONDAY!

A Heartfelt Note...

We were having a great time at our annual girls mother's day beach week with our moms, aunts, siblings, cousins, and daughters.  One of my sisters had had to leave early Wednesday morning to be home for her husband to head out early Thursday morning for a hunting trip; they have a farm and she had to be there to tend to the animals.

After arriving home, she spent the afternoon helping her hubby around the farm and noticed he kept belching.  She asked him if anything was wrong and was told it had been going on for a few days.  He didn't think it was anything serious (he's a doctor) and even though it was frequent and causing her concern, he didn't want to go get it checked out.  He told my sister that he did a search on "Google" for belching and found it related to excess gas, heartburn and acid reflux; but nothing serious.  Little did they know a few hours later he would have a heart attack and he is now no longer with us.

I hear this so often;
an odd pain or feeling is left unchecked,
not deemed serious enough to go to the doctor and now that person is gone.
Please, please...if you ever experience something out of the ordinary that causes you the slightest bit of concern or your loved one asks you to get something checked out by a doctor...please do.
It would be much better to be sent back home with a doctor saying there is nothing wrong than to let it go; it's not worth losing your life.

Love to all!

Welcome to Amaze Me Monday!

My, oh, my...can you believe it's already the first day of May?  This year is off to such a fast start!

May is a great month around here.
Every year for the week of mother's day the girls in our family head to the beach to spend the week with my mom and aunt.  There are eight of us and we have such a fun and special time together!

It's also my birthday this week,
and while I love celebrating and eating lots of cake,
I'm ready for the clock to stop on aging!
I came across this saying a few years back; a great reminder when turning another year older starts to get the best of us...

A Timeless Log Home

Thursday, April 28, 2016


It's a dream of mine to one day have a place in the mountains.
I can picture it ... a new "old" colonial home built using a historic log home that's been moved to the perfect piece of property with mountain views and a rushing stream surrounding it.

It's just a dream and I'm not sure it will ever become a reality so it's a real treat to tour a home that has the look and feel of the one in my dreams, like this one.

Welcome to AMAZE ME MONDAY!

I hope you are having a great weekend.
These days I've been making it a point to spend more quality time with the special people in my life, so this week makes for the third time I've had to hose down the screened porch due to all the pollen...man is that a job!  It's worth it though; the porch is the perfect place to share coffee, hot baked goodies fresh from the oven and sweet conversation with family and friends.
