But here in this place I choose to record for the future how we lived our days, giving thanks for the many good gifts God pours out on us in our seemingly ordinary lives. Oh, how He loves you and me!

Oh yes! How He loves us and gives us sunshine when skies are grey.

{I promise to do my best to pull out a few favorite photos from the 230 I took last week and share with you soon!}

… a GIRL! oh my, I made need a second job…
