Many of you married folk, I am sure, feel that they have been blessed with a “Super Spouse.” The one that knows you better than you know yourself. The one that you thank God for. Unfortunately, like all good things in our lives, we tend to take them for granted. Tend to forget how special […]

Happy Holidays

Unless something worth blogging about happens, I will be offline until after New Years – spending my time with family and friends while enjoying our new home to the fullest. Until then, I wish you the merriest of holidays and a blessed new year to come. Merry Christmas. See you in 2006. Peace. k

Home Inspection

We had a gorgeous day for early November – sunny and warm. The hickory, maple and oak trees were alive with color and we […]

Little Red Riding Hood

Here is our Little Red Riding Hood, Erin, yesterday on her second Halloween. ‘Aint she just the cutest thing ever? The second photo makes me imagine Little Red running away from the Big Bad Wolf, when in reality the Big Bad Wolf was her Mama. We made it yet another year without a single trick-or-treater […]

2005 Pumpkin

Here we are, Halloween weekend and once again it is time for me to post our recently carved jack-O-lantern. This one took me just over an hour and is much simpler than years’ past. I’ve carried the symbolism of acorns and oak leaves throughout the last three years (my last name is derived from the […]
