Photo Challenge – Twisted

This week we are asked to show something twisted.

I love big, big, chunky jewelry – the more colorful the better.  Hubby calls it my “Betty Rubble” jewelry.


I’ll let you in on a little secret.  Children love them too.  I can always count on my grandchildren wanting to climb up in my lap to play with them and I score extra hugs.


But no matter how carefully I wrap them up when traveling, they always get twisted together and it’s a nightmare trying to get them untangled.


But it’s worth it for those extra hugs.

This week, we are asked to show the detail that makes a good experience a truly great experience – to celebrate the cherries on top.

Photo101 – Connect

Photo 101 – Day 6

Today, we are asked to interpret the theme “connect” – whether through social media, a handshake or meeting of friends.

Roads, Trains and Baby Delivery – Three Ways to Connect!

This is the view from the top level of the parking garage at the hospital where my new grandson was born earlier this month.  I think the name of the street is so appropriate!

Photo Challenge – Harmony

Harmony has a meaning outside of the world of music: “the quality of forming a pleasing and consistent whole.”  The challenge is to post a photo that is, or makes you feel harmonious — through your eyes.


Mom + Dad = Baby

Introducing my new grandson born March 2nd.


Photo Challenge – State of Mind

Every photo we take says something about our emotions at the moment of taking it. So this week, share an image where you see a particularly strong connection between what we see and what you felt as you pressed that shutter button on your camera or phone.

State of Mind – Happy and Exhausted

Our twin grandchildren – almost three years old – are visiting this week.  I don’t know how mom and dad do it.  Even the stuffed cat looks tired!

And our fourth grandchild is due in March so add blessed to the list!
