Pink Saturday: Pigs of Smithfield

These little piggies are so adorable I just had to share. I know at least one blogger in this community will recognize these.

They are a part of the Porcine Parade-- click here to learn more about it

Happy Pink Saturday, hosted by How Sweet The Sound @

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Blue Monday - Beach Day

A beautiful day at the beach...

The Grandview Nature Preserve has no boardwalks, bathrooms, shops, restaurants, and very little parking. It is a protected environment. Never crowded.

Love taking the kids to a beach where I know I won't lose them in a crowd. They had a blast playing in the waves.

Beautiful day!

Sharing the blues with Backyard Neighbor and all our friends around the world.

Have a wonderfully blue day!!

Peaceful mornings are priceless

Since our big move last year I have been swamped with life. All good stuff that happens when you have kids, home to maintain, pets, and trying to get or do a job. It's life and it happens and I consider myself blessed to be busy because of it.

Almost an entire year and I am finally taking the time to just sit and write, read, listen to the birds, and just be one with nature. We rented a house in this small town, primarily because the schools are great, secondly because it is a safe and beautiful neighborhood. 
What makes it beautiful is simply the accessibility to nature, watching the sun rise and set unobstructed. More than anything is the large number of birds and other small animals we enjoy watching.

Sharing some peaceful blues was such a treat for me. Smiling Sally made me look for blues and actually helped me to focus in times when I was not all there. Sally passed away recently and I was saddled to learn the news, however, I believe she is resting peacefully in a sea of blue.

Sharing our blues in honor of Sally on

Have a beautiful day!

Pink Flowers and quiet mornings

Sometimes we need a little prompt from another blogger to really notice the beauty around us.

With little time to say much, I realize not much needs to be said.  It's a beautiful day in Virginia. I just spent an hour peacefully enjoying my quiet morning. Can't ask for anything else.
