About Me

My photo
Trying to remember that there is always a reason, always something that makes you smile during the day- recognizing the event, person or situation that made you smile will make your day seem that much better.

I am sure I have written about this place before...My grandparents live across the street from the water...It is a place that centers me...a place that I can look around and appreciate the beauty.   There is a place down off one of the boat launches where I have had many firsts in my life....my first kiss (one summer when I was 11), my first cigarette, my first heartbreak.  This is the place that my husband would have proposed to me if he didn't get delayed at work.  Sitting on the rocks letting the wind whip through my hair...I can actually just tune everything out for a little while.  I haven't been down there yet on this trip but I will go, probably at sunset.
There is so much beauty here...the flowers are in full bloom, the grass is green, you can smell the salt water when you walk outside.  I need to find hte time to take a walk with my camera and take some pictures.
Do you have a place like this....a place that no matter what mood or trouble you have is like a breath of fresh air that calms you? 
I am off to shop, get pedicures and do the other things you do to distract someone from a surpirse party that is being organized around them....so nice to be on this end for a change, instead of being the one trying to make it happen!! Hope that your weekends are fabulous!! Hugs


  1. Sounds wonderful - and so peaceful. Enjoy your day, so fun! Hugs to you sweetie.

  2. I am so happy that you are where you are and able to experience that kind of peace and relive the joys of your childhood. Get all you can out of it and please, "Pictures".

  3. I really enjoyed this post and, like you, I really enjoy the water. Hope the surprise party goes really well end enjoy your pedicure etc. Do try to take some photos to share with us when it's all over.

  4. I have just the place here...my Rock Hollow.

    Your words helped me see your special place.

  5. I had a place like that in NJ when I was growng up. Still think about it every now and then. Now I go to the beach when I need that peace. Sounds like you're really enjoying it. Hugs!!

  6. Oh yeah some photos would be great water is so peaceful, although for me when the girls where little I would be most relaxed when I could put on some music turn it up load and I do mean loud and just dance and lose myself in the music.......

    I don't get the time to do that anymore.......:(
