Beauty Filled

There are some day when you look for your beautiful sunset… good days to end it beautifully or bad days when the sunset reminds you of the hope of tomorrow.

The above sunset I captured while on an anniversary trip with hubby in September. We were in South Carolina for this particular wedding anniversary trip and the sunsets were beautiful. Each day there were different colors and the mood of each sunset was equally calming. I took a lot of pictures on this trip and I hope to start sharing them and showing you some of the beauty I captured on our love trip 🙂 Have a beauty filled week 🙂

2 years…

I can’t believe I have been blogging for two years. I just received my notice from WordPress yesterday…
Happy Anniversary!

You registered on WordPress.com 2 years ago!

Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging!

I started my blog to have a place to share my life, my ideas, my animals, and keep track of life if we ever are blessed with kids. That way they can see where we started. In the past two years we have had ups and downs, trials and successes, joy and sorrow,  as everyone has had… I have grown as a person, a blogger, a friend, a daughter, a wife, and most importantly a daughter of the one true God 🙂 I think back to some of my first followers who I still “blog with”, and to the follows that I have gotten along the way, my “blogging friends”. I value their comments, ideas, and support on my own personal journey. I also enjoy checking in on their journeys along the way. so thank you to each one of you who follow me, “like” my blog, and post a comment. Each comment or “like” brings special happiness and lets me know there are people out there who do care, are kind, and are happy just to click a little button to let me know I am on the right path 🙂 Thanks to you all 🙂

ATV’s and outdoors

I wanted to share something tonight I feel strongly about. We as humans benefit from being outdoors. It helps with mood, energy, spirit, and health. Kids especially need to be outdoors and play. It helps them with mood, energy, creativity, imagination play, social skills building, self-esteem building, and so much more.

I thought I would share with you one of my husbands and my favorite outdoor activities (as we have many). On our one year anniversary (many moons ago now it feels like) we decided to do an outdoors trip which included riding ATV’s through the mountains at an ATV park in Pennsylvania. We had a great time and always enjoy riding ATV’s.

This is me on an ATV in PA.

There were all sorts of trails to ride on from easy to super hard and we enjoyed most of the light to moderate trails (and a couple of the harder ones) as we felt since we don’t get to ride that often on trails like this it would be safest. It had been raining all day and we ended up covered from head to toe in mud (you may not be able to see it here, but we were). Even in the rain we had a blast and built memories that will last a long time.

This is my husband on the ATV.

This is another thing I love about the outdoors, the memories you can make. I hope you have outdoor plans for this weekend if your weather is nice. Even if it rains the puddles can be fun to jump in especially if you have little one… or even a pup or two 😉

Do you or you families have favorite outdoor activities? If so please share them with me 🙂
