Green of Summer

Looking forward to autumn colors as I enjoy the last bit of summer green along the Little Calumet River Trail – Indiana Dunes National Park.

Peek-a-Boo

Macro Monday

A moth was trying to hide underneath the petal of tall tickseed but I persisted! I finally had to get down on my knees to get a better view.

Memories

Making Unforgettable Memories

My longtime followers may remember these pics from previous posts. Forgive me for using them once again but this trip to Hawaii has been on my mind recently. Some may also know that my hubby is a professional pilot and I occasionally get to travel with him across the country and around the world to places like Paris, London, Germany, Cabo, Puerto Rico, and a previous trip to Maui.

So why was this trip so special, you may ask. Well, this trip was planned entirely by my hubby to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary in 2019. It was not tied to his work schedule and he was just a passenger sitting next to me, instead of the captain in the cockpit. That is not the norm.

My hubby realized that I loved Maui and the people there after I tagged along on one of his previous flights to the island. For that reason, he planned on Maui as our first stop on our magnificent vacation. Before coming home, we also flew into Honolulu for a few days. Seeing Honolulu had been my dream ever since I was a little girl. It was a place that I never believed possible to get to but I dreamed and a special person made it happen.

As I look at the life behind me, I remember many things that I believed would be impossible for me to do. I realize that they definitely may have been hopeless if not for a friend, a teacher, or a cherished family member who held out a hand or said an encouraging word needed at the time. Sometimes, all it takes one person to take the first step and then another person takes the reins over the next hurdle. That is how memories are made.

Make a memory in one person’s day and you might have just made one for yourself too.

Pause From Buzzing

Taking a Pause From Buzzing Around

A honeybee was busy gathering pollen in downtown Chicago’s Lurie Garden. A leisurely stroll through Millennium Park led me to little bit of nature in the midst of tall buildings in the Windy City.

Double Decker . . . Outhouse?

A double decker . . . . outhouse?

Grand Encampment Museum – Wyoming

Yes, that is what it is! A two story outhouse for those cold winter days when the snow was so high that it was impossible to open the doors to the first floor. At least, that is the story we were told at the Grand Encampment Museum.
