Notre-Dame Cathedral and Sacré-Cœur

I was looking through the photos on my phone the other day and came across this one of Notre-Dame. It is one of Bernie's favorite spots in Paris. I was reminded of the time we spent touring around Paris a few years ago.


One of my favorites to photograph the first time we went to Paris was the Sacré-Cœur. The Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris. 


Great memories. Can't wait for our next adventure. :)

Christmas Eve, I was in Atlanta doing a little project. It was a beautiful warm day in December. Unusual. But so lovely! As I was heading back to my car, I turned around and took a photo of Skyview Atlanta. Because it was so warm and it was Christmas Eve, families were taking the opportunity to be together, outside and enjoy the sights Atlanta has to offer.

I remember the year Doug died, my sister, Melissa came to visit us and we went on Skyview Atlanta. At times we were a little freaked out but then we started laughing asking, "What would Doug do?" He would have had that car swinging back and forth. He would be laughing with that infectious laugh of his and I would've been yelling at him to stop.

Good times. Special memories. Never forgotten. Always loved.

I love photography and I'm snapping all the time but forget to post in this space of mine. I'm going to take on this challenge of taking a photo a day. Let's see how this goes. 

Today is our last day of vacation and I'm enjoying this moment where Luger is chill and relaxed! He has been a crazy wound up mess over this holiday so I'm grateful for this peaceful moment.

All things new

I saw this prompt and it made me think about the last year or so of my life. I think most of the time you have no control over your circumstances. This past year and a half has been a very difficult year. I have had to deal with more loss than someone should have to deal with. 

I often say, I can only take one day at a time and some days are harder than others but I can't let those bad days define me. 

(my friend commented on my post and she read in a devotional that you can let your circumstances refine you or define you. Thought it was a great perspective on things.)

New roads, new days...all things new
