Chan…chan….changes!

I guess we all look at our blogs when the new year starts and wonder what needs to be changed.

This year I’m going to blog a little more ‘spontaneously’.

cIMG_0758

Will most of my posts still come up at 8:33 in the morning? Probably! lol I don’t know what got me started on that time but it works well.

I may even blog about different subjects!

Maybe I’ll get wild and crazy! lol

We’ll see!

The photos I’m sharing in this post were all taken on Monday.

Hubby and I took a walk at Sholom Park while we were out running errands.

It was a glorious day, in the mid 70s.

Many of the trees looked like Autumn and I think these are some of the prettiest photos I’ve taken in a long time. (most of these have not been altered or even cropped)

And then a nice couple stopped and offered to take a photo of the two of us.

So we smiled for the camera.

I hope you are inspired to ‘blog happy’ this week!

HAVE FUN!!!

We got an unexpected dump of snow last night so I don't know how happy I am about that - lucky you, is all I can say!! Hah!! Have a great day!!

ann said...

While those of us in the north and probably the east are still in the grips of a very cold winter, it is refreshing to find you cheerful and happy and warmed by the sun. I look forward to happy blogging. Good inspiration. What a wonderful photo of you two.

Diane said...

Fab photos-- love the one of "the two of you." And trees with leaves?? I kinda remember that.

Happy@Home said...

Lovely photos from your walk in the park.
I think your new blog plan sounds like a winner. Can't wait to see how you get wild and crazy. Ha Ha.
That is a great picture of you and hubby. You both look so fit and happy.

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Counting the days until we join you in the sunny state of Florida.
Blogging more spontaneously is what I had hoped to do last year, but I tie myself too closely to memes.
A nice photo of you and hubby Diane.

Jane and Chris said...

It not only looks beautiful...it looks warm!

Hi Diane! I love spontaneously! :) I think that's what makes our blogs so interesting. Love your 'walk' snaps and you and your hubby look so pretty and happy.

Debby Ray said...

I had to do a double take on the dateline of your post because of those "autumn leaves"! That is amazing, although I am not that familiar with the weather and timing of the seasons in Florida :)

Linda @ A La Carte said...

It is so pretty there. Dull and brown here! I'm heading to Houston to see my Mom today!!! Love the photo of you and hubs, you look so happy! Hugs, Linda

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Diane, you always sparkle...must be that wonderful smile, and your personality shining through.

Yes it does look like Autumn there, I was looking at your photos and thinking, she's pulling our leg...lol.

Do the leaves drop off eventually?

And yes, changes are a good thing, it's nice to freshen up for the season.

Enjoy a happy day darling.....love Ria....x !

Dayle Allen Shockley @ A Collection of Days said...

What a lovely walk. Love the pic of you and hubby.

We still have autumn hanging on in Southeast Texas, as well. I think our color has lasted longer than any year in recent memory. Even with below freezing temps a few nights, the leaves haven't given up.

Dee @ A Lapin Life said...

It sure looks more like fall there. I loved seeing the picture of you and your husband.

Art and Sand said...

It is expected to be 86 degrees today so we are taking are kayaks out on the water.

Have a sweet day, Elizabeth

Spontaneous is good!! Your photos are so pretty-what I need is a better camera I think, you guys are a cute couple. Thanks for your visit to my ABC Wed Post, I got that chart off the internet, thought it pretty funny.

Everything looks so pretty! I love your warm weather photos! We're having a week of no rain and temps in the 50's so it's pretty nice, but you know I love the rain!

I think it's great that you are going to be spontaneous on your blog this year. Ours is a little of this and that too. I have noticed that you take some great nature pictures, and I appreciate those so much, as nature is one of my favorite places to be. Very nice pictures, Diane.

Looks like a great park for walking. Neat to see what you did with that portrait of the two of you in the later post (it is wonderful both ways).
