Oh Happy Day!

A special THANK YOU to all of the veterans today,

especially my sweet husband and to all of those

that are presently serving in the military and their families.


We appreciate your sacrifice!

What a blessing to live in this country and enjoy our freedoms.

And today is especially nice for me!

We are back in Florida!


I woke up to sunny skies and have a

weekend of highs in the 70s to look forward to!

Do you have plans for the weekend?

I can’t wait to visit all of my favorite blogs!

Have a wonderful day everyone!

Beautifully expressed thoughts on such sacrifice they have given for all of us.

Sounds like great weather, go and dip your toys in the ocean, it's wayyyyy to cold here to do that.

What a beautiful picture to start off the day.
I'm out of town again for another craft show this weekend. My husband and son are participating in the Veterans Day activities at home. Looks like the rain is going to hold off until later today or tonight. Yes!

You are so lucky to be in warm and lovely Florida! Our temps have dropped to upper 50 and was 29 last night. That's not as cold as some other places but it's a shock to the body when it happens quickly as it did this time. Thanks to your husband and all others who served to protect us. We are grateful!!-------- shannon


God bless your husband and all the vets that are serving the USA to maintain it's freedom! Lots of blessings. FABBY
PS: Our weather in this neck o d woods right now is 78-80 and no humudity, so it is very pleasant like Florida.
