Fun and the Giraffe Feeding!!


In response to The Daily Post weekly Photo Challenge!

What is more fun than watching your child feed the Giraffes?
I will tell you what, NOTHING!


Recently, I have helped a couple friends with booking their cruise and answering questions. One of them is about to be going on their honeymoon, plus they are first time cruisers. Both couples have asked why I wasn’t a travel agent, lol! I have so many tips and tricks and details I am sharing with them about their upcoming trip. While I can’t help out on all kinds of travel, I do know a little something about cruising… well, at least cruising on Carnival because as of yet that is the only line we have cruised on.


But, it got me to thinking. I may not be a travel agent (actually no desire) but that doesn’t mean I can’t share my information, tips and advice to other travelers, cruisers, Disney vacationers. So I am working on creating a new tab on the blog for Travel.


I intend to put tips and tricks for cruising, details and information on ports and excursions we have went on, Disney tips and tricks we have learned along the way.

I hope I can give some good advice and information on places where we have… been there done that…

If you have a particular question about cruising, ports, or Disney feel free to ask and if I don’t know the answer I will do my best to find out for you.


But seriously! Look at that face! That is the face of a doll who thought feeding the giraffes was the most fun thing she had ever done!



Wanting Spring, this Winter


If only I could live in perpetual season of spring; the perfect season.

A world filled with constant blooms, gentle warm winds and temperatures always in the 70’s.

But such is not life. There is winter right now, and while we don’t get much here in Georgia. We get more than I need or want. However, my daughter loves it, even when we simply get just a dusting of snow.


Snowball Fight!

This year we got enough snow for her to make a snow angel. ♥ 😉


Mommy, look at my snow angel

And even build a snowman.


Do you wanna build a snowman?

Rule of Thirds – A weekly Photo Challenge


Each week the Daily Post has a photo challenge. I am by no means a professional photographer but I do enjoy these challenges!

This week it is the Rule of Thirds – Sometimes the focus of you picture is not in the center but around the edges….

Shadowed Protection



I took this picture a few years ago while we were walking along the sidewalk one Saturday morning. I loved the way our shadows looked and thought it captured the innocence of child and the essence of protection from a parent.

I am sharing this for the Daily Post weekly Photo challenge: Shadowed
