The beloved, Amelia Bedelia

"Amelia is making cakes and pies for the family to eat. On the list is a date cake. After a moment of pondering where to get dates on such short notice, Amelia finds a calendar, clips out all of the dates and dumps them into her cake batter."

Happy Birthday Mom!

Even though we’re thousands of miles apart…
Every day, you are connected to my heart.

“In Nature we never see anything isolated, but everything in connection with something else which is before it, beside it, under it and over it.”

~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Oh Vail, you're a beauty

Let us spend one day as deliberately as Nature, and not be thrown off the track by every nutshell and mosquito's wing that falls on the rails.~ Henry David Thoreau

"Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air..." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

The tide recedes, but leaves behind bright seashells in the sand.
The sun goes down, but gentle warmth still lingers on the land.
The music stops, yet echoes in sweet, soulful refrains.
For every joy that passes, something beautiful remains.
