Four Days in Savannah

After way too much time spent trying to get Google Photos and Apple Photos to play nice, I’m finally ready to share some of the photos from our trip to Savannah last month. I could summarize the days spent there in just a few words (delightful, relaxing, warm, lovely) but I will try to elaborate…

Playing Favorites

January will be over soon so I’m late to this party, but I just found out about a WordPress blogging challenge called “Bloganuary” with daily prompts to encourage regular writing. I haven’t looked at all the prompts I’ve missed but yesterday’s was “favorite photo you’ve ever taken.” I am terrible at picking favorites. I’ve probably…

The Sunday Post: Making Time

I realized recently that I’ve been slacking in writing something in response to the blooms I pick each week from my little watering can of prompts. It’s not like I haven’t been pulling one each week, although I think I have missed a week here and there. When I received these my instructions were to…
