Weekend Notes

Happy Weekend! Did you all have a great week? I am so glad it is the weekend! That means I get to escape up to the cooler mountains, for some needed relaxation! Yesterday, my MIL and I went to breakfast and spent the morning catching up. About the same time, she called, my daughter in Washington called, and I had a fun talk catching up with her. As much as, and I know is going to sound strange, but I am grateful for Social Media, because, and I know some of you are like Ugh, Social Media and Technology, I will admit that it really has changed our society, but I'm not posting about my thoughts on it today, that would take over this post. My point is, my daughter loves photography and posts on Instagram, about the hikes that she takes, the places she's traveled in the Pacific Northwest, and I love the fact that even though she is so far away, I can still feel connected to her. This is no way to say that social media can replace,  a phone call to her momma,  that makes all the world of difference, just to hear the sound of her voice and how she's doing, how happy she is. You can't get that feeling from a text or a tweet!

  1. I cannot believe how quickly the week has gone by. Of course, we are buried in boxes every day, so I've sort of lost track! :-) The inspiration photo is gorgeous and I can't wait to see the post! I'm so ready for fall and loved the decorating ideas! Hope you are having a great weekend! Hugs!!
