Summer Zoomed Past!

Been away for awhile.  My summer vacation to  Indiana & Tennessee (& Georgia) was great!  Enjoyed some wonderful family time.  Visited with my daughter, Wendy, in Georgia and was able to see her new place nestled in the mountains of Georgia.

Fall is here with lots of exciting things happening.  First Baptst Church has completed our New Welcome Center.  Most of my family is now a year older with all of our birthdays happening in September.

We will be spending Thanksgiving in Tennessee and Georgia.  First year in quite some time spending it outside of Florida.

We are waiting expectantly on the arrival of Beth's twins in early December and of course everyone is preparing for Christmas to celebrate the birth of our Savior.

Lots of activities at the church for all!

Have a blessed day!

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer.

Father's Day Weekend

My oldest stepdaughter came to visit with us for Father's Day.  She & Stella traveled to Crawfordville.  Tonight Beth, Stella, Jennifer, Jacob & Elliana, Henry & myself went to Victor's for dinner.  Food & family ~ lots of fun & fellowship.  Spending time with Elliana & Stella was priceless.

Sunday we are going to Wakulla Springs, one of my favorite Florida places, which happens to be only 5 minutes from my house.  Picnic & family!

Evalee's Baby Shower

We had alot of fun at the baby shower.  The decorations were adorable.  They did a beach theme since they live at the beach.  So cute!  Had fun seeing Evalee & all her family and friends.  It was so nice to spend some time with Wendy & Crystal.

I have a very good life!

My Art & My Life ~ My Journey!

I live in Florida and love it.  I am originally from Indiana and I love going back to visit family there.  I work at First Baptist Church as the Financial Assistant by day and by night I create beautiful pendants using vintage road maps.  I love vintage maps.  They remind me of simpler times when we used them to get us to our destination.  Whether it was work or vacation.  Come along on my journey!  Come see my shop at
