Worth a thousand words...

Pictures

...how they just uplift your day and your spirit
whether it is from someone you love...or a good friend...

I walked out to my mailbox this week and had a smile put on my face as soon as I opened a package from a dear friend...

She had taken quite a few wonderful pictures of my girls when she visited during our trip together to the botanical gardens last year...

And she made copies in all sizes for me and sent them to me
She loves photography and I think she is great!

She very simply made my day

After a very long week where I almost packed up my hubby and boarded him on this ship


{you can laugh because I'm only kidding ~ you all know I wouldn't do that (wink, and add a chuckle here) }

He had a stressful week to say the least  {ick}

I love my hubby, and he is truly my love...

but it was just one of those stressful weeks for him

but it put me on edge a little bit...actually a lot...
please tell me you feel like this sometimes...

and I felt like I was literally calling "S.O.S" quite a few days...not really but I just thought it was fitting to say that with my shipwreck picture:)
{found here}

So my sweet dear friend


Brightened up my week with a very heartfelt card

included with tons of pictures...

Now those kind of friends are keepers...

the lifers...

And I love that I have her...

she knows how much I love some well-taken photographs...

but what she didn't know is how much they meant to me this week.

Thank you my friend!

{and good news...we sold our bed tonight}
insert a big ole' dance of joy from me!

And I added a new song about memories...I think you'll like it...
It's all about slowing down ~ not moving too fast ~ capturing those frames of time...

You are not alone in feeling "funky" when hubby has a stressful week. I SO understand! I know I SHOULD be able to be happy and upbeat even when he's not, but it's hard. I'm wondering- where will you be sleeping tonight? And have you picked out a new bed yet? I can't wait to see pics!

I think we all have those "weeks" at some time in our lives. I'm a picture freak so that would have totally made my day too...

Stay strong, I hate weeks like that. But, those photos and her taking the time to do that is so awesome. Great friend. Lulu

I've had one of those years, so I completely understand.

You have a special friend who cares enough to do something so special. I hope next week is better for you!

Honey - I have had MONTHS like that. I so understand.

you are blessed to have such a wonderful friend.

I'm so excited that you sold your bed!!! I have got to get my butt in gear and get some of my stuff sold so that I can get some NEW stuff that sings to my heart.

Happy dance for you that you sold your bed! What a dear sweet friend you have...those photos look amazing..I want to do a photo wall in my bedroom using all the same frames. Sending you much love for the new week. xo
