A Little Ray of Sunshine


Thank you everyone for your wonderful holiday location suggestions, I've been pouring over each and every one of them!!!  We still haven't decided where we will be heading, but I'll keep you posted.

I've been a little under the weather this week, not sure what is going on, but I know something isn't right with my body.  I've actually felt a little like the sunflower pictured above, a bit droopy.




Mr. Tide was sweet enough to bring me two big bunches of these lovely happy faced flowers from the grocery store yesterday.  Even when you are feeling a bit droopy, you can't help but be cheered up by these gorgeous rays of sunshine!

I hope you each have a wonderful weekend!

  9. Oh my goodness! I somehow missed the chance to give you vacation destination options - - - I would TOTALLY have recommended Wisconsin.

    Door County is famous for its quaintness and beauty.

    The Wisconsin Dells are famous for water parks and scenic boat rides up and down the Wisconsin River.

    Hayward Wisconsin is our favorite Northwoods destination - - - lots of lakes, fishing, and a cute little tourist shop town.

    Bayfield is the gateway to the Apostle Islands. It is one of the cutest towns I've ever seen - - - and if you've never been on Lake Superior, you would be in for a GREAT treat.

    OK - - - just thought I'd throw in my two (or ten) cents worth.

  15. Those are wonderful flowers. Any man who brings flowers is a guy who "gets it." I used to know a guy who refused to buy his girlfriend flowers. His excuse was, "Well, they're just going to die. What's the point." Yeah... and now he's wondering why he doesn't have a girlfriend. Poor sod. Bringing someone flowers is like leaving your smile with them. Even when you go away your smile is still there. :)

  23. Sorry to hear you are under the weather...Icy Hot and the heating pad are my best friends for the past week, so I know how frustrating it is when you "aren't yourself". I love the sunflowers...they do make me smile.

    I read your last post and 3 places come to mind. I think everyone should see Savannah, GA at least once. It is interesting and beautiful and lovely to combine with a trip to Charleston, SC just a few miles away. I don't relax when there...my husband has me walking all the time!

    However...we just spent several days at the Vero Beach Hotel and Spa in Vero Beach, FL and loved it. The hotel is beautiful and within walking distance to several restaurants and little shops. I didn't get in the car until the last evening. The beach was wonderful and the spa...I had a massage and wanted to live there. It isn't exciting, there isn't a ton to do, but it was the most relaxing place I'd been in ages.

    As for our favorite place to go...Traverse City, MI. Beautiful scenery, very laid back (jeans, t's and tennis shoes most of the time), fabulous restaurants and shopping, dozens of wineries in the area and roadside fruit stands and of course the water. We go at least once a year (we are going in October) and plan to summer there after retirement. I wouldn't want to be there in the winter, but any other time...I love it!
