Seashore Souvenirs

Some people bring back shells and some tee shirts,

some bring back kites

and some salt water taffy,

but I brought back...

a lemon scented geranium

(I only WISH I could share the fragrance with you all!)

Rainbow Swiss chard

(yum, Swiss chard!)

and my favorite purchase--

white alpine strawberries!!

I am SO excited!

All in all-it was one AWESOME trip

and I will be savoring the memories all summer long :)

Have you ever brought back plants from your travels?



Note: One of the first places my DH and I lived was a small, older house which had a whole lot of alpine strawberries planted in the side yard. It was there I learned to LOVE these tasty little morsels of sweetness! There is a lot of information on the web including photos should you be interested in trying some this year. Now I just need to decide where I will plant them...

Happy Birthday to You!!




birthday to you!!!

And many, many more!!

Love you:)


Of Seagulls at the Seashore

Yesterday a friend and I went to the coast

it was just something I wanted--maybe even needed to do.

There were loads of seagulls there--and, as there always is, a tourist (or maybe a resident) was feeding them!

Whenever I see seagulls I think of my mom. She loved these cuties and often fed them too!

She also loved the coast of Oregon and Washington--it was her favorite place to go and that is why I think I needed to go there yesterday...instead of the mountains, the Gorge or elsewhere.

The coast reminded me of her and the memories were sweeter than Salt Water Taffy:)

Happy Mother's Day this Sunday and everyday Mom! Miss you!

Love always, Aimee

National Day of Prayer 2011


Acknowledging God for who He is:





Abba Father

Realizing who I am

His child, by His loving grace.

Seeking my daily bread,

a healing touch,

His protection,


wisdom for problems--big and small,

His will.

Or just saying thank you for all I have been given.

Short or long,

a portion of Scripture;

a song that speaks to my heart's deepest needs --

a written prayer;

a thought directed upwards-

from my heart

to His,

rising like a fragrant offering to His throne in heaven.

Blessings, Aimee
Two of my favorite prayers are:

the so called Prayer of St Francis

and the Serenity Prayer.

A great book on prayer is: Richard J Foster, Prayer.

Love all his books and so did my mom:)
