Slowing down….

Howdee all,

With Samarrah and Jeff's wedding only 4 days and all the pieces of the puzzle starting to fit together nicely…

cape visit_076Its time to take a cue from this critter....

cape visit_072And slow down a bit…

cape visit_069

We need to slow down enough to enjoy all of the special moments of this upcoming Wedding weekend to its fullest.

Samarrah and I had acupuncture appointments yesterday which helped us both relax.

We both needed that. Allot of stress involved in planning a wedding.

All is done, now we just sit back and watch it all happen.

I may not post anything until after the wedding…maybe a teaser photo, but until then.

Wishing you all a very Happy Labor Day Weekend.

Slow Down and Enjoy!

Yesterday Samarrah, My Jeff and I went to NH to go over timeline and other details with the Inn owner and banquet manager.

Dowds_006There were many butterflies around..

I was a bit distracted by them..


But ,I was good and only took a few photos.


The excitement and anticipation is building.


In just a bit over a week we will be here.


For a fun filled wedding weekend.

A busy mind…

Howdee all,

The Wedding is just about 17 day away now…

  I sleep, eat and think wedding allot these days.

Lists of things to do go thru my head all day and night...

I needed to clear my mind so I went for a walk.

I don’t know who you are..

Feverfew maybe?

These looked like Jerusalem artichoke.

I was told by Sicksta they are probably some kind of heliopsis

Did I add those songs to the playlist?

What about the basket for the programs..should we buy or borrow one?

Why hasn’t the Band leader called us back..must call him today.

I need to pick up my gown from the cleaners..

Does Samarrah need help today? ……..

Green Gem~Ebony Jewelwing

Howdee all,

In my last post I mentioned I took a gazillion photos of this gorgeous metallic green

~Ebony Jewelwing damselfly ~

(Thanks Donna and Kerri for the ID)

Try as I might..

Lexington walk_078

I could not capture the metallic green color.

Lexington walk_067It looks shiny blue here..when it should be green!

Lexington walk_071Gurrrr

Lexington walk_084

My facebook friend Donna says ...”infuriating to photograph because one can never capture its metallic beauty.”

Lexington walk_086

She is sooo right. I could not capture it as it was.

Lexington walk_095

It was lovely and shiny shiny bright metallic green..

Lexington walk_098

An amazing gem of a creature....

Lexington walk_115

Anyone else have luck capturing this beauty?

Jeff and I are busy helping our daughter with her wedding plans.


I missed a cool Swarovski trip I was invited to this past weekend.

I appreciated the invite…

It was fun following everyone's updates from the trip~though, it did make me very jealous. :)

Still happy that I stayed here to deal with any last minute issues.

20 days and counting… Smile
