Keepin' It Goin'

makes me happy.

My week up north with Kev was everything I could have hoped for and more.

After all the diving, eating, drinking, fun and games...

and fabulous opportunities to hone my photography skills...

I felt completely fulfilled, relaxed and content.

But when I woke up Friday morning, I knew there were a group of girls, at a different cottage, on another lake, ready to cap off my vacation in style!

The three and a half hour drive flew by as I was filled with the excitement of celebrating...

Sammy's stagette!

Now, I'm not going to go into a ton of detail here, as I had the pleasure of making some amazing new lady friends whom I don't want to scare off too quickly by plastering them all over my site, but let's just say... they sure kept the good times a goin'!

Water Babies

make me happy.

Yes it's true... I'm a water baby. And diving off a dock into a clean fresh water lake has got to be one of the greatest pleasures in life that I've found.

Luckily, I've got some friends who feel the same way. Turn up the volume like we did and imagine yourself diving in with us!

make me happy.

This is my family.

I'm very blessed.

I've recently come to this realization...

the way I love them,

which is more then can be expressed with words,

is the way I love everyone.

Because I believe...

the way that you love everybody...

is a reflection of the way you can love anybody.

Up North

makes me happy.

With every vacation I take in Northern Ontario my desire to pack it all up, find myself an isolated lake, build a log cabin full of bunk beds for friends and family, all while listening to music like this grows stronger and stronger.

Play the song, look at the photos, and tell me if you get where I'm coming from.

Our 10th Season

makes me happy.

Yesterday our softball championships capped off another fabulous week of vacation for me, many photos of that to come but, I had to begin this week's postings at the end because I woke up this morning feeling all sentimental and stuff.

So grateful to have enjoyed 11 Sundays swinging bats on these gorgeous diamonds...

and hangin' on the bleachers with these lovely people.

Now, I know the late summer's evening sun can cast an almost magical glow upon things,

but in my eyes, my teammates did appear to be glowing at the banquet last night.

I was just feeling so much love and joy for them...

our league...

and all the friendships we have made over the years.

So who's up for another 10?
