Project 52, Week 47 ~ Reflections





Gratitude 

~Week Three~ 

I'm thankful for country drives with my dh; for owls  hooting softly in the evening's quiet and I am extremely grateful to be able to celebrate my 4 year anniversary of being smoke free



We have new neighbors on the hill
Every time I pass this gorgeous gate I think of
TexWisGirl and her neat Texas gates.
I never get to see anything like that until now.
 I think these folks are from Texas!

  7. Once you live in Texas, you tend to take a little along with you when you leave. Perhaps that is why they have this neat gate.
