Autumn Splendor 2014

 This is on a road near my house. I love driving through this area in the fall and winter. The draping over the road with fall colors and winter white is always a joy to see. Such a peaceful feeling.
 Headed up to a town close by that is called Ravenna, MI .There is a nice park there located near Crockery Creek. This is a nice little park with a walkway around the park so you can enjoy your time while visiting there.

 This is the Mill Creek Water Wheel located in Comstock Park, MI.
Located at the Dwight Lydell Park


One of my favorite photos of Mill Creek by the Water Wheel.

My Family

This is my wonderful family!
Here are 7 reasons that make me smile! My life has truly been blessed with these awesome characters! I am so grateful that they are in my life and make my life amazing!
This was last Christmas and it looks like I need to get an updated family photo of all of us. You would think that of all people, that I would have current pics because I am always taking photos. Well, sometimes we are not all together and that makes it difficult and sometimes the kids are like, NOT ANOTHER PHOTO. LOL
They will cooperate with me when I really need one though. That makes me happy!

Snapping the Flowers

 All of these flowers are ones that are growing in my yard as some perennials that I have and there are some that I purchased at the local greenhouse (Countryside Greenhouse), Love that place! You could spend a few hours in there and probably not see everything.
One of the reasons I like to watch the flowers develop and change so quickly is because it also reminds me of how life can go by and change quickly. There is so much beauty in the flowers and there is also tons of beauty in each individual person. We are all unique in our own ways.

 One of my favorite vacations with the family is when we were able to go to Maine. We had a wonderful time taking in all the sights, eating fresh seafood, charter fishing, whale watching and coming the beach for shells and just relaxing!

 A view from the beach house that we stayed in.

 Portland Head Light

If you ever get a chance to go there, you will enjoy every minute of it. We also had the chance to take in some candle pin bowling. We never have done that before. I would love to get a place started here in West Michigan. I think it would be a big hit.

Sassy Shelly Needs to Update!

Wow, I have not been on my blog in a long time. I guess I better get to posting a few things. So, I noticed that I haven't posted since September 2013. Well, I just looked back at all my photos and a lot has happened. I am still going to start posting from September 2013. Maybe next time I won't fall behind.
Going to start with my husband Tom. He has been in the USCG for 27 years and he just made Warrant Officer on 8-30-2013. These next photos are when we were waiting for the ceremony and then the pinning and certificate handed out. Congratulations to my husband! He is awesome and I thank God for him and the fact that he has served his country for that long. Now, on to 30 years then retire. :)

 Tom's parents and his boys Mitch and Mason.

They both got promoted on this day.
