Sunday Solitude . . . . . .

This time last week, my husband Lee and I were vacationing with dear friends and enjoying the lovely weather and scenery near Monterey, California.

One of the days we were there, we drove to the Pebble Beach area and walked alongside the beach while taking in the ocean views and exploring photo opportunities.

A solitary seagull perched atop one of the large rock formations caught my eye, and I decided to snap his photo with the ocean in the background.

(Click photo to enlarge. )

Lee and I don't get to see the ocean very often, but when we do, I'm always struck by its beauty, strength, and majesty.

Later this week, I hope to post a few more photos from our recent trip to this particularly lovely part of the California coastline.

Happy Sunday, Everyone!

A FRIEND is a gift you give yourself . . . . . .

Good Morning, Everyone! The theme of my blog post today is FRIENDSHIP, and I'm dedicating today's post to all of you, my Friends and Fellow Bloggers.

Having grown up in a small nuclear family and without many relatives nearby, friends have always been very important to me.

That, coupled with the fact that I moved away from my childhood home (read: family support system) at a relatively young age (17), has made me cherish my friends and friendships even more greatly over the years.

I'm a little short of words today myself, so I'm going to let some of my handmade card designs, and the wonderful quotes from persons far wiser than I, carry today's message through my blog post.

Happy Thursday, My Friends!

Until we meet again. . . . I hope you'll each give yourself the gift of a new friend.
