February recap

Warning..photo overload!
For such a short month, February has been non stop jam-packed for me.. but before diving into the doings for this month..
Let me share THE EVENT of January..
handsome BIG BOY BRAX..

Both mommy and daddy  celebrated their birthdays ..
but Brax commanded front row center for activities..

Moving right along into February, Mardi Gras activities have dominated the coast from New Orleans on..
To get into the spirit, I've photographed  Mardi Gras Trees,

and even a Mardi Pooh!
Then..my darling daughter celebrated her 50th birthday on the 4th! Grand daughter Mac supplied me with pics of the fun surprise for Lisa..

If that isn't enough,I did get hubby situated at my sis Di's place..
on my return Nikon and I had a field day playing along 30A..
that awesomely beautiful  scenic by-way meandering along the coast..

On the 10th, remembered my mom on her birthday with flowers....she would've been 94! Below is the last photo made of us together..I was headed back to California..
This was June 1971,she was 52..I was 26..
she passed away a week later..
Now, on the last nite of Mardi Gras..we change gears for Valentine's Day.. Yep mailed all my cards to my grands, their parents,my kids, my sis Di..and one to my hubby! But we will be celebrating the event this weekend!

 Joining these fun Wednesday parties..Come on..join us!
Outdoors Wednesday 


  1. My mom died in 1971 too, way too young. And like you with your mom, the last time I saw my dear mom I was heading to California.
    I like those coastal houses on the beach.

  2. Happy birthday to your daughter.

    Love the photo of you and your mom - such a treasure.

  3. Oh, your photos are so beautiful! Look at that Brax! He has changed so much and grown!

  4. Happy Wordless Wednesday!
    would be great if you can visit and link up at my blog.
    Have a great Wednesday.

  5. Brax really demolished that cake, didn't he! Happy birthday to your daughter! She has your pretty eyes! Love your coastal pictures! We are never ready to give up our parents! I lost my mother at age 4 and I have no memory of her, except a few scenes of her funeral :(

  6. Great pics................I had those white go-go boots around that same year!

    I'm sorry you lost your mom at such an early age, that was so hard for you. Mine lived to be 91 and the 10th anniv. of her death is coming up. I still miss her so much!

    Enjoy Valentine's Day..........you sound well-prepared.
    Hugs - Mary


welcome to my world of salty sunkissed breezes..
where time is not measured..
linger leisurely..
sift sugary white sand between your toes..
Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
