Welcome to another journey through photos…featuring family and home.

I love the photo above, as it shows some of my favorite books, Mary Engelbreit prints, and interesting things, like the wrought iron hanging.

My eldest son and his wife, Gabi, shared some photos from a Prague Photo Shoot at the Hilton.

Here they are, ready to point and shoot:

Good morning!  It’s the day after Thanksgiving here, and I’m still stuffed from yesterday.  But I still love looking at food…especially breakfast, so feast your eyes on my niece Amy’s recent weekend and some savory moments. At the table:  Amy, America, and Gavin.

And for the close-up, my favorite: (Note the Spiderman mug in the background – that belongs to Gavin, I’m sure).




Moving on to other recent meals, check out my Pre-Thanksgiving sensible lunch, with books:




Lest you think that I was completely sensible in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, take another moment to ponder this lunch of pea soup, with a strawberry margarita.




Then…last week, I had to sample some turkey and stuffing from Marie Callender’s…just in case I wouldn’t get my fill on the actual day.



I don’t have any photos from yesterday’s feast.  I was a guest at the home of my daughter’s new in-laws, and since nobody else had their phones at the table…I stifled the urge to whip out mine.


Over in Berlin, where my son seemed to be having some kind of moment, check this out:





What is your Post-Thanksgiving weekend like?  I plan to binge on Gilmore Girls…and meet up with more family on Saturday, at Yard House.  I will have photos of that event later.

Good morning!  As the weekend approaches, I am pondering what lies ahead, while sipping my coffee from the mug pictured above.  A favorite that I reclaimed a few months ago.  It was hidden behind many other items in my overcrowded cupboards.

Yes, despite all of my purging, there are still many places in my space that are less than organized.

As I was studying Facebook to see what activities are around for the weekend, I noticed that our little adjacent village of Clovis is having a Craft Beer Crawl.  Yes, it sounds great for those who love beer, but I prefer wine, thank you.

But I am sentimental, and my eldest son, who now lives in Prague (after several years in Berlin) is a beer aficionado.  Here is evidence of this beer love.  (The large beer below is his, not hers. lol).  This photo was captured when Craig and Gabi visited us this past summer.

He and Gabi are off to Amsterdam this coming week, so I look forward to more pictures of their adventures.

Meanwhile, here at home, with me not attending the Beer festival, I found some lovely photos of grandchildren. Yes, those young adults are growing older by the minute.  Here is my second son, Brett, with his two sons, who both have significant birthdays this month.  The “little” guy in the middle, Aaron, turns 18; and the dude on the right, my first born grandson, turns 21.

Here is Aaron in his cap and gown, with sister Aubrey, left, and a friend.  Aubrey just finished her freshman college year in San Diego:

Here is Fiona, my other granddaughter, in a moody looking photo:

A complete segue, now, to the Strawberry Margarita I enjoyed at lunch on Tuesday:

What does your interior world look like today?  Weekend plans?  Enjoy!
