Spring 2012

It's been MUCH too long since I've updated my blog!! I've had a very busy couple of months...So, just to catch you up to my "doings", I'm just going to post a collection of pictures!!

I attended a friend's wedding and made it a girls-getaway! It was a very nice & relaxing 4 days!

I met up with my fellow, local P.I.N.K. Method girls for a healthy (of course) lunch and lots of walking around downtown Asheville, NC. We had so much fun "catching up" and sharing our successes, struggles and seeing "less" of each other! :)

And now, here are some photos of our beautiful (and early) spring weather & scenery...

The azaleas, the tulips, the sunsets, the morning fog......it's all a part of our mountain springtime!!
I was blessed to be a part of the N.C. Ms. Wheelchair Pageant as the Judge Coordinator. It was such an honor & blessing to meet these wonderful women & be a part of their special day.
I've been doing a lot of praying for a few of my friends who are dealing with cancer.....I am inspired by their courage, their strength and their faith.
Shirley and Clay are dear friends of ours. Clay has been diagnosed with angiosarcoma. He has had 4 surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation. He has chosen to not go forward with anymore treatments, surgeries or scans at this point. Love and prayers are sent to them daily....
Others are also dealing with this horrible disease....a very special little 7-year old has been fighting her diagnosis for about 3 1/2 years now. At this point, she is showing "No Evidence of Disease"! And we all celebrate this statement!! Her Mama has become very, very loved by us and so has her big-sister. Out of respect to them, I have not included any names or photos----but would LOVE to ask you all to include them in your prayers, too.
We are now busy preparing for summer! We've opened up our pool and have it ready! Soon, we begin building our pavillion/outdoor kitchen!!! Pictures and blog will surely follow that project!!
