5 fact fridaY...Pieces of me...

Oh is Friday did that happen??
This was my quiet week.  A week to refresh and regroup. 
And still the week flew by!

My favorite instructors, dear Kim Klassen and Xanthe Berkley sent us on a photo scavenger hunt this week...Pieces of Me.
Each day we were given two prompts...a total of ten.
Well, i got half of them finished...not too bad, right?
But this gave me a chance to turn the hunt into 5 facts FridaY...
killing two birds with one stone.

Each week we post 5 things about ourselves...a way to get to know each other alittle better...
sharing a part of ourselves...How awesome is that?

Last fall we started a major landscape project on our front was completed this spring...right before our terrible hot dry summer..the summer where we broke all kinds of records.  I managed to rack up the world's biggest water bill...but i kept each and every plant alive!
In addition to all the wonderful flower beds, the landscapers also laid down a stunning new walk and front porch with Virginia Blue Stone....
so dreamy and beautiful...sigh...

This is where i go every morning and evening to favorite chair.  
Sometimes i will be having a cup of joe or reading the latest novel or knitting...anything i do out on my back porch always puts me in my happy place.

My favorite morning drink...some days it is a necessity!

My post box at our small hometown post office is just so vintage...i just love the look. 
But there is bad news... they are tearing it down in favor of a brand new building with the ugliest boxes ever...booo...
I used the fisheye lens of my new Olloclip to take new fav toy!

My new journal that i am in love with...full of wonderful inspirational quotes.  
Have you ever had a journal that you just love so much that you are afraid to write in it?  
I know that sounds nuts...but...

Well...i hope that you had a little fun reading more little snippets about me.  I can not wait to learn alittle bit more about you too!  Just click on the banner above and it will take you on over to this fun linky party...see you there!

Until next time...
