I'm Thankful!

I'm Thankful..... Thankful for so many things.... 

Thankful for our Grandbaby Boy who is to arrive in February and his healthy happy parents...

....and thankful for our Grand kids in New York....

.....thankful for our Lily who greets us with kisses and tail wags galore every time we come home...
I'm also thankful for a Thanksgiving that started with a huge meal on Thursday in Virginia, continued to North Carolina on Friday with more family and food....

and I am especially thankful to have a place to go to that gives us a chance to get away and finish out this thankful time somewhere WARM, peaceful and calm.....and in the 70s and 80s in November and December!

Can you imagine? We are in paradise, and it couldn't be more perfect! Low humidity, warm....not hot and just crystal clear water!  When we got on the beach, it appeared that a storm had passed by and lots of stuff had washed up and it was pretty 'fragrant', but there were tons of urchins and fighting conchs!! I saved so many by throwing them back into the water, but couldn't save them all!!

They were everywhere!! Even in the water!!

The tides aren't real low, but that's okay, they are mid day and it's just beautiful! The shelling is pretty good too!! 
My finds
Hubby's Finds...

I found a double jewel box mini!!

see that Alphabet cone ...Next to two beautiful Horse conchs....(one of my favorites!)

I found some coral and some shark's eyes

.....and a HUGE lace murex! It wasn't perfect but I couldn't resist it was so big!!
So stay tuned this week, I hope to have lots of things to share with you that just makes us more thankful!  For now, sit back, turn up your speakers, think about 75 degrees and will be thankful too!!

Happy Birthday to my Wonderful Hubby!

Today is Hubby's birthday! It is milestone birthdays for us both this will just have to guess which ones because I'm not telling! :) 

Hubby has raised three amazing daughters who have grown to be such outstanding women and have wonderful families of their own and he is a loving Grandpa to 3 more beautiful girls and a wonderful boy, with another boy coming in February! He loves his family first, and will fight for each and every one of us no matter what. 

He loves music, was so fortunate to grow up in the 50's with Saturdays spent at the teenage club dancing, and thanks to satellite radio he can continue to relive those special times.  He is very sentimental, but wouldn't want just anyone to know that.... and he is my best friend! We look forward to the day when we can live our dream of being residents of our new home in Ft. Myers, and are working every day toward achieving that goal. 

He deserves to have a special celebration just for him, and his started early this weekend, he got to spend some time with 2 of his girls, and get some early birthday wishes and I hope he will continue feel special today! 

Happy, Happy Birthday Hubby.... I Love You!!

:Hugs:: and Kisses!!
