Wordless Wednesday & Photo Challenges - Water & The Open Road

"The single greatest thing you can do to change your life today would be to start being grateful for what you have right now.
And the more grateful you are,
the more you get."
~Oprah

The photo challenge theme over at the Paper Mama is water.  Oohhhh, water.  I live a mere five miles from the beach and I surprisingly have very few pictures of water!  I guess that is what happens when going to the beach isn't a big event, but part of every day life.  Spoiled?  Yes we are.   

The Paper Mama


But, I did find this shot of a fountain on City Island.  I cropped it, otherwise it is SOOC.  Through the spray you can partially see the yachts in the harbor. 



The In a Yellow House Photo Challenge is being hosted by Ashley at Ramblings and Photos.  The theme - The Open Road.  Gah.  I've got nothing in the way of cute country roads or freeway shots. 





But, I have this.  And I'm pretty sure she thinks she's headed down the open road, with the wind blowing in her barely-there hair.  Life is a highway, my dear....or a sidewalk.

LOL I totally get the beach comment in FL. My MIL you to ask us why we weren't at the beach ALL the time. I told her when you live here you get use to it.

Can't wait to catch up with your blog. Just peeped the letter to your Hubs and the latest bedtime challenges. Looking forward to reading them in their entirety. Who says Miss Chloe isn't drinking water in that fancy sippy cup and her orange slice outfit?! too cute! -EW

That picture of the dolphins is cool! And of course the pictures of Chloe are adorable as always. I love the one of her on her car. She looks like she is getting ready to take off!

I missed you at my WW yesterday. Sorry I didn't get over here sooner.
