"Wine With Laughter" it says on the cork from the bottle of wine I took to the beach for dinner.  A dinner picnic with good friends.  The best night of summer vacation.  We had the beach all to ourselves.

Time to start a new...

Think of Birthday's as a fresh start,
Don't wait until the New Year to make changes. 
Birthday's & Anniversary's are a great time to start a new.

Today is my 15th Wedding Anniversary.  Yet another measure of time.  It seems like just yesterday and yet it seems like forever all the same time.  I couldn't imagine sharing my life with anyone else.  We fit together perfectly, like a puzzle.  He compliments my flaws and I his.  He is my best friend, my love.  We depend on each other the way you're supposed to. 
Things might not always be peaches and cream, but we work through them.  As they say, "what does not kill us makes us stronger," or like Ken says "it builds character." 
Ken supports my dreams and wishes and when ever possible he makes them come true.  Like artsyBE, he helped me start this blog.  He encourages me to find ways to express my creativity.  He understands me when I take "crazy photos" and knows that I see something special in those "crazy photos." 

"Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin' in to the future."

and as that time slips away I want to go with Ken, into the future, always and forever.


This journey called artysyBE is not over, even though my year is up.  There is still too much to BE done.


Time to Disconnect

Time to BE disconnected from reality
Time to Enjoy Family
Time to Listen to the waves crashing
Time to Jump in the Lake
Time to go Fishing

Time to Play with cousins
Time for a game or 2 of Rummy
Time for Taking Photographs
Time to Stay up Late
Time for Smores

Time to Sit and Stare at the campfire and the moon

Time to Relax

Time to BE


So, it's my birthday, the "BIG 40."  The actual day a lot less exciting than my surprise party last weekend.  This morning is actually like other Saturday mornings.  I read the paper and watched the Today Show while having my coffee in my favorite coffee cup and had a yummy breakfast made by Ken.  Then off on a mad rush to BJ's, home to pack and off for a relaxing weekend, disconnected at Indian Lake in the Adirondack's.  Today my son Alex gave me a heart shaped rock which he found on Scout Island.  I love it!  I know how much he loves me when he thinks of me when we're apart.  I love you.
