T. G. I. F.

I have a new way to celebrate Fridays . . . T.G.I.F.


T - Thinking About

Lately, I've been doing a lot of thinking about passion, purpose, and finding meaning.  Which all seems pretty "heavy" . . . but is actually kind of fascinating.  You can count on more blog posts exploring this "theme" in future.


G - Grateful For

I'm grateful to have had some time with my far-flung family last week.  My sister.  My son and daughter-in-law.  My daughter and son-in-law.  My dad and Tom, of course (not very far-flung at all, but still. . . ).  So nice to be together!



I - Inspired By

I'm inspired by the garden catalogs appearing in my mailbox . . . featuring spring bulbs in all their blooming glory.  I am certainly inspired to ORDER.  The question remains, though . . . will I be inspired to PLANT them come October???


F - Fun

It was fun to spend an evening with Kathy last Monday!  Who knew it would prove so difficult to find an open restaurant on Labor Day???  But we managed!  And then we spent some time sampling Tom's latest home brew (and a glass of wine) and laughing a lot!  It's always such a treat to meet other bloggers in real life.


T.G.I.F., y'all.

Enjoy the weekend!

Lovely family...everyone looks so happy and they have great smiles.
Super idea for TGIF...thanks for sharing and won't it be fun to see how we other bloggers interpret! I am adding to my repertoire with all kudos to you.
Enjoy the weekend!


Lovely photos in this post, and I love your take on TGIF!! Looking forward to hearing more about what you're "thinking about." Kathy's a hoot. ;)


This post makes me happy. Have a great weekend!


I am happy to see that you remembered to get a photo! I confess to camnesia when we met for lunch at Primanti's - but the company was excellent! Have an awesome weekend! XO


This is a terrific way to celebrate Fridays and one I'm going to look forward to reading! You really do have a beautiful family and lots of fun in your life; thank you for sharing all of it with us!


This is a great take on a Friday post! Isn't Kathy fun? I'm so glad you got to hang out! Your family photos are beautiful, too.


What a great take on TGIF! Love all your family pictures - everyone so handsome/pretty and happy. White Flower Farm - LOVE!!!! Have a wonderful weekend.


I like it! And really, there is so much to be happy about. Enjoy the weekend...maybe a little down time? xo


You've had quiet a busy and wonderful week with the very best people around. TGIF is a great theme and I look forward to hearing more!


What a great way to celebrate TGIF!!!


I like your version of TGIF and I think I will use it as a weekly journal entry. Hope you have a great weekend!


What a beautiful family! You couldn't ask for a nicer Friday. Enjoy your weekend.


So you went with the pearl earrings! Excellent choice. Perfect with your hair. Plus pearls are always beautiful, no matter what. But we haven't seen your shoes...?? The sandals with Kathy don't count.


We did laugh a lot, didn't we? And the beer was excellent!
