Today is our daughter’s 26th birthday. I simply cannot imagine where the time has gone because it just doesn’t seem that long ago that I heard the words, “It’s a girl!”. Yes, there actually was a time when most of us didn’t know the sex of our babies until they were born.

On this eighth “Day of Thankfulness” I am thankful for sunshine. As my regular readers know, I’m a summer girl. I need warmth and sunshine. I enjoy the occasional rainy afternoon but for the most part I like to see the sun. It’s been beautiful since we returned from New Orleans earlier this week (we aren’t talking about what lies ahead) and I’m thoroughly enjoying it.
During our time in New Orleans the trees here turned the most glorious shades of red and gold. I’ve really been enjoying my walks with Shiloh as I admire the beauty of this season here on Apple Tree Farm.

It was difficult to drag myself away from the news but I picked up my daughter and we walked around the park. Here are the photos I took:
