Travel Tuesday: The Easter Edition

OK....moving right along!  For today's post, we are sharing our Easter on the Road pics!

We spent Easter in an RV Park in Sneads Ferry, NC because it was the closest one to my sister's house...that was actually decent!  In fact it really was a beautiful park.  My brother drove down from CT and my sister and brother in law and B and I all met at a quaint little restaurant called the Village Cafe.  

What an awesome chef!  It was a buffet with ALL the fixins and they were taking orders for made to order omelets...that were superb!

**I debated and debated whether to post some of these pics, but I decided in LadyBug's memory that I would share them here.**

I hope you enjoyed visiting Sneads Ferry, NC with us and celebrating Easter.  

Yes, OF COURSE, we get Easter Baskets!!!

The Beginning of the Trip South...

I had planned an entirely different set of blog posts, but as most of you know, my world has changed so I am showing you some of our shots from the very beginning of our trip in early April.  

Most of these photos are driving days on the way down to Topsail Island, North Carolina. 

I hope you enjoy them.

It was really beautiful there and we all enjoyed it.

Wish we could have stayed there.

Rest in Peace my Little LadyBug


At this very moment, I am too fragile to say anything really.
LadyBug was so very special to me and we had a very real connection.

We did not know she had cancer.

She had such a wonderful time on our trip and we treasure each and every moment.

She had a very large malignant mass in her body.  True to her character, she never let on that she was in pain or not feeling well.  

Chloe is truly grieving.

LadyBug will live on in our hearts...our little lovebug.  Forever.

There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth.
It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of all its beautiful colors.
Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass.

When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. 
There is always food and water and warm spring weather. 
The old and frail animals are young again. 
Those who were sick, hurt or in pain are made whole again. 
There is only one thing missing, 
they are not with their special person who loved them so much on earth. 
So each day they run and play until the day comes 
when one suddenly stops playing and looks up! 
The nose twitches! The ears are up! 
The eyes are staring and this one runs from the group! 
You have been seen and when you and your special friend meet, 
you take him in your arms and hug him. 
He licks and kisses your face again and again - 
and you look once more into the eyes of your best friend and trusting 
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together never again to be apart.

We Are Finally Back!


As most of you know, we have been out of town for the past month or so and many things were going on that we had not planned on.  We certainly did not plan on taking a month long break from the blog!

The insurance company decided to deny my coverage for my meds that I have been on for twenty years, and my Dr tried to appeal the decision.  That too was denied.  So, just a couple of days before we headed out, I was informed that I had to change to some new meds.  This has been a MUCH bigger transition than I had could have ever imagined and I am still struggling every single day.  Hopefully, time will help.

We saw some beautiful things while we were gone and the temps were HOT!  

Myrtle Beach is one of our Happy Places!

Since we missed Sugar's See Beautiful Hop, we would like to share our Smiles for Sugar Collage!  Sugar always made us smile!

Life is Good: The LadyBug Edition

This photo was taken shortly after we had adopted/rescued LadyBug!  She really was having the time of her life and so...the title works here...Life is Good!!  She was so scared when she first came to live with us...but once she settled in with Chloe and Zippo...she just became little Miss Personality!!  Just look at that smile!

We are joining Sugar and Dachshund Nola for the Black and White Sunday Blog Hop!

Almost Easter Egg Time!

I am throwing it back today to one of LadyBug's first Easters with us!  She discovered what hard boiled eggs were all about!

There was NO way I was going to keep her away from those eggs...this dog could LIVE on eggs!!  As soon as she realized that there was an actual egg inside those pretty colored things...she just helped herself!  She would lick the outside of the egg first...which of course made her face turn blue! 

There is no shortage of laughter in this house with these two...let me tell you!!

Enjoy your weekend!
