Wherever The Wind Takes Us

It's time for another Notecard Party at A Haven For Vee.  I love that party.  It's kind of fun to look back through the archives and see photos you completely forgot having shared and getting the chance to share them again.

I always choose a theme for my cards,
 and this month my theme is a color.  

Can you guess what it is?

pssst... pink


That picture doesn't count, by the way. I've already shared it at a Notecard Party. It's just the photo I like to use to introduce a Pink Occasion around the home place.  We happen to be having one such Pink Occasion this week. Miss Whimsy has completed yet another year at Mercer University...

... which means that she is about to begin her senior year!
How did that happen?

In other years, we would have packed her up and brought her home for the summer by now. This summer is different, though. This summer, she is staying at school to complete an internship

Yeah, I'm pretty bummed about that.

I do have her home for a whole week, though, so I  plan to fill it to the brim


And refuse to let any blue creep in to surround my Pink.


No siree,.. 

Every day, 
we've decided to step out of our usual and try something new.  



Yesterday, we tried a new coffee shop.
It doesn't have to be big to be an adventure, you know.


Sometimes, it's a simple as going wherever the wind takes you. 


Anybody want to come along?  

*****
I'm going to try something else new this time around and not float off the face of the blog planet in so doing. Let's see how that plan works out....

I'll come along! "It doesn't have to be big to be an adventure..." So true.

I LOVE these photos Debbie! All that pink just makes me happy. And so does seeing that hot air balloon. (Someday I want to take a ride in one of those.)

Blessings!

Deb, thanks, you reminded me!! Have to scoot and look for photos. Love yours, and I am always up for a day adventure, even visiting a new coffee shop! xo

Sharon said...

You know that I would go on any adventure with you!

There are few things more wonderful in life than when our all-grown-up kids come home for a visit - right?! Enjoy your time with Miss Whimsy. I'm tickled pink for you!!

Debbie, these are BEAUTIFUL note cards!!! It doesn't hurt that the theme is pink, just about my favorite color ever. :) I can't you believe you captured a pic of that pink hot air balloon -- that is so neat! I also love your "introduction picture."

I'd love to come along on your adventure wherever the wind takes us. Enjoy your very special week with Miss Whimsy!

Hugs,

Denise

Sue said...

Seems like I was just looking at pictures of her college dorm room and she is going to be a senior? Time really does fly doesn't it? Enjoy your week ~ I know you will pack a lot of memories into that time.

Maryann said...

Enjoy your week with Miss Whimsy, time really does fly doesn't it?

Sonja said...

I just spent some days with our son and dil in central Texas. Your visit with Miss Whimsy reminds me of the fun we shared... I told them one night, 'this is so much fun it's kind of like being with family'!!

Have a perfect pink week!

All very pretty springy pics Debbie! Enjoy every minute with your daughter:@)

Debbie, Each shot is prettier than the next! I love how you were able to frame the hot air balloon in flowering branches. Beautiful.

Pretty pinks- especially those lovely china plates.

OH I love your cards - and your plans - and your pinks - and that pink hot air balloon!!!

Are you? Going up in that pink balloon? Oh now that will be great blog fodder! Enjoy your week of adventures. (Hope that your daughter has a fantastic summer and learns a lot doing her internship. It's a great opportunity I'm sure.)

Vee said...

Oh. Didn't say a thing about how great your notecards are! They are, you know.

Pink and maybe even a little lavender! I love these! Hugs!

These are beautiful note cards!! I want a ride in the pink balloon.

Lavender Cottage said...

Pink was a great theme to choose for your note cards and I just love the tablescape.
I'm always game for an adventure, enjoy yours!

Denise said...

These are great photos. I adore the one with the balloon. I love adventures, too. Maybe I'll come have coffee or ice cream with you two one afternoon. Nothing like pushing my way into mother-daughter time...

Gaby said...

Oh, your pictures! I am looking forward to hearing what you do with that whimsical week...

ellen b said...

Love sharing in your pink. Each photo invited me in. I would love to sit at that garden table!

Wow! These photos/notecards are gorgeous!! I love all the pretty pinks with that gorgeous blue sky in behind. Thanks so much for visiting and leaving your sweet comment. Enjoy the day! Blessings, Pamela

Laurie Ritchey said...

Wow! A pink hot air balloon! Your photos are beautiful. It almost looks like you photo shopped the hot air balloon into that photo. I am amazed that you were able to get a shot of a pink h.a.b. surrounded by pretty pink Dogwood blossoms. Have a good week with Miss Whimsy. laurie

Snap said...

I love your celebration of pink! Enjoy your time and adventures with Miss Whimsy.

Gayle said...

I love all things pink, and your blooms are so lovely. Don't fall off the blog planet, please.

kitty said...

Have a great week with Miss Whimsy and enjoy wherever the wind takes you!

Lorrie said...

Love the pinks. Enjoy wafting on the wind with Miss Whimsy, and plan a bit of that for when she leaves, too. It helps to have things to look forward to.

Alycia Nichols said...

Senior year?!??!?! Woo hoo!!! Almost there! I know you'd like for her to come home, but that internship will be great for her...she'll get a lot of needed experience that will help out as she goes job hunting. That's just terrific!

Have fun during your week with your almost-college-senior!!!!

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

Such pretty pinks...I know you miss your daughter...good that you are making the best of the time. Like the balloon too

Jan said...

Pink. Pretty. Perfection.

Love the balloon ~ great capture!

Mary said...

Love your pretty pinks! My sister graduated from Mercer! Enjoy your Miss Whimsy time :)

Janette's Sage/Simply Your Decor said...

This just make me smile "Pink" lady...have fun...it is priceless time!

Dayle @ A Collection of This and That said...

You outdid yourself. Love the pics and count me in on your adventure.

Jennie said...

For us less-than-adventurous types, a new coffee shop is a BIG deal. ;) I hope you soak up every minute you have this week. Furthermore, I hope your Mother's Day was splendid. I adored your sofa post more than words can say. By the way, if you *are* missing from the blog world, you'll be missed, but for good reason. We forgive you in advance (just because I like it when people let *me* off the hook).

Pat@BPM said...

I love the pinks!

Enjoy this extra special week,Debbie!

Crickit said...

Love the Pink! All of your photo's are beautiful! :) Enjoy your special time with your daughter...it goes so fast!

Kathleen said...

Hi Debbie, these photos are gorgeous as are the blooms in them. I seem to remember a photo of a Japanese Magnolia (I think that's what it was)on your blog somewhere that I really liked and I was half expecting to see it again today. Never mind though these flowers are every bit as pretty.

I think I'll take your advice and join the notecard party next time -thanks for recommending it to me.

Have a great time with your time with your daughter.

Manuela@A Cultivated Nest said...

I love all your photos Debbie! Especially the last one with the baloon!

Time flies! I'm happy she got an intership - those are important - but sad that you don't get to have her home all summer.

The Polka Dot Closet said...

yoohoo...Pink would be my choice! So sorry she can't spend the whole summer with you! Now, like you said no getting blue, be thankful for the week! Have fun

Carol

The Decorative Dreamer said...

I love the way you think...I think I shall seek to think pink too!

Congrats to your daughter for completing one more year and for the internship!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Oh the pink! The last image really makes for a "Calgon take me away" feeling. Superb~

The Quintessential Magpie said...

I'd love to come along, Debbie! And I love ALL of your pictures. My favorite is the one of the pink flowers with the pretty china and crystal in front. GORGEOUS.

This looks like a fun meme. I need to join you all some time.

I am back for the night, and there is still a HUGE mess everywhere, and I have almost no battery life left in this IPAD. I can't go online with it, but I can listen to music I have stored on it. I did that for the past two days... everything from hyms to Mo-twon to Rock "N Roll to Fred Astaire. He makes me happy!

XO,

Sheila

The Quintessential Magpie said...

P.S. In that whole Yak, I didn't tell you to have one with your daughter! I know you'll enjoy every second.

XO,

Sheila

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Okay, I shouldn't write late at night. LOL I came back to make sure I hadn't written something in my midnight mania, and I see that I told you to have "one" with your daughter. One what? How about a fun time! Sheesh! LOL ;-)

Carol OurSearsKitHome said...

Just caught up, Debbie. Wise and wonderful post, beautiful table scapes, great sofa/home story.
Have a blessed week!

Sharlotte said...

I LOVE your pics! They are outstanding! I love pink too, isn't it just the softest, prettiest color?
I forgot we have children the same age. Mine is also going to be a senior (time flies so quickly) and is also doing an internship. He was home for a very short week and today we took him to the airport for Germany (for the rest of the summer.) He was anxious, nervous and quite squeemish about flying, just like me. It was tough being tough for him when all I wanted to do was put my arms around him and say, "...don't go!!". He texted and called me about five times while waiting for the flight...and now I'm tracking him on KLM flight tracker, praying for a calm, safe flight. I have no makeup left, for I've been teary all day, missing him and feeling sorry for myself because my youngest is grown and the simple childhood days are gone...ugh...sometimes life is just really hard.
