Finally got around to it

When Mister C and I were trying to stage our house in Nebraska for sale, I used some calendars of tropical scenes. I took out seven different pages and put them in black frames that I got from Target and hung them up. They looked really good for a staged house. Not that I think they helped sell my house, but at least I didn't have strangers staring at pictures of my family (I know, how stupid, I write a blog, come on in!)

When we moved into our home in Sunshineville, I hung up those same framed calendar pages on the walls in my dining room and family room. It's not that I loved the pictures, I just wanted to get the pictures up off the floor before they got broken.

For the past few months I have been thinking that I should really go ahead and print out the photos I wanted to put in there instead, but I never got around to it. The few times I did try just happened to be times when Mister C, for whatever reason, had me blocked from the photos. I did put two of Master J's school photos up about a month ago.

Today, I finally got around to printing out three pictures and putting them in the frames and hanging them back on the wall. I am so excited. Not because they are necessarily fantastic pictures. More because they are photos of places one or both of us has been and either we or someone we love took the photo. They are a reminder of what is important to us, not just pretty pictures of places we'd like to go.

So, for your viewing pleasure, I have included the three photos.

This is Mister C hiking down into the Grand Canyon on the Boucher Trail. I believe our good friend D-Man took this.

This is a sea arch off the coast of Hawaii. I had to hang over the edge of the rock wall that's supposed to keep you from falling in the ocean. I am horribly afraid of heights.

Mister C took this photo of Havasu Falls on one of his many excursions down into the Grand Canyon.
