Gratitude

Yesterday the family and I spent a few hours out at the air show! Just a few pics to share.  I guess I always get so emotional when I am around anything military related!  I feel an overwhelming sense of pride and gratitude!  I sometimes can not comprehend the unselfish sacrifices made to protect you and I and ours!  I know what it is like to welcome those loved ones home from an unsafe active duty trip!  I also now the overwhelming sense of relief when they are home safe!  So here are just a couple pics...so many people they are not all quality shots...hope you enjoy anyway!
the date is a day behind I just noticed on the pics...it was 9/11/11
ok...now the date is right..that is what I get for having a digital...I am planning on saving for a nicer camera
Like I said ..hard to get good shots with the crowds...I think this is the Black Hawk
I thought this was insane!  The man sitting at the booth looked at me funny as I snapped this...oh what we do with $...I guess if you have a dream!
This was probably my favorite stop!  I know it is simple...however it has kept my loved ones safe on the road.  There were pictures of a vehicle like this that had been hit by and IED ...it was eerie...however the entire team walked away.  Thankfully!  
And the main event was the presence of the Blue Angels!  Unfortunately we did not stay to see them.  They were later in the afternoon...and this pasty girl was already burnt!  
All afternoon the sounds of jets could be heard over our house.  
Thanks for stopping in!
Always Smiling, 
Sarah :)

Heros of September 11th

I know that we often take our freedoms for granted.  I wanted to take a moment to say that I will never forget how our country came together and will never forget the lives lost!  Thank you to all of those who have lost their lives protecting our freedom.  To those whom have lost since 9/11....
Thank you and God Bless!

My Passion for Red

RED...they say it is a color expressing passion ...or romance.  I agree with both in a living room it can be cozy and inviting...in a bedroom it can bring flares of romance with the decor on the softer side or spice with contemporary lines!
Recently have become obsessed (yes that is a favorite word) with the color red!  It will be a while until I give in to the temptations of this color..... as I seek out inspiration wanted to share a few pics with you....
Love the softness of this room...
 
Oh I sooo would love to find a piece like this to refinish.  I am drawn to the vintage or farm decor!  This would be perfect in a child's room.
Here I love the punch of red...with Americana flare.
The room is so cozy and inviting..
I am drawn to simplicity...and traditional pieces.

So what color inspires you?  Any remodel or decorating projects... 
Leave me a comment!  
I would love to have links to your inspiration....

 Always Smiling....
Sarah :)
