First of all, I want to thank everyone for all the comments left about Richie and our troops! I appreciate each and every one and I know he does too. And as always, comments from both bloggers and non-bloggers are welcomed! I appreciate the kind words! Thanks so much!
On another note....I'm very close to my 100th post. It doesn't seem possible that there could have been that many since May, but I guess time flies when you're having fun, right? Anyway, just to celebrate, I have a little giveaway up my sleeve, so stay tuned and check back real soon! :)
Now about the movie worth seeing.....We went this past Wednesday to see Fireproof. The movie is based on a firefighter (Kirk Cameron) who although he is a hero and accomplished in his occupation and the community, lacks those very qualities at home in his marriage. I don't find a movie very often these days that would be worthy for me to post on my blog, but I feel like this one is! It's a great movie for not only husbands and wives, but in my opinion, for anyone that has any thoughts of one day being married. Joy saw this movie with us and we even talked about it with her (at her own level) afterwards. It's a movie we've also encouraged Colt, our 19 year old son, to see as well.
My friend, Tammy over at Lattes and Lollypops, wrote an excellent review on it this past Monday and I couldn't have said anything any better than what she said. Click on over and read a little more about the core of the movie.
You really owe it to yourself, your spouse and even your family to see this movie. Make a date with your husband to see this or even take your family with you. I won't promise that you won't shed a few tears (although you'll laugh too), but I believe you WILL walk away from it uplifted, taking a good look at your marriage, and feeling empowered to do the right thing. But don't take my word for it...Check it out yourself! Go see Fireproof! :)
And I also wanted to show you today a favorite spot of ours that's on the way to my brother and sister-in-law's house. Jason pulled over so I could get a picture this time. We always pass it before we realize and promise ourselves that we'll stop next time. Well, this time we stopped, pulled over, backed up, and with my super duper lens, I did get some shots. Like some of you have said, I did feel a little wierd taking pictures of someone's home, especially standing on the side of a highway with people passing by, but the house sits back way off the road, so I don't think I was invading anyone's privacy. (So I guess I really didn't feel wierd enough about it to NOT do it, did I?) lol!
Anyway, here's some of my favorite shots. I love the way it's situated near the water and the view surrounding the cabin. (The only thing that would make it even more perfect to me would be mountains in the horizon.)
I can just imagine living there in that cozy spot. It also makes me wonder what kind of family does live there and what the cabin looks like inside. I can imagine sitting out there on the porch taking it easy watching kids play or just reading or observing nature...or even out there in a little canoe on the water.
There's a couple of more places on the way to Alabama that I like as well and I missed them this time...maybe I'll be lucky enough next time to get shots of those too. As a matter of fact, one day I'll just have to do a whole post of some of my favorite houses or spots to share with you all!
But don't you agree that this is a gorgeous spot?
