Returning Home~

Hi Friends
Hope you all had a great week.
We are back from a wonderful 10 day vacation
celebrating our anniversary
and I am looking forward to visiting and catching up with you soon.

Today I am back in the studio and so happy to be creating again.
I have lots of snaps to sort through and share from my travels.
Here are just a few to start.
Can you guess where we are?


We relaxed by wonderful water scapes. Taking time to enjoy nature.
The gardens in every direction were amazing!


We took in the sound of waterfalls at every turn. Walking along flowing streams that seemed to sing
their own songs.

We dreamed by the pretty Koi ponds. Mesmerized by their beautiful motions in the water.


We enjoyed the many displays of gorgeous flowers on long walks. Each and every space 
of land so beautifully designed.

It was a blessed time and a joy to relax and be thankful.
Another year, another anniversary and another memory maker!

*******

I'm so glad you stopped by today and thank you for visiting while I was gone and your kind comments.
I have missed you all and will be around to visit soon and catch up with everyone.

Have a wonderful day!

Hugs,
Celestina Marie
