Ode to Susie

My dear friend East-Coast-Susie has requested to "see" where we live. What we see from our place. What a fun project this has been for me! I have gotten quite carried away, a very fun project! I am so inspired by looking around at all God has made and maintains, and echoing the thoughts from Julie's blog today, that God is so big, and His creation continues to sing His praises, throughout all the crisis in the world, in our homes, in our lives. Take a minute to read Julie's peace bringing thoughts.

Back to my nature show; I'll share with you, dear Susie, my home here on the West Coast. Most of the photos are taken within 60 miles of our home. You'll see some snippets of our family, of course- I tried to stay on track. (You know me and photos ;)

Enjoy!

It's unstoppably awesome out here! I have lived all over this country, all over Oregon, and been in every state of this blessed union and I have finally settled exactly where I'd want to vacation.

For one more glorious Central O shot, check out the header on my blog. My hubby did a 20 mile 2 day cross country ski from the Bachelor area, through to Sisters with some buddies and captured this panoramic when they where near the top.

It's within 60 miles of Amanda's house too!
