Don't strain your eyes please, this is what the sign says......Life is not measured by the breaths you take but the moments that take your breath away.
Isn't this a beautiful saying.  I had been looking for something to go under my big clock.  I saw this at FRENCH BLEU VINTAGE and knew it was what I wanted.
Today is my daughter's anniversary.  They were married atop a mountain in Estes Park overlooking the Continental Divide.  The wedding was in a tiny chapel that only held 30 people.  They did a butterfly release before heading down the mountain to the reception inside a ranch.  This was one of those breath taking moments.  My son's anniversary is this week as well.  They got married at the bride's home......another breath taking moment.  Flowers everywhere and where the guests sat under a beautiful white tent.
My son and his girls and their Mama are headed home today from
New Jersey.  They have been at the beach.  They got to see a whale that was close to shore.  Unbelievable, wouldn't you say?   I am so glad they got to experience that.  My son said people were flocking to the beach to see the whale. 
So on this first day of summer as some of us cherish the
A/C, enjoy those "moments" that take your breath away.

Oh I love that saying Debby. And what a beautiful addition to your lovely clock. :)

I've never heard of releasing butterflies. Just the thought of that takes my breath away. My mom LOVED butterflies. I want to look into that. She would love that. :)
