Sunshine Days

Who cares about the clouds when we're together? Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather.

Hi Darlings!
So getting back to the swing of things has not happened just quite yet.  This past week, my father-in-law was rushed to the hospital for emergency heart surgery and has been in recovery ever since.  Naturally Albert and I left for Philly to be with his mom to help out in any way that we can  and visit with his father during this time.  Thankfully, he is doing very well and getting stronger each day.

  Below are some photos from a little day adventure that Albert and I went on several weeks back.  Since Albert was off this afternoon, we headed over to the capital city of Harrisburg to get a bite to eat, do a little thrifting, and take a mosey around the capitol building as it was quite a sunny and lovely day outside.

I do warn you before I go any further that this is a picture heavy post.  Our capitol building is such a pretty place both inside and out that I had to just give you a little tour around a bit of the outside of this strikingly beautiful structure.

Hope you enjoyed that little tour from my state's capitol building.  Wishing you a lovely week.  Be back soon!!


 Also...Thanks to Indi for passing on the "Your Amazing"  blogger award to me.  She is an as sweet as pie blogger friend and the most darling ray of sunshine.

I'm passing this one on to my hubster...because he truly has been the most amazing these last couple weeks (as always), showering me with tons of love and support as well as patience and just being a dear friend through my ups and downs.  Sorry for the cheese if you are still reading this.
