 Ok, so no card today, but I thought I would jump on the Instagram boat and share 2 photos with you!
This lovely young cheeky thing is Miss Bailee at her first skating comps a couple weekends ago. 

The second photo was taken two days later about 5pm heading back home after a quick trip up the road.  I think sometimes life moves so fast that we take the beauty for granted... I look out my window here at home and I see this mountain every day. Stunning!
