Autumn - A Friend Is...

Last week Sandy took out our electric for several day. I'm so grateful to God that the only damage to our home was the loss of our refrigerated food. I also feel so blessed to have a wonderful friend who invited us to stay with her until our electric was restored. We are home, things are mostly back to normal, and here I am linking up to my favorite party, Pink Saturday. Click here to visit Beverly's Pink Saturday party. 
Before you leave to visit Beverly I want to mention another friend some of you may know, it's June from Dezinaworld. June has a new blog and she is trying to find her old blog friends and make some new ones as well. Please click here to  find her new blog, June's Joy. I love this quote June on her new blog post.
Below are a few photos I took before the storm.

Happy Autumn!

  9. Love your autumn photos with the horses! And so glad you weathered the storm okay. My son is in N.J. and lost lots of trees and no power for 8 days but they are fine. We go to visit them this week. HPS

  10. Hello Linda, I am sorry you had to go through that bad storm. I agree, if all you lost is food, you were lucky. So many lost homes and loved ones as well. Our friends mean so much when there is a need. You are blessed.

    Your pre-storm photos are wonderful. Do you have horses? I love those pics.
    Blessings, Jeanne
