Lasting Memories First 2015 Challenge with a Blog Hop!! "Life's Simple Pleasures"


Hello and welcome to our very first challenge for 2015 at Lasting Memories! We're celebrating the new year and new Design Team with a blog hop. Super fun right?! If you're just starting the hop, be sure to start at Lasting Memories so you don't miss anyone - if you're last stop was Kimberly then you're on the right track!

Our challenge theme this entire month is "Life's Moments" and our first challenge is "Life's Simple Pleasures" .. we want to know what one of your simple pleasure's in life is. Chocolate? Coffee? Adorable children, pets or grandchildren?? SO many things to consider and we're excited to see what you create! What's my Simple Pleasure??? Here, let me show you!




This is from a trip that our family took over a long weekend last February with the rest of our very large family.  26 people in all.  So the little blip of time that my Hubby and I got to spend outside both during and after a big Snow Storm that had hit, was caught on camera.  :)  Love it when that happens.  We don't see snow super often where we live, so seeing it in these huge amounts last winter was quite fun.  It's the simple pleasures that make me happy.

Your next stop is our beloved Blog Owner, Karen!!!... and when you're all done visiting the new Design Team, we really hope you'll have time to join the fun! All our challenges run for the entire month, so you have time to play! Thanks for stopping by today!
