#2017bestnine 
This was a good year for our family! Many wonderful memories and not much sadness. Much better year than last year. As we say goodbye to 2017 I pray 2018 will be a happy one for all but most of all for my kids!  Big changes this year as three will be/are in their own homes. I will be facing an empty nest and looking for what comes next. Happy New Year to all my friends!!

Just a few photos of the kitchen renovation. Almost done. You can't see the hole in the ceiling. #concretecountertops #subwaytilebacksplash #kitchenupdate #from1980sto2017 #welcometothiscentury #lovemynewkitchen
This little sweetheart visited for 11 days. Took her home yesterday and our house is lonely without her. #maisielou #granddog

Took a drive across the state today. While most of it was green with a smattering of yellow, there was a few crimson trees. Fall is coming! #colortour #fall2017

Happy National Dog Day from Khalee. #nationaldogday #khaleerae #chowbulldog
So worth my 3 hour drive. Calling on wineries. Absolutely gorgeous scenery. Wish I could do the wine tasting but business and driving calls! #michiganwineries #oldmissionpenninsula #bowersharborvineyards #puremichigan #wineries #wineofmichigan
Enjoying a carefree afternoon. She's had a tough week with a bad neighbor. She has to be supervised now for my peace of mind. #happydog #wishmyneighborwouldmove #khaleerae
My little slice of tranquility. #summerliving #puremichigan #saginawmi #rocksandflowers #menards
My "new" dry sink! Darcey's Resale furniture. I was leery of red and reasoned I could paint it but in the hour I've had it it's growing on me more and more. Thanks @zlyndasaginaw for convincing me to get it! #repurposedfurniture #darceys #goboldorgohome

Waited so long to upgrade. Now it all matches. First phase of kitchen improvement complete. Next up - lighting then onto countertops. #whirlpool #stainlessappliances
