Happy 19th Anniversary

Anniversary Collage' Card

Inspiration Photograph

Today is our 19th Anniversary.  Happy Anniversary Honey.   Love, Kris

~~Please feel free to save and use this vintage picture.~~ 

Baby Deer!

I just couldn't resist posting these pictures of our baby deer.  We have a doe and one fawn and another doe and twin fawns that show up regularly in our yard. These are the twins.  Mom was nowhere to be seen but I'm sure she's close by.  I took these pictures off our front porch and in the front yard.

It's hard to tell from the pictures but these are very little fawns.  Brand new babies!
