This is from the early 90's while we were vacationing at black butte ranch. we started going here as a family in 1981, our family would drive from idaho, ca, wa & portland to spend a week together under the ponderosa pines. it was our gathering place. usually, it was the 3rd week in july & my mom's birthday fell on that week. many of her b-day's were celebrated right here at one of her most favorite places on earth. i felt so incredibly blessed to have celebrated my 50th here back in november and to be fortunate enough to keep a family july tradition here for 2018. today, i celebrate my mama's 80th birthday & honor her memory in our special place...black butte ranch✨🌞✨ happy 80th b-day, mama nancy, i love & miss you everyday! 🎉🎊🎉🎂🎈 ☀️🌲☀️🌲☀️ #happybirthday #ilovemymom #inhonorof #missingyou #alwaysremember #happy80th #blackbutteranch #ourhappyplace #vacation #sistersoregon #celebrationoflife #legacy #family#makingmemories ❤️
You should always remember the beautiful moments in life. do not let the sad ones win.
wir kennen es alle: wir beschweren uns wie schwer wir es doch im leben haben oder nörgeln aufgrund eines misslungenen tages. dabei vergessen wir die tage die gut waren, vergessen die momente in denen wir gesund waren. und wenn wir dann von unserer geschichte erzählen, haben wir den schmerzhaften ereignissen viel mehr platz geboten als denen die unser leben wirklich bereichert haben. warum? 📖
Fairs. family. friends & fun. spent the past week making great memories with family. so glad that i got the opportunity to be there to support my nephew jake in his first animal project! #boots#barns#familyfun#makingmemories
