Giving Thanks

I have so much to be thankful for: my wonderful husband, our families, our friends, the tasks and talents God has given us. This holiday we took a “mini retreat” in Leavenworth, WA, a lovely little German town in the Cascades. Another thing to be thankful for: God’s gift of our beautiful world.We awoke this morning to sun highlighting the snowy peaks of the Cascades, and fog clinging to the sides of the mountains.

The Enzian Inn, where we stayed. What a delightful place!One of the ornately-painted shops downtown. Brings back fond memories of visiting relatives in Germany, where my mother was born and raised.

And, one of my favorite things of the season: Christmas lights!

  1. We love Leavenworth as well. In fact we started a website from a tourist’s point of view. Hope to be back there in a couple weeks. The Enzian is our favorite place to stay.

  2. What a great idea for a tourists’ website. Enjoy your stay there! I want to get back more often!

  3. Thanks for the lovely photos. I especially enjoy those with views of the Cascades. After spending all summer traveling our Ozarks and taking pictures, I’m ready to settle in for a brief cold winter. All of which I’m also thankful.
