Some Americana

Today I am thinking of all of the wonderful men and women who have served this great country
so that I can enjoy my freedom. My husband was in the army and my father was in the marines,
so the veterans have an extra special place in my heart. My son, Luke was born in a military hospital,
Fort Belvoir, Va.
Wishing everyone a wonderful and safe holiday, we are having a family cookout with my children and
grandchildren. Take time to think about what today really means and  be thankful that we live in
the wonderful USA.
I will share a few pictures of some of my Americana things,

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
