Happy Birthday in Heaven

Stopped in to wish my Mom a Happy 89th Birthday today and it made me smile when I saw her favorite sunflowers blooming right nearby! And when I returned home to find a Massachusetts State Police shirt had arrived from her home state, I decided it was a very special Heavenly Birthday for my Mom!!! #happybirthdayinheaven #sunflowersformymom #MassachusettsStatePolice #34yearstoolong

Great day of hiking

What an amazing hike today here in Sitka. We were so blessed to start our hike at the harbor, continue along the river and up into the rainforest! A few trails were closed because of recent bear activity, but there was spectacular scenery everywhere we look!! Loved being in the cool, wet weather! #sitkaalaska #indianrivertrail #sitkaharbor #rainforest #americathebeautiful #lovetheweather #spectacularviews

Mt Spokane Summit

Up at daybreak to beat the heat for an amazing hike up to the summit of Mt Spokane! Even came across some ripe huckleberries to munch on! It is so therapeutic to head to the mountains to get away from the stress of daily life! #lovethemountains #mtspokane #stressrelief #challengeyourself #yummyhuckleberries

Corporal Erin Blessing

What a pleasure to meet up with my good friend Corporal Erin Blessing from the Spokane Police Department to give her the Protecting The Blue challenge coin I had been entrusted to pass on to a deserving law enforcement officer! Corporal Blessing is the one who introduced me to Inland Northwest Honor Flight and we have travelled on many trips together as Guardians with our military veterans to Washington DC! Be Safe Corporal Blessing and thank you for your many years of service to our beautiful city! #spokanepolicedepartment #protectingtheblue #backtheblue #staysafe #heroinblue #supportlawenforcement #behindthebadgefoundation
