~ ♥ A Walk Through My Town ♥ ~

Won't you come on a little stroll with me through my town? This is just a small view of some of the things that make me smile! I live in the beautiful and quaint little "Dutch" town  of Lynden, Washington. Some call it "Little Holland!" I call it "home!"

This is Front Street. The main entrance to town. My Granfather planted these trees many, many years ago. They are called "Pin Oaks!" I think this is what Pinochio must have been made from!

Our landmark! The windmill at the Dutch Villiage.

And . . . now some of my favorite cottages!

Trish . . . the owner of this cute cottage has her own blog. Why don't you stop in and take a look around!

Tami . . . the owner of this wonderful home has her own blog. Why don't you go and take a peek!

And one of my favorite old barns! We are a community of dairy farms and berry fields!

The cherry blossom entrance to one of my favorite old homes.

This is the Stremler Home. Stately and Gorgeous! I grew up just across the street from this beauty!

and . . . back down the pretty lane of trees as we end this stroll through "my town!"

Hope you enjoyed your visit! I know I enjoyed sharing!

~♥~ Heartfelt Words ~♥~

"This is my wish for you. Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, love to complete your life."
♥ ♥ ♥
I read these beautiful words today and wanted to share them with all of you. Even though I am not the author of these words, nor do I know who the author is, I share them from my heart.
