"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"!

hiking fashion





















We just returned from our 4 days in the mountains.  This is something we do every 'weekend after Labor Day weekend'.  We join other families from our church fellowship along with the 'ones that got away' ~ several families who have moved away, yet remain part of our family.  On Friday a bunch of the ladies took to the trails donning our appropriate hiking attire!  I'm here to tell you that just as important as your choice of hiking shoes... is your personal style of hiking hair.  Can't you just tell a little something about each of us?


Blessings, Debbie

  1. How fun! I wish I could have joined you. I love the pictures you post of your state and can almost feel the air there. Have a beautiful Monday Debbie. We are hitting the books full force here this week so it's going to be busy.xx

  2. What a fun post (and wonderful way to spend the day after Labor Day)! Yes, hairstyle and footware DO "speak". It would be interesting to know how accurate the impressions one forms from these appearances actually are....

  6. I could go for a hike! My hair would have just been in a high pony though....nothing exciting. I love the photos of your gorgeous surroundings.

  13. So fun and so creative, Debbie! I'm so glad the shorter-haired blondie didn't get left out. :) Y'all must have been the most beautiful hikers out there, glowing with the love of Christ.

  14. Thanks for sharing your trip to the mountains - sounds and looks like you all had a fun time.
    Thanks for stopping by with your kind words. I really don't have it together - just taking it a day at a time.
    Hope you have a great week.

  15. I hope hair doesn't say too much about us or I'd be labeled a "Plain Jane" for sure!
    The area is beautiful for hiking. And it's so much more fun to have friends to enjoy it with!

  18. Actually, that's exactly what I was thinking as I looked through the pictures. You really can see the different personalities.

    I notice you didn't have anyone with a bedhead cowlick the size of Texas on the trail. Clearly, I was not invited.

    It looks really wonderful...just so you know.

  19. How fun! We LOVE hiking...but our kids are still quite young and can't always make it as far as we first think they can :) Sigh. How fun to go with church friends as a yearly event. Oh, and you all look lovely, by they way!

  20. Everyone looked great! I wish there were more local great places to hike around here!

  24. It's been a long time since I have done any serious hiking.

    I enjoyed the photographs. Your "hiking fashion" pictures were great! Everyone had their own unique style, and I think that's great! Who needs "carbon-copy" fashions anyway? :)

    I'm glad you enjoyed your trip. Looks like it would have been a lot of fun.

  25. I like all the hiking hair styles! I bet the hike was a lot of fun!

  26. I would definately be the one wearing the earrings :) Fun post, love to hike, especially as the weather turns cooler (soon I hope)

  27. Hiking hair - love it! But, really love the trees and landscapes you saw on your hike. Reminding me of some good times past hiking and camping with our fellowship friends - homeschoolers all - now all graduated and stepping into the world as young adults. How time flies . . .

    Joy!

  29. What a great idea for a post. What a splendid tradition...I want to start something like this...what a beautiful place. Thanks so much for showing it to me.

  30. You girls definitely were stylin'. What a great hiking trail.

  31. Debbie, even your hiking pictures are creative! I loved the fashion show...and I agree that those things are important. Who could enjoy a good hike knowing that her hair did not have that certain hiking chicness (is that a word?), or that her footwear was not the right combination of sporty and cute? ~smile~

    Your description of visits from Hillary was so heartwarming. I know just what you mean! Again...we are SO blessed!

    Should I write this on "the list"? We usually start school on the Monday after Labor Day too! What?!! Another thing we have in common?!! Don't most people begin school on the day after Labor Day...or sometime in August...or they school year round? Not us! We choose the exact same (somewhat odd) day to begin school. (Even if you are delayed this year...it's the usual plan. So weird.)

  32. I'm a french plaits and boots that support the ankle type of gal. Although secretly I'd wish my hair would go into ringlets. I love the idea of meeting up with a group of friends on a set day. Perfect way to catch up (no pun intended!) with old friends.

  33. What fun! You all are a bunch of very stylish ladies. I'm glad to see there were no high heels on the trail though ;o).

    Blessings!
