B Is For Beautiful

Today I will dedicate the letter B to all things I find to be beautiful.
First I will show you some of the flowers I have seen and had the pleasure of photographing.

From my mother-in-law's garden.

From my mother's garden. Notice the bee buzzing around?

From an Easter bouquet the hubby got me last year.
How about some beautiful skies before my eyes...

God was smiling on us this day!

Even on the verge on a storm, it is amazing to see!

How about beauty in a bead of water?

What about a building or landmark if you prefer. The CN Tower used to be the largest tower in the world. Now it's second to the Buraj al Arab in Dubai.

This is my niece Bella, short for Isabella. Bella is also Italian for Beautiful. Which she is, cute as a button!

Now you know I saved the best for last. My babies! My boy, Kris, you met him in yesterday's post. Brianna is my youngest, and now a teen too!

~All opinions are my own. All photos are mine.~

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.

So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
