No Fears

Hello Friends!  It's been a long week of work, and I'm ready for the weekend!!  Friday is a day I look forward to every week because it's time to hop with my Unity FWF friends, and to check out the Unity Sale...

 
Last weekend was Amazing!  My brother was in town for a short visit with a good friend of ours, and while we were away for the weekend, I found out that I was invited to be part of the Unity Design Team!  I can't thank all of you enough for the sweetest wishes, I guess you can imagine I was over the moon!  I really look forward to work with such a wonderful group of talented ladies.

A little bit about the weekend trip - we went south to a little town called Denmark and the surrounding area. Yupe, I bet most people may not know, Denmark is a place south of Perth and it's beautiful.  Along the way, we stopped by a National Park, and my energetic brother made us climb up the hill to see the Balancing Rock and the Granite Skywalk.  The climb was exhausting for me, totally unfit!! But, I'm glad I did it - the view was lovely and the experience was unforgettable.  One needs a strong heart with no fear of heights to climb the 7m ladder up to the Granite Skywalk.

Here's the Phyllis Harris - I have No Fears card for this week, and I think that's kinda how I felt standing on top of the hill and marveling at the view...

And, of course I have to share some of the beautiful places we went to.  Hope you enjoy them.

I didn't take this pic, but this is the Granite Skywalk climb not far from the Balancing Rock

 There, I'm sure you'd love to visit Western Australia after seeing all these photos, huh.

Thanks for visiting me, have a wonderful Friday and weekend!!
