I'm happy to share some of my favorite photos from the month, and hope you enjoy them.
I hosted a new co-worker for 2 days, and while she was here, we made a quick stop in to the Jefferson Hotel in downtown Richmond. This historic building was designed by Thomas Jefferson, and is steeped in elegance and classic touches. It's a must-see for people who come to visit me!

Anyone who's checked out my favorite photos each month knows I usually include at least one picture of the dogs. This time, they cooperated, and let me snap a picture of them both on my bed. Leia is the b&w cutie on the left, Pica is the brown hound on the right.
Definitely, a highlight of August was the total Solar Eclipse. My son and I watched it with the special glasses, and I compiled this view from the shots I got. The photo on the bottom shows the shadows that the trees made on the driveway -- That was so unique! I loved the eclipse way more than I thought I would, but it was really special!
These next two photos show the pretty flowers and walkway my son put together. He's got a great eye for design and made this look easy! If I tried to do something like this, it would look so thrown together. But I just love how this turned out and I really appreciate having my son home!
So that's it for my photos this time around! Thanks for posting a rating for me, if we're partners on Swap-bot. I'd love to see your swap too, if you care to share. I hope you have a wonderful September.
