A is for Angels and Ahhh, there you are

Welcome to the 2015 A to Z Challenge. I'll be sharing my favorite things/things I love through photos.

A is for Angels... as in the Blue Angels

They are the flight demonstration squadron for the US Navy. 
I took this photo on our balcony and had goose-bumps as they soared by.
To learn more about the Blue Angels, you can go HERE.

It's also the first Wednesday of the month, which means it's Insecure Writer's Support Group time, hosted by Alex J. Cavanaugh! 

A is for Ahhh, there you are

Since I'm doing the A to Z Challenge, I need to stick to an A theme for the IWSG, so I chose Ahhh, there you are, when referring to my inspiration for a WIP I put aside several months ago. I'd originally got the idea for it two years ago, on a pier while on vaca with my family. After awhile, it fizzled, and I just couldn't make any sense of what the heck I was doing with that WIP. Well, on vaca this year, back at that pier, I found it... the inspiration I needed to get on track. It was totally unexpected, but I'm so grateful that it came back to me.

That pier is in the above photo as well.

IWSG is a place to share/write/vent/blog about writing or whatever we feel the need to. Then, hop around and visit other writers, offering support, help, ideas, and so on. It's an amazing group!
There's also the IWSG website HERE that has loads of helpful info.


  1. I would love to see the Blue Angels fly over my head. That's gotta be amazing to see. Congrats on getting refocused on your sidelined WIP. I like the idea of writing a book, but I just don't have it in me to go all the way. Blogging gives me the creative outlet I need for now, but who knows, maybe one day I'll cave and give it a try. That is if I don't forget because by said time I would have lost my mind. lol Great to meet you through the #AprilA2Z challenge!

  2. We have the Red Arrows in the UK, and no matter how many times I see them, they always take my breath away.

    I've recently found inspiration to work on an old WIP myself, it was a definite Aaah moment :-)

  5. Then Blue Angels put on a Fourth of July show over my elementary school way back in the '60s. It was absolutely amazing. That is a beautiful photo and a beautiful memory.

  6. I love watching the Blue Angels fly. I have a pic of my daughter when we went to the air show years ago. She's about 3 and had her hands clamped over her ears and has the most annoyed expression on her face. It's too funny. She appreciates them now since she's aged a few years. :)

  7. Go Blue Angels!! My son joined the Navy a year ago!! So proud and excited!
    Great post!
