A little background on why I named this blog what I did.

I should probably do a little explaining on my title of this blog. First my last name is White. Therefore I live in the "White House." Living in the "White House" makes me the 1st Lady. My physical address says I live in Westwood Ca. (not the one by Los Angeles) but a little mountain town in Northeastern Ca. However I really live in a section out of Westwood known as Pinetown. With all the joking going on between my friends, I inevitably became Pinetowns 1st Lady living in the "White House." With all that said, this is just going to be a more personal blog of my life here in Westwood/Pinetown. My family and friends being a big part of it.
Originally I really wanted to take a picture a day for one year and post it on this blog. Perhaps like a photo diary. My life though is quite quiet and perhaps is not photo worthy for a picture a day but I plan on trying. So why not hop in and take a ride with me through little mountain town U.S.A. You may just love it as much as I do!

Willows in Westwood, Ca. 96137

Willows! There is something that has always fascinated me about their looks, especially this time of year. The pinks, reds, burgundy's, maroons! Red and green are my favorite colors so I suppose that I should not be that surprised with my love of their looks. Today again as I was walking, I spotted these. It is getting to be that I am worried whether I will be able to keep this up for an entire year (this blog) when it comes to a picture a day, but as far as I am concerned as long as there is something this pretty around the corner, I think I could keep it up for a lifetime!
At the bottom I am adding water effect to one of the pictures. I have waaaay to much fun with this site sometimes! LOL!!!





Yep, I love this water effect!

Wonderful pictures. We used to play in the willows as kids. There were so many of them along the creek bed. They made for great forts, and had a unique beauty all their own.

I love the sunlight shinning through the willows picture. Refreshing to the spirit and soul.

View Larger Map This is where I live. To the right of Westwood barely visible is the little section I live in called Pinetown. We have probably 150 to 200 people for our population. Westwood on the other hand is HUGE by comparison with a population of around 2000!
