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!


Mellow Yellow Mondays and real flowers, Wow!

This is going to sound a bit crazy, but I have been called worse! I have been waiting for the week where I could post a post on Mellow Yellow Mondays that were flowers, that were on that date. You see, where I live there have been no flowers yet showing their beauty. It has still been to cold and crappy. Day before yesterday I spotted these little flowers starting out. I had decided right then, that I was going to come back to this place today and see if all was still well and I could not only post some Yellow for Mellow Yellow Monday but that they would be flowers. I was lucky. Today the sun is shining bright yet the temperature here in the northern mountains of Ca. has not been above 38 degrees today. I still walked down the street to a neighbors yard and these little guys are still holding on. The fact that they are still here today is giving me some hope that spring may very well actually start to happen here where I live. Sooo many of you have been showing beautiful flowers now for a bit on Mellow Yellow Monday.I was jealous. But today! I get too!
And it feels good! LOL!!!

It seems like forever since I have seen flowers in person!

Howdy Hi!
I would love to hear what you have to say. Why not leave me a comment?

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!
