As I sat pondering my progress in life one night I was struck with the thought of time…the thought that “time waits for no one”… the thought that if we don’t go for it, we may never… but also the thought that we spend so much time trying to think of what to do next that we miss what may be happening to us right in that very moment. Time is something that is constantly moving forward, though we may “take a moment to pause”, that actually that paused moment is still a moving moment, it is still taking us…

With the thought of bananas – tagging my Power Food post from earlier this week – Power Food – Bananas  – this week’s #tbt post is my Grandma’s Banana Bread Recipe – I posted it publicly about 2 years ago after much debate about letting this cat out of the bag, but over the last several years I’ve learned that we’re here to share our joy with others (I’m awfully dramatic about banana bread aren’t I!) Two years and two months ago I wrote… There aren’t many things better to me than my Grandma Bell’s Banana Bread…and today was a good…

         I’m sitting here thinking about what I want to write…this weekend had it’s frustrations for sure – like that darn Windows 10 update I’ve been trying to avoid on my laptop – that pretty much stalled any computer work I was going to catch up during the day – but it did give me time to work on some other things that have been lingering on my to-do list for quite some time now – like updating my Poshmark closet (if you haven’t yet, you should def check this app out – it’s an online marketplace where you…

I have the power to choose. I have the power to choose to have positive people in my life. I have the power to choose to be happy. I have the power to choose my battles. I have the power to choose to share love, joy, and hope. I have the power to choose to be free. I have the power.

A lovely spring day in April…snowing on a Saturday morning. I fell asleep last night to a disbelief that the snow would be coming. But this morning I awoke to a silence and certain gentleness in air. I climbed out of bed to let my pup out to the yard to potty and there it was, plump white snowflakes falling before me. The yard blanketed with the white fluff. I could flinch knowing that I have that inner desire for bright, warm, sunny days but the thought climbed into my mind that how often do we get to see snow…

So here it is…art journal 2. I’m finding myself embracing words in my art journal…sketching out what I’m thinking in letter form (does that even make sense?), trying out my artsy lettering skills (which I’m working on growing in that field!). I have to share two things – 1. I went to a close friend’s baby shower the other weekend and saw another close friend that I haven’t seen in awhile. She shared with me that my initial Art Journal post had inspired her to start her own art journal, it made my heart sing, that’s why I blog, with…

          About 5pm my Friday night plans changed…my plans were to curl up with my son and watch a movie but then I get a text asking if he can go to a friend’s house for the night…those teenage years are coming…guess that’s the road I’m going to have to cross whether I’m ready or not, the time in a boy’s life when hanging out with mom just isn’t as cool…so I grabbed that not-so-healthy fast food salad and fries and headed home to feed the animals, put on my sweats and have been spending the night coloring. It’s funny…

I can’t say I’ve ever left Color Me Mine with a project I didn’t like. It’s fun walking through the house and seeing the knick-knacks I’ve created from our trips to paint at Color Me Mine…  My ring holder, my elephant piggy bank….. Today’s throwback is a post I wrote 2 years ago after a Mommy and Son trip to Color Me Mine…will need to get back soon to make a new creation! This post is featuring my “splotch” mug. It was fun just to play with the different colors and just do whatever, no rhyme or reason to this…
