It Always Seems Impossible Until It’s Done

It Always Seems Impossible Until it's done

I can be a procrastinator. How about you? Sometimes when I think a task is just too big, too time consuming, or too confusing I procrastinate doing it. I tell myself it’s impossible, that I just can’t do it. The funny thing is that, while I’m procrastinating, I just can’t stop thinking about how I haven’t done […]

Learning To Dance In The Rain Quote

Learning To Dance In The Rain Quote

This learning to the dance in the rain quote should be applied to our lives earlier and rather than later. As you well know, life isn’t always full of sunshine and roses.

Travel Makes You Richer

Travel Makes You Richer

I’ve recently returned from a trip to Europe. My daughters and I visited 6 European countries in 12 days. We were in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Lichtenstein, Italy and England. It was a whirlwind holiday full of adventure and breathtaking sights. I haven’t fully recovered from jet lag, but I’m getting there. Coming home involved a 21 hour day of […]

Nature’s Music

Nature Quote

Have you had the opportunity to sit perfectly still while surrounded by nature? It’s a beautiful thing. As you still yourself you begin to hear nature’s music: the rustling of the leaves on the trees, the singing of the birds, and the chatter of insects. It’s not always easy to steal away and find a few moments to […]

Explore Dream Discover

Have you done any exploring, dreaming, or discovering this summer? I love this quote that Rebecca submitted this week. It really challenges me to move out of my comfort zone and try something new.

Sun Sea and Sand

SunSeaSand11x14

It seems to me like this summer is flying by. I can’t believe August is already here. Soon kids across the country will be preparing to go back to school and the lazy, hazy days of summer will be a fond memory we use to keep ourselves warm. I hope you have had, or soon […]

Happiness Is…

Happiness is a walk on the beach

How would you finish this sentence, ‘Happiness is… ?’ What is your happiness and where do you find it? One the happiest places for me is by the water. I wish our home was on the water but, unfortunately, waterfront property is a little costly in our area. Luckily for me my in-laws live by the water […]

Bloom Where You Are Planted

When I saw Rebecca’s word art submission Bloom, my thoughts turned to my country and how lucky I am to be living in a country where peace and safety […]
