Today is Yours

It’s yours for the taking; yours for the making.

Forget your troubles.
Make your own sunshine.

Start the day the right way.
Make your own sunshine.

Say thanks.
Say I Love You.
Take the day & make it yours.



My Sanctuary

There’s this one place I love to escape to.

On the most amazing days that one could imagine, you’ll most definitely find me there.

When the day is unbearable and I’m angry at it all, there’s no place I’d rather be.

Even on a run of the mill, normal day there’s no doubt of where I’ll be.

When the words can’t be found, they are.

Tears will dry or tears I’ll cry.

Pictures painted. Dreams dreamt.

Storms calmed.

Anxiety ceased.

A simple escape. In mere seconds all is right in the world. All that is good shining brighter.

If you need me, this is where I’ll be.

A taste of bizarre and a pinky promise.


I was in the middle of writing a post on my phone when I decided I was going to save it for the night and continue tomorrow.  What’s one more night, right?

Before exiting out of the Android WP app, I decided to take a peek at my stats.  I don’t really check too often, as I’ve not been posting much this year and recently I’ve had a good chunk of readers unsubscribe all together.  (Leaving me with a twinge of disappointment but really I can’t blame anyone as I’ve not been writing!)

Anyways… so I look at my stats…. and my mouth drops.


Today I had the highest numbers of views EVER.  Higher than when I was posting every day even…. Huh?!?!  Wow.

And to make it even more perplexing it was a post written last October entitled:

Trick or Treat!!! Good things happen to those who wait!

(click the title if you’d like to take a read)

Not sure why that post was the gold mine today, but it brought more readers to my blog in one day than I’ve ever imagined strolling through.  There’s nothing in it that holds strong significance to the day today from what I wrote last year… I mean I did get some pretty awesome news the day I wrote that post… Some very much-needed awesome news after a stretch of stress and uncertainty.  But, I just don’t get why so many peeps made the trek to my blog today… to that post…

Don’t get me wrong… It’s not a bad post in my opinion; I mean it has pictures of 3 of the nephews in it so I mean, come on?  Of course I like it. BUT, in comparison to some of my other posts, I’m just plain out baffled at how or why this happened.

Nevertheless… I am grateful to all that stopped by today. So thanks!  And I sure hope you come back again.

Even more grateful to the friends who’ve stuck it out and have read from the very beginning… over TWO years now!  (That’s how bad I am this year… I didn’t even do a happy 2nd birthday blog post… 😦  )   I PROMISE… you won’t regret sticking with it.  I WILL BE BACK SOONER RATHER THAN LATER…

That’s a PROMISE !

If you don’t already subscribe, go on… do it already.


Loves to you my loves.



I’ve never had much of a green thumb, but….


I have to say I’m really loving my flowers today.


Maybe it was the way the sun was hitting them.


Maybe it’s that I noticed a little more of their individual details.


Maybe it’s just that I finally planted dahlias this year. (They are my favorite ya know!)

I’ve never had much of a green thumb, but…


I’m really…




My flowers today!

As always,

Melting My Heart

I was putzing around my apartment since my plans for the night fell through when my phone rang.

I answered, saying hello and didn’t hear anything at first.

So… I said hello again.

That’s when I heard a teeny tiny voice squeaking, “Thank You!”

It was my almost 2 year old nephew, P-Dub.

“Thank you for what, buddy?” I Responded.

“Daddy’s building my play house! Come over! Thank you Mae Mae!”


Quickly, I changed, hopped in my car to my sister’s house when i was greeted by an extremely excited tot running over to me.



I think it’s safe to say my littlest nephews like their birthday gift!

These nephews of mine have absolutely carved a niche into my heart…


Sure, they can be ornery … but come on, he looks soooooo innocent here.


Sure they can be cranky, but come on, he looks absolutely adorable here!


Sure they can be sassy, but come on, he’s fierce on the field and an all around fabulous kid.

These nephews of mine MELT MY HEART.

One teeny tiny voice saying two little words made my day.

Plain and simple.

LOVE YOU to the moon and back P, B & J! XOXO

As always,
