:: Good Words ::

"We are mosaics - pieces of light, love, history, stars - glued together with magic and music and words."

- Anita Krishan


:: Everydayness ::

It's so easy to get bogged down in the routine of our everydayness, living day to day by habit more than anything else, and then finding yourself drifting, daydreaming, never really being present. But this life, this world, the opportunities are endless, and all you have to do is step outside of your comfort zone and there it is: the endless possibilities that every single day can bring you. There is still so very much for you to do, so many versions of yourself you still can be. Go after it. Always.


:: About the fourth of July ::

This year it occurred on a Wednesday. Which is really hard to enjoy in the middle of the week when most people are working both the day before, and, the day after. Too difficult for me to manage this year. I celebrated the Fourth of July both the weekend before AND, the weekend after. No other way to do it. And, I worked on Wednesday the fourth. I know, but I did. I had no plans, and I also earned extra money for working on a holiday. It was a win-win. But really, the fourth needs to inch much closer to Friday...really..


:: Fourth of July ::

As a patriotic and grateful woman, I honor ever waving flag, every hand-covered heart, every deeply felt prayer, all asking God to bless this great nation we call America.

It's a declaration of sincere thanks to all of those who have served for this glorious nation, for they have shown us by example what it truly means to belong to the land of the free... and the home of the brave.

"Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God"

Philippians 1:3


:: Pure Fantasy ::

Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.

- Dr Seuss


:: My Birthday Month: Day 30

June 30- Today, lastly, my special message for you:

Try to take in all of the beauty that surrounds you everyday. Sit quietly during your day and watch as the world spins around you, the leaves, the glorious breezes, rain, early morning fog, the smiles of complete strangers, sunshine, flowers and water, allow all of this to bring you inspiration and sheer joy. Enjoy the process of slowing down just long enough to really see and feel all of this beauty is what living life is really and truly all about. And that folks is how I enjoyed my birthday month. Thank you so much for sharing it with me.


:: My Birthday Month: Day 29

June 28- Reliving those glorious childhood summer days!

Ride your bike, swing for a while when you visit the park, create a chalk masterpiece on your driveway, walk through the puddles after a good rain, pick flowers and bring them into your home to enjoy for days, catch fireflies with the kids, blow bubbles {kids and dogs alike love this!}, eat fresh fruits and veggies, shop at the farmers market for groceries, go swimming, have a water balloon fight,  eat a snow cone or a gourmet popsicle, take a joy ride blaring your favorite summer song, go horseback riding through the trails, climb a tree, lie in the grass and watch the clouds go by, break out that hula hoop {it's great exercise}, spend the day at the beach, make a sandcastle, collect shells, visit the zoo, go to a theme park, explore a new town, create a nature mandala, and lastly, and my all time favorite: go out for some delicious ice cream at a different place every Sunday!
