My New Year’s Eve Ritual and How Un-Inspired It Used to Feel

I can’t believe we are about to start another new year.  What do you all do for New Year’s eve?  Do you have any special traditions?  True confession- New Year’s Eve always depressed me and I have never really liked it.  I guess it is partly all the hype of it being about these big fabulous parties that you are supposed to ring the new year in with. That and the general melancholy of saying goodbye to another year (and sometimes the people that went with it).  It seems like there is so much pressure to ring in the new year in some fabulous way, yet we never did.  (The bottom of this post will have some inspiration, so bear with me.)    New Year’s as a Child Growing up, … Continue Reading

In Between Miracles-Poetry in Five

Inspiring Rainbows

Sorry I missed last week’s Five Minute Friday, but I am back today to see what inspiration I can bring you in just five minutes with the word prompt this week of IN BETWEEN.  When I heard the word(s) today I immediately started singing a fav. Dave Matthews Band song called The Space Between.  I have no idea how listening to that song inspired me to think of the phrase “In Between Miracles” but that is where I am going writing wise today and I don’t know if it will rhyme or not.  We shall see!  I am going to offer you a fresh perspective that is popping in my head though.  A different way of viewing life.   Go   In Between Miracles:   What if we lived as … Continue Reading

What Makes You Smile?

While I don't have any pictures of our first date, this is an earlier photo that shows Matt with the car he picked me up on on our first date.  Fond memories!  I loved that car and thought it was one of the coolest cars in town :)

Today (August 26) is my fiance’s birthday, so in honor of that I am writing a special post that is about the topic of things that make us smile, but also about my first date with Matt (the 2 are tied together).   Matt and I met at a party at a mutual acquaintance’s house.  It’s kind of funny because it wasn’t a place either one of us usually went to (in fact I think it was the first time either of us had gone), but we happened to both show up on the same night.  I won’t go in to the whole story in the post (too long) , but will just say that it was the typical guy sees girl across a semi crowded room and asks about … Continue Reading

Inspired by “Simple Truths” – Courage Doesn’t Always Roar

Need a little end of the week inspiration?  While most of my website pictures, art, and writing will be 100% original, once in awhile I will be sharing inspirational stuff I find on the web that I think may benefit you as well.   Years ago when I was trying to take life’s negatives and turn them in to positives, I set out to “collect” things that made me feel good.  I think part of the path to living inspired, is to surround yourself with things that lift you up, instead of make you feel down ( a reason why I don’t watch the news a lot haha).  I have found that what we surround ourselves with (in the way of music, what we read, what we watch, listen to, … Continue Reading

Seeing the World for the First Time

Just a funny picture I took to make you smile.  :)

If you read my very first 2 part Blog post (To Everything There is a Season), then you know about the birth of Fluffy’s 2 kittens.   (If you want to catch up and read this story in miracles click here)   Today the kittens are 3 weeks old.  The white kitten started to open her eyes at around the 10 day mark and the black one was lagging behind about a day or 2.  When they first started to open their eyes they were just little partially open slits.  Now they are wide open.  So cute!  They are growing so fast….     The interesting thing about kittens is that they are born both blind and deaf!  Their tiny little ears are folded in and of course their eyes are … Continue Reading
