Close-Up

Ready for Day 5 of Susannah Conway’s August Break? Today, our prompt is “Close-Up” and I just happen to have these photos of a little squirrel eating some snacks out on our back deck. He’s a hungry little guy – in need of a manicure!  He’s really enjoying that piece of tortilla…and, suprisingly, he’s not being bothered […] Read more…

Love

Circles

Here we are with Day 2 of  Susannah Conway’s August Break 2013! Today’s theme “Circles” fits perfectly with these photos I recently took of Pops in his Scout Patch jacket. How cute is he in this jacket his mom made for him when he was a young scout? She sewed all the patches on herself! He […] Read more…

August Break

Sooooooo…I’m sure you’ve noticed I’ve been a tad bit of a blog slacker lately. Trust me, this is not due to having nothing to say! It’s truly due to having no time to write!! Since it is Summertime, I guess this can be expected. (excuses, excuses, I know) To try to keep things hopping and […] Read more…

Happy New Year!!

I’m hoping that everyone’s new year as been a very HAPPY one so far!! I’m (kinda) ready to get back into the swing of things – I will definitely admit this little break I’ve taken has felt very good and rejuvenating. I’m thinking this blog might be headed in a whole bunch of new directions […] Read more…

A quick check-in… Yes, our Florida trip was AMAZING and I have tons of photos to go through still and to share: Now we’re getting ready to leave in […] Read more…

Halloween Picture Fun

In case you’ve missed my Facebook obsession with using PicMonkey to create spooky Halloween photos, I thought I’d share them here. I seriously could spend all day creating these – well, if I had all day. But, you don’t need all day because you can create them quickly too! Even Bubba got in on the […] Read more…

Movie Review “Won’t Back Down”

The other night I attended a screening for the new movie “Won’t Back Down” starring Maggie Gyllenhaal, Viola Davis, Holly Hunter and Rosie Perez. First, who just doesn’t love Maggie Gyllenhaal?? She’s just fabulous and, as you can expect, with actresses like Maggie, Viola and Holly the acting in this movie is simply top notch. […] Read more…

Overcoming Fear

How do you overcome your fears the first time you do something or on the first day of a new experience? This is the current “Life Well Lived” Getting Happy question? F.E.A.R. Even saying the word evokes an emotion in me. There have definitely been times in my life where I feel I’ve lived a […] Read more…

Creating Happiness in 2012

To start 2012 this question has come up on the BlogHer Life Well Lived Panel: How do you plan to create happiness for yourself in 2012?

How cool is this? I’ve written my first book review. It’s through BlogHer and for the fiction novel “Faithful Place” by Tana French.

BlogHer Sponsor Ella’s Kitchen

There were so very many sponsors at the BlogHer11 expo. So many, that I didn’t even make it through the whole expo. I ran out of time and to be honest, energy. Apparently, the amount of “goodies” or swag you could leave with was monumental. I left with more than enough and in fact, too […] Read more…

Being a BlogHer11 Vegan

I express this with JOY!!!! It was absolutely not an issue at all being a vegan at BlogHer11. I was a bit concerned at first, wondering if I would find something in the provided meals and snacks that I could consume. Concerned until I saw: These signs brought me the biggest sense of relief. They […] Read more…

BlogHer, Jimmy Dean and Me

Have you been tortured long enough wondering what I was doing at a Jimmy Dean session during BlogHer11? In all honesty, I am sad to admit that I almost didn’t attend simply because they were the sponsor of the session. I don’t want to be that sort of person or that sort of vegan. I […] Read more…
