Hello Thursday.

Hello Thursday.
For some reason this week feels like it's taking FOREVER.
That's probably because I have entered the NO-SLEEP zone. SWEET.
Today: NOT SURE YET. I can tell you what I WILL NOT BE DOING and that is moving anywhere with my usual lightning speed. I think I need a restful day away from sweets, malls, or Starbucks. AND ETSY. Geez.
There's laundry to finish and a new book club read to get going on AND I'm really hoping that today is the day that my body remembers just how TOTALLY awesome naps are.

Why Do You Blog?

I blog...

So family + friends can learn about my wonderful happenings + thoughts.

So I can share all the funny things they do and say.

So I can be a little geeky and waste a few more hours on my mac.

So I can just be me.

So I can inspire people.

So I can document life.

Fist Full Of Glitter.

Big things + little things + everything in between.
My life is full right now.
I am steady + sure of my gratitude for my many blessings.

Today, when it comes to gratitude, these things I am sure of:

I am sure that being grateful has little to do with things going perfectly + a lot to do with how I look at each moment.
I am sure that generosity + love abound + have made my little world a place of celebration of miracles.
I am sure that I have the choice to be happy + love my life.
I am sure that being grateful is not reliant on having lots of stuff.
I am sure that my life will never be the same again + I relish the chance for that to happen

Slow but sure - that’s how I feel today.

Attitude Of Gratitude.

Maya Angelou : The ship of my life may or may not be sailing on calm and amiable seas. The challenging days of my existence may or may not be bright and promising. Stormy or sunny days, glorious or lonely nights, I maintain an attitude of gratitude. If I insist on being pessimistic, there is always tomorrow. Today I am blessed.

16 Things.

Sixteen Things To Know More About Me...

1. I l[heart] skin products - especially face stuff.
2. I [heart]goofy word play - I would be very good at naming OPI nail colors.
3. I'm an introvert. I'm very comfortable speaking at big events, but I don't like big parties, crowds, or too much small talk with people I don't know.
I get very overwhelmed + anxious. I like small groups of good friends + family.
3. I [heart] twitter + always get excited when I receive text messges on my phone.
4. I get choked up reading a Starbucks to-go cup. Seriously, here is what it said on my cup today: I have faith. Faith in our wondrous capacity for hope and good, love and trust, healing and forgiveness. Faith in the blessing of our infinite ability to wonder, question, pray, feel, think and learn. I have faith. Faith in the infinite possibilities of the human spirit.
-James Brown, sportscaster NFL Sundays
5. My family + friends mean the world to me.
6. I absolutely [heart] wearing wildly expensive matching bra and panties sets every day + I'm a pajama whore.
7. I'm a Christian + my relationship with Jesus defines me. Even though life hasn't always
been easy, God has blessed me abundantly.
8. Overall I am a pretty even-keeled + patient person. That said, one of the things that really makes me lose control is computer or camera issues. Something is up with my camera right now + I am having trouble uploading photos to my computer. Grumble.
9. I absolutely [heart] documenting my life via my 365 Project. Very inspirational.
10. I [heart] cardigan sweaters.
11. I walk around the world feeling like our spirits are all intertwined, that we all matter, that we have so much to teach one another. Sometimes i feel overwhelmed by all the goodness, like i'm not sure where to put all the energy.
12. I am an overthinker/ anaylizer, I hate that about myself.
13. When I was younger I thought that the music that was played at Christmas time outside on the streets were the angels singing from heaven.
14. I dream of finding my niche in the crafting world + being able to expand my presence because this is one of my passions.
15. I hope I can help one person by telling my life story because this is how I bring purpose to hardships I have lived.
16. I dream of mending fences in neglected friendships because it hurts my heart when I think of what is lost.


Hi Thursday. Yesterday was pure terrific. My order from NFM arrived shortly after 9am - WHICH WAS TOTALLY UNEXPECTED and FLIPPIN' AMAZING! It is a beautiful day. The sun is shining. That seems to change EVERYTHING. People are smiling and I even heard a man whistling in the long line at Target. A repreive from SUPER COLD always feels SO GOOD - even if it's short and even if you know there's still plenty of cold weather left. I also tried a Berry Chai Infusion from Starbucks and it was UNEXPECTED DELICIOUS.

Hello Tuesday.

I'm jumping into Tuesday with both feet. I love the feel of my hectic routine again, It tends to take my mind off of things that don't need to be thought about. I'm just thinking to myself, this too shall pass...

Breath In, Breath Out.

Get It+Got It= Good.

I was just reflecting about spending time with my family during the holiday. I sure was a wonderful time. I have a family that is loving + caring! Gotta love it! Here's a great quote:
"You don't know GOD is all you need until GOD is all you got"
plain + simple.
We all know this..we just forget to remember things like this sometimes...
We all need a little LOVE and a LOTTA God..(well, we need a lot of LOVE...but we need even more GOD)
Hey..that sounds really good...
Gotta Lotta God.

And if you don't have it, you should try make things much better! So Getta Lotta God.

Just Be.

be sweet.
be sunny.
be loved.
be you.
be silly.
be rad.
be close.

Good Talk.

Here's to life.
And to twists & turns.
And anticipation.
And changes.
And possibility.
And being open.
