May you twinkle ever so brightly.

“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.” ―Oprah Winfrey   Source We made it through another year. This year sure was a roller coaster. I didn't blog as much as I would have liked to. The beginning of the year was pretty rough after losing my father. I wish I could go back and just give him the biggest hug. Of course with the amazing support of my family and friends, I've managed to pull through. I'm reconnecting with those I once lost contact with and I'm just trying to live and experience life to the fullest. This year may not have started as a good one, but I think there are many life lessons and I'm learning each day that life is truly short and we need to cherish the ones we love and those who love us back. Stop trying to earn love from those who push you away.  Love those who have been with you through ups and downs and have never left your side. May you live life to the fullest. Smile more. H

10 things to do to experience a happy, joyful, loving life.

Go for a walk. Explore some beautiful scenery and it never really hurts to get fresh air. Snuggle up with a good book. Hey maybe even listen to an audiobook. Read something inspiring, motivational, or even funny.  Hug someone. I hope you love hugs just as much as I do. I just love hugs from my family.  We can all use more hugs! Take a road trip. Again explore the beautiful scenery around you.  Take pictures of things you find fascinating, beautiful, and simple. You'll enjoy looking back on the photos you've taken. Call, or write a friend. I'm sure they will love hearing about all your new adventures and catching up is always so much fun. Find something you enjoy doing. Whether it's painting, knitting, creating pottery, or experimenting with a new recipe. Once you find out what it is take some time to enjoy that and maybe even turn it into a new hobby. Keep a journal. I've mentioned this before in a few other posts. It's a great way to release your t

Autumn here and there. Snapshots.

Happy Fall!  I've been enjoying some sweet autumn scents. What's your favorite autumn scent?

Summer.-You were good to us.

Summer, you have definitely treated us well. We enjoyed our time doing so much together.  Painting, water play, brewing sweet tea, building tents, bubble blowing, chalk doodles, cooking together, summer nights out on the porch, and lots of hugs and sweet kisses. We'll cherish these moments.  I'm truly happiest at home with my family. Thank you summer. -You've been so good to us! Tomorrow our oldest starts 1st grade.  We're so proud of all the hard work she's always doing. She's eager to learn more and she will be taking on some 2nd-grade work as well. We're so happy to see her grow and learn so much more. We'll continue to enjoy the upcoming weeks of summer and  make even more memories.  It's been an awesome break!  Until next time, so long summer break.
