hello everyone and happy thanksgiving!
it never ceases to amaze me that we all stop for one day each year to get away from the ‘i, me, mine’ mentality and reflect.
giving thanks and stepping outside ourselves is sentiment we’ll share regardless of age, race, religion. gratitude is a universal principal!
and it’s the start of another beautiful holiday season.
i hope yours is entertaining as well as relaxing. so many times the holdiay are full of stress.
maybe it’s because we all have such different lifestyles, beliefs, passions and opinions.
i’d like this year to change old stereotypes and roles and become the ambassadors of our familes, peacemakers, mediators, thought provokers and rational conversationalists (my family gets into heated debates).
personally, i’m just happy you came by to share a moment. have a fantastic, memorable holiday!
hi guys, happy memorial day weekend! it’s been weird weather around the country so i hope you’re getting a bit of well deserved sunshine. i’m making this long weekend one of complete RnR, turning off the tv, the phone, and even the lights. when it’s dark, enough is enough.
(yoga-before-sleep) of course, i did manage to get some pinterest time in which is where i got the shots to illustrate my fantasy weekend. reality may not be as pretty as this but it’s as much fun!
(2163427259) my alone time has given me a chance to swim,
(38702878020631302) catch up on reading,
(shooting-in-manual) learn about my camera,
(dressing-rooms) try a DIY
(tumblr) hit the beach and a do little yoga before sunset (better do that now)…
(delicious) eat well
and of course, nap!
well, i hope i haven’t put you to sleep. enjoy the weekend however you’re spending it and thank you to all the servicemen, women and vets who selflessly protect our freedom so that we can enjoy these beautiful days. we owe it to them to make the most of it so i’m off to catch those last hours of sunshine. have a great night!
hello everyone and happy sunday! i hope you’re having a great weekend. i’m sending love to all my friends, moms of people, moms of pets and my very own beautiful mama. i see it can be a thankless job and i’d like to say thanks here and now for your undying love and encouragement (and that’s for all moms). i don’t take a day for granted with you in my life, mom! have a beautiful day everyone!
hello all and happy weekend! claudia ii is just about to roll up and we’re heading off to mom and dad’s for an easter dinner. i just wanted to stop by and wish you a great day, whatever you’re doing!
good morning and happy valentine’s day! i hope it’s filled with magic everywhere you go.
and now, it’s our american duty to get out there and make and break a couple hearts
and since love conquers all it should be a great day.
we can’t buy it but we can give it out all day. you know you have my heart!
have fun with who ever you spend it with, especially yourself!
happy new year guys! it’s been a long season and this is the first time i’ve had to sit and just enjoy some downtime at my laptop. it really is the world at your fingertips isn’t it? well i got to cruising pinterest for a pretty pic and of course fell down the rabbit hole. guests are already arriving so i have to go but luckily pics speak volumes so here are some favorite shots. i hope this year holds wonderful things for you and that we remember to stop, breathe and enjoy every moment for as long as we’re here. happiest new year darling friends!
hi guys, happy saturday. it’s cold in nyc! my guy made a fire and it’s all i can do to leave the apartment. the happy reward is getting to see old friends all around town.
how is your holiday prep going? i hope it’s stress free. that’s my goal this year. i slept for a good long time when i got here. i think it’s been a really emotional time for all of us. and on top of it, life will just not stop! i find a nap such a relief sometimes.
when i finally came back to life i ended up on pinterest and realized i was thinking about my mom and her holiday table. she aways has a beautiful centerpiece. she and my dad are putting the house together. i know how much work they’re doing and enjoying it at that.
i believe simplicity is the key to a stress free holiday. so is appreciating the fleeting nature of it.
i’m glad to be here with you this year. please don’t forget to do something for yourself. and i highly recommend you take that nap if you need it!
good morning gang! it’s super silent at this hour, no one is up yet and i have time to myself. i think i slept 10 hours solid and am feeling almost totally refreshed finally. one more hour would really clinch it!
question: are you a dog person? it’s been a couple years since i lost my love, daisy (part kitten part pitbull), and i didn’t think i’d really find anyone as special so have put off pet ownership for awhile. but i’m suddenly tempted to adopt…
did you happen to see the comfort and therapy dogs that were on the news the other night? all they did was show up and everyone felt good.
i read this just now and even though it’s common knowledge, still something to think about whether for ourselves or a loved one: a dog often will connect with someone who may not be making a connection with other people. they just sort of gravitate to that child or adult sitting alone and can make that person smile.
well, have a great day everyone and if you can’t adopt, maybe just foster? let us all know!
