Unexpected loss. Our family just recently had news of a sudden and unexpected passing of a close friend...and I may not be able to change the situation, but I can summons the courage to help carry him through this unexpected sadness. Spirit, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference. ~Reinhold Niebuhr
In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life. It goes on. ........R. Frost

He is having a lazy afternoon.
He's a beast.
He snorts like a pig.
He slurps water all over the kitchen floor
He leaves hair everywhere.

When I look into the eyes of an animal I do not see an animal. I see a living being. I see a friend. I feel a soul." ~A.D. Williams

He is so very loved.
He is the best.

Moving forward.
In addition to yesterday's post about making "big changes"...I am also going to be shutting down my website in the near future as well. That being one of the big "changes". I still, however, plan on posting to this blog.

So, over the next few months, I will be reorganizing, and designing to get more of style that is truly me. I am "moving foward" towards my dreams. And, for that, I am excited. Have a wonderful weekend friends!!!

Today, I am thinking you might just see some changes around here...for the better, of course!!

Hop, hop, hop.
This year, Easter consisted of a lot of twirling in a new dress with new jelly shoes...

...And, a lot of hop, hop, hopping....

Hop, hop, hop...

A new friend...

And, this one...well, he did a lot of jamming with a new set of headphones.

Hope you all enjoyed good company and lots of chocolate bunny ears.

Lensbaby blur.
Somedays are just better lived in the blur...

“She fell asleep, and it was a sleep as thin as the night clouds, dotted with dreams that came and went like the stars.” ~Lois Lowry

Actually, its just a special lens that I borrowed from a dear can check out her beautiful work and website here...

It's called a Lensbaby. And, that is my daughter below trying it out...because it really is a lot of fun.

We were using the macro attachment to get the "up close"look of her colored pencils. Kind of just gives you that fun "artistic" blur. Which, I happen to personally like, a lot!

It's not a lens you would really use all the time, but, if anyone wants to know what I want for Christmas early this year....{hint, hint} I am just saying it outloud!!! Just kidding...sort of!!

Today is Saturday.

Today it was a beautiful spring day.

The first time her laughter unfurled its wings in the wind, we knew that the world would never be the same ~ Brian Andreas

Today it was her and I.

Today was warm & sunny.

Today she just was not into pictures.

Today I can tell by the "look" she was giving me, or not giving me.

Today, that's okay. Because today, I love her more than yesterday.

Daydreaming of this today...

Moment in time.
Tonight I went for a walk at twilight.
It was chilly.
It smelled like spring.
It was spectacular.
It was refreshing to clear the mind.
Just a moment in time.

Time is free, but it's priceless. You can't own it, but you can use it. You can't keep it, but you can spend it. Once you've lost it you can never get it back. ~ Harvey MacKay

There is not enough darkness in all the world to put out the light of even one small candle. ~Robert Alden

The glow of one warm thought is to me worth more than money. ~Thomas Jefferson

And, I have no other words tonight.

Told ya.
I just knew it was going to be the PERFECT weather this weekend for puddle jumping in her mama's rain boots!!

...Ask yourself now where would you be without days like this when you finally collide with the moment you can’t forget. ~Shinedown

Love her. Love this.
