Monday already????

It seems like the weekend just started!! Oh well, got to be grateful for any day we get. Another day of breathing while many people took their last breath before. So, embrace what you have! Enjoy the simple things that life gives you. Don’t let all the negativity talk affect you. Be strong. Remember your strength and what you’ve been through. We’re not getting any younger.

Every day is a new day. Every week is a new week. Be the person who you’ve dreamt of becoming.

Be kind, be courteous, be respectful.


 I have a game for you: let’s bring about more happiness and cheer in the world! I’m honestly tired of all those news reports and even many people complaining about the little things. 

So, name at least one thing that makes you extremely happy! Your child, your job, your breakfast, your car, a tiny magnet, a plant, your camera, the time you leave to go home for the day, or anything else! Big or small, it’s there. It’s there and alive and full of magic! Find that happiness and think about it all day! 🙂

You’ve got this!

Photography Friday!!

It’s Friday already?!?! Wow, where does time go?! Crazy!

I hope you all are hanging in there and keeping things together. I know life can get messy and chaotic and so many similar words. Remember your strength. Remember your worth.

To wrap up this glorious Friday, please appreciate this photo by and excellent photographer, William Eggleston.

Simple things go a long way! 🙂

Shout Out (Part 2)

Another birthday shout out!!! Someone very truly special special to me. Someone who gave me life and my name: my mother. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!! :mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:

All my strength, love, courage, stubbornness, and patience comes from her. She’s one of the greatest people I know! Yes, we have our good days and bad days, but I still love and cherish moments with her. She helps me out so much and I’m extremely grateful.

I love you so much mom. :mrgreen:😆

Hometown Artists

I decided to do something: to learn more about the state which I am currently residing. There are many artists who are from this state of Tennessee. They could lead very different lives, but they always go back to their artistic roots from time to time. It was very interesting to actually stay local during this time.

Here are a few of the names I have found:

Cal Alley

Casey Baugh

Nancy Cox-McCormack

Joseph Delaney

Joseph Knaffl

Norma Lyon

Alan Lequire

Ernest Pickup

Martha Tabor

Catherine Wiley

It’s an interesting way in learning these history and also geography lessons 🙂

You might be surprised by what you find if you also look into your home state/country 🙂
