My Boy…

my boy collage

  “Son, you outgrew my lap, but never my heart.” ~Unknown It’s been a week of many new things, more grown-up things. The first locker at school, learning how to open that lock. A pierced ear, because that seemed to be the thing to do. Meetings for joining the golf team. Trying on golf shoes, in […]

Beach Lover

beach quote

See that little one running? That’s one of my beach babes… the youngest. I wish I could stop time, maybe slow it down a bit. Today, I went with the boy to buy his books. He’s a middle schooler now. Before we know it, it’ll be early mornings, drives to school and afternoons spend doing […]

All Good Things

swedish proverb

  I love this proverb and it’s really something I try to strive for. I try to see the positive in all things and people. ( Some would say that’s naive.) I believe in the benefit of the doubt, in the glass half full and things happening for a reason. I definitely believe we should […]

Knowing Yourself ~ A Quote

quote 6-12

  Isn’t this just so true? Instead of always wanting more, sometimes I think, it’s good to stop and just look around you and appreciate what you have. I know, I’m guilty of it… guilty of wanting more, wanting something bigger and better than what I have now. It’s not always a bad thing. But […]

Sunsets… make me happy

  Can you blame me? Look at those colors? I just can’t get enough of it, them… I love walking my pooches around sunset, looking over the lakes and watching the sky put on a light show. I’ve taken so many sunset pictures, I’ve lost count. I will take many more. Seeing a sunset soothes […]
