I found these post to be real, honest, hit-the-nail-on-the-head correct, and witty and funny at the same time.  Hope they give you some entertainment and more importantly, some perspective as well. 



Making Peace With Pinterest



Sometimes we just need to say NO!  Even to Pinterest! I look to Pinterest for my INSPIRATION, not as the example of it has to look EXACTLY like the one they did.  :-)  Perfection is not the goal.  The goal is do something that you enjoy whether it be cooking, crafting, DIY projects, sewing, etc…The goal is to make something, to create something, to put your personal touch on it…make it unique…JUST LIKE YOU!



One Thing Your Daughter Doesn’t Need You To Say

Be the example?  Be a friend?  Be real?  Be you? 




My friend, Carrie-Anne (Hi CAS!), sent me the link to this blog thinking I would like it.  🙂 Oh yes, I have read this blog many many times….amazing, soulful writer.  Good good stuff.  The pressure of being “the example”.  Whew, that is tough..perhaps we need to rethink and rephrase that approach…not just with our daughters or sons, but ourselves as well.



What Do You Have Too Much Of?


Fiesta Plates


After this weekend of packing almost 40 boxes in preparation of our move, I can safely say we have WAY too much stuff…plates, bowls, books, fabric, glass, on and on…..remember my list of collections, I mean my hoard….Whew it is overwhelming.  One would think after packing up 40 boxes that it would look like a dent was made….well maybe a minor dent like a car ding in a parking lot dent….but there is more to pack. HELP!   And you all don’t even have a clue about the stuff that my lovely hubby, Pete, has.  LOL!    What do you have too much of? 


Hope you are having a great week!  It has been beautiful here in lovely north Alabama the past few days.  Get out and enjoy some sunshine.  Read anything inspiring, uplifting, funny, or just simply awesome lately?  Please share in the comments section. 


Be awesome today!
