Writing makes me happy!!!!

I really do love to write! In my journal..yes…I still must use pen and paper (love the feel of them in my hands, knowing my hands and mind are creating at the same time!), I have a plethora of ideas and thoughts, stories and imaginations to share! Sooner or later I will get them on this blog!! The thing about writing is that it’s quite freeing. I can think of something to do or some brilliant idea come along, and I just need to jot it down and move on to the next bit of brilliance! English was always my favorite subject in school, especially creative writing. I do not plan on willing any major awards sooh, but I do plan on writing more…in fact it will soon be part of my new adventure…new job really, that I will soon share here!! So excited about this!

In the meantime, feel free to pin, share and print the above graphic! Mr. Williams sure was on to something!

42 things before 43….Finally….THE LIST!!!!

This took a bit of time, but I finally have a list worthy of getting done…or trying to again this year! Last year’s list was no where near finished, so I have moved some to this one, but one thing I have tried to be open with myself about….and that is being honest and real about what I can do….this year, I want to do everything and make it successful for me….so even though some of the things may seem trivial, they are all important to me to be mindful, accomplish and work through….and besides…it’s more about the journey!

December Days

Day One-
Thankful for these beautiful nights and and crisp days. Dressing with sweaters and fuzzy socks. Hot chocolate and tea. The smell of trees. The chill in the air, pulling me closer to myself. The winter skies full of deep, rich tones that are something from a dream.
