Happy 4th of July weekend! This is going to be an interesting celebration without fireworks this year I am sure there is an Iphone app for fireworks I will have to check it out. But we B’s are not going to let that stop our celebration No Sir. This last week has been an interesting test of strength, patience and passion. A brief hospital stay a change in a relationship with my best friend (a change in the best of ways, we have grown closer than ever) and a few other little life tidbits that were thrown my way yet here I sit and type with a smile bigger than most would expect. I am very happy with my life and where I am at, at this very moment!!!

With an extra day of weekend and no ‘out of town’ plans, I’m looking forward to lots of relaxation, creativity and fun in the days ahead.

I am going to start compiling a weekend of To-Do’s…….Simple little creative lists that will inspire extraordinarily joyful weekends. Make your own list share whats on your to do?!?!?

An ideal morning

The moment when you first wake up in the morning is the most wonderful of the twenty-four hours. No matter how weary or dreary you may feel, you possess the certainty that, during the day that lies before you, absolutely anything may happen. The fact that it practically always doesn’t, matters not a bit.

The possibility is always there.

I have this vision of my ideal morning – It plays out quite similar to the start of a romantic comedy.
An easy Sinatra song plays in the background. I unfold my skinny arms and legs into a looong stretch. I roll over, shut off the alarm and climb out of bed with a serene smile on my lips.  I take a refreshing shower, find the not so perfect outfit and effortlessly apply my makeup.

Make the most out of your morning, I just did!! :))

Clothing that is never out of season

Look outside your window. Does nature not look beautiful. Does the grass not flow endlessly? And in the morning does it not make your feet sing just by touching them? Those flowers, do they not pleasure your nose in an oh so wonderful way? Does that waterfall not please you ears, and calm your mind? … I thought so.

I’ve always regarded nature as the clothing of God.
