Dream Big!

Sometimes the only thing keeping you from your dreams, is you. Give into your dreams. Let them be dreams. Try not talking yourself out them before you even give them a chance. I think we often tell ourselves why they won't work, when we should be sitting back and imagining what it'd be like if they did. What would it feel like if they came true? Go ahead, dream big!!

It's a beautiful thing!

Love is a beautiful thing. The more you feel it, give it, and accept it, the more it grows. So today, give love and receive love. The answer to life is LOVE!

Chi Chi gets a treat

This is our cat Chi Chi. He gets pretty squeaky sometimes, especially when it's treat time. Every evening, and sometimes in the morning, Matt gives him a treat and this is how it goes.

I have been so fascinated by owls lately. I have drawn them, bought owl bookends and fabric, browsed online for owl related items etc. I love them! I think it all started when I was taking a walk through the apple orchard last September and came upon this lovely acorn. I thought it looked like a pair of owl eyes. So, I kept it on top of another acorn at my desk. Yes, I think that is where my love started.

Now, I have started to envision a babies room that doesn't technically have a theme but I would love to have owls be a part of it. So today, I made a template for a larger owl and a baby owl and cut out 3 owls from paper that I had. I am not totally sold on the patterns on the paper but I like the basic idea. I think I will be putting them on a branch and then into a frame. But this is just the beginning of my idea so we will see how it develops.

Live. Love. Laugh. Embrace.

Movin' and Shakin'

I am 23 weeks along now and I have really started to feel my little june bug moving. It is the strangest yet most amazing feeling!! There really is a little person in me, growing and developing. Baby will have a unique personality all of it's own. Wow! The whole process is just amazing. Last Friday, Matt and I were sitting on the couch and I felt a strong movement and knew it was likely to be followed by another. I put Matt's hand on my belly and he got to feel the baby move too. The look on his face was pure heaven. Such a sweet moment!

Nature called me

Nature called me this morning. We had a long conversation on my way home from work. We talked through the fog and nature told me I needed to get out and take pictures. Nature told me today was the perfect winter day because the temperatures were bearable and God had dusted the trees with a beautiful frost. I gladly went with natures wishes!
