Things That Make Me Smile

Road Tripping

I’m off on another adventure—Yay—one that will take me to Nashville, Atlanta, Charleston, and parts of Florida. I’ve got my cameras and my favorite traveling companion behind the wheel—and away we go.  We’re as excited as two little kids!  Looking forward to making new discoveries along the way and sharing all with you when I return. Until then, I wish you a wonderful weekend—Hope you find countless reasons to smile!

Things That Make Me Smile

“There’s always something beautiful to be experienced wherever you are.  Right now, look around you and select beauty as your focus.”

~Wayne Dyer

The ordinary is always offering up infinite possibilities to become something quite extraordinary. A simple shopping expedition followed by dinner at one of my favorite spots with my two favorite people—that is experiencing the beautiful in life.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend—Hope you find countless reasons to smile!

“When you are loved, your heart rushes forth in the joy of the dance of life.

 Like someone who has been lost for years in a forgotten place,

you rejoice in being found…

When you are discovered, you then discover yourself.

 It is quite touching to see love bring someone home so swiftly to herself.”

Beverly Hills Hotel, 6 July 2005

I am still rejoicing in being found—still rejoicing in the discovery of a love that is deep and true and unconditional.  I remain baffled as to how my husband showed up at just the right time in my life, but I am so glad he did.  A finer man I do not know—kind, compassionate, a gentleman through and through. When people ask me how we met I often joke that he fell from heaven.  On this day that celebrates Love, I celebrate my husband—my love, my light, my favorite traveling companion.  Cheers to the amazing road ahead!

Wishing all who stop by love and blessings today and everyday—Happy Valentine’s Day!
