the story of us: confidantes, pen pals, friends, and sisters.

Some things never would be But we know now that no matter how far we traveled on our own separate paths... Somehow we would always find out way back to each other. And with that, we could get through anything. To us. Who we were, and who we are. And who we'll be. To the … Continue reading the story of us: confidantes, pen pals, friends, and sisters.

all i have are the choices i make.

Darlene, one of the loves of my life, always knows the right things to say, even if I don't know the right question to ask.  On Thursday afternoon she knew the right quote to share: Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it … Continue reading all i have are the choices i make.

hot.mess…minus the hot.

Today is not my day.  Yes, there were certainly some 'YAY' parts to this Fri-YAY, as in FB chatting with Brandon and my lovely phone date with my beloved Darlene.  But unfortunately I could neither drink enough coffee nor find one more table to paint to turn this blahness into some thing resembling a smile.  My … Continue reading hot.mess…minus the hot.

we may look the same, but we are all changed completely forever.

Before I begin, I have to say that today is a very special day.  Today my dear friends, Darlene & Paul are getting married!!  And tomorrow they leave for their New Mexico honeymoon adventure.  I couldn't be happier for these two lovely people and the love that they found in one another.  It's a beautiful thing: … Continue reading we may look the same, but we are all changed completely forever.

one day you realize that the fairy tale may be slightly different than you dreamed.

You know how when you were a little kid and you believed in fairy tales, that fantasy of what your life would be, white dress, prince charming who would carry you away to a castle on a hill. You would lie in bed at night and close your eyes and you had complete and utter … Continue reading one day you realize that the fairy tale may be slightly different than you dreamed.

if i follow my heart, where will it lead me?

It took me awhile to fall asleep last night, and as Darlene and I say, "Those damn squirrels and bats were running around in my head."  So many things and nothing at all contributed to the many ideas that ran through my mind, keeping me from getting the much-needed rest for a back-to-work MOAN-Day.  Somehow … Continue reading if i follow my heart, where will it lead me?

you’re just a fool, just a fool to believe you can change the world.

I haven't cried in a long time...but I just did.  Over the smallest thing too, which I will regret doing once I feel better, and I know I (eventually) will.  An email.  I cried over an email.  An email that I anticipated getting for some time now, and an email that I set myself up … Continue reading you’re just a fool, just a fool to believe you can change the world.

life’s better as a mystery.

I thought, maybe it's a sign, after I saw a sign for tarot card readings last night and again this morning.  Hmmm...maybe I should have it done here.  Afterall I've always been curious.  So I posted "to get my tarot cards read or not to" as my Facebook status today (for fun) and this is … Continue reading life’s better as a mystery.

dear august, please be good to me.

I woke up this morning and apparently it's August.  Instead of wondering how that is possible, I have to admit that I'm just glad that July is over.  This past month was a rough one for me with many bad days and few good ones.  As the saying goes, you have to put up the … Continue reading dear august, please be good to me.

all you need is your girl friends

Let me first say that I spent my lunch break beginning a post highlighting my thoughts on this Moan-day.  To put it best, today was not my day.  But I've had many days like this to learn that you really do have to experience bad days like this one in order to appreciate the good … Continue reading all you need is your girl friends
