Smokey Eyes

  The other day I was going to go meet a friend at a local coffee shop by the name of Coffee Cat.  I have been there several times and the owner, Cat, is a really friendly and nice lady.  The place features local musicians and although I always say that I am going to go listen to some of them I have yet to do that.  One day.

A Flashlight and A Man I Loved

  You saw correctly--that is a picture of a little flashlight.  I always carry it in my purse and today it has special significance.   You can understand because a very special man gave it to me the last time I saw him in August and today this very special man passed away.  When he gave it to me he said it was so that I could carry the light with me and whenever I reach into my purse and find it I think of him.  And today, I think of him even more.

The Impact of Facebook and Friendship

  You know I love using social networking---pretty obvious since I put myself out there as a blogger, huh???  I have a son who does social media work for his job and I have always seemed to gravitate toward social networking sites and love the idea of connecting with people.  I love to get comments on my blog---hence why I do giveaways and encourage others to comment.  It doesn't have to be anything profound or life changing but I love to read the comments of what people think of what I … [Read more...]


November 3rd: Number 3 Today I am thankful for friends! And I have many! One of the best things about my life has been the chance to move to different places and meet many different people.

I have the time now to spend time with friends and that is what I am doing!!! I am blessed!!! And YOU … [Read more...]
