Love ❤️ this quote especially since I have been working on getting my photography page up and running.  

I’ve loved photography since before I can remember.  In high school I used to spend hours just taking pictures and using the developer room at school to develop them.

I love capturing life’s moments whether it be my own or someone else’s.  

“Develop from the negative” … Learning from mistakes is part of the journey in life.  Taking chances sometimes doesn’t always work out but you can always start over and try again.  Moving forward…always moving forward.

 quotes inspiration domesticated momster 

I feel like we are always so busy comparing ourselves to the next person.  

They’re prettier, smarter, wittier, more outgoing…seems like they have it all.

In doing this we don’t stop to realize our own selves as beautiful creatures as well.

It’s ok to admire someone else … Just always remember to recognize the beauty within yourself first.

Quote Of The Week ~ Jan 3

 quotes Bono U2 inspiration peace 
I have liked “U2” for probably as long as I’ve loved “No Doubt”.  I even got to see  both of them in concert together which was one of the best concerts I’ve been to….and I’ve been to a lot.

Bono has always been about trying to make the world a better place not only with his music but many acts of kindness around the globe.

But sometimes, even being rich and famous can’t solve the worlds problems.  But you can always start with yourself.

2016 is truly going to be my year of goals and changing the world in me.

 quotes Christmas2015 kids favorite quotes

When I was a child I loved Christmas.  I would count the days starting right after Thanksgiving.  I would watch every holiday show, look at every house I saw with Christmas lights, and check every package under the tree to see if it had my name on it.  Christmas Eve I barely slept and as soon as there was a glimpse of light on my window I was up!

Once I became an adult Christmas just wasn’t the same anymore.  The only thing I really looked forward to was having a day off.  There were some years I didn’t even put up a tree.

Then I had kids…and it all changed.  

It’s almost better than when I was a kid because I get to watch all their excitement.  I get to know what it feels like to create that for them.  To watch their fascination as I tell them different things about Christmas and start Christmas traditions of our own.
The happiness in my ❤️ is unexplainable.  Having children is a blessing all its own but having children at Christmas time is truly magical!

~Favorite Quote #24~

When I was younger, I always cared about having nice things.  I still like having nice things but what’s most important is being able to fulfill the lives of my children as a mother.  To remember that even on the “bad mommy” days I’m still doing my best and being their mommy.  I want them to grow up knowing that I was always there for them and always put them before anything else in my life. To know that I made a difference.

~Favorite Quote #23~

Favorite Quote #23 quotes inspirationI think that in order to obtain true creativity, sometimes we really have to dig deep and produce something that feels perhaps inappropriate.  I have said before that as an artist it’s ok to bleed from time to time regardless if it’s going to cause some controversy.  Being real is better than being fake despite who you are going to upset.  I could honestly use this advice when it comes to some things I would like to write about.  I have so many pieces of me that I have written about but then upon clicking the publish button, I start to think too much…start to think who it will effect…and then stop myself from publishing it.

~Favorite Quote #22~

Favorite Quote #22 #quotes inspiration music soul feelings

I have always surrounded my life with music.  I could give up tv in a heartbeat but I could never live without the sound of a good tune.  I have heard that when you are happy you “feel” the beat and when you are sad you “hear” the lyrics.  That is exactly what music does to me.

I recently did a post about One-Hit Wonders and listed a bunch of songs in which brought back so many memories for me.  Some good…some not so good but the fact that music has that kind of effect on me is amazing!  One song can spark a specific memory, can bring tears to my eyes and even plant goosbumps on my skin.  It can make me want to dance or put me to sleep. It’s truly been an important tool for me throughout my life.

The reason “No Doubt” is my all time favorite band is not only because they make great music but Gwen really pours her life onto the pages of those songs.  As an artist I think it’s so important to bleed sometimes. To be real.  On that note I will leave you with one of their songs that got me through a hard time in my marriage when my husband and I were apart due to his job and a part of me started to believe that “maybe I didn’t need him” this song helped bring me back to the reality that I truly did.


I’m broke
Let me show you where it hurts
I’m trying to be brave
This wasn’t in my plan and nothing you can do, I’ve changed

It’s such a waste

I’m undone
And there’s nothing I can do this time, it’s all out of my hands
And just when I was getting good
Why’s it have to end?
I don’t understand

And don’t leave me behind
This time I need you, nothing’s feeling right
Oh, I’m in trouble, help me
No one needs you more than me

I know
I made you feel like you were lucky to have me
But now I’m panicking, I’m lost, you’re the one I need
Be patient please
And don’t leave me behind
This time I need you, nothing’s feeling right
‘Cause I’m in trouble, help me
No one needs you more than me

Change me back
Please, change me back
I don’t know who I am anymore
I can’t take it anymore

And don’t leave me behind
This time I need you, nothing’s feeling right
‘Cause I’m in trouble, help me
No one needs you more than me

No one needs you more than me
