Run girl!

When the only other option you have left is to run, then run and continue running until you can’t run anymore. I spent most of my night researching and crying I don’t know what’s going to come in the next few weeks, days, or months, but what I do know for sure is things have got to change but for now I’m just going to run to clear my head.

Long time no blog! 😭😭😭

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are all having an amazing Monday and even if your Monday isn’t going how you would like it, stop take a moment and reflect on the good, think of something that will bring a smile to your face and happiness to your heart and know that not every day will be like the present.  There’s an old saying “you will never have another day quite the same as the last.”

Well that’s all for now I will post again later to let you all know what I have been up to and how my life as a single mommy has been going but until then.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Sunday funday!

Good morning everyone and happy Sunday! So yesterday’s trip to the pumpkin patch was a major success. Caden had so much fun and couldn’t stop talking about the tractor ride. We picked out our pumpkins and some produce from the market including a bag of the famous sweet and delicious slough house corn that I can’t wait to cook and eat.

I am also so happy that our carport is finally finished so today is going to be so busy with a ton of places to go.

Well I hope you all have an amazing, peaceful, and relaxing Sunday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Pumpkin Patch here we come.

Good morning everyone, and happy Saturday.  As I sit in the car heading to the pumpkin patch with my son in the back I can’t help but reflect back on last year when we went and how many great pictures I got. This is my absolutely favorite time of the year, the colors are just so vivid and the weather is cooler and the spirit is high.

Well I hope you all have an amazing and color filled Saturday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

T.G.I.F I am back!

So it seems like here lately I can not catch a break just as soon as my family had gotten over the horrible cold we all had we all got the flu in the same day, but I am here to say we are all better now. I have a lot planned for this weekend hopefully a trip to our local pumpkin patch with my little guy which means this mama gets to play around with her big girl camera. I have longed to do a shoot in a pumpkin patch with my big girl camera capturing my son with all the beautiful colors of fall. We haven’t been able to go anywhere because the car port where we park in our apartment complex has been out of commission for almost 2 months, but I am happy to announce that they finally started working on it this week and it should be finished by today but the cement may not be dry until tomorrow. 

Also as you all know I have been working on a children’s book, but as I work on that book I have also started an adult fiction book and am super stoked to get this one out. I have finished my outline and have started the first few pages which means I am ahead of where I thought I would be right now.

Well I hope you all have an amazing, healthy, and peaceful Friday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Artful Friday! 🎨

Good afternoon everyone, and happy Friday. I hope you are all having an amazing friday. My day has been full of walking the block with my little guy collecting leaves for an art filled leaf tracing day. It is a beautiful cool autumn day and I am in love with all the vibrant colors and the smells in the air. I also decided while Caden was tracing and coloring to make a couple batches of cooking. So now my home smells of yummy goodness, laughter, and beautiful fall color.

Well I hope you are all having a peaceful, artful, full of color fall Friday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Autumn rain.

Good morning everyone, and happy Thursday. I was woken this morning to the first rain storm of autumn, and my gosh is it beautiful. I can’t even express how much I love the rain and our state is definitely in need of it too. I just have this feeling that today is going to be a wonderful day.

Well I hope you all have an amazing, and peaceful rest of your pre tgif.

Sunday funday!

Happy Sunday funday everyone, I hope you are all having a great weekend. I am using my weekend for writing, reading, reflecting, and relaxing. I also had plans to clean but am just not finding the energy to. For some reason even though I have been taking vitamin B-12 I still seem to have no energy. I think it could just be the heat but I just don’t know.

Well I hope you all have a peaceful,  restful, safe labor day weekend.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

It’s almost September!

Good morning everyone, and happy Saturday. I can’t believe we are coming to the end of another month and another season. Fall is just right around the corner and I can smell it in the air. The night are becoming cooler and crisp and the days are becoming shorter, the leaves on the trees are starting to change and the sunsets are more magical.

This season definitely feels like it’s going to be a magical one at that. I have an amazing feeling about this half of the year.

I also wanted to say that my back is feel much better than it did on Monday. Yesterday we took a tour of the state capital and I was in awww the whole time we sat in on an assembly and a legislature meeting and it was the most amazing thing I had ever witnessed. There are beautiful paintings and sculptures strewn throughout the 5 floors of the capital and the rotunda oh the rotunda, it is absolutely amazing and beautiful.

I also took a visit to the Vietnam memorial and the feeling there even after years is one of somber silence, while my son and dad were over eating lunch on the law of the capital I took a walk through the rose garden and was shocked at the beauty this garden holds. Types and colors of roses that I have never seen before and the smell made me feel like I was in Alice in Wonderland.

Well I hope you all have an amazing, safe, adventurous, and pleasant weekend.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Took a bit of a break.

Good morning everyone and happy Sunday. I am glad to say I am back I so needed a bit of a break to process all the craziness that has been going on, but I do want to update all of you I have been working on the children’s book I have been writing and it is coming along nicely I did take a break from writing for a little while but that only made what I wrote that much better.

The weather here has been amazing and beautiful the past 2 days I have been taking my little guy to the park and just being out in nature and watching him run and play has done wonders for my spirit.

We also woke up this morning to some very scary news that we had a magnitude 6.0 earthquake 48 miles from us in Napa and watching the news there is so much damage and so many injuries. I am sending my thoughts and prayers to all of those who were affected by this earthquake.

Well I hope you all are having an amazing, peaceful, and safe weekend.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.
