Happy Post Halloween 🎃💀👻

Good morning everyone and happy Saturday. My life has been a whirlwind of events. I am happy to say that I have my entire family back. I can not even begin to explain how amazing that feels.  I have also started knitting I taught myself Sunday, so as of now I have 3 projects going I have started knitting a scarf for Caden, I am crocheting a pair of arm warmers for myself, and I am still working on my book. I have also snatched up a bargain from our local 99 cent store, a pair of light suede knee high high heel boots for only $2 and they are absolutely comfortable.  Last night we went out trick or treating and Caden had a blast, we noticed there weren’t very many kids out as it was raining and really cold.

Well I hope you all have a peaceful, relaxing, and fun Saturday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

What have I been up to? 🌞

Good morning everyone and happy Monday.  So I know it has been a while since I have done a blog post, but here are some of the things I have been up to. I retaught myself how to crochet (there are 2 things my mom taught me before she passed away the first one was how to write and not only how to write but to write from your heart,  but also how to crochet.) I also taught myself how to knit yesterday. (Have never been taught before.) I am still writing my book however I did take a break from it this weekend as I am a bit stuck at the moment but am hoping to get back into it today. 

Halloween is only a few days away and I have been so busy putting together trick or treat bags and still getting my son’s costume together. 

Well I hope you all have an amazing, wonderful, blissful Monday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Thoughts

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday, as I sit her working on writing my book I just can’t get off of my mind my thoughts from yesterday’s train ride into downtown. While standing on the very packed train heading into downtown Sacramento I couldn’t help but notice that out of everyone riding about 90% of them were plugged into some kind of electronic device or another. Some were reading books on their tablets while others were on some form of social media. However I did see one man with a good old fashioned newspaper. This really got me to thinking how distracted this generation has gotten and what’s to come. Will we soon lose our voices because we won’t have a use for them? Will we come to a day and age where our voices will be from our text and not from our mouth?

Well I hope I didn’t put you all to sleep with my ramblings.

I hope you all have an amazing Tuesday.

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.

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.

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.

10 things you may or may not know about me.

Good morning everyone, and happy Monday.  All weekend I was trying to think about what exactly I would write about come Monday and I decided to do a 10 things you may or may not know about me some of the things I have mentioned in prior post and some I haven’t. Ok so here we go.
1. I live in the big city of Sacramento, California.
2. I don’t have a drivers license and am terrified to learn how to drive. 😨😨😨
3. I am currently writing a children’s book.
4. My mom passed away when I was 14 from a very hard battle with lung cancer.
5. I have an addiction!  Yes I said it I am addicted to coffee and tea.
6. While still on the coffee topic I drink my coffee black. ( no cream, no sugar.)
7. Throughout my early childhood my mom battled with an addiction of her own with alcohol.
8. I don’t drink or party.
9. Here’s one that I know is kind of cliche for most bloggers but I am very shy and soft spoken.
10. I have a huge passion for photography.

Well that’s it those are the 10 things you may or may not know about me.
I hope you all enjoyed my little jaunt.

I hope you all have and amazing, positive, and passion filled Monday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

It’s Wednesday!!!!

Good morning everyone, so I’m not sure if I have mentioned it yet but I’m writing a book. A children’s book I have been milling it over what I was going to write.  My first idea was to finish my mom’s book that she started before she passed away and I just couldn’t get the feel for it, I then thought about wright a book about my mom’s battle with cancer but as I was going through memories I found that it was draining me, making me sad, depressed,  and just all out blah. So that is how I came to the conclusion to writing a children’s book to pay homage to my mom that way. Now here is the hard part I have very few people backing me on my decision. I have more people telling me that I will never be published than I do supporting me. So this is where my positive attitude comes into play.

This is why I say stay positive no matter what, and always remember that positive attracts positive. If you set your mind to it you CAN achieve it.

I hope you all have an amazing Wednesday,  and remember positive attracts positive.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.
Stephanie 🌞🌺🌞🌴🌞
