life lately...

Just one day late... but it was a busy week with lots of fun!

1. Fun at the zoo day... we're making a second huge paper mache ball. 
The smell of it reminds me of my Miss Piggy paper mache mask in 4th grade.

2. Blue sky. Is there a more beautiful blue? I don't think so.

3. Zoo lights... more fun at the zoo for Zoobilee! Our great night even included dancing!

4. Writing down our Saturday morning sightings.

5. Opa! I love when this guy shows up! It means Greek festival and baklava.

6. For our Valentine's celebration we went to a painting party.
Ours turned out pretty good!

7. Soup & salad... it's what was for dinner!

8. There's something about the way the evening sun makes the trees glitter gold after a rainstorm.

9. This kitty... she is the only way I can get my kids to text me back,
so I try to catch her looking cute for them!


happy valentine's day!

Wishing you a day that has you feeling loved!
Happy Valentine's Day!

working towards me

I've been starting my days early... four-thirty early.
When you know yourself, you have to find ways to win against the games. I know that I will make any excuse not to exercise after work, and thinking of excuses can be exhausting. So... I refuse to let myself have the chance to think.

Wake up.
Get dressed.
Workout. No time to think up an excuse!

Someone shared this with me the other day... and while I had heard the first part, what followed was new to me.

A dream written down with a date becomes a goal
A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan.
A plan backed by action becomes reality

And so... I continue to set my alarm to win against myself.

sunday splash...

I see skies of blue and clouds of white. 
Bright blessed days and dark sacred night. 
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

-Louis Armstrong
