Optimism: Inspire an Attitude of Gratitude
I mentioned last Saturday that I was going to focus on one Fishful Thinking ingredient each month between now and June. February is Optimism month. I thought I’d post a little overview of what optimism is and why it’s important (as parents especially) to focus on this great value! From FishfulThinking.com, I found a list…
Give Me Your Best Shot – Daughter in Law?
I think my 4 year old son may have met future wife. I had a vision of an older AJ and his little (girl)friend when she and her big brother, AJ’s best friend, were over at our house this week. By the way, I am just as smitten with this little girl as AJ is….
Making Valentine’s Day Memorable
As we near the end of January (how did that happen so fast?!) it’s time to start thinking about the next big holiday.

A Year Ago Today, At Chick-fil-A

Neosporin 3-Day Challenge
A few weeks ago, I received an email from Mom Central asking if I would be willing to participate in the Neosporin Lip Health 3-Day Challenge. The email said something along the lines of “….Many of us dread this season as we come to expect uncomfortable lip-splitting and cracking, fading color and scaly texture….” By…

Bloggography Challenge – ISO
Is it Tuesday already? How does the time go by so fast? It’s time for another Bloggography Challenge! But before we move on to this week’s challenge, I wanted to showcase one of my favorite pictures from the first challenge (Winter theme). I’ll be looking through this week’s entries to show off another favorite picture…
I Heart Faces – Texture
I’ve got to admit (and this won’t come as a surprise to those of you who know me): I rarely if ever use texture in my edited photos. Textures kinda scare me. I love looking at photos that have had texture added to them, but I rarely add them myself. So I almost didn’t add…
