trust the process…



You have a gift, use it!

Keep pursuing your dreams and passions.

Life is full of roadblocks and people who do not want you to succeed.

The secret is that when you face these roadblocks, you know you are on the right path and doing something that matters.


No success story happened on a smooth road.

Success comes from trail-blazing and innovating.

Success comes from the kind of thinking that creates new paths for people to journey.

When you travel an established path, say an interstate for example, you see the hills and valleys that have been overcome, you see the bridges built and the rock cut away… the same goes for the path of our lives.


It is not easy to be a trail-blazer, but when God give you a message, gift or passion to share, then you have a hard road ahead of you…like it or not.

The world will resist you, but keep blazing the trail and find the bridges to build and the rocks to blast away.

You are creating a trail and once the trail is started people will start using it.

The occasional pothole or detour will always happen, but as life changes constantly, you too should constantly blaze new trails, innovate, and embrace your God given creativity.

No one ever changed the world by standing still. You have a gift…use it!

Eclipse 21 Aug 2017…

Why oh why have I forsaken you my sweet blog?! 🙈

Aww I know this may appear to be true, but I promise you I have not!

I am working on a couple projects which are taking up a good bit of my time and  my hubby and I are moving towards a major milestone in our lives 😉

Let me tell you, my days have been far from humdrum – just the way I like it!

It’s all good in the woods 🙂

Now about today!

For a few short minutes, the moon blotted out the sun, plunging a slice of the Earth into eerie darkness.

It finally happened: The Great American Eclipse.

Luckily we didn’t have to reserve a hotel room or try to persuade a farmer to let us camp in his geographically desirable cornfield for the day.

No sirree!

Our home was in the center of the path of totality!

It does not get any better than that!


A spectacular show! 😬

Now for some shots I took:




And my amazing husband took this one #DiamondRing 😍


“WOW” is all I can manage to say, as I sip my glass of  moscato 🍷 such a lovely experience …


Now for a sprinkle of sparkle to add to your week:

🎨You will never influence the world by trying to be like it🥂

An original is always worth more than a copy 😘

To see live video footage captured by my wonderful husband –  yep, I’m head over heels in love with my man 🙂 *blushing

Life is like biscuits!

The weekend is here!

We made it!

*happy dance

I’m sitting on my deck, enjoying the cool wind and I chuckled as I remembered this neat story and wanted to share this freshly baked biscuit of hope with you 🙂

So, one Sunday morning at a small Southern church, the new pastor called on one of his deacons to lead in the opening prayer.
The deacon stood up, bowed his head and said, “Lord I hate buttermilk.”
The pastor opened one eye and wondered where this was going.
The deacon continued, “Lord I hate lard.”
Now the pastor was totally perplexed.
The deacon continued, “Lord, I ain’t too crazy about plain flour. But after you mix ‘em all together and bake ‘em in a hot oven, I love biscuits.”
Lord, help us to realize when life gets hard, when things come up that we don’t like, whenever we don’t understand what You are doing, that we need to wait to see what You are making.
After You get through the mixing and the baking, you bet it will better than the biscuits!
Trust in His secret recipe.

🍂Dead leaves must fall🍂

Dead leaves must fall, in order for new ones to grow🌱

Whether it’s friend or family, you simply do not owe anyone an apology for taking care of YOU💕


It’s perfectly fine to keep them in your heart but out of your life; not everyone is meant to stay 👋🏼


It is said you are only going to be as good as the people you’re surrounding yourself with, so be brave enough to let go of what’s no longer edifying you.


Be at peace with your decision and keep moving.


Each day is a NEW beginning 🍸


Ciao for now, until I write again…


You can never cross…

You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore 🙂

Let us raise the bar higher!

“It is noisy out there and for some reason, people want to see you fail, but that’s not your problem.

That is THEIR problem.

I only remember the moments when I tried beyond what I thought I could do, and I do not remember the failures because I didn’t.


It’s just not supposed to work out that way because something better is going to come along.” ~ Sandra Bullock

Motivation Monday

Hi Loves!

I trust you had an awesome weekend & was not scorched to death LOL…it’s hotttt!!!

The beauty of life: changing seasons.

Now for a quick sprinkle of positive sparkles to add to your day:


REMEMBER:  Don’t let anyone attempt to dim your light just because it’s shining in their eyes.

Jealously is a disease, I hope they get well soon 🙂



Here’s some great advice: Invest in a couple pairs of sunglasses because it’s only going to be getting brighter & brigher and guess what?



Coming up next!

I’m interviewing a 3 time Emmy Award winner; a glimpse inside the mind of a champion!

Stay tuned 🙂

Ciao for now, until I write again…


Slices of joy!!!

It’s FryDay!!!

Excellent day to share a feel good recipe.

A couple weeks ago, I discovered that I have been gluten sensitive for many years; symptoms I thought were somehow “normal,” have now disappeared or drastically improved in this short window!


I feel as though I have grown wings and can fly! 🙂


So here I am:  gluten, grain, sugar and mostly diary free – which leads to the next question, what the heck do I eat?

This recipe I’m sharing has been tried, tested and TASTED by moi!

I’m making a fresh batch this weekend.

These pics are from my kitchen,  so you have the comfort to proceed full speed ahead:

Soooo, without further ado!



The scrumptious Almond Flour Bread!

Recipe can be found here:

I encourage you to try it if you’re all about the healthy lifestyle,  you just might like it 🙂

Be sure to drop me a line and let me know if you do!

Cheers to good health…
