Parents, if you want wonderful pictures of your children, never teach them to say "cheese"! Please learn from my mistake or you will have thousands of photos just like mine - squinted eyes, scrunched up noses, clenched teeth, and an image that just screams "say cheez!!!". Join me while I search for that one perfect shot that doesn't conjure up images of dairy products. Oh, and unless you like that *messy* look, you'll probably want to clean their faces before you snap away. I never seem to remember myself.

An imporant sidenote is to make sure you document your life! Recording the little details of the who, what, where, when, & why makes for wonderful stories and captures your life for years to come. Because if you are like me, you'll forget it all 5 minutes later!

Spring Flower Therapy

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. (Thank You)
- Marcel Proust

Everyone else can suck it.

Ok, so that isn't quite in the spirit of the zenful quote of Proust, but some days it is just they way it feels. And this attitude is fitting when faced with some of the rather nasty attitudes that seem to emerge from people these days. I don't tolerate bitchiness well and recently I've been face to face with more of these snarky attitudes than I care to encounter. Instead of dwelling on it and letting it get the best of me, I am going to make it a point to redirect and focus on the blessings and wonderful people who bring kindness and acceptance into the world.

A little visualization on some lovely blooming spring flowers {given to me by my hubby, who regularly brings me flowers - see...blessings! grateful!} certainly helps with the redirecting goal.

Although, so does saying "suck it". :)
