Musically Monday: Dude Looks Like A Lady!

Happy Monday everyone! I’m feeling particularly in a good mood this morning!  I don’t know if it was the hassle free homeschool morning that I’ve had, or the extra sleep (we all need to get used to the new time).  But what ever it is, I’m smiling and in a great mood! While cleaning around, since I’m in the middle of Spring cleaning, I started humming Aerosmith: Dude Looks Like A Lady. When ever I hear this song, I cannot help but think of Mrs. Doubtfire.  Ya’ll remember that movie?  I know I cannot forget...

Walking With Blocks

Walking With Blocks

{I used an overlay to give this photo some texture or grit, and I set the opacity to about 30% so that it wasn’t in your face grit} About the Photo— I have undertaken a project in our home that has managed to turn this place up side down! Since LittleZ started to walk, and became more sure of himself, I wanted to make sure that he would be safe in doing so. After finally making some changes for him and Zee to play, while opening up their space, I set him down. The blocks in the toy chest was the first thing he reached for. He can’t...

Importance of Letting Go

Importance of Letting Go

Earlier this week, we celebrated the beginning of Lent, and of course that means it is a great time to do a lot of reflective thinking, and refocus on the things that are important. Now, when I say the things that are important, I mean not only important to me, but to my family as well and my role in my family. No doubt, you know that I home school, I am a stay at home mom, and that job consists of everything under the sun. There are tons of things that I would love to do just for myself. To focus more on what it is that I want, and the...

Life Through My Lens Thursday- Week 9

  Life Through My Lens Thursday Photography Challenge is my take on a Project 52.  I chose one object – Linus – and decided to photograph him using different themes and techniques.  Other times, I’ll make a story out of the photographs that I take.  To see the beginning of my challenge, start here.  *** This week on Life Through My Lens (haha, sounds like a soap opera) I tried my hand at the concept of hidden.  But then I got bored with that for a bit, and decided to have Linus play in my plush rug. This weeks theme:...

Life is a Song

Life is a Song

Remeber this quote….   The part that stands out most to me is ‘life is a song.’   Imagine this… Everyone of us has a melody. A tune that represents our life, and no matter which instrument we pick up to play, the only tune that we can play is our own. Some of us bop to the genre of Hip Hop, Rhythm and Blues, Country, Jazz, Funk, it doesn’t matter the genre, because our melody is flexible to encompass all of these musical forms without sacrificing our own originality. This is a bit of how my inner world function. Throughout the...

Musically Monday Presents: Life

I hope everyone has a great start to their week so far! So as I mentioned yesterday, my interests has been changing and a lot of that has to do with the personal growth that I know I am going through. Be it my birthday that is coming up soon (expect to hear a lot about that this month–fair warning ) or just the season that I am in my life, I expect this as much. Since Mondays I share with you a glimpse of what goes on my mind (and iTunes account) through my music, I wanted to share this part of myself as well. Would it surprise you that...

Season of Lent Begins

This photo was taken with my iPhone (had to share that tidbit ) I was inspired by an artist (forgive me, I did forget his name) who took a picture of a park bench at night. When I went to the beach, I saw these benches and I was intrigued by the repeating circle pattern.  This reminds me of life and how we pass one phase after another.  How we always seem to run past one phase not realizing that there will be another one right behind it.  Instead, we should slow down and enjoy the different phases we go through.  *** Season of Lent begins...

While still in catch up mode, I wanted to share a few things that I’m rambling about and I’m excited to share with you! *Friday’s Vlog will be late hahahaha.  I recorded a video, but have yet to edit it, so I’m thinking it will be going up tonight or tomorrow morning.  It gives you a glimpse into what I’ve been working on, and why I need to...
