Hmmm, it’s been awhile and not sure where the time has gone. I’m pretty sure blogging has been my creative outlet the past few years and now drawing/doodling has taken over my life. Guess what that means, no blogging. The full-time gig really gets in the way of all my creative playtime. Some day I hope to change this…
Well, very good news, Spring has sprung in Texas. You know what that means…
Bluebonnets & Bronco
Errbody’s out taking photos in the bluebonnets…and some look like they’re poopin’ in bluebonnets. And this is how we do Spring in Texas, y’all!
My favorite part of this time of year…temps are PERFECT and the flowers are GORGEOUS!!!
“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.” Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets
“Maybe some women aren’t meant to be tamed. Maybe they just need to run free until they find someone just as wild to run with them.”~ Carrie Bradshaw

“A dog has no use for fancy cars, big homes, or designer clothes. A water logged stick will do just fine. A dog doesn’t care if you’re rich or poor, clever or dull, smart or dumb. Give him your heart and he’ll give you his. How many people can you say that about? How many people can make you feel rare and pure and special? How many people can make you feel extraordinary?”
~John Grogan, Marley & Me
Looking at pretty things to get me through the work week…living for the weekend. Enjoy!

“However good or bad you feel about your relationship, the person you are with at this moment is the “right” person, because he or she is the mirror of who you are inside.”

I thought I would wish you a Happy New Year! I feel like tomorrow is the true start to 2014 since everyone will be back at school/work. I’ve spent the past few days organizing, cleaning and planning for the year. I must say I like a fresh start and love to review the previous year to see what progress has been made and what roads need to change.
Ok, so 2013 was borderline radio silence for my blog. There were a mix of factors playing. 1. I ran into a hiccup of posting pretty photos I find on the web. All the copyright talk had me a little nervous and I didn’t want to step on any toes. Don’t get me wrong I believe in crediting the right person for their work, I never try to claim something that’s not mine. However, finding who took the original pic was a challenge that took too much time and I LOVE visual blogs. 2. My interests are slowly changing. At the moment they’re all over the map with no direction and this is currently being figured out.
2014- I have the month of January figured out for the blog, crossing my fingers I follow through on all of the things I want to post. I spilled oatmeal on my LCD screen and currently using my work computer, which I don’t like to use for personal stuff.
How’s your New Year treating you? Any big plans for 2014?

“Do your thing. Do it unapologetically. Don’t be discouraged by criticism.
You probably already know what they are going to say.
Pay no mind to the fear of failure.
It’s far more valuable than success.
Take ownership, take chances, and have fun.
And no matter what, don’t ever stop doing your thing.”

“You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage - pleasantly,
smilingly, nonapologetically- to say ‘no’ to other things. And the way to do that
is by having a bigger ‘yes’ inside.”
