Proud of my Mom

My Mom is such a creative person... she has been my whole life... as a little girl I longed to be able to sketch like my Mom, she wrote poetry so beautifully and always had that special touch to everything... I know she's always wanted to have a little shop to showcase and sell her work but it just hasn't happened.
About the last year or so she's really gotten into designing handmade jewelry. Each piece she designed encouraged her to do more. Finding the time to sit down and really work on the pieces I know isn't always easy but she's really put her all into it lately and now she has her own webpage!

Now that I've shared the page let me talk a bit more about my personal feelings towards this and how it inspires me. She decided to do something, took a risk and followed though... this is my Mom! If my Mom can do this, then maybe I can follow in her steps and be just as awesome. I know she's doubted herself over the years in different ventures and been wary of what would happen if she took the big steps to sell her hard work but she did it! I'm so proud of her and hope you all check out the site, and maybe buy a piece or two! :)

Lost Dreams

It's 2011, times are tough and everyone is out here grinding to get to the top... So many have lost their jobs due to the recession and have to take jobs doing whatever comes their way just to have food on the table and a roof over their head. Not many really want to flip burgers or work the local department store register but if you want to survive we do what we have to do. It's how the country works... if there was noone flipping burgers, where would we get our food? What does this have to do with dreams? well a lot.... As a child one of the questions we are asked most often is what do you want to be when you grow up? Some ponder this and reply with whatever their mommy or daddy does, others reply doctor or fireman, some just don't know. We are told we can do anything! We can concure the world if we work hard, pay attention and try.. then real world hits... you gradute school and have more bills than zeros on your check, you get pregnant, or hurt yourself and lose a s

Rebirth

Time for me to put up one of the most honest and realest blogs you have ever seen from me. Since my break up at the end of 2011 I really haven't discussed it. I closed the door, shoved it under the rug and just kept my fingers crossed that every time I went out no one would ask me where 'he' was. I am sitting here looking at the last year. The things that have changed and decided it was time to write this... In that relationship we had it all planned out: goals, dreams, cars, kids, marriage and more. I thought I had met the man that I was going to spend the rest of my life with and I started living just that way. As though this was my husband and he was going to be at my side through it all, no matter what... WRONG. Life isn't that easy.. I should have known that but my happiness and desire for a real committed relationship clouded my decisions at the time. I won't discuss the details of  the break up or intimate details of the relationship but I will say it w

Our Mail System

I know there are millions of hard working postal workers making sure people get their letters, bills, parcels and more each day. They venture out into the cold, heat, rain, snow and more to do a job and I appreciate it. That being said isn't it time for a change? It's 2011 and we are still depending on a service that quite honestly is slow, undependable and usually carries more junk to out door than needed materials. We have no way to track most mail which means no way to verify it was sent, it was received or if it was taken somewhere along the way. If you can't tell already I'm waiting on mail, not just any mail either... I'm waiting on money. A check I usually receive every other Friday has not came, and its now the following Tuesday. Of course this check was sent VIA our lovely unites states postal service so where is it now? Noone knows.... I've been told as of today I have to allow 14 days before they will stop payment and send a new one. blah...
