My Favourite Right Now/ Why I’m Who I Am

Today’s experiences are tomorrow’s memories

{Barbara Johnson}

I’m living my life in the hope that I have plenty of years ahead of me and that my time isn’t cut short. Every part of every day is important to me. I try not to forget the fine details, for these are the ones that will illuminate the landscape of my children’s own memories.

How are you going?


Are you sticking to your New Year’s Resolutions? Have you broken any of your new rules not even two weeks in?

I must admit I’ve only been following mine loosely but I can say I’m feeling GREAT!

It’s hard to stick to new rules when you’re used to your old, bad, unhealthy habits. But anything worth it is worth working hard for.

Good luck to you all and I hope you are enjoying the new challenges 2014 is bringing into your life

January 2014- The Joy Challenge


My first official photographic/blogging challenges for this year are to take a photo a day from a list of prompts {see attached- FMS Photo a Day}, a photo every day of my children and one photo {minimum per week} of myself with my children.

Why? Photographic evidence of a life enjoyed and well-lived is very important to me and since I’m always the bossy boots behind the camera, I’m getting in on the action and striking a pose.

You can follow me on instagram here. Challenge starting TODAY! {January 11th, 2014}

Can’t wait!

Hey You, Whatcha Readin?

So I have SIX books on the go at the moment. SIX. I haven’t had the time nor the patience to read in so long with two small goblins who constantly fill my days with utter chaos {when I’m not “relaxing” at my place of paid part-time employment- yes, it’s more relaxing working sometimes!}

Here are my current literary companions:

  1. Soul Lessons and Soul Purpose- A Channeled Guide To Why You Are Here {Sonia Choquette)
  2. The Simple Things- Creating an organized home, a happy family and a life worth living {Antonia Kidman and Sally Collings}
  3. Possession {J R Ward}
  4. Auschwitz- A Doctor’s Eyewitness Account { Dr. Miklos Nyiszli}
  5. Healing After Loss- Daily Meditations for Working Through Grief { Martha Whitmore Hickman}
  6. In the Land of the Long White Cloud {Sarah Lark}

As you can see, I like a wide variety of topics to keep me busy and my mind active.

What are you reading at the moment? Any recommendations I just can’t go past?
