I’m not much of an art buff, but as far as famous art goes there is only one piece that has ever really caught my eye. It is the Sistine Chapel ceiling artwork done by Michelangelo. I can’t imagine the effort he had to put into this. Not only to have so many beautiful images on one surface, but to have painted it on a ceiling! Read more [...]
The song that immediately comes to mind is “Always On My Mind” by Elvis Presley or Willie Nelson. My Dad is not a very romantic or overly expressive person about his feelings so when he chose this song for my Mom’s funeral when she passed away it was so fitting and perfect that now every time I hear it I think of that and it makes me realize just how much he really did love her.
Quite honestly… I had NO idea what a fanfic was when I read this, ha ha! I had to Google it and find out what it meant.

Here is a picture of the cover of the book and if you click on the image it will take you to Goodreads Read more [...]
One of my all time favorite books is The Hobbit! I am really excited about this being made into a movie and I can’t wait to see it! I read this book, along with the Lord Of Rings Trilogy, when I was a really young girl! The books were old even when I read them. My family loved to go to yard sales on the weekends and my Dad knew that I was headed to look through any books someone might have for sale at a yard sale! I found these 4 books at a yard sale and convinced my Dad to buy them for Read more [...]
I’m not much for photos of random things… so most photos that I have taken are of my family, friends, etc. I decided on a picture of my 21 yr old daughter and my Dad on the day of her high school graduation. This picture was taken in May 2009, right before my daughter turned 18 yrs old! It is so hard to believe she is all grown with 2 babies of her own! Read more [...]
