Just Go For It!

 

 

Accomplish picassa with Sabrina's photo 2015

 

In honor of our daughter’s university graduation, I found this quote, which I thought was perfect for today’s festivities and celebrations. The gorgeous photo is from my good friend, Sabrina.

Our daughter has persevered not only academically but also personally and today she’ll walk across the finish line with a Bachelor’s Degree in hand. To say we’re proud doesn’t even cover all the emotions. 🙂

So go out and Live, Dream, Act and Believe!

Sending much love, Lauren ♥

Not again and then some!

     Do you have a family member or friend who is constantly taking photos? Do you have moments when you just don’t want to be the subject? I do, I have and I’ve been the guilty one clicking away.
     Copper’s been in our family for over three years now and I think we’ve taken about a million photos of him (slight exaggeration). But for those of you who own pets, don’t you agree there can never be too many pictures of our furry friends?
     I took the first three when he had better things to do (like chew on his bone). However, he complied but not without attitude. 🙂 He weighs about 74 lbs, is tall and lean and all muscle, which is why this first photo makes me smile. In the photos following, you’ll see his true self.

Just a little

“Time’s almost up”

No more

“I’m done!”

and now some photos from my son…

Offering Good Cheer

Life picassa 2014

 

The holidays are joyful in many ways, but they can also be tough.
Skipping Christmas is often wished for through difficult circumstances and going through each day with merry measure, being joyous all together, simply may not happen.

We all have problems we’re dealing with on various levels. No one is exempt and as we turn on the news, trying to be joyful in a world filled with so much tragedy isn’t easy; it’s hard enough to comprehend.

So I’m offering a little bit of good cheer and inspiration. It’s not a lot and it might not help. Then again, it might make a difference for even one person reading, which would mean the world to me.

Remember, while the road may be unpredictable, you’ll always have “tough and strong” to lean on. 

Sending Love, Smiles and Blessings for this day and all days to come,
and wishing you all a very Merry Christmas! 

Lauren ♥

 

Man’s Best Friend’s Entertaining Antics

Ever since Copper became a member of our family,
squirrels have become the “bane of my existence!”
He shows tremendous confidence in being able
to catch the fast little critters, but to no avail.

feeling so close, yet so far
there’s hope for next time

 High up in the sky

looking down as if to smile

they always prevail

(but Copper also shares mellow moments
where he breathes in the beauty around him)

The enjoyment and fun our furry pets provide us
is priceless and worth a million smiles…
