Taking a Break...

Me with my adorable nephew Robert

I suppose I've already been taking a break from blogging for a few weeks (months?) has just been keeping me very very busy. So I guess this is just a more formal announcement that you might not be seeing me around much for a time. I will continue to be helping my mom out with the shop and posting photos to flickr so I'll still be around. I also have a facebook page and would love to add some more friends if you'd like to keep in touch. Thanks to all of my dear blogging friends for all of your encouragement and support. I will certainly be checking in on you from time to time and will be sure to say hello! Until then!

Just a little toot of the horn...

I was over the moon tonight when I found out that a few of my mom's lovely ladies had made it on to not one, not two, but THREE treasuries!! And though I missed it, one of them graced the Front Page today!! A perfect way to end my day of naming blessings, I'd say.

Below are the screen shots of the girls from their moment in the sun. Stop by and say hello if you have the time!

I am especially in need of a post like this right now as I have definitely learned how important it is to stop for a moment and take in the blessings that surround you, not only when all is well in the world, but during the dark times as well. I'm focusing my gratitudes today specifically on my commute to and from work. Anyone that lives, or has lived, in Atlanta will understand why this can be the most trying time of my day. So for the past few weeks I have purposefully set my mind on finding the beauty to be seen in the 2 1/2 to 3 hours I spend behind the wheel each day and today I want to share some of them with you.

1. The pretty pink leaf that fell on my windsheild last week and cheerfully fluttered under my wiper blade for several blocks.

2. Seeing a highschool boy walking down the street with a dozen red roses in his hand and a huge grin on his face.

3. The playlists I created for my morning and afternoon commute. {I don't believe there is anything better than really great music to ease the stress of a long drive}

4. The weather cooling just enough to turn the a/c off and roll the windows down.

Now it's your turn, what has made you smile lately?

my end of a very long summer mini-playlist

p.s. I have a full-fledged, honest-to-goodness crush on Andrew Bird and have had Armchair Apocrypha on permanent repeat on my iPod for over a month.
