January Photo a Day 30. Nature

Aahhh, nature. I am really not that much of an outdoorsy kinda girl. There are certain aspects of nature I love… roses, the ocean, the breeze in the mountains. I live in the city. We have tried to make our home comfy, but we really are not so great at maintaining…  But here is a bit of nature around my home.

Floral Nature...

Here’s another one. More like what you’d find in the desert.

January Photo a day – Catching up… 27. Lunch, 28. Light & 29. Inside Your Fridge

It has been a busy weekend. So I will just do one post for the last couple of days.

27. Lunch – I mentioned before I just failed to get a lunch photo so I have decided to share what I had when I met “A Bit of Sparkle Farkle” at a fun independent coffee house, Cartel. It was a wonderful connection. I am looking forward to this new friendship.

MMM.... Blackberry scone and hot Chai

28. Light – The 28th is my brothers Birthday and if I could have gotten a shot of a Birthday Cake & Candles that would have been great. But I didn’t get to see him that day. 😦  I did come home to a crazy fort built in the living room. With the window behind it the light hit just right.

Later I was with my youngest and was able to catch this photo of Light.

Light #2

29. Inside Your Fridge – I have to say, I was not looking forward to this photo. It is usually a mess in the sense that it is full of stuff & things. But, here you go…


That’s all for today. Tomorrow is Nature…



Faith – God Wanting You to Press In

It is interesting the way God speaks. For each person it is as unique and individual as they are. For me, He uses several different methods, quotes, sermons, music, friends, and the dearly loved 2 x 4. (ouch!)

Recently I had three separate moments that all “spoke” the same thing to me. “Press In.” “Keep going forward.” “Expect God to move.” At times it is hard to keep moving forward when the progress you expect and want isn’t coming. I sometimes forget that the unseen is making progress while I’m making my forward motion at a snails pace.

Here is what caught my attention. A sermon given Jan 2nd on Sweet Baby Jesus – Luke 2:21-52. About several people expecting and looking for God to show up. In the end was asked the question… What are you expecting from God this year? And encouraged to look to where God is moving and partner with Him.

Then this quote popped up on my Facebook feed, Joyce Meyers, “Right now God is working and you will see what He’s doing at just the right time. He may not be early but He won’t be late!”

Then I had a great meeting with some Girlfriendit leaders that talked about the same thing… pressing in, going forward even when you don’t know what the outcome will be.

So what does this all mean. Not sure, but believe me I am Pressing In!  What about you?

Make up – January Photo a Day 26. Colour

Colour is such a big part of my life! I help people wear the right colours (clothing & make up). I want and like colour in MY wardrobe. Although if you ask my 6 year old he’d tell you I like black. He’s right, I like it WITH colour. 🙂  Colour in my home, we have purple couches. Yes, my husband is OK with this.

This palette is one of my favorite from BeautiControl. It’s called Tropicana. Just so pretty. Can be subtle or bold.


Fashion – January Photo a Day 25. Something You Made

I am creative but not in a crafty sense (or at least I don’t feel as If I am). So the “something you made” threw me off a little, other than dinner yesterday. 🙂  Then I remembered I had make some bracelets with my MOM’s group a few years back. Each from a different year and theme. Yes, I still wear them.

Something I made

Kinda silly I know.

January Photo a Day 24. Guilty Pleasure – Chocolate

I have to laugh I got the days mixed up and photoed and posted to my FB and Twitter tomorrows photo. That’s what I get for running around with my head cut off.

At any rate, my usual guilty pleasure is chocolate. I just happen to pick up these goodies today when I popped to the store. MMMM  Chocolate… (insert Homer voice).

Here is the ooops photo. 🙂  Dinner for my boys. (Something You Made)
