Someone once said… “Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.”

My best holiday wishes to you…

 

 

The little princess enjoys a quiet moment with her baby doll, during a holiday party.

 It’s almost Christmas, my favorite time of year, where did the time go. Every year I say it and each time I say it, ( where did the time go) it rings more true than ever. Christmas day will be here and gone before we know it and there are still so many things I want to do, holiday baking, a visit to the live nativity scene, shop for a needy family, wrap the gifts while listening to Christmas music, I could go on and on. There is still a lot to do and my week is scheduled to the brim.  

Working retail during the busiest time of year is hard and requires a lot of energy and planning ahead- something I’m not always good at. Although I will be working all day everyday this week while spending an hour and a half a day on the road, I am looking forward to the sparkly energy that only the holiday can bring. This means that I may not have another opportunity to post before the big day.  

With all that said I want to be sure to wish all of you the warmest, sparkliest holiday, full of all the things you’ve hoped for. I hope you take the time to savour every single moment. Be patient, be kind and by all means enjoy it! I’m sending my love and warmest wishes to all of you.

You mean so much to me. Merry Christmas…….

Believe in magic, wish for all things possible, dream of beautiful things to come and celebrate it all!

Love,  love-jj

A wish and a little inspiration feeds the soul

IMG_4022 6

Do you feel that hump in the road? It’s coming from somewhere, perhaps from the television blurting out negative thoughts of doom and gloom or maybe it’s already living and breeding in the minds of the people you encounter every day. However it has managed to manifest itself I just want it to go far, far away. It really cramps the style of this day dreaming girl who likes to think of the world as a beautiful place where all things are possible if you truly believe.

So what is a girl like me suppose to do? How can she chase away all these naysayers or smooth out the road before her? She started with a tiny wish that came from a little inspiration that started with a tiny seed. Her wish is for the world to become a little bit softer a little more open which will allow this girl with the perpetual day dream to spread her words and vision far and wide.

Where would this girl get such a seed to allow something like this to take place? Well, the seeds my friends came from all of you. You with your courage to fight a disease that you never asked for and you with the resilience to over come the heart break of losing a loved one and yes even you for the tenacity to change your life at risk of losing everything. You are all tiny seeds of inspiration that give me hope to spread my wings and fly. Thank you for that! 

 Perhaps you’re wondering why I’m sharing this with you today. It all started yesterday when I could hear those naysayers louder than ever, shouting in my ear and I felt that bump in the road more than before. So what did I do to resist, fight back and flatten that bump once and for all? 

I retreated to beautiful blue skies and wide open spaces. A little bistro table and me set out for the field and claimed a spot to sit and dream. We sat for a spell and looked up at the sky, the trees, the birds, and wild flowers too. It was lovely and just the right spot to foster those tiny seeds to take root and you know what happens when you plant a seed. Something wonderful breaks through the soil, spouts hope and breathes life into the hearts and minds of all those hopeful souls who open their windows and relish the breeze.

Are you a wide open soul? Do you let hope follow you home? I think you are but if not I think I have a solution that involves the power of many.

I encourage you to turn off the TV and close your ears to negative noise, then Sit quietly for just a moment and let the seeds of hope take root. If you foster them just a little I assure you they will grow and bloom just beautifully. Imagine if we all worked together to create this beautiful garden of wishes and dreams and hope times ten.  The hope and dreams of one girl is special but the magic of many minds working together can change everything!

So this is my thought, my wish, my dream for today: lets all close our eyes and see the world and our lives not as they are but as we wish them to be. Take just a moment and imagine us all sitting together in a circle holding hands and dreaming good thoughts that last forever. So wish away-you can do it, I know you can.

I’ll be right here waiting for you….

Found words-through the lens…

IMG_3382 2

Until I fly away

Wrapped so tightly in a mystery that whispers like the wind in your ear, softly spoken but not without a stand:

it calls your name and beckons your soul to break free, finally free.  Do you live in your head?

Think of every word you may have written and each town you’ve ever lived in.

What did you say, who kept you warm, were you free, really free? It’s all in your head.

I am holding something precious, tightly, ever so tightly. It is the words to a love song, 

the recipe for success , a mystery with nothing more to say. Don’t live in your head.

You can see me, reach out and touch me, but only until I break free and fly away.

 

I have been busy putting together the “found words in photography” project for my Studio pink store. I hope to list a few sets later today. I love the green and brown speckled eggs in this nest. I believe they belong to a mockingbird.

I took a run through the field last night and came across a gorgeous tree just loaded with spring time blossoms. I couldn’t resist….

The blooms gave off a  slightly floral aroma that was dipped in an essence of  fresh honey as it dripped off the hive. Can you smell it? It was Heaven to my senses. I enjoyed every breath I took while under this tree. The pink buds opened to a creamy white sensation and the leaves were a fresh spring green. It was magic to my eyes and nose-perfection!

Enjoy the day!

Dear MR. President…

In honor of inauguration day I wanted to give my readers an opportunity to write an open letter or statement to the president expressing their wishes for a new beginning. Whether you helped elect Barack Obama into office or not, I want to hear what advice you have for our newly elected President. How can he keep the dream alive and heal a country that is on the brink of disaster.  Help President Obama help you.
