  1. I'm feeling tired and excited, missing Adam, loving life and everything in it, reading blogs and the book, "Delivered From distraction" wanting to go on a road trip soon with my man, dreaming about the future, having oatmeal and coffee, and waiting for my Taekwondo Championships/ next weekend to go out and have fun. :)

  2. Hey friend! I'm Nina from The Blogging Elite and we want to celebrate your upcoming blogiversary with you. If you will email me at I will send you more info. Thanks!

    PS (I'm wanting a vacation too!!!)

  3. I'm with you on the reading blogs thing. I love to read, but I feel like that's all I ever read anymore! As much as I love them, I'm really missing reading novels.

  4. I wish I had more time to read! Even with the blogs I am reading I feel like I never have the time to just enjoy them as I always have a list a mile long I want to get through. I am really wanting a vacation where I can just read and write for a couple days straight...and maybe a nice bottle of red :)

  5. That vacation sounds great Donna!
    I know what you mean with the rush in reading now. I sometimes get overwhelmed with the number of blogs I wanna catch up with! I need a free day where I can relax and enjoy reading them.

  6. Me too! It's been so long since I read a book..

  7. Thank you Nina! (This makes me feel special :p ) I'll email you shortly..
    I hope you get that vacation soon!

  8. Thanks for sharing your update, Mariel! :)
    Road trip sounds great! I hope you get to do that soon..

  9. I'm with you on the vacation!! I am needing one of those as well :)

  10. I used to read so many books, until I started reading blogs. I am hoping to read some good books this summer though.

  11. feel better soon!! It's always interesting that we dream of home and old friends but are loving where we are at, at the same time. Hope you have an amazing day - turn it into a staycation! :)

  12. I'm sorry you aren't feeling well. :( I am also VERY ready for Memorial Weekend! It can't come quick enough!

  13. Thanks Logan! I am feeling better now :) What are your plans for the long weekend? Any special trips?

  14. Haha.. I did have a staycation this weekend- it was very relaxing :)
    And I agree, it's like we want to be in all the places at once.

  15. I have a few books but I haven't even started. Somehow it feels like a big reading and I end up not even starting. Although, I know I just need to start reading once and I'll be back into the habit!

  16. Hope you get one really soon..

  17. I am with you on the vacation. Sounds like a dream...

  18. Vacation…YES! Hope all is well, friend! Sorry for being so absent! Thinking of you! xxx

  19. Hey Chrissy, thanks :) all is well. Good to see you back here ..

  20. haha.. gotta make that dream come true!

5 Motivational Quotes about Gratitude // Monday Motivation

It's the Thanksgiving week, and we can use a little more gratitude in our life.  So, today I am sharing few quotes about gratitude  to fill our hearts more with love and abundance and to remind us that life isn't bad at all!

“Sometimes life knocks you on your ass... get up, get up, get up!!!  Happiness is not the absence of problems, it's the ability to deal with them.”  ― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

“Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart,  it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.”  ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

“In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it's wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.”  ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

“When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.”  ― Maya Angelou
