40 day dream

Some of the best moments of my life have involved this song. I will never forget getting to see it performed live....twice. Great moments. Great memories.

(the video is kind with it.)

Monkey in the Tree

There is a palm on Olive I love to pass along my way. I like to believe there is a monkey in the tree. The long old fronds hang down and scratch against the trunk in the breeze. They only seem to move as I pass along away, like startled monkey scurrying in the tree. Though I know it's really just me, every time I pass I have to look to see if I can see the monkey in the tree.

The Cave

I saw this video a few weeks ago while I was staying in Vegas. I loved the video. I mean, how great are the Indian guys (they're Indian right?) in the band uniforms?! Especially the one singing. But the lyrics! The lyrics spoke to me.

Leading Lady

It is interesting how life comes full circle. I started this blog almost four years ago, inspired by Kate Winslet's character in "The Holiday." At a critical juncture she is told "in the movies we have leading ladies and we have the best friend. You, I can tell, are a leading lady, but for some reason you are behaving like the best friend." This struck a chord with me. I realized how true this was in my own life.

Unlike the movies, I unfortunately don't learn my lesson in 20 minutes or less. So four years later I am still learning to become the leading lady. I am learning what makes me a leading lady; what exciting story I have to tell on the stage of life. I am learning to make decisions that will propel me forward and steer the direction of my life. I am a long ways from the girl I was back then, but I still have a ways to go.

I am rededicating my blog to this pursuit. Moving forward, progressing, and improving.
Making each day a beautiful day.

Thanksgiving A la Mode

I want these crust cutters soooooooooooooo bad! The only thing better than pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving is pumpkin pie with autumn leaf crusts.
