Gifted for Something

“Life is not easy for any of us.  But what of that?  We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves.  We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.”

WPC: Room…Collapsed.

“We are all dying, every moment that passes of every day. That is the inescapable truth of this existence. It is a truth that can paralyze us with fear, or one that can energize us with impatience, with the desire to explore and experience, with the hope- nay, the iron-will!- to find a memory in every action. To be alive, under sunshine, or starlight, in weather fair or stormy. To dance with every step, be they through gardens of flowers or through deep snows.”
– R.A. Salvatore

Sweet Flower of Love.

“Mama was my greatest teacher, a teacher of compassion, love, and fearlessness.  If love is sweet as a flower, then my mother is that sweet flower of love.”  – Stevie Wonder

Happy Mother’s Day!!

Gervais Street Bridge… One Year in the Making.

 

Bridge wm

I’ve been saving this photo because it’s one of my favorites… and I didn’t even take it!  Credit for this photo goes to my dad.  Awesome composition, in my opinion!  I’ve played around with this picture so many times.  It’s basically our backyard, it’s a very cool bridge, and the man that I inherited my photography gene from took it… all good reasons for it to be a personal favorite.

I’ve waited to post this until today because this blog is officially 1 year old (as of yesterday), and somehow it just seemed fitting.  One year ago, I introduced the world to our spoiled little puppy, Zoe (check her out here!), and I hope you’ve enjoyed all of the posts since.

Thanks for your support… here’s to another great year!

Enjoy Coca-Cola… and Yellow Button Poms

IMG_6675aa wmI am Loving my new Coca-Cola “vase.”  I was at the grocery store and couldn’t resist these happy little Yellow Button Pom flowers… I had to celebrate it finally being Spring here in South Carolina!  But naturally I came home to realize all of our vases were way too large for my small bouquet.  Solution!  Coca-Cola to the rescue!  I knew that adorable metal Coca-Cola bottle would come in handy.  I was so pleased with how it turned out, I decided it justified a little photo shoot.

And of course once I started with the Coca-Cola bottle, I wanted to continue the fun.  I love the look of the Yellow Button Poms with my Zinger Brau Root Beer bottle as well!  (oh, and in case you haven’t heard… Zinger Brau Microbrewery here in Columbia, South Carolina makes the BEST beer I’ve ever had!!  Ask me how to get some!!!)IMG_6689a wm IMG_6680a wmHope you are now inspired to go out and celebrate Spring too!  Happy Friday!

 

“Find Your Eternity in Each Moment.”

“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.”
– Henry David Thoreau

Perseverance.

View from the Rowboat

Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.
