Starred by Me, Take 1

So, with the Google Reader, if you aren't familiar... You load your blogs that you like to read into the reader and when someone posts something new from those blogs, it lets you know.  When they come through, along the bottom, you have the options to star them, like them, share them, share them with a comment, email them, or ad tags.  I'm usually a fan of the first 5 options.  I don't know that I've ever added a tag but I'm HUGE fan of starring them.

I thought it would be fun to go back and look at a few things that I've stared.  In doing this, I found out that I've starred 1,805 items/posts/notes since September 8, 2008.  So, as much as I would like this to happen in one post, I'm going to have to refrain because I can already tell there are going to be a lot that I'm going to want to share and I'm going to run out of time if I post in just one. 

Plus, with NaBloPaMo who wouldn't love to see a few more posts generated from this one idea!

1. My first item that I starred, out of all of the 1,805 items was Miss Jan and her post about the CountryLiving Fair that came to Columbus in 2008. 

2. Next was this post by Starry Night's Journal {which I now remember is blocked}.  I just thought this nursery inspiration was just so sweet.

3. Next was when Jill from "homemade by jill" was posting FROM the Martha Stewart show.  I thought this was SO cool!!!

{I find myself, a lot of the times, starring items that are inspiration for home projects or crafts that I would someday love to have time to do or create}

4. I'm a fan of windows.  I always have been.  This post by Life is Beautiful just made to think about all the options you have with just a window.  I have a painted window in my house that I love right now but these made me thing of other options that might be fun to create.  Now if I only had some windows....

5. Then there is always some love for Etsy... Lovely Fall Days, EtsyMom Halloween, Etsy :: Crowns and I'm Bleeding Red.  Keep in mind, these are just for the month of September in 2008.  There will be more of these to come, I'm sure of it!!!

As I said on top, I have to break them up in order to get them all in... so here's a start!  Look for one next week that is full of {just a few} photographers that I've found and love....

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
