Happy Birthday Barron!

the birthday boy...

I celebrate the day you were born.

You are a dream come true.

It's in the way you love,
the way you see things,
the way you make us laugh,
the way you cut a rug,
the way you show kindness, patience, and compassion...

It's in how you can make the smallest things a beautiful adventure,
how you are so supportive to those around you,
how you stand up for what you know is true,
and how brave you are,
and how you know how to make the worst days seem manageable....

It's about your integrity,
your sense of humor,
your sensitivity,
your strength,
your willingness to grow,
your incredible heart....

It's all these things and a hundred things more
that make you unlike anyone I have ever met.

Happy Birthday my Love!
Im the luckiest girl in the world to get to share this life with you...

Reality Blogging.

my pal, Donk.

it's easy to do.
you begin reading other's blogs
and you see how beautiful, cool, and successful their lives are ~
and instead of being inspired,
you end up feeling like a totally dull and boring loser.

hopefully you are able to take a step back and realize most folks are not going to
post something about the less charming side of things (let's face it, it's a bit more fun to write about the DELISH PIE we just shared with our BEAUTIFUL FRIENDS at an AMAZING CAFE, then it is to write about the pile of bills on the counter or the dirty dishes in the sink)... and these blogs are just a snipit's of people's lives. So keep that perspective.

but, for the sake of reality and pure honesty,
im going to share my less charming list with you today.

*im not having lavender tea and buttered toast this morning.
its a glass of diet coke and eating dry lucky charms out of a mug.

*the one friend i see most on a regular basis is not an artist and prefers peppermint candy over fresh greens. (see above picture..yes. that's him)

*i pick my hair products by what smells best, and these days, it's Finesse, and it's not sold at Whole Foods.

* i beagn re-doing a room in our house but im now weeks into trying to remove four layers of wallpaper and im so annoyed that ive just shut the door to that room and am using it for storage. and if i dont get going on some of this laundry, it is going to become a new closet to hide stuff in when company comes over.

*one of the things i had to do at work last night is clean up a smushed snicker bar chunk that had been stepped on and smeared all over the gym floor.

*yoga? running? pilates? um no. my most recent form of exercise was from digging a trench in the side yard to stop the melting snow river from heading straight into the garage.

*instead of listening to This American Life while i work at the computer, i listen to El Debarge.

*today's outfit? mismatched socks, a really old, a knitted Bears hat and jeans that are total floods.

how's that for glamorous? :)

the bag....

what we carry...

its that bag you hold. the one you've been carrying around for so many years ~ the one that reminds of you of all your mistakes, all the rotten things you have ever said or done, all the wrong choices you have made....

how long are you going to tote that stuff around?
trust me, shame will never serve your soul.
it just bruises you more and keeps you from your true being.

forgiving yourself is just as important as forgiving others.

you have carried it long enough....

i just thought you should know...

it's time to drop that bag.

kelly rae, boa flown by jen lemen.....

sometimes, it's just not going to make any sense until you are much
further down the road...
and having doubts doesn't mean it's the wrong decision....
if the fear wasn't there, it wouldn't matter as much.

your soul is no less capable than anybody else's.
there is not a lid to the resources you have within.
and there is no fence that can ever stop you from reaching for support.

so giddy up now,
get moving.
