I have no words

I watched a service honoring a officer taken from his family. Michael Crain rest in peace. A family lost there daddy no more needs to be said! We are hoping they got the killer.
Hug your loved ones a bit tighter.

Our New Adventure

Happy Holidays Everyone,

I am just letting you know, I happily found it, yep it was lost. I have been going crazy trying to figure it out. Oh where oh where has it been.

What is it you ask ME, I have been in an up roar with me. I am trying to kick off a new business all by myself. I know I can do it, I just need to relax and pace myself.

This madness started about when the computer went out. Yep out gone by by. My recipes, my life , pictures you get it. Ok that was a big glitch, but we ordered one thru hubs work and it was delayed, ok I can write labels a bit longer.

That was the beginning of crazy town around here. I felt like I was out of control. Hum you think. Every Friday I take my yummy soaps and handmade stuff to our farmers market, the night before up too late. rinse repeat !

Last week was my breaking point I looked around and thought what are my reasons for doing this?
1. Of Course be Martha Stewart a good thing right
2. Make tons of bucks
3. Enjoy doing it
4. Love sharing what I know

Well three and four must have been on vacation, I was not enjoying it . I love my husband he supports anything I do. He always let’s me spread my wings, but when he say NO! I don’t argue.

I took a break, I searched my soul and found me again:) yeah for me. I know I can still make products, I need to because I love it. I can open online shop, attend a few boutiques. That works for me.

Happy Holidays everyone take time to smell the tree, hot cocoa, fine wine and enjoy your life!

How do you enjoy your life!

It would be great if Bucket List Publications could whisk people off to exotic locations or fly them around the world. It would be a dream come true to have unlimited funds and make even the most bizarre, unbelievable bucket list items come true for my readers, but the reality is that I’m not rich and I don’t have unlimited funds for Bucket List Publications… just yet. Believe me, if a had sponsorship from a travel agency or an airline, I would definitely be taking advantage of it myself. We currently don’t have funding to cover the costs of travel or transportation. I am determined, though, and I’ve been able to set up bucket list adventures for readers from around the globe. They just have to have reasonable, creative requests.

This is such a great find I love reading your site

Since I was a teenage girl, I imagined being married to the man of my dreams. Unlike most teenage girls, though, I didn’t focus on the wedding day or any one day in particular. My imagination didn’t run away with details of wedding dresses, flowers, bridesmaids, churches, invitations, locations, or accommodating guests. I didn’t envision a personally designed engagement ring fit for a princess or the perfect proposal, although I received both of those with an open heart. No, my thoughts and wildest imagination centered on having a partner who loved traveling the world with me, who loved to explore and create a beautiful, unique life with me, and who cherished the daily events that filled our lives with joy. Designing a nursery for our precious baby girl was one of the most  fulfilling  experiences of my life. We created a dream world together. The accumulation of all of my teenage and adult dreams was met…

In a second it can change

When I woke up my day went slow. Normal but slow tired but my mind was full of stuff. We had been to a great weekend with friends. NASCAR in Las Vegas fun!

Life is precious and so is driving I drove up the canyon yesterday not paying attention, and it happened!
A little gravel in the road and bam fishtail. It was the quickest two seconds of my life. I spun that puppy right around. No one was hurt. The car was fine. But in this short post I hope I help someone realize how important it is to focus. I get to enjoy another day.
Thank you Jesus for taking the wheel.

Ps I wrote a whole piece that disappeared . So if it shows up before I make it to my lap top sorry!
