Upon the Stars

She was told that whatever you’re thinking and feeling when the clock strikes midnight, bringing in the new year, is what you will be thinking about and feeling for the majority of the upcoming year. She wanted to feel at peace. She wanted to feel loved. She wanted to be warm and filled with hope. She knew the perfect spot for her hope filled wishes. She grabbed her champagne and sat upon the rocks, listening to the sea rush upon the rocks. She looked to the sky and began wishing upon the stars.

The Fullness of Life

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. ~ Melody Beattie

Make it so

I survived Christmas and on that day, we tore down the decorations as that has become our tradition. We’re super excited to put up the decorations on Thanksgiving weekend, but the time Christmas rolls around we are completely over all the red and green decor. The lovely Santas are packed away and all the ornaments that survived are stuffed back into boxes. It is quite an adventure for the animals. This also comes with a new arrangement for our living room. We like to start the new year with a fresh look and feel to the main room.
Tomorrow is New Year’s Eve and I am definitely ready for the New Year as this will be the first year in many that I am approaching a brand new year with a great attitude. I’m filled with hope. I am positive that 2020 is going to be a better year, because I am determined to make it so.

No Matter

”Life has taught me that you can’t control someone’s loyalty. No matter how good you are to them, doesn’t mean that they will treat you the same. No matter how much they mean to you, doesn’t mean that they’ll value you the same. Sometimes the people you love the most, turn out to be the people you can trust the least.” – Trent Shalton

Raise A Glass

I’ve had this scene set up for this picture for about a week, I finally got the girls pinned down. Then it only took them three hours to finally get pose ready. Lo & behold, we take the picture and now Stef moves quickly. She finishes editing and posts hers straight away. You can see her version here, she did such an amazing job! It took me a bit longer as I’m still learning photoshop, but I’m finally happy with the result.
We genuinely had a blast, but I’m pretty sure I’m the only one in this photo wearing the outfit that I actually picked out for NYE. *laughs* These girls keep me in stitches and I can’t think of a better way to bring in the New Year than laughing with my squad. So, to everyone celebrating the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020, I raise a glass. Happy New Year to you all and I sincerely hope that this year brings us all the love and laughter  we all desire. ♥

Principal Difference

“If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and man.”

She didn’t want to be here

She stood in the doorway, smoking her cigarette. She barely noticed the cold, but it was enough to keep her from crying. She inhaled the crisp cool air deep into her lungs, exhaling slowing through her mouth. She didn’t want to be here. Socializing. Explaining to everyone that her marriage had failed. Thanking them for the compliments. Thanking them for their condolences. Yes, he is a jerk. Yes, she is better off. Yes, she does seem to be handling it well. She doesn’t even bother explaining how depressed she’s been for the last three years. She doesn’t explain that reliving it over and over was pure hell. She simply excuses herself and goes out for a smoke. She looks at her car and thinks to herself, “Next cigarette, I’m going home.”

Loving you is like holding smoke

Loving you is like holding smoke
The counters dry, become a joke
I can’t stop wanting you
And all these things that you do
You’re like an anchor on my soul
The fear of death running through my bones
It’s so cool wind of you
I’m holding onto something new

Our hope’s gone up in smoke

This indecision’s got me climbing up the walls
I’ve been cheating gravity and waiting on the falls
How did this come over me, I thought I was above it all
Our hope’s gone up in smoke, swallow your crown

Choke! On a kiss, I thought I’d save my breath for you
Choke! On a kiss, I thought I’d save my breath for you
Give me some rope I’m coming loose, I’m hanging on you
Give me some rope I’m coming loose, I’m pulling for you now
Give me some rope I’m coming out of my head, into the clear
When you go I come loose
~Foo Fighters – Rope

Bittersweet Memories

As she hung the last of the new ornaments on the tree, she closed her eyes and got lost in her memories. She remembered their first Christmas together and all the traditions they started that year. It had been years since she could even bring herself to decorate for the holiday again, much less get rid of the ornaments that proclaimed their first Christmas and every year after that. He has a new family now. He will be starting new traditions and she is left with bittersweet memories.
