more reasons than usual doesn’t hurt

It’s no secret that I love October. Between my birthday and Halloween, how could I not? Even if you’re not into the dark, bloody, scary side of Halloween, there are all sorts of cute bits out there to help you get in the mood. Plus its the perfect time of year to break out colors you might not otherwise wear, like purple and black…or orange…or just go a teensy bit goth. This is the perfect time to experiment with your look, cuz if you hate it or other people don’t react well, you can just say its a costume, right? There’s so much fun stuff out there right now, I can’t imagine not shopping during October. Let’s face it, most of us don’t need an excuse to shop, but having even more reasons than usual doesn’t hurt either. *winks*
Today is super busy for me, so I’m not writing a ton. I wish you all a wonderful weekend and an awesome October!!

My Favorite Time of the Year

It’s my favorite time of the year, not only is my birthday on the 6th, but my favorite holiday is on the 31st. I realize its not a worldwide holiday and it must seem absolutely bonkers to areas that do not celebrate Halloween or Hallows Eve. However, I absolutely love all the cutesy pumpkins and ghosties. I also love the ghoulish things and all the scary movies! So, I present to you my first cute Halloween decor post. Naturally, if you remove all the Halloween stuff, you still have a lovely sitting area, but we’re not going to do that just yet…we still have 26 days to go!! *squeals*

Dragonflies

Ever since I was a little girl, dragonflies have brought me comfort. I remember my friends were terrified by them. Their name alone does seem a bit ominous. However, I was always fascinated by them. Their beautiful quad wings and the iridescent sheen of their bodies almost hypnotized me. Of course, I also thought they were related to fairies. *laughs* The thing is that no matter how bad things were in my life, the moment I saw a dragonfly I felt like God was telling me that everything was going to be alright. While I no longer believe in God, I do very much believe that everything is going to be alright whenever I’m surprised by a dragonfly…whether a real one or not. To this day, they continue to bring me comfort. It’s probably the only insect to ever bring me comfort…lol.

Some goodies!

It would seem that I’ve been bitten by the decor bug again. I’m sure it will pass, it always does. I’ll be back to cranking out fashion pics hand over fist in no time. For now, here’s what I’m serving up today. A magical Easter feast in the park? I dunno man, I just wanted to decorate this table with some of the goodies at Bloom, okay? Why are you giving me the third degree? GAH! *laughs* Yeah, this is very much like a conversation I have with myself.
Anyway…have a good look, everything you see (except background foilage) is from Bloom or TLC (which I now own, in case I haven’t mentioned that). HA! Listen…it’s late…*looks at the clock*…ok, it’s late somewhere! All I know is that I’m tired and feeling exceptionally goofy tired.

Some goodies!

Drunk on Christmas…just like Grace!

This song made think of my friend, Grace….she jokes about drinking in order to put up with her family. Now let’s hope she doesn’t kill me for this…LOL

Christmas is a time, a special time of year
With peace and joy and happiness and, wonderment and cheer
Opening your presents underneath the tree
And spending countless hours with your family

That’s why I’m drinking drinking drinking
I’m gonna drink all day
I’m coming home for Christmas and my family’s insane
Just got to make it through the day
And there’s no other way
I’m gonna get drunk, drunk, drunk on Christmas

Drunk on Christmas...just like Grace!

The Clearest Summer

“Another secret of the universe: Sometimes pain was like a storm that came out of nowhere. The clearest summer could end in a downpour. Could end in lightning and thunder.”

Because of her

I am a complete sucker for all thing tea set related. I’m absolutely sure that this is my mother’s fault. She collected tea pots for years. Sadly, they were all destroyed in a hapless storage accident. She actually blamed me for their demise, but I would never have done something so horrid. Now, as a result of her love for teapots and because of my love for her….I find myself loving teapots, too. Plus, there might be a story about her singing “I’m a little teapot” that I will save for another time. *smiles*

Do we really want to hurt each other?

I don’t know if its as present in other forms of social media as it is on Facebook, but it’s there that passive-aggressive behavior seems to thrive in the forms of elusive memes mysteriously aimed at the poster’s offender. However, this is not the only place or form of said behavior. It’s also exhibited by avoiding people and repeatedly making up reasons to avoid particular individuals as a way of expressing distaste for certain people. I’m pretty sure we’ve all done that. These behaviors are often destructive, but odds are that we all are guilty of this at one time or another. With a little research and a bit of work on ourselves, we can learn to understand the causes and how to properly deal with our emotions. In doing so, we can become mentally healthier and reduce hurting those we love. At the end of the day, do we really want to hurt each other? I know I don’t.
