It's a countdown!

Short catch up on the one week countdown to my son's wedding!   One week to get it all together!  I have to say that I am pretty pleased with the pace I have been keeping up with on the wedding preparation.  I am definitely not taking all the credit, just my to do list. :)  I made myself a pretty long  list and it seemed to grow daily!  Being the creative type, I just can't help myself from thinking of just one more thing that needs to be done.  I enjoyed every minute of my duties, besides that this is my baby we're talking about! ;)  So far I have taken picture of most of my prep work on my phone so that I could send them on to the Mother of the Bride and the Bride of course.  When I figure out how to get them off my phone I would love to share the process.  I really want to save that part for after the wedding anyway. :)
Escape from the Noise
So, for the past few weeks I stayed up late so that I could get my daily painting done.  I am learning so much by painting daily and can see surges of improvement along the way .  I am on a mission to be good at it , I just hope that I am not  too old to reach my goals!   
Hope everyone enjoys their long weekend!  Be safe,

Happiness

The sum of happiness is made up of a thousand details. A little kindness done one less fortunate gives the heart a beat of pleasure that no millinery or laces or jewels can possibly inspire.
To overcome prejudice is more satisfying than a ten-course dinner.
To subdue a difficulty and smother a selfish disire is to become strong and splendid.
If life is worth living at all, it is worth living in a state of progress and improvement.
If we moan and groan, filling the air with dissatisfaction and gloom, we can scarcely hope to partake of much contentment.
All you need is a good thump on the back by some cheerful soul who has faith in you, and promise to yourself that you will face your work and your worries cheerfully,-(Selected)
