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,
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)
