I’m always grateful for those in my life and my surroundings. BUT after keynote speaker Shawn Achor shared stories about his life and gave us tips on happiness I wanted to challenges myself to one of the tips her gave us. It’s an easy one that I will be doing here. So for the next 21 days I will be writing down 3 things I am grateful for. Hopefully this will boost my happiness even more <3
Del Taco fries.

The most important thing to remember about October is, it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Ladies please make sure you get your mammograms. Talk to your doctor if you feel something isn’t right with your breast. There is support everywhere.
Terrilyn, I don’t know if you will ever read this. I’m thankful daily you’re cancer free.
Look at my baby boy with his pink ribbon the.
Happy October Danigirl. Enjoy your spooky movies and your warm Starbucks. Have fun at school. Make good choices and when in doubt, always ask yourself WWMTD!!! What would Mike Trout do. Love you girl.
I have no idea where 15 years went. So cliche to say time flies when you’re having fun. But it’s so true. It’s been fun watching you grown up Danigirl.
Keep being that little girl that thinks your Tia can make anything! That spunky little girl that we all Love. Keep being fashion and Loving the world the way you do. Make good choices and when in doubt always ask yourself WHAT WOULD MIKE TROUT DO.
Let’s bring back socks and sandals for your Birthday!!!
I Love you Danigirl and I hope you have an amazing Birthday!!!
Happy World Giraffe Day <3
I know it’s only June 3rd but June gloom has really shown up. It’s been gloomy and I Love it. I wish our entire summer was gloomy, but I know it won’t be. It’s going to be a million degrees before we know it.
I had an uneventful weekend. I’ve been needing a lazy weekend and aside from making this cake
I’ll have to keep practicing on the drip part because it needs help LOL. Other than that. I’m proud of my cake.
Aside from showing off my cake I also wanted to tell you that…
Life is about learning to balance on one leg.
Because we don’t always land on both our feet.
Have a great week <3
I finally sat down to sew. It’s been so long time and I needed it. I made myself a zipper pouch using this fabric.
I had been wanting to make myself a pouch for a long time and just never got around to doing it. I Love sewing. It takes me back to when I would spend hours in the darkroom developing film or printing photos. To me they are so similar and I’m probably the only person that sees it that way.
I haven’t made one of these pouches in years and look at me, I sewed it wrong.
I feel like a rookie lol
It looks fine, but the zipper opening is on the right and it should have been on the left side. I’m still going to use it and next time I’m going to pay attention to what I’m doing.
Have a great week. Danigirl if you’re reading this, Tia Loves you.
As Mother’s Day is coming to an end, I can’t help but feel such emptiness in my heart. My first Mother’s Day without Tyson. People may say he was just a dog, but to me he was my baby. Like most moms I was there when he started dog obedience school. When he got and ear infection I had to make sure he took his antibiotics. When he had the stomach flu and he refused to eat out of his bowl, I hand fed him to make sure he ate. I like most moms rushed him to the hospital when his face started swelling because he was stung by a bee and he was allergic. I would cry like a baby when he would get his shots, the sad look in his eyes wondering why I let the vet poke him. Then there was the time he had a growth on his elbow. When the vet told me he had to do a biopsy because it could be cancer. CANCER? I wanted to fall to the floor and cry my eyes out. How could this be? I waited 3 days to get the results. The 3 longest days of my life. Then the vet called and told me my little guy was okay.
Oh Tyson I miss you so much. I Love you baby guy and the only comfort I have on days like this. Is knowing you’re with my dad now. Biting his ear and him playing with yours. Sitting right by him like you always did. Mom Loves you baby guy. Thank you for Loving me unconditionally.
Thank you for the beautiful friendship.
I miss you and I Love you.
