Door closes, Open that window.

Sometimes it may feel like a door gets closed on us when we're headed out into the world. 
It can be a harsh reality, that not everything goes as we wish.
But I've learned that if I keep my head high, my smile bright, and know that there must be an open window or other doors leading to a better path for me,
and it will all be alright.
The program I wanted to attend at a certain school was cancelled, because of funding,
 and that was really hard on me. 
I thought I had finally figured out my next direction for my life, but alas, 
I'm still in search of that perfect path.

 The view from my mom's house helps me remember
 that tomorrow the sun will shine, 
and will set, 
and that life is so beautiful and joyful, 
and too short to not soak in the good
and release the bad.

“And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair”

 Walking in the beach in Pensacola - on the search for my perfect path.

Summer Lovin'

 Summer in the Pacific Northwest is the best time of year here. We have been extremely lucky this July to have sunshine almost everyday. Today is the first day it seems a bit dreary outside, but it is still so warm, and not raining yet. 
My days are filled with family. My niece Roslyn is the cutest thing, growing up way too fast. Her 6 months birthday was on July 4th. Its also amazing to see how fast our puppies are growing up as Vinny, my Maltipoo is almost 2 years old!! 
My how the time flies.
Hope you are enjoying your summer.

A yummy Vegan Minestrone I made in my new crockpot.

They all must play with the same stick.
