Halfway through 2016.

Today is the first day of the second half of 2016. This year is going by quickly. This is a year of change and adventure for me. When John and I signed the closing documents on January 7th and bought a house built in 1884, my world, as I knew it, changed. It has been [...]

National Camera Day.

Today is National Camera Day. It is a day that commemorates photographs, the camera, and their invention. I have been fascinated with cameras all of my life. My dad was a photographer. I loved visiting his studio and spending time in his darkroom. Watching a plain piece of paper become a priceless photograph was magic. [...]

Be there.

We are all going through something. We are all here together, in earth school. The best thing we can do to help each other, help those around us that are struggling, is just be there. Listen. I found this article which speaks to this. I hope you find it as informative as I did. Sometimes [...]

Wise words.

Someone sent this video to me. Wise, wise, wise little girl. vm0UNn7tJ5o Have love in your heart. Smile. Happy Monday.

It has been a journey.

John is in St. Louis this weekend, visiting his mama and his siblings. I had nothing to do last night, so I went to our fixer upper on 6th Avenue. Since we purchased the house on January 7th, not quite six months ago, we have been very busy. This is what the first floor kitchen [...]

Your words.

This was my blog one year ago today. “EVERYONE is going through SOMETHING. When you are talking with someone, whether it is your child, your parent, your sibling, your best friend or the stranger who is helping to bag up your groceries, REMEMBER they are going through something. Remember to be kind.” I don’t think [...]

Baby Olive Kay Tischler.

I am official a great aunt again for the tenth time. Her name is Olive Kay Tischler. When I saw her name it brought tears to my eyes. My mama, Kay Tischler, would be so proud. Olive is her second great granddaughter with her middle name. This one shares the last as well. It has [...]

Frick Park Slide.

John and I went out exploring a neighborhood on Saturday. We ended up near Frick Park. As we pulled up to the park I said, “I remember coming here as a child. I think there was a cement slide that was a lot of fun.” We began walking in the park and yes, it is [...]

Living a dream.

I saw this yesterday. That got me thinking. Am I living the life that I want? Most of us get from day to day, sometimes, moment to moment, doing what needs to be done. It isn’t always what we want to be doing. Do you have something on your mind that you have always wanted [...]
