Focus on Life - Week 12 {Observe the Curve}

First, I would like to apologize for not
making it to everyone's blogs last week.  
Things were crazy, my daughter is home for 
spring break and we were away last weekend.

Week 12 - Observe the Curve
We move, live and love in curves. Arms, legs and
bodies curve to propel us into the life around us.  Branches of 
trees curve to embrace the breeze.  Letters curve and form words.
Curves can keep things apart, hold things together to create a path.
We were to take this week and focus on all the different kinds of 
curves that surround us everyday.

This one was tough for me. But I
did take a few moments to observe what
was around me.

The curve of the tree in bloom.

The curves of my dashboard.

The curves of the hats blowing in the breeze.

The curves on this amazingly sparkly scrapbook paper.
Seriously, I want Dansko clogs made from this.
This picture does not do it justice!

But these curves (no pun intended)
are what are spring is all about!
The boy is playing JV!

Please hop on over to see Sally's blog
and what curves everyone is sharing!

Thank you, Sally, for encouraging us 
to take a moment!

Focus on Life - Week 11 {The Possibilities are Endless}

new beginnings,

New flowers, a sign of spring.

Beautiful pink tree blooms.

Stairs - where do they lead???? Could be fun.

A construction site - what is being built?
Amazing shops
An amusement part

All are filled with the possibility of fun, greatness, 
success and joy. 

I hope your day is filled with possibilities today!

Please go and visit Sally's amazing blog
and see what possibilities are out there.

(ps - these were all taken with my iPhone on my lunch walks)

Focus on Life - Week 10 {All Wrapped Up}

I will admit, this had me stumped, for the longest time!
Sally gave us both the verb and noun definations
for the word, still stumped.
I know that there is no right or wrong,
so here goes!

wrapped in my favorite coat,
wrapped in the snow!
I saw this in my mind with the snow forecast.
Set the shot up and had my trusty
second shooter click away.
Knowing that I dislike having my picture taken
(weaker word than how I really feel....)
I have to say -
Please visit Sally's blog to see how
everyone else is wrapped up.

Focus on Life - Week 9 {Knock, Knock}

Can you believe that it has been 9 weeks already?
I can't, but I can say this,
I am loving these weeks.
I look forward to seeing what Sally sends 
as our prompts! I can't wait for them.

This week's prompt was to open
some doors and 
see what waits for us on the other side.

Did you go through a door that was a secret passage?
(you were adventurous)

Or a door that led into a cute house?
(yes I know the tree is in focus and the door is not, this
is what happens when you are driving, shhhh)

Or did you open the door to a house filled 
with joy, family and a few dogs?
(yes, that is me)

I did not go through any of these doors, 
for you see this week, 
this arrived.

This envelope allowed me to open these doors!

(the front of the Washington National Cathedral)

Not physically, but metaphorically.

My doors were huge, inspiring, and awesome.
I love what is on the other side!

This spurred me into action!

(please click and let me know, honestly, what you think. 
it is absolutely a work in progress!)

That little piece of paper, my business license,
unblocked my brain. I didn't realize
how frozen I had been.
Things are moving, flowing and I am creating.
Getting legal documents and forms in order.
I even ordered my business cards!

I am now convinced that Sally must have a crystal ball! 

Her weekly prompts have been
so timely and insightful for me!

Please hop on over to Sally's blog and see what doors 
everyone else opened and went through.

I can't wait for next week! I hope your adventure
is a wonderful one.
