Thank you, patience, for not going all Hulk Smash or Vader force on the kiddo who accidentally dropped half a box of cereal on the floor. Nope, I didn’t even raise my voice. I grabbed some ornaments and started taking pictures. I know… whoa!

Thank you, xenophobia fighters.  Peace & Love, always!!

Thank you, Friday!!

*** Thank you, Lowanda, for sharing kindness! Lowanda made me incredibly happy with her sweet acts of kindness, and to top it off she challenged her kiddos at school to join in. Which is why Lowanda is the Kindness Challenge winner. I totally forgot to share that last week. If you don’t follow Lowanda yet please do. This woman has a heart of gold and a smile that will light up the darkest room. Sunshine. 🙂

    1. 🙂 Thank you, Nina! Some days I amaze myself with my patience others days, I could use some work.
      Thanks for pinning the scrub!!

    1. She is! I actually got to meet her in Georgia! Crazy, right? Considering we both lived in South Carolina at the time, I lived in Mount Pleasant and you know where she lives. 🙂 We hit it off there at Bloggy Boot Camp and the rest is history- I think I used that right 😀

  1. I am SO happy your new school has more community!!! I’m all about community and still trying to find mine here. Also, props for getting a spot with Touched Magazine!! ?

    1. I’m still trying here. I haven’t made any “friends”, but since I’m an art docent at the school I do interact with other adults, and that’s nice. 🙂
      And thank you, ma’am!

  2. Congrats on your opportunity to share DIY posts at Touched Magazine. That’s really exciting 🙂 It’s great that your kids new school is better than your thier old one. It’s awful when you have to deal with your child being at a school that’s not a good fit. My son is homeschooled but when he was three he had speech therapy through the school district and it was awful.

    1. Thank you, Sonya!! I’m excited to share more DIY posts, I love creating things. 🙂
      I’m so happy this school is so much more positive. They aren’t holding kids back, which is awesome because I feel like bored kids can sometimes turn into not-so-well-behaved kids. I didn’t like the way things were going down in their old school in SC, so I pulled them out and homeschooled. By the way I loved homeschooling!

  3. Oh my freakin’ gosh! Thank you Dean! You just made a girl feel real good after a long, tiring week. I’m thankful for you my friend and for always being so supportive! Thanks for brightening my day this morning! You made my heart sing!

    1. 🙂 Awww shucks!! You’re such an amazingly sweet woman, I’m so fortunate to call you friend. 🙂 I’m glad you’re living a life of kindness and sharing that passion with others- we need more of that in this world!

  4. I was in Touched Magazine last holiday season! Probably a year ago about now. They’re awesome!
    I’m cracking up about Ben Carson pronouncing it like hummus. haha!
    The happy mail looks awesome!

    1. I loved that you were in Touched Magazine too 🙂 I’m trying to diversify, I need some more writing gigs. 🙂
      Oh my gosh I was totally laughing out loud (for real) when I heard the hummus thank you note, too.
