Back Yard Wall Reveal



Hi Friends,

Well, It only took my a couple of months
With a full time job and life I only had a few hours a week
To work on the wall

This is what my back yard pool area looked like last summer

Nice, but nothing special


I came to a point last weekend
That I was just done
Even though I didn't feel like 'IT' was done

I may do more work on it next fall
However, for this year
This is where I will be spending most of my free time
This summer

I'll let the photos do the talking












You are ALL welcome to come swim
Or just sit in my little piece of paradise

It's Almost Time



Hi Friends,

I'll post here the same thing that I posted on
Instagram and Facebook

I believe there comes a point with every project that you reach your threshold of tolerance. 
I believe I've reached that point with my mural wall,
Whether it is complete or not I am finished with it. 
I hope to have the reveal Monday night!



Remember
Disclaimer!!!
 
I am NOT and artist
I have NEVER taken an art class
Nor a painting class

And painting a mural of this size
Is HARD work

I'm just a girl
Who was tired of staring at a blank wall
While enjoying my backyard pool

So when I do reveal the mural
Please be kind and remember
Challenging yourself to doing something new
Is A Good Thing!!!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!!!

A HUGE Thank You



Hi Friends,

I just wanted to send out a 
HUGE Thank You
To each of you that left comments
On my last post


Thursday morning
As I read the comments to my boy
He and I had tears in our eyes

Your words were so very encouraging to him
Which in turn encouraged my heart

I think he was concerned that everybody
Would tell him to cut his hair
But as I read the comments to him
He smiled more and more

His long hair is so much a part of who he is
And he just loved having so many friends
Support his decision to have long hair

I may be able to encourage him to trim it
Just to help it continue to stay healthy
But I do realize it IS his hair and his choice

My husband and I had two rules while the boys were growing up

1. NO TATTOOS
2. NO PIERCINGS


They were always told they could do whatever they 
wanted to do with their hair
It would grow back
And believe me
They did crazy stuff
Dye, Bleach, Long, Short, Shaved, Permed

Someday I'll put together a fun post
With some of their Best hair styles

But for today
Thank you
You made my boy So Happy

Oh, and BTW:
My oldest got tattoos once he was married :(
Still no piercings- Yay
My youngest still lives at home
No tattoos or piercing :)
 

Blessings for a Super Weekend!!

What Is YOUR Thought?



Hi Friends,

Here's just a quick Question

Below is my youngest son
Oh my, if you knew his story
You'd be in tears at how much God has worked in his life
And how much of a miracle it is
That he will be 30 in just a few weeks

Yet,
Tonight I just have a question
 

He LOVES his long hair
I've gotten used to it
But I must admit I don't LOVE it the way he does

I have suggested that he get it trimmed a bit
But he is adamant that he doesn't want to cut it
 

He's been grown it for about 4 years

What is YOUR thought

It doesn't mean he'll do anything different with it
It just means: I'm asking the question

I'd love your honest opinion
Even if you don't think I want to hear it - LOL

I mean, he Is almost 30

OMGoodness - Where does the time go??

Sometime soon
Maybe his birthday
I'll share part of his story

Anyway
Have a super Evening
I'm looking forward to reading your answers

Blessings to you all!
