Easter Ideas!

Recently I stated that I am going to enjoy life a bit more and not blog just for the sake of blogging. Well, I have done that and am really enjoying spending time doing other things that I love.

I have been spending time with my family, reading books and magazines, trying new recipes, volunteering at my kid's schools and I have also found a new on-line passion....Pinterest!

I love being able to find gorgeous and inspirational pictures and pin them to a virtual pin board! Here is a snapshot of my Christmas pin board.

I have also found so many wonderful ideas, projects and recipes for Easter via Pinterest. Have a look at these!

Isn't it amazing that there are so many people out there in blogland sharing all of their talents and gifts with the world! We really are lucky to be part of such a sharing and caring community!

I hope that you all enjoy a truly blessed and joyful Easter full of happiness and love and happy times with your loved ones.

Happy Easter to all of my dear Blogging friends!

Best wishes always,

I couldn't stay away....

Thank you so very much to you, my dear blogging friends, for your gentle and loving words of support and friendship. Your advice and wisdom has helped me more than you can imagine.

When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don't adjust the goals, adjust the action steps. 

Since taking this little blogging break I realized that I was not blogging for the reasons that inspired me to blog in the first place. When I started my blog it was for me to give thanks for the people and things that make me happy...

For each new morning with its light,For rest and shelter of the night,For health and food, for love and friends,For everything Thy goodness sends. Ralph Waldo Emerson

I started this blog to take just 5 minutes out of my day to reflect on my many blessings and to find beauty in the every day....

The first step is to find out what you love – and don’t be practical about it. The second step is to start doing what you love immediately, in any small way possible.

Aunt Amelia inspired me to believe that it takes courage to make bold changes in one's life and Mya helped me realize that breaking big projects into small steps makes them do-able.

Growth is an erratic forward movement: two steps forward, one step back. Remember that and be very gentle with yourself. 
Julia Cameron 

Many of you have helped me realize that a journey of a thousand miles starts with one small little baby step.

Baby step by baby step, you have what you need right now to start moving in the direction of your happiest dreams.

After my holiday at the beach with my family and, more specifically, after watching a stunning sunrise, I had my blogging "aha moment!" I decided that I really do want to blog but from now on I will be doing it on my terms! 

Ideals are like stars: you will not succeed in touching them with your hands, but like the seafaring man on the ocean desert of waters, you choose them as your guides, and following them, you reach your destiny. Carl Schurz (1829 - 1906)

No more blogging just so I can join in with a linky party or Meme. No more blogging because of guilt. 

No more blogging unless I want to!

Your kind words made me realize that I have invested too much time, love and into this blog of mine to just abandon it completely......

Thank you for that!
Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul. Henry Ward Beecher

So, I guess I am saying that I am blogging again and I would be thrilled and very grateful if you could hang in there with me as I begin this new blogging journey!

Best wishes always,
