Serene Saturday ...


It is a cool, crisp weekend here in New England. The cooler weather is finally here, after having a very hot and humid Summer. I love this time of the year. I wish I could move somewhere that the weather is like this, year round. Just Beautiful!

When I came across this painting (and if anyone knows the artist, please let me know) I could not stop looking at. I had many questions while viewing it - Where is she? What is she thinking? How did she get up there? Is she praying for someone? Is she sending a birthday wish to a loved one (with the balloon)? I love wondering what some paintings are actually saying. I love where she is standing. I love the blue and grey sky that makes up the background. Do you find yourself asking these same questions?

Happiness is a Choice ...


How many of you know about these "Fortune Tellers"? 
We used to make these with pieces of paper when I was a kid. 
You would move them in and out depending on the what number you chose 
(the numbers would be where the letters are in this picture).
You would then have color names (Red, Green, Blue) inside to choose from,
you would count out the letters to see what secret message you would open for that person.
They would fold out from the inside of this shape shown above.
Just a fun childhood game I have never forgotten ...

My motto is:
We always have a choice
So this quote really spoke to me.

What is your motto?

Featuring Celine Dion on Music Monday ...


Celine. Just saying her first name and everyone knows who you are speaking of.

The first I heard "Where Does My Heart Beat Now", I knew I would become a Celine Dion Fan. I felt her voice had a range that was so unique and genuine.  Disney's "Beauty and The Beast" debut seemed to put her at the top of the charts and she only became more famous from there.

"It's All Coming Back to Me Now" was also a favorite of mine. "My Heart Will Go On" was a huge hit all over the world being one of the title tracks for the film "Titantic". "I'm Alive" and  "Because You Loved Me" are also popular favorites amongst fans among many others. 

Fans were able to enjoy Celine's Caesar Palace - Vegas Shows from 2003-2007. She took a break to enter back into the studio and to do her World Tour over the next few years. She is back  in Vegas this year and going forward for us to enjoy her a bit more.
