Keepin it real

It’s not in my nature to be really serious all the time, I find that it strangles me. I hope that I can show you my humorous side at times too. If you’ve ever visited my other blog you will see a side of me that is real too. I try to find humor in most days of my life, for if I didn’t I would surely curl up in the corner and die….. That’s why I like “keepin it real”….wills-soccer-head.jpg

This week has been a trial of sorts, not for me, but for my Son Will. He had 4 impacted wisdom teeth removed. His poor face is swollen the size of a soccer ball(well maybe not that big). I have been taking care of him.

It’s also my Grand Daughter Bella’s first Birthday Sunday, So I will be baking her a cake. If you are just meeting me, You don’t know that I am a cake decorator , you will have to visit Sugar Queen’s Dream and see! to see a few of my cakes go here. She loves Dora the Explorer so that will be somewhere on the cake.Princess Bella

Isn’t she beautiful. When I look at her I know the life I’ve had to live is one that in the ends has been filled with gifts…. Here’s another picture of her digging in her toy box, She has really grown this past year. At Sugar Queens Dream you can watch her grow up, FracasBellas toys introduced me and my Grand Daughter on her blog last year….

I have another friend that has helped keep me here and on track, her name is Jackie, she Authors “The Painted Veil” . If you would like to be inspired with love and happiness with an occasional dose of spice visit my friend. She has endured abuse in her life too and has overcome it. Jackie has been encouraging me ever since I started this blog to keep moving forward. I love her for that, You can’t know unless you’ve lived it, how hard this is to rebirth and start over. I posted some really great posts this week at SQD, go take a look. Visit my blog roll friends and you will meet some of the most beautiful people ever!

Having 2 Blogs is so much more work than I EVER thought it was. Period! I am trying to keep up the pace and I am all about keepin it real….

Have a really great weekend and remember always: love the one you’re with….YOU
