How often do we put our dreams and desires on hold for other people? It seems that for many of us we have done that in the past and for many we still do it. I have been in conversations lately with multiple people who like me are beginning realise that that is how we… Continue reading Be You! Sparkle & Shine
What Really Matters to you?
Today’s Daily Prompt made me smile.. “Zoo”.. and my first thought was how sometimes people say that life can be a zoo. What does that even mean for you?

Try and Try Again
My first attempt at lemon meringue pie was successful and unsuccessful all at once!! The crust and the filling was easy enough to do and tastes amazing BUT the egg whites just didn't want to play ball! Definitely something to attempt again!

I have been pondering for a little while whether I should start writing again. I used to write regularly, not just journal, but share my thoughts with friends and others who were interested and I stopped.
