Self reflection after a month

I do not consider myself a great photographer or even a good one, but I do love every photo I have taken.  They may not be artistic, dramatic or beautiful, they are me.  I read that you should photograph yourself each month to see how you have changed within the year.  If you know me you know I would rather be taking the picture than be in it.  Since this little project of mine is to appreciate and remember here it goes….

A Good Mixtape Can Put You In The Right Mood

I have a very healthy obsession with music.  I am not even really sure how far it dates back, but I am pretty sure I inherited it from my parents.  It may have started with my obsession with the movie Grease, or my early cassettes of the Go-Go’s, but it has stuck with me for a good portion of my life.

For me, music is literally the soundtrack of my life.  There is nothing better than the feeling you get from a song that transports you back into another time, memories flooding in like water.  I can pretty much tell if I am going to like a song within the first 20 seconds, and I am always looking for new music.  So when I found out about this amazing little app called Shazam it was instant love!  How is this possible, is it magic???  Is there a team of people listening to each song captured?  Do they have a database that is the size of Rhode Island?  Who cares, IT ROCKS!!!

Ever since I took down my Christmas decorations my front door has been empty, longest in a quite some time.  I am not really ready for spring quite yet, so I decided to make a new wreath for Valentines Day.  I am not usually a big February 14th kind of person, but for some reason I was drawn to all the cute red and white items at Michael’s yesterday.

So after walking every aisle looking for some inspiration I finalized my idea and gathered up my supplies.

After several hours I finally had my finished product

I have to say that I love this little wreath, it may be one of my favorites I have made yet.  I love the little clothesline clips, they were the inspiration, and after all who does not want some Hugs and Kisses in their life!

5 words…

January is traditionally slow for retail stores, but in the buying department it is a whole different story.  This month means reviewing holiday business, year-end business and booking Fall 2012 orders.

5 words to sum up my week….catalogs, emails, spreadsheets, to-do lists, finished!!

Have an amazing weekend!

Good Advertising????

Advertising is a tricky business.  How do you reach all consumers the same?  How do you get them to buy your product?  Do you exemplify the benefits or the feeling it gives you?

This morning I saw this…

At first I thought it was cute and kind of funny.  Then the more I thought it made me start thinking that maybe I am spending too much on clothing.  Would it make me walk into this store and purchase a new outfit…doubtful.  But it did make me turn my car around, pull out my camera, take a picture and share it with you.  So in that sense I guess it did work!

Taekwondo and Bagels

Today was a super yucky day, weather wise.  The type of day that all you want to do is cuddle up inside.

My nephew has recently started taking taekwondo and I decided to venture out to watch him in action.

This smile made getting wet from the rain totally worth it!

Sunrise, 20,000 feet in the air

I always enjoy sunrise and sunset, but to see a sunrise from the airplane was a whole different story.  I can not describe the beauty and peace from seeing the sun rise above the clouds for the day.

Have an amazing day and take a little time to enjoy the sun!
