Coffee Creed

Coffee promises a jolt of caffeine which is seen

Because I can more easily move and grove
Sweet magic in a cup when I need woken up

And my happy place giving me a happy face

Strung Together

IMG_0393

Tangled up in you
Woven into the very fabric of my soul
You hold my heart
One pull on the thread and I’ll unravel
Intertwined lives
Forever we will be two parts of a whole
Delicately stiched
Our names embroidered in the heavens
Patterns of love 

~by Mac

“Love forms bonds, like strands of yarn.
Like yarn, those bonds can be fragile, or
get tangled. But when they’re kept and
cared for, they can bridge any distance”

The Morning Buzz

coffee

“Your prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “give/given/giving.” Begin your post with one of those words. Bonus points if you end your post with one as well.”

Given that it is Saturday I thought perhaps I would join in on the #SoCS. Today is to be a busy one. There is neighborhood yard sale just down the street from us. We’ve plans to go, but woke up to find that it is only 35F outside! Brrr! It is suppose to warm up to a cool 64F today, with lots of sun. But, I am hesitant to venture out just yet on this cold morning. Good thing I have my coffee!

Hubby and I also have plans to go on our weekly date to the movies. It is something that we mutually enjoy and have a nice theatre in the area that does $5 tickets! Perhaps lunch or a bucket of popcorn will be had as well.

Then, I will finish the day preparing for a two day trip. Tomorrow my best friend and I will be off to Charleston, SC for some girl’s time. I have never been there and being it is her number one favorite city, she is very excited about giving me a tour. I’ll be bringing along my camera, of course, and hope to have some photos to share with y’all. 

Happy Saturday to everyone, and be sure to give me a shout out and let me know what you’re up to this weekend!

Give and Take

Pulling from my vault, one of my favorite pieces… “Give And Take”

Southern By Design

34885-giving-give-1200w-tnWe can spend all of our life searching for fame and fortune
Looking into the wrong places to find our love and emotion
But in the end all that it will come down to is this one thing
Don’t look for what you are given but what you can bring©

Creating a Photograph vs. Taking a Photograph

As someone trying to improve my photography skills, I found this to be a great article!

The Daily Post

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”


— Elliott Erwitt

Who this post is for: Aspiring photographers or anyone who wants to learn how to take more creative photographs. No photo-editing software is required, just a desire to learn and experiment with your camera!

The world offers no shortage of amazing subjects and experiences to photograph. In 2017, it’s estimated that people will take nearly 1.2 trillion photos around the world. Many of these photos will be simple snapshots—photos defined as informal, taken quickly or spontaneously, and sometimes without thorough consideration of composition. In many cases, that’s all a situation calls for, but for many subjects it’s often prudent to dig a…
