No pep in my step and no zip-a-dee in my doo-dah…I hate Mondays! ~Mac
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
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
Forever we will be two parts of a whole
Our names embroidered in the heavens
Patterns of love
“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”

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.

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

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…

Well, as many of you know I go by Mac, which is loosely based on my last name. My Irish heritage well, I come by it honestly…through marriage and amazing luck. But give me corned beef and cabbage, color me green, by blarny don’t forget the liquor and of course, “Kiss me…I’m sort of Irish!”
Happy St. Patrick’s Day ya’all!
The mind is such a beautiful and terrible thing…
In every direction
Flying into space
And sinking into oceans
In depths of sadness
And waves of emotions
My mind drags me high
And sinks me low
It attacks with violence
And loves with passion
It drives me crazy
And keeps me sane
My mind is my enemy
And also my friend
My only company
Surrounded by solitude
My mind is a kite
Flying in the sky
And an anchor

Hey everyone! So, I’ve been taking a bit of a break from daily blogging, as some may have noticed. Don’t worry, I’ll be back in full swing soon!
In other news, I’ve FINALLY signed up for SnapChat! I know, I know it’s a surprise it took me so long. For someone who takes so many selfies and photos you’d think I’d have gotten on board sooner. Well, I’m giving it a try, as so many friends use it. Look for me at MacInBlonde, and add me if you’d like. But, for the record, I’m not sure I know what I’m doing yet!
Finally, I am looking for some topic ideas for my blog. Leave me a comment if you have one to share.
Keep the coffee hot and ready, I’ll be back soon! Love, Mac
