Some pretty thoughts....

Just wanted to share some pretty thoughts from my Pinterest account....planning on a bigger post when my day's aren't quite so crazy. :)

Saturday, March 19, 2011


It's been on my mind quite a bit recently.

Due to circumstances and life happenings, I realize that I have taken a rain check from making any plans for life. :) That sounds a bit silly, doesn't it?
But it's actually true for me. Friend have heard me say "I stopped making plans awhile back".
I've just been kind of drifting along, amidst a busy schedule, grief, raising my beautiful children, etc.

I started reading this book recently, (a new blog post about that and the follow up book will be coming soon :) )
and it has given me a lot to think about.

I'm afraid that by not making any plans or having any new dreams, I've been allowing my time to be filled with aimless wanderings.
Don't get me wrong, there have been a lot of really great moments and life, although it's hard at times, is still really beautiful. :) I have a lot to be thankful for. :)

But I believe that life is meant to be nothing less than magic.

And that means that I should probably start deciding just exactly what it is that I want to see, accomplish, do for others and experience in this life.
Those are my thoughts on this Saturday night. :)

What's in the bag?...or, why my back hurts :)

Have you seen those "what's in your purse?" blog posts?
Well, when my friend Magan lifted my purse this weekend and said "Charin! What do you have in this thing??" I was reminded that it would be a really great time to clean mine out. :)
This is crazy, people.
Books (yep, reading all of them), bills, lip gloss, perfume, diapers, toys, work schedule (slightly blurred so that the creepy people out there can't read it)....and I didn't even show the mound of scribbled notes and contact information bits that were in there.
I really should clean my purse out more often. ;)
