Closing the Week


Just two months from today, I will be in Paris for the very first time.  I'm extremely excited.  I can't wait.  I've never been to Europe so you can imagine the measure of my anticipation.

As I look forward to September, I find that there is still life happening around me.  A lot of life is like this...a looking forward to the future and forgetting to enjoy the life we have right now.  It's so easy to do.  I struggle with it all the time.  But I must remember that while the future is full of possibilities, the present is full of hope.  And without hope those possibilities will never come.

I so ofter just expect to wake up one morning and find that my entire life has changed.  Like in The Little Princess when Shirley Temple wakes up to find untold treasures from her beloved India.  Yet, life is not like that at all.

We become.

In everything we do,
we think,
we say,
we become our future.

As my weekend begins, I'm choosing to become.  To become more than I am and to enjoy today.

Here's what happened on the blog this week

I cooked up an Old Fashioned Shrimp Boil and I also crafted with some sea shells.  They're now my favorite color: gold.  I wrote about writing stories with our lives and sharing them with other people.  And, on top of all that, I introduced one of my favorite companies, Noonday.  I love their products, but I also love their purpose.


Share with me your favorite post for the week.  Leave a link in the comments and I'll check it out.

  1. You will LOVE Paris!!! It is a busy but romantic city full of history and art.
    Some of my favorite places/recommendations for a first-timer include a good walking tour to hear history of the beautiful buildings ( I loved this one: http://www.newparistours.com/ ); picnic on Champ de Mars looking towards Eiffel Tower; "BatoBus" hop-on-hop off boat tour, the Marais district (Victor Hugo's house and Place des Vosges); Louvre and if time, Musee d'Orsay (which has impressionist and modern art); and explore Montmarte area! Pay the fee to climb all the way to the bell tower of Notre Dame (best view!!) and just walk along the Seine River at sunset and stop at a cute cafe to people-watch from an outside table
