Why, hello spring

Spring has its way of quietly saying hello. It greets us with a warm smile, sweet music, and colorful scenes. Napping outside begins in spring (which baffles me why I have never bought a hammock..hmm)
Along with the flowers and colors, I also find that many others celebrate spring in their own way: Like DonnaLeeJewelry, featuring these Rose Mallow Earrings.
Or like luxedeluxe with a brilliant Corrine, purple rose and turquoise necklace.  
These two crafters definitely have the spring feel goin'.
If its not jewelry you're going for, then take a gander at these cute barrettes by jewllori. She's got the picnic theme happening with those polkas! I just love them!
With birds being lively and flowers being friendly, I encourage you to take a walk and notice all the God things around you. These creations didn't "just" happen --> they all were meant for us to enjoy; for us to become inspired and for all of us to truly see the wonderful work the Lord has made.
Glad you stopped by to enjoy this great change in our world! Hello spring .. I welcome you!!

Cinderella, ella, ella

(check out these pics - 1. the modern-day Cinderella, 2. My birthday cake, 3. An inspirational wedding cake.)

Cinderella is by far my most favorite princess. I believe the reason for this is her life and mine are parallel.
The beginning of my life was not such an easy one. My family and I never had enough. I worked and worked just to get by. I delayed any further education b/c of my duty to work for my family. I never had a car of my own. I never would be able to go to any fancy, classy restaurant. For birthdays, my family couldn't afford a party, so we never had one. We couldn't afford many gifts either. All we could do was spend time, eating an ice cream cake and singing 'happy birthday.' It was nice, though. Times like those show character and I believe my family is the best.

Apart from all this doom and gloom tales... let me tell you of a great testimony. Today, I am currently enrolled in college (tuition free - and loving it!), I am shopping for a new car (any price I want, but you know me -- miss responsible, so I am finding a bargain.), I have the best man in the whole world to call my own (Nathan darling), I have a sweet, loving, giving family who stands up for one another, and above all this, I have a Savior who made a promise to a little girl..."I will take care of you... your labor is not in vain." He is right. He has taken care of me... and for that, I am eternally grateful.

It's snowing again... yay

Snow, snow snow!
 I love the wonderful snow. Let's play out in the snow.
O no?! Why not in the snow?
Well, let's play in the rain.
O no?! Not in the rain?
Ok, let's play in the sludge..
o no? Not in the sludge?
Why not in the sludge, the rain, or the snow???

...Because, its not just snow, not just rain, and not just sludge... its all three, with is not a fun playtime for me!
