Life Goes On

     SO... many of you have probably heard through Facebook and what not that our lovely home in Madison Park was hit by a drunk driver a few weeks ago.

After discussing and negotiating options, we decided it was best to end the lease due to the amount of time it would take to fix the property and it's unlivable conditions.

I am currently looking for a new home/townhome/apartment and have been living out of suitcases pretty much. Just when you think everything is going smoothly ..something typically has to come in and shuffle things up to keep you on your toes. I will say it generally makes me stronger after each trial I am put through which I have decided is okay with me. I mean we are suppose to grow and learn and become stronger each day so why not.

I recently purchased a floral scarf and who knew it had the power to make my whole day brighter. Sometimes you need to just wear something cheerful to get through the difficult times you face. I know florals are nothing new ...but something about wearing a floral print completely lifts your mood. Here's to the little things..
