LOVE … ahhhh….swoon …..pine…swoon….ahhhh…LOVE.

I swoon when I look at my children.
I still swoon when I look at my husband, especially when he wears his glasses and that black winter hat.
That is good, swooning is good.
I swoon when I look at my girls baby photos.
I swoon when I think of the west coast.
These things make me weak in the knees.
I pine for these things when I don’t have them around me.
I can pine for the craziest things.
I am a simple person really.
Clean sheets.
A really good dinner that everyone loves and came together in a snap.
A basket of clean folded laundry.
An organized fridge.
A shiny kitchen floor.
Yummy smelling freshly washed children.
Sleeping children.
Laughing children.
A latte made by my personal barristo,
My Mom and Dad.
Chris’ voice.
A really great, inspiring conversation with my friends.
Movie popcorn.
Heavy blankets on a cold night.
The sound of live music being played in my house.
Eating dinner when it is still light out.
A hot bath.
Eating crinkle french fries on the beach …
…are just a few of the things that I pine and swoon for…

“The swan is a totem of beauty and grace. As in the story of the Ugly Duckling, it connotes inner beauty as well. If Swan is your totem animal, you are emotionally sensitive, and empathic towards the feelings of others, and you draw people to you. The pure white swan is a solar symbol, whereas the Australian Black Swan is a nocturnal symbol. The swan, with its long neck, acts as a bridge between the worlds, making it an oracular bird. Being a cool weather bird, its direction is North. Swans are excellent totems for children, those connected to the Fairy Realm, poets, bards, mystics, and dreamers.” (Animal Speak, page 196)

Enter January give away.

First Give Away Of 2011- Marvel, Dream

I like the question idea from the last give away. We all have a lot to be grateful for, that is clear.
I’ve been thinking about what my January topic should be. I was going to ask what your resolutions for the new year are or what you want from this upcoming year but instead, I am going to ask for a name of a book or movie that has inspired or effected you in some way.( Or Perhaps, it just made you feel warm inside. ) I have been watching the TV lately and everything seems so glum and dismal and I don’t don’t want to start the year off like that. Let’s exchange inspiring and uplifting books/movies to one another. Wouldn’t that be fun?

My first offer is non fiction:
“The Artist’s Way” by Julia Cameron. Read it, do it and change your life.

My second offer is fiction:
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. Just such a great story. I could read it again and again.

My Movie recommendations is:
Alice by Woody Allen. This movie is such a wonderful fairy tale and a real reminder that living authentically is the only way.

I will offer up some more as the month goes on.
I’d love to hear from you and if I do, your name could be drawn at the end of the month to win a 5″x6″ OOAK reproduction on canvas of the below painting.
Write your suggestion(s) in the comment section of this post. I am really looking forward this!
