:: life is short - do the things

Hello Lovelies! Hope this post finds all who visit happy & well.

I have been trying to get back to this space over & over, so here I go again. Hopefully I can make it stick this time & get more consistent with my posts. Undoubtedly I have lots of things to share.

Today, I'm feeling the need to send some encouragement out into this little space.  Some recent events have reminded me of how fleeting life can be and how important it is to live in the moment...and love our people fiercely. 

I feel so often we as humans can get caught up walking through life without really living.  I know this has definitely been the case for me more often than I care to admit.  It can be so easy to go through our days getting things done without really appreciating the gifts you've been given.

Today, I want to encourage you & myself to just get out there & { do all the things }. Live your life,  love your people & above all love yourself. Take care of you, you are important, your happiness is important...we can't love others if we don't love ourselves first. Happiness is loving others!!

{ life is short } - do the things

I did a thing...I finally got up the courage to give oil painting a try.  

Here is a crappy iPhone photo of my first painting from a tutorial on YouTube.

I'll be back with another post soon to share more details about my adventures in oil painting & some of the things I've learned along the way.  All I can say is thank heavens for people on YouTube.

* peace, love & hugs *

:: Finally Fall

Hello Friends, How is everyone enjoying the changing of the seasons?

 Here in N.C. fall has finally arrived with it's cool temps & amazing blue skies.  

I am dying to get to the mountains for the big show, I hear it's getting there but not quite yet so maybe I'll still make it that way in time for the leaf change. Until then I settle for visiting Morrow Mountain State Park just across the lake from us, it's my little slice of mountain life without the two hour plus drive.

My mother & I enjoyed a nice hike and a snack overlooking this view a few weeks ago.  Then just the other night I spent an evening enjoying a beautiful sunset with my best friend.

Guys seriously....these views!!! 

There's nothing better than the top of a mountain & a beautiful sunset.

So happy to spend quality time with my sweet mama & my beautiful best friend.

If you ever get the chance, check out Morrow Mountain,
 it's a great place to spend quality time with your favorite people.

peace, love & hugs
Carrie Ann
