 Hello All! What a beautiful day it is in North Carolina today! 63 degrees and sunny in January. Can you believe it? It's days like these that make me love living in the South. Here is what I have been up to Lately...

Loving: My aloe vera plant pictured above. I got it the end of 2014, re-potted it, and it's still living. You have no idea how many plants I have killed. I love houseplants, but I totally do not have a green thumb. Seriously!

Listening To: Our dog, Bella, snoring. She has the best naps!

Reading: The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace: A Brilliant Young Man Who Left Newark for the Ivy League by Jeff Hobbs.  I'm reading it for my bookclub. Spoiler Alert: From the title you pretty much know what happens to this young man. I just started so I can't form an opinion on it. I just finished reading The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh.  This book was selected by my Sorority Sister, Quinetta, for her summer reading. So glad I "copied" her. It is a gem!

Thinking About: The to-do list that I made this morning. Why do I bother making lists, because 95% of it, won't get done. I'm easily distracted, I can't stop checking Instagram, or looking at Facebook or looking at Twitter because that's where I get my news, and lastly looking at Pinterest at all of the creative people asking myself "Why didn't I think of that?" Then I answer myself thinking it's because you are so busy wondering what everyone else is doing! ha!

Thankful For: The acceptance letters that our daughter, Blake, has been getting from colleges. She has heard from 4, we are still waiting for the last 3. Her hard work is paying off.

Looking Forward To: Completing unfinished projects from 2014. Gulp! See Thinking About and you can guess why they aren't done. First project is to complete my Vision Board.

So... what have you been up to Lately?
