7. Share something fun. A quote, photo, website or anything that others might enjoy.
I have been enjoying reading the blog Believing in myself by MaryFran.

She is a down to earth person and such an inspiration to me. She is crazy active and reading about her running always amazes me. I love that even though I'm not a runner, she still sends encouragement my my with kind words. She never makes anyone feel that her way is the only way to be active, healthy and lose weight.

MaryFran has fun weekend "daytrips" and posts great photos for us to enjoy. Not only are they fun, but I've actually learned a thing or two LOL.

If you like positive, honest blogs, I think you would enjoy following her journey,  so be sure to check out her blog.

Making- I started a new small cross stitch that will fit in with my kitchen decor.

  1. You just literally made me cry!!!!! Good tears. Thank you for such fabulous kind words about my blog and myself!!!!

    No way if I can remember what I was going to say about your blog before you got me crying!!! :-).

    Congrats on the loose pants! That is a wonderful victory!!!!! And a triumphant week....we can't ask for anything better than that!!!

    I do have a of the cross stitch please!!! :-). I haven't worked on any cross stitch in a few years. I tend to get sucked into these enormous pieces that take many many months to complete and then get burned out!!! (ok and I've been working on my dollhouses lately!!)

    1. I'd love to see the dollhouses! I tried to build one year's ago and got discouraged by all the details. It just wasn't coming together for me. Maybe because it was a kit?

      I usually post my cross stitch on my other blog but I'll show this one here in a couple days.
