Three for Me

Before I begin my three for me this week, I want to say thank you to all of my readers. I truly appreciate your comments both publicly and privately and for your support in all that I do on my blog.

You may have noticed that I have recently been posting poems and photos as separate posts....this is because through my searches in the blogging world, I have come across a few challenges that I have decided to take part in - Project 52 (photo challenge), NaPoWriMo & A to Z (both writing challenges).

I invite you to read my poems and visit other poets through the NaPoWriMo links I have included in my posts. But fair warning.....in case you haven't figured it out yet, my poems tend to be on the heavier side....somewhat sad....somewhat dark.... why? because that's just part of who I am.

With that said. The Three for Me this week are:

1. My son the artist - has been chosen to be the Artist of the Month at his middle school! YEAH! I'm so happy for him. Even though it's not like a BIG thing....it's still so nice to be recognized for something that you have a passion for....and he certainly has a passion for art. In fact, he came into this world with pencil in hand and with an artist's temperament to match.

This kiddo will doodle and draw like there is no tomorrow....I usually have no problem with this unless its on a math test! (Yes....he doodled during a test and then told us he couldn't finish the last problems because he ran out of time....uh---- HELLO!!!) Anyhow, congrats honey on a job well done! We love you lots and can't wait to see what else you have in your imagination.



2. My Hubby's Birthday!!!! Yes, today is the day.....forty-four years ago....that my hubby was born. I want to wish him a wonderful birthday. It's sad that he has to work today, but at least he will be home tonight so that we can all celebrate together. Hopefully, he won't be too tired and we can catch a family movie and eat fondue.....yes....FON-DUE!!!! It's kind of turned into our family's tradition to have both cheese and chocolate fondue for our birthday dinners....YUMMY!!!!





3. Featured Photo!!! Yep! I a featured artist! Me?! As I stated above, I have joined a photography challenge hosted by Bella on Project 52. Every week, Bella posts a theme word and we have to submit a photo that represents that word....it's a lot of fun and a great way to meet people with the same interests. I'm still a novice when it comes to photography, so when I received an email from Bella asking to use my interpretation of "Layers" for her gallery, I was very flattered and honored. Thank you, thank you, thank you Bella for this recognition.....I love it....totally doing my happy dance right now!!! Yippeee!!!

If you get a chance, stop by and see my photo in the Artist Spotlight!



Well....that's it for my three this week. What are you loving this week? Please share because I would love to learn more about you.

  6. It's so wonderful when our children have a skill or talent that excites them. Drawing is definitely an exciting...unless he's drawing while doing Math. LOL. I checked out "Layered" and it is very beautiful. Something so simple...yet so lovely photographed. Thanks for sharing.
