A Fashion Goal Achieved

Belt on a khaki dress

After we came back from church yesterday morning, John said, “That skirt has a belt.

There was a time, long, long ago, where your camera did not have a little screen on the back, but rather had a compartment for film. Some of you may be too young to really remember this, but back then you had to take your film to be developed and wait for it to be   Continue Reading…

Finding Inspiration In a Picture

Inspiration Picture for Weight Loss

If you’ve read my blog, you might remember the blog post where I shared that my supposed best friend was not at all happy when I was losing weight.
