Happy New Year You All

2017(playing with Illustrator)

Thank you all for following my blog! I value everyone of you! ๐Ÿ™‚ I wish you lots of good health and happiness in 2017.

Reflecting on 2016:

It was good to me and to our family. No complaints. Though I didn’t accomplish what I wanted to on a professional level, I am happy with what I did. I think I have found the way to improve that for 2017. ๐Ÿ™‚ Positively positive on that one! ๐Ÿ™‚

I like to reflect more on the positives than dwell on the negatives. We all have those negatives but if we learn from them than they can be seen as more of a positive.

I think.

If we didn’t have negatives than life would be kind a boring, right? Just don’t want those really bad negatives, like death, and such.

Soooo, I like that word, soooo we had an eventful night last night. The oldest son married his soul mate. ๐Ÿ™‚ They didn’t want anything fancy, in fact, they probably would have went to the judge if big sister hadn’t looked into becoming a minister to marry them. ๐Ÿ™‚ She did a great job! ๐Ÿ™‚

And being the artsy fartsy girls we are we also made some simple decorations. I think it turned out well. Other than the new daughter in law’s family lives far away,ย later down the road they are going to have a reception near her family. Road trip!

Gives us time to save! ๐Ÿ™‚

It is what they wanted.

They know what they want, we can not make those choices for them. I wish them lots of good health, happiness, and many years of wedded bliss! ๐Ÿ™‚

Forgive some of the blurriness, for some reason I move the camera when I take pictures now. I think I am going to have to set it on sports action all the time. LOL.

New Years Eve Agenda:

Our fun for the night is staying in. Hubby and I didย purchase some beer. We laughed because we bought the beer with the cute cans and not the quantity package. LOL. We were like, oh, what can we create with those after they are empty! I’ve rubbed off on him. LOL

Cheers, stay safe, and be happy!

Book Review for Chose the Wrong Guy Gave Him the Wrong Finger

942570_10151538567007483_1761743584_nAuthor Beth Harbison

It would really be the pits to get to the altar and find out your future spouse did something. Do you take a chance or not? I woud say this is the time you would want to listen to your gut with everything you can. I tend to ignore the gut, and find out too late I should have listened to the gut. Sigh.

The book is well written. I like reading all the thoughts of the main character, Quinn. It makes me feel like I am her and going through the situation. The author has some chapters where she flashes back to the past. At first I wasn’t sure about that, but as I read more I really liked seeing how Quinn got to the situation in the present.

The book has witty areas that make it fun to keep reading as well as conflict and struggles. I read it in an entire weekend. I don’t know if my motivation was because they mailed me an advance copy or the fact that the book flowed well from one chapter to the next. ๐Ÿ™‚ It is a book of love, friendship, and a funny old lady meddling in a love triangle.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes Chick Lit. I will definitely read more books by the Author, Beth Harbison. It will be out July 9th!

I did not give details of the actual story because I really hate it when other reviewers give away the story! ๐Ÿ™‚
