Jasmine Star Flowers

These flowers are on my friends back fence. They go down almost the whole yard. It is this massive wall of white flowers that smell like heaven! She always tells me when they are in bloom!!

I love taking pictures of this chick! #1 because she is gorgeous and sweet but #2 because i tell her stupid things to say or do and it makes her laugh and laugh.


I have been struggling with a lot. My brain is foggy. My eyes are so tired I have been struggling to stay awake. My joints hurt. My heart palpitates. I work out and eat clean and gain weight. It’s nearly impossible for this darn weight to come off and it’s not for lack of trying.

I feel miserable all the time. I suck it up and accept it as life but it really gets to me some days.

I look at my three blessings and they just make all the difference. Those kids mean the world to me. Even when I feel like crap. They are so sweet. God really knew what he was doing blessing me with them. I am so thankful. Now. Here’s to hoping I find a new doc soon that can prescribe me a new medicine. I’m going to call around next week and see.


I don’t have crazy Texas pride. I am only a Texan because I live in Texas and it will be my home until we retire (who knows after that.) I love Texas though. The people are kind (unless driving, then they are psycho!!) The skies are gorgeous. The gulf is mediocre but better than no beach! The history is fun to learn about. There is ugly Texas and there are pretty parts. I want to be in the pretty parts always but that’s another story.The Tex-mex is the best. And if you like BBQ, it is done right in these parts.

I’ve learned to find beauty in the small and simple things. The sky, sunset, sunrise, flowers on the back fence, geckos, tiny flowers, birds, etc. When I slow down and really become mindful of what is around me there is a lot of beauty. IMG_9154 copy3.16.2018
