How goes it, fine people of the world? We are wrapping up our weekend, and boy was it a productive one. Got some big chores done, some relaxing in, and celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary. I’ll be exhausted tomorrow, but it was worth it! 72 hours in Seattle Travel Plan I mentioned our weekend in Seattle […]

Another month down! How’s your year going so far?? This month is such a short one, and especially when you’re counting it by Wednesdays… I didn’t shoot much in the last few weeks, but I do have a few photos I want to share for WEW: February 2017’s Wandering Eye Wednesday quota 🙂 WEW: February 2017 – SEATTLE […]

Holy mama, you guys! Did you know that Painted Posies has been going on now for FOUR years?!? Now past the toddler stage and straight on into the preschool age, and I’m like, whoa, where did my baby go? Haha, seriously though. I can’t believe it’s only been four years, and at the same time already […]

Hi people! How are you? Did you have a good weekend? Ours was great as always – busy but not too hectic. I wanted to do a special post just for the Chihuly Glass and Garden exhibit we went to on our weekend trip to Seattle last month. SO much gorgeous art to look at, and while I’m […]

Woo-hoo! We made it – another Friday! Pat yourselves on the back, life’s tough out there! Guess what? I made a thing! And I wanna show it off! Some major time has passed since I’ve crafted and I’ve been itching to get creative on the quick. Naturally, I stopped at the craft store yesterday on the way home from work […]

Hey, Hey, Hey! How’s this week turning out for you? It’s quiet time around here, and we’re soaking up the solitude while it lasts. Birthday season comes quick and sweeping in this family, and when it’s calm? Well. Joe and I bask in every bit of our downtime at the house. It’s beautiful in Phoenix, and the doors […]

Hey there! How’s about that title up there, eh? The hell is an aquarian protagonist goat in the year of the rooster, you ask? Well I am, of course, but I’ll get to that in a minute. So my birthday and the Lunar/Chinese New Year happened last week, which obviously means it’s the season of looking towards the […]

Hey there, fine people! How’s your week going so far? I’m just chugging along over here, trying to catch up from being on vacation and getting acclimated with the new year. I need to find my workout and healthy eating routine, along with patience for all things social media right now. So much hate in […]

    I like the monthly post idea. I believe it will be easier to tailor note worthy experiences monthly rather than weekly. Please keep it going as I suspect there are many who read your posts but do not engage. Some of us just like to watch!ReplyCancel

    Thanks, Ray! I bet you’re right. I appreciate the feedback 🙂ReplyCancel

    I think you nailed it when you said you need patience for all things social media right now. I think that’s why I am here on Painted Posies. If I had it my way, most Facebook posts would look like your posts here; a place catch up with the lives friends and loved ones versus everything else. There are plenty of outlets for everything else. You know, in my business we are always talking self-care: exercise, nature, meditation, mindfulness, journaling (apparently not a word!?). Anyway, I thought that your post may be a form of self-care for you and in that sense makes little difference if it is popular or not. I also agree with Ray, that most may read but not engage because it’s a nice escape from everything else right now. Lastly, I think you have been to many cool places recently evidenced by using the word “totes.” The west is the best baby! With your eye for photography I welcome the pics from San Francisco, the Mogollon Rim, Ocean Beach, Seattle, and LA coming up!!! Along with the beautiful pictures closer to home it seems you have plenty of material that is engaging to others.ReplyCancel

      Thank you, Dylan! I appreciate the input and it means a lot that you’re following along here 🙂 I’m glad Painted Posies can be a positive place for people to come and get away from the rest of the online chatter 🙂 ReplyCancel

You guys-you’ve almost made it to Friday! You deserve a pat on the back, and something to kill the time until the weekend kicks in, am I right? We are gearing up for a trip for my birthday weekend, so I’m totally feeling antsy about getting there already. But, first. I wanna know – do you Etsy? […]
