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? […]

    I was totally digging the calendar when we were over for your birthday and I meant to ask where you got it. Lol!

    I also love the first etsy artwork. It is beautiful!ReplyCancel

      Lol well now you know! Thanks, I was happy it looked as good in person as it did onscreen 🙂 ReplyCancel

Hi! How is your week starting out? Did you have a long weekend, you lucky duckie? I have to say, traffic to work was amazing yesterday with everyone who had the day off for MLK day. It made coming home quick, too, so I was able to prep and photograph this spicy shrimp and roasted […]

What’s the haps, peoples? How’s your week going so far? I’ve been super productive and since these moods don’t tend to last, I’ve reveling in a big way! Like for instance, I had to appear for jury duty earlier this week, so because I was downtown I had a late lunch at my favorite restaurant. That I […]

    One of the great things about growing older is not only finding our true path (hopefully, and if not, read The Alchemist) and voice but being able to unabashedly express it to others. Congratulations on your many accomplishments both internally and externally! Here’s to a great 2017!

    Amy this is certainly no surprise to you but my major goal for 2017 started as a dream about 2002. That’s when I began my journey toward becoming a licensed therapist. Graduating with my MSW from USC is a major step forward and I am so happy that I will make, with 3 months to go I am confident, my self-imposed deadline set over a decade ago to graduate in this year.ReplyCancel

      I’ve read The Alchemist, it was lovely and powerful for me. I am incredibly proud of your soon-to-be accomplishment of graduating. I know you’ll do great things for this world (and you have already). Thank you for your kind words and for being such a bright light for me. XoxoReplyCancel

Hey guys! Second week of 2017! You made it – good for you, you stud! How’s 2017 going? Inspired? Thoughtful? Meaningful? Just another week and excited to make it? Whatever you’re angle, I’m glad you’re here! So to wrap up our 2016 review, I’m sharing the top ten posts of the last year ’round these parts. I’m a little […]

2017! You can’t know how excited I am for a new year. Or maybe you do? Either way, “it’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me – and I’m feeling good.” I didn’t do so well keeping up with our Wandering Eye Wednesday posts last year. I’m actually considering if […]

Well hello there! How is your December going so far? We are getting our Christmas on, slowly but surely. Doing all the things, you know. I wanted to share our annual Thanksgiving camping trip with you guys before I move on to everything else clogging my brain. Besides. I told you I would, right? If […]

So, Wednesday. Here she is again. And then, before you know it, there she goes… time is FLYING, guys. This year has been something else, and I thought it was dragging, but oy. It’s already the middle-ish of December already. Yowza. Wandering Eye Wednesday – brace yourself: I’m sharing a few photos from our last camping trip, which shouldn’t […]
