If a Picture Says a 1000 Words...

...What does a mosaic of pictures say?

My friends and I continue to reflect on our words, and we have decided to submit mosaics for our joint post. I love seeing how my friends think so this should be fun.

Octamom has just returned from a VERY long road trip. (You gotta love her fortitude and perseverance.)


Completed Road Trips

Blue Skies


Extended Family

Coming Home

Nothing makes a teacher happier than summer vacation (okay and seeing our children succeed is up at the top, too.) Roban seems to have had a very nice summer break as seen below.

What brings me JOY? my daughter Hannah, good movies, great books, knowing that Craig is a caring father, Scout, twinkling Christmas lights, summer days before it gets too hot, blogging, taking pictures of Hannah, Akiane’s amazing art, Maggie, when a student ‘gets it’ and becomes a writer, morning light as it dances through the door, the smell of Biolage shampoo, doing things with Hannah, finding a hand-crafted necklace that has a meaning that resonates with you, being able to walk and run through the neighborhood, making new friends, eating good food, reading magazines (or looking at the pictures!), unexpected snow days, blue skies with windswept clouds, Autumn, scrapblogging, colorful flowers, driving my car, pampering ourselves, pedicures and summer sandals, my family, Starbucks frappucinos…. and so many other things I don’t have pictures of, like warm baths and cozy beds, a roaring fire on cold days, night sounds and falling stars…. The more I think about it, the more things I find that bring me joy!

AVTCoach...still practicing Abundance Mentality!!!

As I move toward a more disciplined way of life, these are some of the things I have been trying to incorporate more of. It is not an issue of right or wrong, but of more or less. I want to get more organized, do more cooking, cleaning and exercise and get a decent amount of sleep. I think it is a never ending journey, but one that is worth the trip.

Great title! And I love your mosaic.... It just "feels" good! I can smell the clean laundry and the comfort of that bed....
