This weekend, live, laugh, love!

Hi everyone, did you hear about the plane that crashed into an office building here in Austin? It was about 4 miles from our house, J saw the big fire on his way to work. We are safe though. Thanks to everyone from all around the world who checked in on us, really made me feel loved.

I feel sad tho, my heart goes out to his wife and daughter, and to those in the office building and their families.


But you know what? Underneath it all is a reminder to really live, laugh and love.  Because life really is short, and you just never know what will happen.  All any of us can do is live life to the fullest.


Really live life, be in the moment, in the laughter, in the love! Enjoy life. And that’s what I’m going to do this weekend.

(Supplies: Heart and flourish background stamp, gems and notecard by Hero Arts. I colored the heart with Copic markers, then misted it with Ranger’s Perfect Pearls in water — a trick I learned from Jennifer — thanks, Jennifer.  Ribbon from my stash, I think it is May Arts.)

Hope your weekend is full of love and laughter,

  9. glad you are OK, can’t believe that was so close to you!  I don’t know what is wrong with people, but that hardly seems like a solution to anyones problems- but what do I know, I have no idea what his life was like.  So sad, I too feel for his family and the others affected.  Anyway, glad you are OK.
