Five Fabulous Things {and change}

"What this power is I cannot say; all I know is that it exists and it becomes available only when a man is in that state of mind in which he knows exactly what he wants and is fully determined not to quit until he finds it." Alexander Graham Bell 

Life is a series of ups and downs...that is for sure. And my life the past week has been no exception. It's a summer of good, good things....and some not so good things. 

Change is in the air.

Some good change.
Some scary change.
Some expected...
some not.

"Change has a bad reputation in our society. But it isn't all bad — not by any means. In fact, change is necessary in life — to keep us moving ... to keep us growing ... to keep us interested . ... Imagine life without change. It would be static ... boring ... dull."
— Dr. Dennis O'Grady
in Bottom Line - Personal

Most of the changes we are going through right now involve our children. They are fast becoming young adults...

and that is kind of scary and sad and happy all rolled into one.

Emotions are running high and every now and then things at the Ackman house get a little high-pitched:)

All in all life couldn't be better and my young adult children make me proud:)

Speaking of change...We are into Week 4. I hope you are noticing changes in your days, girls. While I have been less than perfect with it all I am growing and learning and yes, changing.

 If I feel this empowered after just 4 weeks...I can't imagine what the next 48 will bring!!

I wanted to share a few things that have caught my eye recently. Sharing is good, right?!

1. Are you always trying to figure out what's for dinner? Me, too!! Love this blog called Eat at Home.

2. This art journaler just makes me HAPPY!

3.I am still surprised when my artist friends tell me they have never heard of this magazine!! Really??! This is my favorite!! And it's truly a BARGAIN! I am headed to St. Joe today for the latest issue:)

4. Several of us are playing along with my friend Kristin and her Color of Summer. Check that out here!!!

5. My friend Andria has compiled 100 Creative Actions!! Check them out and get busy!!!
