So interesting, I just came up with that word.  When I started typing that’s how it came out and I think that I’ll keep it.  It is a combination of friends and family.  That is what I am going to do this post on.  You can’t pick your family, it’s kind of the luck of the draw.  You do however get to choose who you will have in your life as your friends.

I have the coolest friends that anyone could ever hope for.  I thank God for them because I know he really put them into my life as a support system.  Yesterday I have to give major kudos out to Beth.  She really is my angel.   She pops up whenever I need her.  It’s really rather magical.  She took me out to dinner, we shared a bottle of wine and laughed.  Very unusual for me to drink alcohol, but it was so nice sharing a bottle of wine with her.  Dinner was fabulous!!!  I had the best shrimp and then we walked over to the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and we had our desserts.  It was the best ❤ and she is truly a great friend.  It is good to hang with her, it’s like they say you are who you hang with.  So I’m in very good company !!!


I took a writing course last month, “The Artist Way” and I made some new friends there too.  I got a call from one of the ladies in the class and we are going to try to get together and maybe I’ll have another lunch buddy.  B O O M !!!  Also one of them emailed me, so it’s nice to meet new people with interest that are the same ❤  Writing ❤  I’ll give a shout out to my blogging buddy D too…

Then of course there are my life long friends who have been with me the whole way (adult, married life).  They are truly part of my family.  They know every little and big thing about me and me about them.  We had babies together.  We lost babies together.  Life’s crap that has been thrown at us from the world and from places and people you’d least expect.  We still love each other and know that they are only a phone call away.  It’s sad to think that some people in your life be it family or friend could hurt so many, but you really just have to move on !!!   God gives you the strength you need to carry on.   He’ll handle that, you just have to let it go !!! 

He gives you those people who bring love and support to put their arms around you and say, “I’ve seen what you have done, you are the best and I won’t let you quit.”  So yes God gives you another day and you say thank you for that and thank you for the wonderful people you have put in my life to help me through.  Forget the bad and focus on the good ❤    

I really just wanted to write a post about friends but I have a really great family too.  My husband/Artist is the best and sweetest man ever.  Did I mention he is an Artist with a website … This is, “Ballet Beauty”  It’s on his website…


 I know, but I have to get all of you amazing blogger’s, performer’s over there to buy some of his really affordable artwork 😉  I also have two son’s who are also artist and are just the finest young men that I love to pieces ❤  Professional Ballet Dancer’s !!!1794586_10202208365914794_1345909896873643771_n

My favorite pictures of my guys !!!  They are just too freaking cool and good looking aren’t they ❤   

Well I’ve put up my post for today and so excited because the husband will be home tonight.  He was away on business and I always miss him so much when he’s gone.  So looking forward to that.  Blessings everyone I hope you are having a great week.  It’s Hump Day 😉  So for everyone remember just, “Shake it Off”  😉  After all tomorrow is another day…


And forget about people like this, because everyone has dealt with this.  But remember we are in very good company and all we can really do is pray for those people…

Strictly Business

Blessings ❤

  1. AAAAAWWWWWW – I love when I get mentioned in your blog! It’s always good to see you and catch up. Thank you dear friend!

    • I love you Miss Beth, you’ll never know how much you mean to me ❤ Your the best ❤ Like I said, it's magical how you just show up every time just at the right moment ❤

  2. Framily! I love it! I wrote on a similar topic for today’s Kindness Challenge week wrap-up – my husband and friends, and then those people who God puts into our lives for exactly the right reasons, at the right times. I also see that you took part in the A to Z challenge so we were destined to meet. I would have loved to have taken part in the Artist’s Way workshop, but it probably wasn’t anywhere near Indiana. Have a good weekend!
