Out with the Old, In with the New

by Teresa Smith on January 5, 2015

It’s the beginning of a new year. Out with the old and in with the new. Don’t we all wish it could be that easy. Don’t you wish that with the each new year, new month or even each new day… you could fully let go of things that don’t serve you anymore and embrace [...]

I was in my front yard, looking at the sky yesterday afternoon when I noticed a dandelion. One little dandelion in the midst of my brownish green grass. As I looked around on this first day of winter, I noticed all of the leaves had fallen off of my trees and the lifeless looking grass. [...]

A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine told me about a park that is an hour and a half away. The park had wolves, otters, raptors and a planetarium. This place sounded like a great road trip for the day so I headed out in my car with a friend Saturday morning to [...]


A Work of Art

by Teresa Smith on December 8, 2014

I’m always looking at things when I’m driving. Now don’t be upset. It’s not that I’m not paying attention to my driving and I’m all over the road. I am…taking in everything I see. I notice the trees, thinking that some look more powerful and stronger than others. Some trees have character. I notice colors [...]

I amazed that the holidays are upon us. We’ll be celebrating Thanksgiving later this week and Christmas in a month. During this time, I always like to look back through the year of what I’m thankful for. I guess the big thing that stands out this year is that my brother came out of a [...]


Plan C

by Teresa Smith on November 3, 2014

Sometimes you have an idea or plan and things don’t work out the way you planned… but better. That happened to me this weekend. A few weeks ago I went to the mountains with hopes of capturing the beauty of fall. At the time, the leaves hadn’t really started to change, so I was excited [...]

Take the Time

by Teresa Smith on October 6, 2014

This week I was saddened when I heard my best friend’s brother passed unexpectedly Saturday. I think many of us are still in shock. Apparently, he had some arrhythmia issues with his heart that he had been dealing with recently. He was only 50 years old. I remember the last time I saw him, we [...]


Truth Is…

by Teresa Smith on September 29, 2014

It’s so hard for me to believe that Fall is here. Where did the year go? It seems like just yesterday I was slipping and sliding through the ice. Not only has the ice gone, but so has spring flowers and long hot summer days. I’ve started noticing the shift in the sun, leaves beginning [...]

For years I’ve watched the Tonight Show off and on. I enjoyed Carson, and Leno had his moments. When Jimmy Fallon took over earlier this year, I began watching it nightly. I remember watching Fallon on Saturday Night Live and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and was glad to see him move into the Tonight [...]

Saturday, I had a job opportunity that took me through some countryside that I’ve never been around. The truth is, I don’t live in a major metropolitan city, but I do live near the city … close to stores, shopping and interstates. That was not true this weekend. Saturday it was backroads, weeds & barnwood.  [...]
