Focus On The Positive and Let The Rest Go!
There are so many distractions in life. Things to think about, see, understand or worry about. Sometimes it all becomes so overwhelming and hard to see a light at the end of the tunnel. I have learned over the years to stop, refocus my thoughts and actions, to put them towards positive things instead of the negatives. If I can't control it, LET IT GO.

Ms Kitty The Octopus

Has a steampunk style heart, key in one tentacle and a pocket watch dangling from the right side tentacle.

You can't listen to it. You can't let it stop you. I have a fire inside that is forever burning. Some days it...

To New Adventures!

I can't remember a time when I was not thrilled to be in nature. Covered in dirt and sweat, crawling and exploring creek banks as a child. Swinging from vines across the creeks as a teen. Gardening in herbs and veggies as an adult.  Growing up I spent time in both ends of Tennessee. My dad would take us for drives all over up in those mountains and the views were just thrilling.  When I finally got a chance to hike and explore north Arkansas I felt like I had found home. I wanted to stay. We were miles deep...
