Beauty

Beauty is not in the way we look, the size of our clothing, or the color of our hair. Beauty is not how we apply makeup, or if we don’t wear it at all. Beauty is not the color of our eyes, and it’s definitely NOT in the color of our skin.

Beauty is deeper than what we see on the outside.

Beauty is in your soul, your being. It’s the way you love, the way you laugh, the way you carry yourself. Beauty is in your imperfections. It’s your honesty and trustworthiness. Beauty is in your positive attitude, loving heart, and the way you treat others.

Don’t be fooled by what you see on the outside. Some of the most beautiful people have ugly hearts and some people you may consider ‘ugly’ are the most beautiful souls in the world.

Friday’s Funnies – My Faves This Week

Happy Friday, everyone! It’s time for Friday’s Funnies! I hope you enjoy these after a long, hard week. Just remember to chill and don’t take life so seriously. Smile a lot, laugh more, and if someone accuses you of being immature….well, then LET THEM! (And tell them to pull the stick out of their rump!)

Enjoy!

These are my great-grandparents, the Yunkers. Originally, it was Junker but when they came to the US it was changed, as were many surnames. I don’t know too much about them, except that they left Germany and went to Russia before coming to the US. I grew up thinking so many of the foods I had grown to love were German foods when many of them were actually Russian recipes with my grandmother’s German spin. Go figure! I never knew my great-grandfather, but my great-gramma was a kick in the pants!

The Liebster Award

20180712_092248662032844

First, I’d like to thank Kelley’s DIY for the Liebster Award! I appreciate the nod!

What is the Liebster Award? The Liebster is an award that is given to bloggers by other bloggers. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcoming.

The GUIDELINES for the Liebster Award are as follows:
1. Thank the person who nominated you
2. Display the award on your post
3. Answer the questions given to you
4. Nominate 5-11 other blogs for this award
5. Ask them creative and unique questions of your own
6. List the rules and inform your nominees of the award

Questions given to me:

1) What is your favorite color? Purple

2) Cats or Dogs? Cats!

3) Which is your ideal place: Beach, Lake, Ocean, Forest and why? Lake! I used to be a cross-country backpacker. I spent many hours beside a lake and campfire. It’s a peaceful place to be and I will always miss it!

4) Favorite Scary Movie? A Norwegian slasher film called Cold Prey. There’s also a Scandinavian film trilogy called The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. The American remake was OK but the original was much better. Not really scary, but a thriller anyway.

5) One Wish? To have my mobility back so I can do the things I’d like to do.

6) Dream Vacation? Scotland! I’d love to see all of the castles. I love castles!

7) Saver or spender? In between, I suppose.

8) Which season do you prefer? (Spring,Summer, Fall, Winter)? Winter.

9) Where’s your happy place? In the woods, in nature.

10) Why did you start your blog? I started my blog because I was going through some “stuff” and I needed a way to vent. It became one of the things that saved my sanity.

My Nominees for the Liebster Award are:

  1. Truly Madly Ordinary. Stories From The Heart.
  2. Seven Cats And Counting
