Rising Above


The gorgeous colors of fall have started to appear…
Sumac is one of my favorites. It is really feeling fallish today!

From my heart, I thank you each of you who have reached out in support to me. Your kind thoughts and words are so much appreciated. Throughout this experience, I have done my best to take the high road and be the best person I can be.

I try to look at each day and event in my life and learn from it. Yesterday was a big, painful lesson. I thought it would be helpful to write about the experience have some closure about it. It turned out that it opened Pandora’s box.

Yesterday, I withdrew from a group of online friends I love connecting with because I need peace to heal and move forward. Very few people know the whole story of what happened during that time and it serves no purpose to bear it all. I would really appreciate my friends to trust that I carefully contemplated my actions and have strong justification for ending a friendship I adored.

Someone recently posted, “If someone shows you who they are, believe them.”

I believe and am listening to my instincts.

I am sorry for dragging down my blog for two days in a row.

Today my message is Rising Above.


At the Junk Bonanza, I promised to share this beautiful art from a sweet vendor we met.


If you grew up on a lake or have happy childhood memories, you would remember the orange life vest she painted. It is beautiful and painted on wood.


Love her fresh summer tomato too! One of my favorite summer treats!


Suzanne is having a studio show and sale… We hope you can join her!


I hope you can take a moment to enjoy the beauty that surrounds you!

🙂 Kris
