A Little Bit of Happy!


That’s me, right there… a little bit of color in an otherwise bland and pasty, dark and cloudy world. I took this photo today because it reminded me of part of my purpose. It was sort of an aha moment when I looked out the window, and it made me smile. We could all use a little smile, and a whole lot of Happy!  So here’s a little bit of color, just in case your world is a wee bit dark these days. 🙂 Oh, and Happy New Year! May 2017 be a great year for you, and for all of us. 🙂 Lets find our Happy and share it in abundance.

A Flower a Day (spreading joy)


Cheer Peppers it’s Nano Poblano day 25. Well I made it through my work day….phew that was pretty tough. Then because the work day ran long I hurried to make a meeting with family from out of town. Got sick to my stomach on CoCo’s no sugar added apple pie, choked down some apple cider vinegar to settle my stomach, and here I am. LOL I don’t know when exactly I decided to start spreading joy by sharing my flower photography, but I guess that doesn’t really matter. The comments I get on my instagram and facebook shares lets me know that it matters to my friends, family, and followers.  I have even gotten notes when I forgot to post, and snark should I post a landscape, or tree, or body of water instead.  “Where’s the flower”!? It makes my heart smile to know that it matters. Here are some of my favored flower photos. Just doing my part to spread a little joy instead of hate. 🙂










Hugs to you team tiny peppers. We got this. I hope I have brought you a little joy today. See you again tomorrow. 🙂

What’s in a Salad?


Turns out not much. This is the wedge salad from Outback Steakhouse. You can find variations of it everywhere. It is so easy to make and hands down the best salad I have ever had. So simple, and yet so perfect. It’s the little things in life. I am currently trying to focus of kindness and gratitude and avoiding the headlines that scream news of our demise.  I am using photos as prompts when I don’t have words. Memories can make great posts. So Cheers team tiny peppers…we’re not quite in the home stretch but I can see it in the distance. See you all again tomorrow.
