“It’s hard to wait for something

you know may not happen.

But it’s even harder to give up

when you know it’s everything you want.”

~ Wade Lancaster

Beauty within…



“Anyone that truly loves with their heart, mind, and soul must surely know that love is not a shape or shade, but the exquisite sum of who we are when the adornments and image projection are stripped away. To know that beauty in the ones we hold dear, is the greatest gift people can share.” ~Daniel Hinson


Daniel was one of the first bloggers that I met and became friends with here on WordPress.  We’ve collaborated together in the past on “Monotony Free Mondays” which unfortunately didn’t last very long, since I couldn’t get the support needed from enough other bloggers.  I also had the opportunity to share a short bio about Daniel’s life, which can be found here.  He’s an amazing writer, wonderful person, and a treasured friend.  Please visit his blog at: Hyperion Sturm.  I am also especially fond of his series, In the Garden of Darkness and Light.  So check him out!  ~M

One year anniversary!


Yup… Here’s me doing something else besides writing for a change…  😉


Just want to say thanks to everyone who has blogged with me over this last year.  It’s been so much fun getting to know all of you and I really appreciate your words of encouragement and the support that all of you have shown me.  You’re the best!


Love you all so much!
