Faerie Magazine Submits Review Blurb for Where Would You Fly

December 13 2017:

My heart is smiling really big and my eyes pooled with sweat …. xoxoxo ….

“Although all of us who love fairies understand that children, with their vivid imaginations, are closer to magic than any of us, we all yearn to retain that childlike sense of wonder. Lillian Darnell’s writings are a welcome reminder of what is possible when you dream big, and accept no limitations.” – Grace Nuth, Senior Editor – Faerie Magazine

More Purging and It’s Empty

November 19 2017:

Today is the day we are squishing the last of our contents from The Romano Duo’s storage unit into this wee 800 sq foot place. The patio is getting full and it is time to purge once again. One more trip and it will be empty!

***************

Done!!! I plan to never use one of these again … unless we are transitioning from one place to another. Three trips here, one to Goodwill, and one to the recycling bin.

Our patio looks horrible, yet it’s all out and now I’m on a purging quest! Posting lots of items on our resident portal. Be gone stuff!!

Bar code Graphic – Closer and Closer – Where Would You Fly

December 10 2017:

Another step done!! Bar code and graphic purchased and generated. There are a massive amount of steps to this entire process. Some of which can be skipped to get it done more quickly.

Yet, I prefer to take all of the same steps, fill out all the forms, and do as much as possible as if this was being published by one of the big dawgs! Loving Kindness Books may be a small team of three (Team TLC) but we sure don’t have to look like it! Onward!!! xoxo

Toasting to Gratitude

**THROWBACK POST**

November 5 2015:

Lillian asked tonight as I was making dinner if we could have a toast at dinner. Thomas joined in her excitement to add this to our dinner. We kind of made it a weekly tradition for each of us to share something with one another and toast our glasses.

We kept forgetting about it during the summer. I’m so glad she remembered. I had such a blissful feeling being in our little home, warm and cozy, making spaghetti and home made sauce.

Lillian’s toast: Here’s to her reaching the one year and 100 photo mark on instagram and the fun weather we’ve been having.

Thomas’ toast: The yummy food we have to eat and this great home we have.

Mine: Here’s to Team TLC always coming back together after rough moments, sharing meals like this, toasts, reading together, growing gratitude gardens, making vision boards, and laughing.

May you share a toast with your friends, family, and/or furry four-legged loved ones often … xoxo

How We Decorate for the Season in a Tiny Home

November 27 2017:

Our wee little 1 foot tree to match our wee little tiny home. The star from our old tree is way too big so I nest it in a glass bowl surrounded by lights and mini glass balls.

Going on our 3rd Christmas in an 800 square foot one bedroom, one bathroom condo. Next up is hanging our collection of handmade, sparkly, paper snowflakes. Part 1

Pushing the Cart and Pulling Holds – Volunteering at the Library

November 16 2017:

There she is …. On our way to pull holds! She has taken over pushing the cart. Oh, and see the art gallery in the background? That’s where Team TLC will have our family art showing in spring 2018.

Thomas will have photos from Biggest Little Photographer, Lillian will have her artwork, and I’ll have perhaps my photos paired with poetry.
