some pursue happiness, others create it

This week has been quite consuming with anything but fun. My grandmother has been in the hospital (hopefully she will be released this morning), my son has had a low grade fever (so hard to focus when your little one is under the weather), and school (which stops for no one) had me going all week with presentations, care plans, and an exam to top it off.

Injecting a little bit of happiness is all I need to exhale the bad and inhale the good.

This picture was sent to me from an old friend a long time ago. It serves as inspiration for my next little project.

As much as I feel overwhelmed from time to time…I find such peace in my little blog world. The friendships I have created here fill my soul with strength for every challenge I face. In fact as I start off this weekend, I am so delighted to have been nominated for 2 blog awards.

My second ever blog award was presented to me by the lovely Meg at House Notes. I am ever so touched by her friendship. Her style is fresh and inspiring, and her loveliness is ever so endearing.

Cindy at cottage instincts also gave me the same award. How I love this fellow Hoosier. She is so warm and get a true sense of what Hoosier hospitality is all about. Go see what she crushes this week. I am sure you will find oodles of treasures to look at.

My third ever blog award was presented to me by the divine Jessi at Yankee Belle Home. From cloches to PB love…we were meant to be friends.

In honor of both blogs and the new found friendships I have created along the way, I thought I would share with you 3 blogs that I have found along the way. These ladies fulfill my ever desire to be inspired.
1.Creamy White
2.Sixty-Fifth Avenue
3.Much to Do with Nothing

Now to share with you 3 things you may have not known about me:
1. My real name starts with a “e”---Megandvd is my internet/pen name. LONG story there, but I have gone by Megandvd(online) since I was 12. Oooohhh...aren't I mysterious? Hehehe.
2. I am fluent in American Sign Language (I minored in college).
3. I LOVE family pictures and you will find them all over my home. The photographs I display are out to capture the moments we (as a family) want to remember and revolve around the people we love and treasure.

A particular favorite...that is so meaningful right now. (Had to snap a picture of it as it hangs on my wall just for friends.)

This young chic couple are my grandparents. Lola and Pop look smashing. They were married in the Philippines in 1950. The legacy they have created for me is epic.

Have a wonderful weekend. Find inspiration, relish in friendships, and find a new blog to explore…off to go create a treasure or two.

  6. Hang in there. Graduate school is tough...Dad says that sometimes it just takes a strong back. It does, because not only are you working your tail off there, but you have a family to love and take care of, too. You are handling it all beautifully.

  7. My dear, you have a full plate indeed(overflowing to say the least). I hope your grandmother's and little T's good health will be restored soon. And don't forget to take care of yourself too!

    Smashing couple indeed. As always, you have such a way with words: "The legacy they have created for me is epic." This made me a bit weepy!

  8. I wish I were closer and could give you a tad of relief...or a good meal, or to share a cup of tea! I hope you are getting some sleep as you juggle and care, and that your grandma and Thurgood are doing much much better! What a beautiful photo of your grandparents. I love that you have it and others displayed in your beautiful home.
    Take care of you today!

  9. I'm so sorry to hear about your tough week! I'm sending positive vibes and saying a prayer for your grandmother and son and am also hoping your school load will lighten up a little for you. You've got a lot to deal with and I know that has to be overwhelming!

    Thanks for your sweet words. I am always inspired by your beautiful work. That inspiration photo makes me think another fabulous project is on the way! Can't wait to see it!

    A pen name? So chic! I love that!

  10. So sorry about your grandmother): hope she is getting better and your little one too seems at times everything happens all at once..
    the good news is that you got 3 award congrats!

  11. Hi e,
    I saw you came by and then noticed you mentioned me on your's. Thank you for that:) I know school is tough. I have a son in law school, and like I told you, my daughter-in-law is preparing for pharmacy school. When children are sick, and other loved ones are hurting it only adds to the load. Spring break is around the corner. Will you get to take it easy then?
    I remember Room Service too. I tried to never miss it. She is one amazing designer. I wish those re-runs would come back. I could watch them all over again.
    Take care,

  12. Sorry about your grandma and son! Thats tuff..Can't wait to see what your inspiration is..Congrats on all your awards! ~lulu

  13. I'm sorry about your grandmother! Give a big hug :)

  14. Awww, love the photo and I hope Lola feels better soon!
