More fires rage, the pandemic isn’t going away soon, and political and social unrest remains. So, everywhere we go, whether on a stroll around the neighborhood or a walk around the house, it’s the little things that have the ability to quell the anxiety if we give them the opportunity. XOXO
that someone is watching you while you’re reading
a can’t-be-put-down book. 🙂
You guessed it; he got my attention. He always does
because I can’t resist those eyes.
Gotta love Copper. ❤

We experienced a big rain storm last weekend, watched our neighbor’s tree fall (across from our house), as we happened to be outside at the time. So we watched and ran to the house, trying not to be its landing target. With all dramatics aside, it was very surreal, and if our neighbor hadn’t of come over to warn us at the time that she did, things may have turned out tragically different. The tree literally fell about 30 seconds later!
But prior to hearing the cracks in the falling tree, we lost power, which was off for over 24 hours. We didn’t complain though. Instead, we were grateful that no one was hurt and no property was damaged. As for the power being out Saturday evening, we ate by candlelight and lanterns, read, talked, and played board games. It was actually a nice evening of disconnect from technology and reconnect with family. This “excitement” offered a new perspective to be thankful for the comforts we do have, for timing being fortunately precise when it should be, and for those public works employees who show diligence in getting life back to normal.
I hope this post finds you all feeling good and happy as this new year begins to unfold.
Sending lots of love, Lauren ♥

I’m so happy for Kruti Mehta and the publication of her new book, Chords of Life (top right corner)…
Alex is everything for Tracy and without him she would be a living morgue. There are days in her life when Kia looks forward to killing her husband. Karma is after Jackson for his doings in the past. Life has taken a full circle and his past deeds are knocking at his doors. Jennifer has nothing left except the memories of her beautiful daughter Rain , whose death remains a tragedy forever. Chords of Life is a collection of strange, morbid, unusual tales of my mind. Our life is like Chords of a Guitar each filled with different emotions at every stage. We may not face the same level of harshness as others, but we do know the bitter truth about cruelty. Each story is crafted with a different emotion within itself.
So if you’re searching for that next compelling book to read in this New Year, here it is! I’ve added it to my collection and I hope you’ll do the same. 🙂
You can order a copy from her blog, http://10eveningflowers.wordpress.com, on the left sidebar widget.
Congratulations, Kruti, and wishing you much success! ♥
Have you ever “talked” about “doing” something, but never did it? I have, so I’ve chosen this year “for doing” and I’m excited to say that my first poetry book is in the production process. I am publishing it through Xlibris and they have been really great to work with. It is expected to be released in October.
Most importantly, I’m dedicating the book to my parents, In Loving Memory of Mom. I wish I had committed to it before she passed away, but I can only move forward now and do it for Dad. Anyway, I just thought of sharing some exciting news and am proud of myself for finally “walking the talk!” 🙂
I also know several other friends who are publishing books, so this truly is the year “for doing!” I’m excited to read them all! ♥
Thanks for visiting and I wish you
a wonderful weekend ahead
and encourage you to…
MAKE THINGS HAPPEN!

Hello Everyone. I am Kruti Mehta, an avid blogger and upcoming author. I have been blogging for the past the 2 years on http://www.10eveningflowers.wordpress.com. While I am not able to connect through many of you, there are enthusiastic friends around me helping me out with the same. Lauren is definitely one of them.
I started blogging back in 2011 with a passion for writing. In the same year I had fantasy visions of a girl, Rhiana. They were so strong that I had to write a story on it. And I started writing a story of a young girl Rhiana Fosters.
“In the small beautiful village of Avina lived Rihana Fosters. Rhiana is a beautiful young girl who gets spooky dreams about places and people that are completely unknown to her. Do these dreams mean anything or is her mind playing tricks on her? Is someone trying to give her a message? The book unveils the story of Rhiana and her friends and their journey towards finding the answers to all these questions.”
My book is named “Fossils of Memory”. Its releasing on 20th August. You can find more details on https://www.facebook.com/fossilsofmemory.
Journey towards it:
The concept of the book is based on imagination and fantasy of dark world. The places and characters are fictional. Writing this book was not an easy journey. I wrote till 2013 January and then I had a “writer’s block”. I waited for three more months to come out of it struggling. While the entire book was complete I could not come out with a perfect climax.
In April 2013 a friend of mine stepped in to the project. Being a blogger and writer herself she offered to help me finish the book. Her name is Himanshi shahs and her blog is http://playfulsoul.wordpress.com. I gave her the space of Co-Author and she drafted the climax for my book. This is how “Fossils of Memory” was complete.
I am a first time author and your support and suggestions would be highly valued. Do let me know if you like my book
