Good for you for having such a positive attitude. I like that in a friend.

Beautiful Girl~ your
photos and blog are wonderful! And so are YOU!



Sorry you are having a rough week, but happy that you are counting your blessings!


Hope your week gets better. Just letting you know that your blog has been quite inspiring!


I know how those rough spells go. Just know you'll feel better soon. And if it helps, finding a new post from you always brightens my day!


I love your blog. I always leave cheerful and inspired by you. Thank you for opening your home and heart to perfect strangers.


What a sweet post! I've learned from experience, the jobs I had, I tried so hard to break the glass ceiling...the heck with the ceiling, when it comes down to it, family and friends are the most important things in life!

I was wondering what was going on. I had one of those feminine intuitions that you were going through something. Isn't that funny.

You are just full of life. And bright and sweet and charming. So I hope that what ever your sorrow is will pass quickly.
It is very brave of you to say share your feelings.
I wish I could be so open.
If I can help in any way, Please let me know
Big Hug,


What a wonderful attitude!! I love your blog and looking at all your beautiful pictures.



Is it in the air? A full moon? Because I'm having that kind of week (EXACTLY that kind of week) & so many people that I talk to are as well. I admire your positive attitude!!


I hope work gets better for you. I can completely 10000% relate to you on that front. I've really been thinking it may be time to move along and find my true bliss as far as the working world. Nothing is worth you questioning yourself and feeling sad, esp. when we have to put so much time in at work. I've stayed so long because of the great perks like flex time and lots of vacation days, but in the end, the perks aren't worth it if you are unhappy.


Life throws us a lot of curves sometimes, but we just have to keep on going. I think we all have sad days sometimes, I know I do. Hope your week gets better...that's a beautiful flower arrangement, so enjoy it! I've just started collecting some pieces of creamware & love it too.

Cheer up Allie - YOU who always make the rest of us feel so good when you post a comment!! You are a daily ray of sunshine and we all love you. Know some days get one down but hopefully they are infrequent - gotta take the occasional bad with the good I guess.
I will stand on the Blue Ridge Mts. this week and blow you a kiss from North Carolina - along with Spring warmth, and plenty of good wishes that each day will be better than the last!


Hi Allie: Came across you a few weeks ago and love reading your posts. I know there are times when we all get down. But as my husband always reminds me, "There is someone wishing for no more than what you have right now!" That always manages to pull me out of my slump. Glad you took the time and looked at all the good in your life. Cheers!:)


Allie, you are facing things with such a good attitude. After all, contentment is all about being happy in the face of imperfection. I work on this everyday, and your blog was encouraging. Its nice to know we arent alone! I'll say a prayer that things start looking up for you.

I'm sorry that you're having a difficult week (me, too). You are handling it in the very best way, by focusing on the "good stuff". Soon, things will just naturally be on a more even keel, thank goodness! BTW, your flowers made me smile. :) I think that's why God made daisies.

Here's to hoping for a better rest-of-the-week!

Love, Andrea


Good for you to look for the positive when you have so many other feelings going on inside! I love your white dishes! Beautiful!!


That pitcher makes me REAL happy and that countertop does too!
I have been having waaayy too many of these days myself and can't quite figure it out...


Creamy, simple, fresh and pretty! A happy day back to you dear Allie! Hugs Carol xox

Daisy Cottage

((hugs)) Hang in there sweetie! "This too shall pass"... and we are right here for you!


Allie, I think we all go through times like you're experiencing...hang in there...{{{Hugs}}}.


sorry for the difficult week you're having but please know that your blog is so inspiring to me. You have such beautiful things and I love visiting your site daily. I am just starting my own blog and am learning at a slow pace- hope to have it as inspiring as yours one day! I would for you to visit my blog, too. Hope your day gets better.



Allie - Hope your week is better than you thought and you have a wonderful visit with your Mom to look forward to with some special memories that I'm sure will be made. Hugs - Karen


Hi Allie - I have just read your blog and also all the wonderful comments from your new friends - what a great support system you have and so encouraging for you to have so many people who care how you are doing. You truly are an inspiration to me and many others and I am thankful that you have so many blessings in your life - we just need to focus on them more than we do sometimes. Hope the last couple of days have been better. Love you, Mom


You are so right! We just have to open our eyes and look around. What makes us happy is just right there, in front of our eyes! A lovely soap, a smile from a child, the flowers in the garden...We dont even notice because we are so occupied with work and other things that really doesn`t matter at all! I am glad that you came to realization what a great life you have!And can start smiling again :)
Love from Aina ;)
