B Is For Beautiful

Today I will dedicate the letter B to all things I find to be beautiful.
First I will show you some of the flowers I have seen and had the pleasure of photographing.

From my mother-in-law's garden.

From my mother's garden. Notice the bee buzzing around?

From an Easter bouquet the hubby got me last year.
How about some beautiful skies before my eyes...

God was smiling on us this day!

Even on the verge on a storm, it is amazing to see!

How about beauty in a bead of water?

What about a building or landmark if you prefer. The CN Tower used to be the largest tower in the world. Now it's second to the Buraj al Arab in Dubai.

This is my niece Bella, short for Isabella. Bella is also Italian for Beautiful. Which she is, cute as a button!

Now you know I saved the best for last. My babies! My boy, Kris, you met him in yesterday's post. Brianna is my youngest, and now a teen too!

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.

Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void. Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners.

You may work hard on writing good posts or hiring people who can create useful and interesting stuff…
