Morsel and a Snap: Homemade Latte & When Autumn Leaves


"I know when people don't make their own decisions it's usually because they don't reckon they're smart enough or good enough to make the right ones. But everybody gets it wrong sometimes. That's just part of life. We have to be strong and give it a go anyway."

"The past can be a demon, the past can get inside and change you for the worse."

  24. Great words of wisdom. We should tape those on our mirrors!

    Cool Whip is such a great comfort food. Good thinking! I'm heading to the kitchen to make a new pot of coffee!

    On a side note, Love the shape of your mug!
