There are so many ways to express yourself through art. Whether you like to play a musical instrument, paint a painting, sculpt, dance, have fun with your fashion, etc. No matter what you choose to do it is a way of telling people how you feel without saying a word. When I was a little girl my parents asked me to choose an art and a sport to practice. I chose piano and dance for my art. I don’t dance as much as I used to, but I still love to play the piano. When I sit down to play nothing else matters. It is a time for me to be one with the music and be lost for just a moment. While I was taking lessons I didn’t love the piano, but now I am older I am so happy my parents asked me to choose something to bring out my creative side.

Did you know October is National Rescue Dog Month? When my husband and I were looking for a dog it was very important to us to rescue because there are so many wonderful dogs who are in need of a forever home. The local shelter is the perfect place to find dogs of every type, size, age and personality, but if you prefer a particular breed that isn’t currently available at a shelter you can go online to find a legitimate breed-specific rescue group in need of adopters. We found Bella at a rescue group in Colorado called Mile High Lab Missionand they were absolutely wonderful to work with. If you choose to rescue from a specific rescue group make sure to fill out all of the required paperwork as soon as possible because it can take weeks to be approved. I chose the quote below because dogs have always been a part of my life and I couldn’t wait to bring a dog into our little family. Bella has helped make our home complete and I couldn’t imagine our life without her.
September is a time for many women to reinvent themselves. When transitioning into any season a lot of people think about what the rest of the year (and their closet) has to hold. This is why September issues are so large. People are moving from one season to another and want to know what the trends are for fall/winter.
September is also the time for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. Fashion Week kicked off last Thursday in New York City and I haven’t been disappointed yet. Even if you can’t be there you can still watch the majority of the shows on NYFW.com and get filled in on all of the upcoming trends for Spring 2017.

Art is a personal thing and is has been said that what we hang on our walls can say a lot about us. It is a visual representation of what we believe in and who we are. Summer is a time for outdoor festivals; many of which are arts festivals, so I thought it would be fitting to talk about art this week. Below is a quote about art by, Thomas Merton.
Have you ever lost yourself in a piece of art, but also feel completely understood?
