Lyrical Inspiration

Inspiration comes in all forms. Some are inspired by movies, and some by books. There are people who get their inspiration from people, and others from self reflection. When it comes to many aspects of my life, my husband is my inspiration. He is supportive, encouraging and always pushes me to follow my dreams. He helps when he can and is just all-around amazing.

If we are lucky, the temperature highs are around 30 (today we are having a heat wave…45 degrees!!!)  and cloudy days are all too common.
