Even as a kid I have always taken a lot of photos. We have boxes and albums of my photos and Snake’s photos. Digital just added to the sheer numbers because we don’t have to take them to be developed. And other than storage space, they are free.Continue reading Charmer’s Take on Photography

Mothers and Grandmothers
I’ve written about my mother several times, at least here and here. I almost did the really lazy thing–see yesterday’s post–and just linked up one of those for this prompt.Continue reading Mothers and Grandmothers
Regretting the Results
The term regret always makes me think about my mother. She insisted that the only song that she had to have at her funeral was My Way. There were wrong choices and problems in her life but she always kept moving forward.Continue reading Regretting the Results
Love letters are sweet. They make you feel good and you can put them away and bring them back out again and relive that moment. Everyone likes to hear that someone thinks they are special and important.Continue reading Love Actions
I’ve never had what I considered a lot of friends. I’ve always been more of a few close friends and a lot of people who I like to do things with. They are casual friends but not the ones who would get a call if I needed something.Continue reading Friendship
What is Intimacy?
The easy answer is that I know it when I feel it–but it isn’t that easy. It comes in a lot of shapes and sizes, some passing quickly, while others stay for a lifetime. They are all unique and yet…Continue reading What is Intimacy?
Bawdy Bells 5 — Lies?
The Christmas piece of this prompt never really applied to me. Yes, we put out cookies and milk for Santa and got a gift on Christmas morning.

But, it was always more of an embodiment of the magic of Christmas rather than a person so it never felt deceitful to me.Continue reading Bawdy Bells 5 — Lies?
A Wrinkle in Time
*This was originally posted in December for Food 4 Thought but it fits in well with the current Book Matters. And it is a fabulous children’s book!*
I was so excited to see this prompt because I am a reader. I rarely leave the house without my Kindle and bath time is always spent reading. And it’s a great day when I can slip some time in during the day as well.Continue reading A Wrinkle in Time
The Secret Life of…Charmer
There are good secrets and bad. The ones that excite you and you don’t want to spoil and the ones that you know are wrong.Continue reading The Secret Life of…Charmer
Where Would We Be?
It’s hard for me to look back and see another path because Snake and I always tend to look forward more than back. Yeah, we have the regrets that everyone has, but we try to take what has happened and make something else of it. And realizing that the other path wasn’t really what we wanted anyway.Continue reading Where Would We Be?
Trying to pick one moment or even series of moments that I would like to revisit is SO hard… so, I’m going to cheat a bit and pick a genre of moments that are always the ones that I go back to in my head.Continue reading Traveling
I had two ideas for this post and I couldn’t decide which way to go. I had the memorable kisses idea and then a day of kisses in our life. So, lucky you, I decided to do both.Continue reading Kissing
