Words of Wisdom…


Where have I been you ask?

I’m entering a new and very scary chapter of my life and apologies for the lackluster blogging as of late. I feel like a broken record but I promise I’ll stay more in the swing of things as this crazy weather decides to make up it’s mind and the stars in the sky sort things out in mi vida loca!

I’ve moved out of my home and besides feeling disorganized, I feel a bit lost too. I’m trying to not let it get me down but the move was hectic, overwhelming, and to top things off, the kids and I have moved back in with my parents. We found an amazing home we fell in love with and things seemed perfect but of course, at the last minute, the sale fell through on the seller’s end…so here I am.

Don’t get me wrong; I am NOT having a pity party for myself at all. I’m trying to remain positive and know that everything happens for a reason and I’m taking full advantage of the fact that I’m here. I’m catching up on being behind on MONTHS of ceciliablue-related work; all pushed aside in the name of phone calls and emails to the “Bank” and packing.

Trying to get into a better place with things and will keep you all posted (of course) on the happenings of what’s to come, i.e., my newest illustration I just finished painting today…after having sketched it out two and half months ago!!! 

So here’s to my first blog in over a week, productivity, and making something out of all of this “nothing” I’ve got going on.

Smile. Be Happy. xoxo 

“Sometimes I wish for falling, wish for the release
Wish for falling through the air to give me some relief
Because falling’s not the problem, when I’m falling I’m at peace
It’s only when I hit the ground it causes all the grief”


ps-I was just told that I was a “blogger…and I do nothing with my life” so that’s always a good pick me up!

pps-I need a vacation…one where I’m skinny and can lay on ze beach in a yellow bikini without a care in the world!
ppps-Falling by Florence and the Machine is my go-to pick me up!

Notes from the Universe…

…They’re Pretty Awesome

What if today, Catrell, was your day? The most amazing day of your life, so far? A day that would change everything for the better? What’s already good would become great. What’s already great would become amazing. And what’s already amazing would become the stuff of legends.

And all you had to do to take advantage of the good and wonderful things about to happen for you, was treat folks with a true and eager kindness, think mostly of those things that please you, and go out in the world, just a bit, where you could meet, and mingle, and fall in love?

How much would you be clucking right now? Thumbs under your armpits, getting funky? Bobbing your head?

Start clucking baby! Beam, gush, preen! You got it…

P.S…Today’s your day, Catrell, yet if by its end nothing seems to have happened, it may just mean that tomorrow, for sure, will be the most amazing day of your life.

Happy Weekend…

I’m on my way to have a late date with the Man. I know I’ve been MIA this past week and all I can say is that life has been and is beyond crazy right now.

One of these days (soon) I’ll force myself to sit down and give you all a proper update.

For now…I took an inspiration photo today on my walk and had to share. It has such a feminine feel to it!

Happy Friday. Happy Weekend too!

Happy Birthday…April Fools!

Nine years ago I gave birth to a beautiful, rambunctious little girl I named Ahna Marie. She was a blessing in disguise, my saving grace, and has made us all laugh in hysterics over the years.

She’s a ham. She’s loco. She’s mine…and I’m a happy, proud Mom today!

Ahna Marie!

I hope you’re all having as wonderful a weekend as I am!
