I was in New York about a month ago on business and then took a couple of days off to have a vacation in New York with my hubby, Ben. It was New York and the wonderful vacation that led me to the name “grinning like an idiot”. Since then I decided to move my blog www.allartful.com to www.grinninglikeanidiot.com, because, well frankly it suits me. If you are a New Yorker, I was the one in the subway fumbling to try and get my camera and yelling “LOOK BEN, LOOK IT’S A RAT”, and then disappointed because I couldn’t get to my camera fast enough.
Up until I started working and the reality of the world hit me I would’ve qualified myself as a “daisy picker”; you’ve probably run across a “daisy picker” or two. If you aren’t sure, let me provide my definition of a “daisy picker”:
Someone without a care in the world, no bills, no real responsibilities, just out for the enjoyment of life itself.
If you look at your children, they would be qualified as daisy pickers and God willing will stay that way for as long as possible. They grin and laugh at everything, see amazement in everything.
I’ve always been a happy person and there is so much more I want to share than crafty things; like our vacations, good food, good times – whatever actually makes me smile – even funny tidbits of life, emails etc. I haven’t lost my ability to daisy pick, I strive to find more time to pick the daisies with my family and grin like an idiot.
Join me in Grinning Like an Idiot while we daisy pick through life.
