#FTSF~My Favorite Movie of All Time

Finish the Sentence Fridays
My favorite movie of all time... the Little Mermaid, Disney style.  I love the songs.  I love the story.  Yes, I have heard the "it is bad for a girls self image" and all that jazz, but all in all, it's a WAY better story than the crap they have out now!

Go grab your little one and watch it now.  You'll love it (if you don't already)!

Now don't forget to come back next week!  Our sentence is:
I hit a turning point in my life when I...

TT~Meet Heather

Dawn’s Disaster

Thank you so much to all of you who have participated in Traveling Tuesdays.  I'm taking a break from the concept, but hope that people would like to write again this fall/winter.  Give me a holler or stop by my contact page, if you are interested.  

I am going to start 20 Tuesdays in June.  I hope that some will join in.  I will post the list for 20 Tuesdays on June 4, 2013.  Think SUMMER bucket list!!

Hi everyone! I'm happy to be here today for Traveling Tuesday!

My name is Heather and I have been blogging at The Destiny Manifest since 2001. My hobbies include writing, reading and knitting. I absolutely love blogging and writing, but I also really love spending time with my family, so it's a delicate balance (and when I lose that balance, family always wins... which is how it should be).
Traveling Tuesday - The Destiny Manifest | Heather
I am married to David, a very talented artist and the love of my life. We met when I was 13 years old (he was 17) and he was my date to my senior prom. I married my first husband in 2000 and we divorced in 2007. David and I remained friends over all the years... he is my oldest and dearest friend. We began dating in 2008 and the rest, as they say, is history. He has the uncanny ability to make me laugh when I'm feeling the worst, and I feel very lucky to have his arms around me at the end of every day.
Traveling Tuesday - The Destiny Manifest
I have two tween daughters, Lakin and Addah, from my first marriage. These two girls are the light of my life, even when they're driving me crazy! They are 17 months apart in age, which made life very interesting when they were little (can you say 2-under-2?) and continues to keep us on our toes, even now. They are smart, funny (hilarious, actually), and crafty as can be -- and by that I mean they love to do craft projects and that they're sly little ladies.
Traveling Tuesday - The Destiny Manifest's Girls
In addition to our big girls, David and I also have one daughter together. Clara was stillborn on July 1, 2012, when I was 42 weeks 3 days pregnant. This tragedy was completely unexpected and the past year has been a difficult one for our family. We try to remember and honor Clara in any way that we can, which has included a Random Acts of Kindness project, a Mother's Day Name Project, the knitting of many blankets for the hospital, and raising awareness about stillbirth and infant loss. You can read Clara's birth story on my blog, if you'd like.

On The Destiny Manifest, I blog about everything to do with our little family - raising tweens, recovering from financial disaster, mental health issues, dealing with the grief and guilt of infant loss, setting goals for our family and sticking to them, and squeezing as much happiness out of each day as we can!

I hope you'll come over and visit my blog, or follow me via social media. I love making new friends!

Inspired Tuesday

Happy Tuesday!

I am so sorry I missed last week. Life kind of just got busy.. and well you know how that happens.

Due to June being super busy for me ( my mom is coming to visit for a couple of weeks!!) I won't be doing any features with Inspired Tuesday in June. I love you all, and you all write beautiful posts, I just may not be able to visit all of you over the next month, but I will try my best.

And with that, on to this weeks free printable:

You can download this from HERE.

What is Inspired Tuesday?

Each Tuesday Not So Ugly Ducklings hosts Inspired Tuesday along with two awesome co-hosts Dawn's Disaster and Peanut Butter and Jelly, where we offer up a free printable with some encouraging words.
Me and my co-hosts believe that any post written can inspired someone else, whether it is a personal story, a photography, a recipe.. whatever, so I invite everyone to link up their posts no matter the topic.

The rules are simple:
1) Follow Not So Ugly DucklingsDawn's Disaster and Peanut Butter and Jelly  in any way of your choosing.
2) Follow this weeks featured blog(s).
3) It would be nice if you added the Inspired Tuesday button to your post, or even just a link back to the link-up.
4) Try to visit others and be inspired!
That's it.
Here is the button if you would like it:
