theheartdepartment Spotted a local.
In my constant need to reflect on life, understand it, and make the most of it, I use this dolphin as a metaphor. Sometimes, you're swimming along and everything is going smoothly. You're doing your work. You're making some distance.
Then, bam, a boat slides up along side and takes all your thunder. You get churned in the turmoil of it's wake. But, just as you're about to stay shaken and let it pass you, leaving a bad taste in your mouth of fuel. You see the bow of the boat and freaking make a leap for it. Giving it all you have. Racing to the front in the hopes of changing perspective. Finding the part where the water is sliced and not only overcoming the hurtful sloshes from behind the boat, but finding a way that is easier than swimming alone.
That's what it's all about. Pulling out all of your strengths and pairing it with the strength of a situation. That's greatness.

theheartdepartment Crowdsourcing ~I want your opinions and need your eyes. I have narrowed what *I* like for a pendant position down to the middle column, because they look most like waves to me here. What do Y O U like best? These are part of the limited edition MARILYN LEGACY COLLECTION done in Sterling Silver and 18 karat yellow gold. These designs were of the few I have of my mothers; they were originally earrings hanging vertically. They will be offered as earrings as well as newly configured pieces because, well, because I want these designs all over me! Thanks for your help! Means a lot. 4d

theheartdepartment Someone's outside, she says. Don't worry lady, I gotchyur back. #waylintheboerboel #seriousface #southafricanboerboel don't play reindeer games 2w
  •   theheartdepartment @jessthetex yes! The mailman actually loves her and wants me to train his dog if he gets one. The UPS guy, however, took one look at her sitting inside the door and said -voice shaking, "Thats a big dog." He doesn't even knock now and does the drop and run. Hilarious! 2w
  •   theheartdepartment I love how protective they are @jessthetex a contractor the other day asked "is she going to eat me?" I said, "only if I need her to." 😈 2w
  •   jessthetex @theheartdepartment imagine our two together! #justrunaway 2w
  •   theheartdepartment Would be so good! @jessthetex we want a boy for her for a few reasons. You have 2 or more dogs, right? Do you think it would be a good move? 2w
  •   jessthetex We have 2 @theheartdepartment. Our other dog Sid is about 11 years old. 2w
  •   theheartdepartment Did Sid become distant when you got Leo? I've heard mixed things, and don't want to lose the little love bug Waylin is. She needs a playmate though and is very motherly too. Decisions... :) @jessthetex 2w
  •   jessthetex @theheartdepartment I think Sid thought Leo was for him. Oddly Leo accepts Sid as the boss. I think it depends on each persons situation. Sid is super chill now that he's older so I can't say how he would have reacted to a puppy in his hyper younger years. I think we added to our family once we could handle it. They love each other. 2w
  •   jessthetex @theheartdepartment I would have 7 more Leo's if I could afford to feed them all. 2w

theheartdepartment To stay in a natural state of mind, I have to lift my head up from straining my eyes to search for .0015 carat diamonds in the silver dust in my bench tray and step back from troubleshooting accounting software problems. The little and big stressors of running two businesses get bowled over with the hearty cleanliness of leaves and salt water. The woods and the beach catch my gaze, even when they are not within arms reach. #dontgetlostintgesauce #stayattached #rootstrong 2w

theheartdepartment Life is messy. Getting old and the shakedown that comes with it are just part of life. Cherish every moment with your people.

Make plans and then make adjustments as needed.

This little puppy girl and my freaking fantastic man make it all alright.
This was from back when my puppy was a puppy. Earrings by moi. #puppylove #acknowledgetheprocess
