About me

I laugh really loud. I also wear loud clothes. Writing, concerts, and photography are some of my favorites things. ( I do a Friday Favorite Video thing on BuzzFeed on a regular basis. Check it out! Holley’s Stuff on BuzzFeed )

Also, I try to do several bucket list goals every year.Β I didn’t do anything in 2016, except for work. Hopefully, 2017 and 2018 will be better. (2017 -not so good either. 2018 was slightly better.)

I’m still trying to figure out how to fit Salsa and scuba diving into my schedule and budget.

Please stop by again. I’ll be putting up new things because I like change. Except for furniture. I have almost never moved the furniture. If you visit, in 20 years, the furniture will probably be in the same spot.

I’ve gotten over my fear of the beauty salon and bad haircuts. It’s been about two years since I had boring hair. Also, I have bandanas in a variety of colors. I’m not trying to look cool. I’m trying to keep the hair out of my face.

Feel free to stop by with coffee.

Thanks for visiting! If you see a post that you like, feel free to share. Comments are always welcome. πŸ™‚

  1. Hi there. I really love following your blog and reading all your posts. So, I’ve taken this opportunity to nominate you for β€œThe Lighthouse Award”. You can find the guidelines for accepting this award at http://cinesolace.wordpress.com/2014/03/16/i-won-the-lighthouse-award/

    If you do accept blogging awards, please do accept this award as a token of the immense joy, satisfaction, and appreciation I get from following your blogs and reading your different posts. Your blogs are truly eloquent, informative, and succeed in making a connection with your readers. The other useful blogs your posts have directed me towards is another added incentive.

    I know that it takes a long time to complete the guidelines for accepting an award. So, if you don’t believe in accepting blogging awards, I totally understand. Any which way, it is and always shall be a pleasure following your blog.

    • Oh my goodness!! What a great surprise!! I was nominated for a Lighthouse Award just yesterday too. I’m so glad that you’ve noticed my little blog. πŸ™‚ I look forward to seeing more of your posts as well. I did add you to the post that I did today also. πŸ™‚
      Thanks again!! I really appreciate it!
      -Holley

      • My pleasure Holley. I too eagerly await all your future posts. Whatever I’ve read so far have been very interesting.

        I saw that you were already nominated by Donna. What I’d like to know is if you could win the same award a second time if somebody else nominates you? Can you please clarify this for me?

        Look forward to your posts and hearing from you. Cheers!

      • Well, I’ve been nominated three times for the Lighthouse Award. So when Donna nominated me I posted it again so I could nominate different people. I think you can accept nominations from different people. I combined your nomination and Donna’s because they were so close together. πŸ™‚
        That’s what I know. I don’t think there are any rules that the award police are going to get you for. lol πŸ™‚

      • Ha ha……lol…….well, we don’t want thosy pesky award police guys anywhere near us now, do we. πŸ˜‰

        Actually, the reason I asked you this, was because two separate people have nominated me for the same award too, and this is the first time I’ve been nominated for blogging awards. I’m relatively new to blogging (started six months ago, but thankfully the traffic is showing a steady growth). So, I too posted it again and nominated different people just like you. I was just wondering whether posting on the same award again makes any difference. Thanks for clearing that up. πŸ™‚

        Also, one more thing. My apologies for troubling you. It’s just that I have a few doubts since blogging is fairly new to me. Once I’ve completed the guidelines, do I just have to wait for the awards to appear on my blog? Do they just appear on the sidebar of my posts, or do I need to add any widgets for this?

        These questions might appear a tad silly, but I’m embarrassed to admit that I don’t know about these aspects of blogging. Also, none of friends are bloggers. Even though it’s a blogging award, I’ve been nominated for the first time for it and it seems like something nice for all the effort I’ve been putting into my blog.

        Could you just clear this last bit from me. Appreciate it. And once again, I apologize for taking up your time like this.

      • Oh yeah, no problem. You’ll have to add the image in the widget section. There is a section that you can choose called “image” then copy the url of the image. So double-click on image. It should enlarge. Then copy the address at the top. Paste that into the widget image box. And save. Go to your home page to make sure it worked.
        It’s not silly. I had to learn and nose around. And experiment with what worked.
        You can paste the image as soon as you get the award. Or you can wait until you’ve completed the guidelines. It’s up to you.
        You’re welcome! Glad I could help out. Let me know if I can help with anything else. I don’t mind at all. πŸ™‚

      • Thanks a ton, Holley. You’re a real sweetheart. πŸ˜€

        Lol……..funny thing is I knew about this widget all along, just didn’t know it was used for this purpose. I thought once I fulfill the guidelines, WordPress would automatically upload the awards on the sidebar of my blog. πŸ˜€

        You have been most helpful. Thanks so much for understanding. Really appreciate it. πŸ™‚

        One last thing and then I should be good to go (I don’t think there’s anything else that should confound me)…..How do I link my posts to people?

      • Okis……….thanks again……..I don’t think I’ll be troubling you anymore. πŸ˜€

        But, please feel free to ask me anything you’d like to know. Maybe not about blogging, since you obviously know more than me, but perhaps about anything else, I may be of assistance.

        Hope you enjoy my posts in future as well. πŸ™‚

      • As long as you acknowledge and link to both people who nominated you, I think there won’t be any issues. When I say issues, I mean hurt feelings and things like that.
        Most people appreciate the links and acknowledgement. πŸ™‚

  2. Great photo. Full of joy. Reminds me how long it has been since I went to a concert. Tooo long! Looking forward to enjoying your blog. Already having a great visit!

  3. Hi Holley. I really love following your blog and reading all your posts. So, I’ve taken this opportunity to nominate you for the β€œSunshine Award”. You can find the guidelines for accepting this award at http://cinesolace.wordpress.com/2014/03/27/i-won-the-sunshine-award-for-a-second-time/

  4. Hi Holley,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog, I’m glad you liked it.
    It’s neat that you laugh loudly and are good with wearing loud clothes. About the only thing I do loudly is SNORE! (or so I’m told). πŸ˜‰
    Cool picture there on the left, Las Vegas right?

      • Yeah, Vegas is always fun. I don’t really gamble much but I can spend days just wandering around watching the free on the streets and around town.
        Its also a great base for exploring around the area.

  5. Hey, Just saw something on my list from your Twitter account that looks like spam. Sent around 8 Central Time. If you tweeted it and I’m just misreading, I apologize. It’s just way different from what I usually see – “I Just Gained +25,000 followers from this site!” with a link. If that wasn’t you, you should change your password. Again, sorry if I’m misunderstanding. It just looks like something I should mention.

  6. You had me with “laugh really loud.” My husband’s laugh can be startling, like a gong. Love it! Fearlessly be yourself–and explore your space with all your laughter! –and java. Read several of your blogs. Can’t wait to read more!

    • Yeah, it’s cool. Seems like an alright dude. πŸ™‚ It’s ok. I’m not Posh either. lol I think I would have been a totally different spice girl. just kidding.

      • Lol, I can only commend you on your kindness at not calling me out on my spelling mistake which I just noticed, a cope of coffee ffs lol

        Good to meet you and glad to be following πŸ™‚

  7. Ohhh right. I forgot that Dowie Egbert’s was coffee. lol. I was like “Wasn’t the guy named Steve?” Omigosh. That is silliness. And Dowie Egbert’s works for me. Cream & sugar. lol Nice to meet you & Dowie Egbert.

  8. Hey Holley – thanks for the award -and thanks for your cool energizing blog posts – there is a lot of joy over here – and I am going to get some coffee for us right now — πŸ™‚

  9. Hey there! Thanks so much for visiting and following my blog. πŸ™‚ I’m a tiny bit behind because I was away for a bit and had some stuff going on, but I’m now following you too! πŸ™‚ Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
