Day 353 – Kindness & Joy

Please choose kindness. Choose Joy. Until tomorrow. Jenna Day 353 was created in pastels.

Day 350 – My Mom’s Perspective

My mom has been with me everyday and at every step through each apple. She has cheered each high and she’s felt my lows probably more than I have. When she told me she was writing about her impressions of the last 10 years I felt a huge sense of relief. I cried when I […]

Day 349 – Take Out

My mom always said, “Don’t go to the supermarket on an empty stomach.” Maybe not her most thought provoking piece of advice but words to live by for sure. I think tonight I could have listened to that advice when making my apple. All I’ve been able to think about for the last hour and […]

Day 348 – Sending Love & Light

Sending love and light to so many people tonight. I’m thinking of you and grateful for each and every one of you. Until tomorrow. Jenna Day 348 was created in acrylic and watercolor. *** I do have a post that my mother Susan has written. I will post it – I’m just not sure when. […]

Day 347 – Surviving The Difficult Days

Today was a difficult day. We all have them. We all get through them. I’ve discovered the great outlet of writing this past year. So – I wrote it all out and I feel so much better. I haven’t posted on The Fight Like A Girl Club website in a couple of months so my […]

Day 343 – The Apple That Never Sleeps

Day 339 – A Real Treasure

There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island. – Walt Disney Today’s apple, post, and quote are for my friend Holly. First and foremost because she is a treasure. She is a sparkly, shiny box of valuable goodies. She is passionate, creative, and funny and she has AS. […]

Day 338 – An un-Saturday, Saturday Apple

I was all ready to post a Saturday Apple. In order to attempt to have a life that went beyond apple making, I instituted the “Saturday Apple.” These apples have often times been simpler images with almost no post. The decision to reel in my apple life on Saturdays may have saved not only my […]

Day 337 – “My, What Big Pies You Have!”

Yes, it is again Fairy Tale Friday! It was time for a bit of levity and as I was brainstorming fairy tales possibilities, this idea came to mind. And… well –  I just had to. Of course – they are apple pies. And, look closely – Little Red Riding Hood has some apples in her […]
