Day #15

Expecting Mothers.


I have not yet experienced this wonderful experience, but I look forward to it.

I have a nurturing personality.

One of my biggest dreams in life is to become a mom.

Since I have not yet been pregnant there isn't much that I can say about it.

I do love pregnancy photos.

I also believe that expecting mothers need to know that they have support.

Especially the soon to be single mothers.

A very close family friend is a single mother and what an amazing woman she is!

Her son is growing up to be a fantastic boy and maybe she didn't have all of the support in the world, but she had the support of many loved ones and she is one of the strongest women I know.

Knowing that not everyone gets the support they need I wanted to give some of my own.

What To Expect

Mother to be,  I would first like to start by saying congrats and hang in there! I am positive that you will be a fantastic mother. I hope this brought a smile to your face! 
Love from a stranger

Is there someone you know that could use some support or a word of encouragement?

Always, Jayme Lynn

Day #14


My favorite day so far.

Day #14.

The snow is still here after the Blizzard of 2011.

Walking to Walgreens with Alex...

I am pondering about my unexpected act of the day. 

As I have said in previous posts I love leaving surprises that will put a smile on someones face.


I left a mark.

On a tree.

For you!

This is...


I felt very attached to lou for some reason.

Maybe it is because I created him and he put a smile on my face every time I thought of him.

Lou lasted a few days, which is longer than I thought.

Is there a creation that has left a smile on your face?

Always, Jayme Lynn & Lou

Day #13

Mail Boxes.

I have always had a love for USPS mailboxes.

Whether old.



Kind of boring.


Or just your ordinary home mailbox.

All are appealing to me.

Who doesn't love dropping in a letter and then looking to see if it is still there?

Finally getting a long awaited package?

Or Finding a really old mailbox that should still be used due to its mass amount of character?

All of the love letters and postcards dropped into mailboxes make my imagination go wild!

On Feb. 2 Alex and I spent forever out and about after the blizzard.

(a recent post shows our wonderful adventures through the city)

We had just warmed up and were heading out again.

Alex was taking pictures and I noticed a woman having some bad luck.

She dropped her purse and soda and was heading for the mail box.

Due to the blizzard the night before the mail box was pretty much covered and hard to reach.

I walked towards her waiting for the box myself and asked if she needed help. 

She was so grateful for the kind gesture.

Conswella And I.
Next time you see someone having a hard time maybe you could take a minute and offer your help.

Always, Jayme Lynn

Day #12

The Homeless.

Unfortunately, there are thousands of people young and old with no bed to go home to at the end of the day.

Every city has people asking for change or food.

All around the world are people asking and needing help.

People tend to forget that they are people just like everyone else.

With stories and memories.

And have made mistakes and taken wrong turns just like you and me.

We all end up in different places.

Before judging or walking by with disgust think about their stories. 

When I lived in the Loop of Chicago there was a man that I walked past everyday.





Everyday he was out greeting everybody on the way to work and school.

He put a giant smile on my face each time and since moving I still walk over the bridge he greets on.

On Feb. 1st I visited my near by Walgreens closest to school.

(This was also the day the Blizzard of 2011 was brewing)

Looks better than it was.

This man is there almost everyday.

He is alway bent over.

He was trying to reach his dropped glove.

Instead of passing by like the hundreds of others...I stopped.

Picked up his glove and helped him.

There wasn't too much I could do for him.

I was sad thinking about where he was going to stay tonight during the blizzard.

I am not asking you to give all of your money to people asking for it or to take them home and let them sleep in your guest room.

It is true that some people may use the money for things other than food.

Maybe just stop and hear their story.

Bring them a warm cup of tea.

Or even a sandwich.

Do you pass by someone needing help and think about how you would feel in their shoes?

Always, Jayme Lynn
