The Art of Failure
My main blog is called The Art of Failure - You can find it here. Please take a look and let me know what you think!
theartoffailure: On this rare day we are given once every four years, I challenge you to leap. I challenge you - no… I dare you - to follow the choice that scares you the most. To show up and jump happily into uncertain territory where unimaginable happiness and possibilities wait. Read More
theartoffailure: It’s common to believe that love is this thing that comes into our lives and changes everything. It is given the responsibility of fixing our problems, taking away our pain, making our lives perfect and turning us into desirable people. We expect love to sweep us off our feet and provide us a life happily ever after. Read More
theartoffailure: Any other year I might be getting ready for my Anti-Valentines Party. The invitation reads: “for the lonley, rejected, and broken-hearted.” It wasn’t really that I hated Valentines Day [I secretly love ALL holidays], it’s just that Valentines Day is one holiday I’ve never really been successful with - whether in or out of a relationship. This year I find myself recently out of...
Giants #WIN, Advertisements #FAIL
This post originally appeared on Monday, February 6, 2012 on AprilLynneScott.WordPress.com For me, the Super Bowl was a great experience. My team won, I had the most amazing spicy guacamole to munch on during the game, and I had a great time with friends in person and online. Disappointed, though? Yes. Not with the game, but with the advertisers and their so-called “social media...

In past years I’ve created vision boards as a part of my new year’s resolutions & goal-setting. This year I decided to try using Pinterest as my vision board. Follow this link to see my digital vision board for 2012: http://pinterest.com/aprillynnescott/2012-vision-board/
This morning in the middle of a perfectly good cup of coffee a dear friend of mine asked a question that came across my Twitter feed: “What’s the difference between a crush & loving someone? #Question” This stopped me in my tracks. I stopped reading the morning headlines. Put my coffee down and caught myself staring off into space. I hurriedly sent a reply: “Wow,...
2012 + 3 Words = Success →
I love lists. There – I said it. Grocery lists, packing lists, to do lists; I am a bit O.C.D. about organizing my plans. So then, it should be no surprise that I am a New Year’s resolution maker. I don’t do it because it’s the “in” thing to do or because I can’t set goals any other time of year. The end of the year just seems like a finite end to a period of time that I can look back on and...
A New Year - A New Hope
In the words of a good friend & author, Ashley Crownover, “What a beautiful, heartbreaking, life-affirming, agonizing, unimaginably transformative year this has been.” Each year, in these final moments, we are given a gift. The gift of hope. A chance to reflect on the lessons we’ve learned that propel us into a better tomorrow - a new year. A chance to reinvent ourselves,...
The holidays mean getting social in the original sense of the word… spending time with family and friends that know what you’re going to tweet before you tweet it… My Christmas Eve morning kicked off with a a home-cooked breakfast and a strong-brewed cup of coffee. Time in the kitchen spent rolling Cream Cheese Meltaways into little balls before dipping them in a lemon glaze was...
It's beginning to smell alot like Christmas...
The weather outside is frightful… and warm. But inside the scents of the season fill the air. Cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg… Mmmmmmmm - the smells of Christmas. The perfect combination of these flavors & smells all rolled into a delicious crispy & chewy oatmeal cookie with pecans - 1 cup butter; room temp 1 cup brown sugar 1 cup white sugar 2 tsp vanilla 2 eggs; room temp...
