Egg-traordinary Breaths

While enjoying a portion of my day at the pool taking in this beautiful, Floridian Easter weather, I spent my time doing one of my most favorite, soul enriching hobbies: dissecting this month's Glamour magazine. Heaven, I'm in Heaven.....

There's a page where stars give advice, either their own words to live by or the words from others to them. The four snippets offered are pleasantly refreshing and uplifting to read. One particular star, you may of heard of her, Alicia Keys :), shared her grandmother's words: "Nothing before its time." So perfect. It feels like everyone rushes and pushes their way through life and while determination is never frowned upon, sometimes it morphs with being consumed.

Myself, like Alicia, have suffered from impatience since the day I was born two weeks late. I was probably fuming at the great big ol' world when I finally made my appearance. Patience is by far one of my weaknesses. Perhaps being an only child for 13 years didn't help any and I find myself as an "adult" constantly remembering to slow it down and let the cookie crumble not only as it will but when it will too. These are just the words I needed to embrace this gorgeous day.

Thank you Alicia Keys' Grandmother, you are incredibly wise. And thank you Alicia for patiently waiting to share such insight.

Take the time to enjoy the day, it won't be a regret. Happy Easter to all and to all a huge golden egg with the right amount of glitter, sparkle and overall fabulousness.

Us a couple of years ago on Easter. Patience never tested? Hmph, what's that like? :)

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Roni ate a crayon

The middle part. Perhaps like real food, is this the juiciest part? I don’t know why or what got into her but she not usually isn’t a newer or eater of non edible items. My girl is sophisticated; enjoys edamame with a little sea salt, broiled chicken, and sweet potato dog cookies, she’s not some gremlin with an anything goes pallet.

The number one thing that has changed with Roni since Pepper went to sleep would be her appetite. She eats, yes, but she’s veryyyyy particular. She won’t eat just to eat anymore. Like dogs do, she was always quick to scarf down food or treats because she worried Pepper would beat her to it. She be little but she is fierce when it comes to her grub.

                            Roni, girl!  You don't need to eat crayons! I'll meal prep for you, too!

Anyhow, we don’t love her new decision making abilities and would love it if she did not do such a mongrel thing to do. My little angel baby, love colorfully in a better way.

Simple blessings

I’m lying in bed, next to a snoring husband and my baby girl dogter sprawled out cozy as can be, while the rain falls down upon our roof. Gone are the days of spending a Saturday night downtown at a club, throwing beers back in a honky think, or galavanting around to anywhere with the lights on.

And I’m not mad about it. Not even a little bit. There is tilt no place I’d rather be than with hunter, Roni and our comfy sweet little home happily netflixing and writing this here post. It’s a good feeling indeed.

I count my blessings extra on nights like this and say a few additional prayers for love and comfort to continue on. I truly don’t ask for more than health, happiness, and love. Anything else is gravy.

To simple blessings for all.
