Flower Devour

Never get so busy making a living you forget to make a life. Catchy right? Well I cannot take credit for such words of wisdom but I can tell you both Hunter and I loved the plaque we purchased from Kirkland's and then proceeded to hang above our dining table that read such insightful words. Upon choosing to hang it where we did, we reasoned it was fitting since most families don't have dinner sitting down at their table any more and we should try to remember to slow down every so often. Poetic, I know.

These days both the Bubsy and I run, run, run all week long trying to get to Friday at 6:00:

Mondays are Mondays. If you learn one thing as an adult it's to let the misconception that Mondays are evil go and wear red heels to offset the anger you used to feel for that day of the week.

By Tuesday we're itching for the weekend and aggravated by all forms of traffic annoyances, frustrated that the dogs aren't behaving and in bed by 10 ready to wake up and it not be Tuesday.

Wednesday is obviously hump day and that alone makes everything seem better.

Thursdays? Now Thursdays offer hope. It means you've almost made it and the light at the end is peaking through the cracks of the tunnel encouraging you to hang on, just one more day...

Friday, Friday, Friday! Where have you been all week? Just waiting to show your self you old fool! Everything is light hearted and that pep in your step is back, really showing through the use of peep toe pumps. Or for Hunter a simple pullover Polo as opposed to his button downs for the rest of the week.

Only mere hours stand between us and our two days of
sleep, outdoor activities such as the local Farmer's Market, jogging on the not so hidden trail we discovered, or taking Nephew Ethan on the swing "one more time"(his favorite question after he finds a new activity he enjoys). Lounging around Barnes and Noble, producing fresh clean bed sheets and towels for the Ro to make herself comfortable in, brunching and doing whatever else comes our way because it's what we work all week to be able to do, takes up the rest of our well deserved time off.

Refreshed and revitalized, no not my hair, we're almost ready for the new week. Almost, meaning time to hop to it and grab the red kicks down from their ledge in the dressing room to set out because we all know Mondays still are Mondays. If the morning isn't a tid bit chaotic it offsets the whole rest of the week :)

Happy May Flowers to all!

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…

Change Has Arrived

New adventures lie ahead.  I've left my full time job in college admissions and am now full time into mine and Hunter's business.  I'm working on a few other ventures so when I know more I'll follow up on that.

I spent 6 years working at my last job and while I always knew I would go to my business full time eventually, it hasn't truly hit me that I'm not just taking some vacation time and spending a few days away.  I'm ready for my new normal though.

It's times like this I love having a lifestyle blog.  I'll look back on this post at some point and the thoughts had, the feelings felt will all come back.  This is a big milestone, leaving a corporate type job and going full speed as a small business owner.  Yay!!

I've got big plans for the next.  Excited for what's to come.



Let's meet again,

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:
