2013 y'all

2013 is looking like a good year so far. I've maintained my resolutions the ENTIRE year. What? It's only a day in? So? Go with me on this one:

-Clothes have been selected, accessorized no doubt, the eve before they are to be worn. I did this all the time growing up, one of those things my mom taught me. It can make all the difference for a busy morning trying to walk dogters, get in some cardio, prepare a healthy/light/resourceful-use-of-groceries-breakfast-for-two (no stopping even for coffee this year. I'm doing realllyyy good!)





I even put my main go-to bags in a roll call order. Gang's all here!!



-Our fridge is neatly assorted into strategically placed fresher foods to eat first; ready to grab bags of sorted fruit, snacks for work or workouts; coffee cream choices readily accessible right up front aimed to motivate freshly brewed cups of joe. I am really putting my previous failures of resolution to shame this year!




-I've made balanced, fabulous ifIsaysomyself dishes to enjoy. The girls too have been enjoying some amazing organic grub. Aside from finding jobs this year, the girls have decided to also eat better:







-Is she serious about the job thing, Pep?
-Who knows, probably some crazy resolution of hers again, Roni. Go back to sleep



2013 is my B this year, no? With a few projects in motion otherwise, I'd say the goals of 2013 are leaning towards health, strength, progression, and love. Hopeful also for everyone to get to enjoy and appreciate the same wellness. Oh and a little bit of fun mixed throughout the organized, obsessive behavior previously detailed...

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.
