My gal Andrea

One of my most bestest, funnest, longest running friendships has been with Andrea, aka Ajean Louise Watson Freeman Harkins. Our friendship began as mere 13 and 14 year old honey childs and is live and in charge today. Andrea recently achieved one of her biggest goals and completed graduate school. She is now A. Freeman Harkins, PA. It is absolutely insane to wrap my head around this. We were only in high school what feels like yesterday, and didn't she just begin this journey? I am proud, proud, proud to say the least.

It has me thinking how Andrea is dedicated to anything she takes on and I value that this is a quality that is part of her true character. She works beyond hard and always has. Since I have known this gal she makes plans for herself and she meets them. She's driven and capable and focused. She says what she means and means what she says. She loves very hard and she cheers you on and she fights with such pride for what she believes. She tries her best to support even when we have differing thoughts or views. She loves my momma like I love my momma. She dotes on Hunter and has built her own friendship with him. She loves Roni and likes Pepper which is great!

Andrea is my best, good friend for a long time now. Me and Andrea? Like peas and carrots. Like apples and honey. Like iced coffee and croissants. I heart that fool for 4eva.

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…

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:

Irrational Rationing...

The past year of my life has been spent blogging; two of my four classes necessary for graduation required them and at my internship I blogged. Why not give the world my opinion on any subject I choose? It's free and it's mine to share, right? Absolutely!

So, to start, what do I want my tone to be? Tone is a very important factor, you know. It can make or break a piece. People want to identify a tone or purpose, which they often misconstrue as meaning the same thing. Oh, people-my favorite breed:)

So let's see. There's:
Informative? Will I provide people with knowledge about various subjects and try to teach? Eh.

How about super upbeat and positive? Like, I'll provide people with a reason to live to log on to read the next uplifting piece of blog. Eh.

How about super dreary? Dreary works. Most people would rather be perfectly miserable than divinely happy. Eh. Decisions.

Hmm, maybe all my posts will be so contemplative. Hey! That's not a bad racket. Contemplative in…
