The 4th of Juuuly

America, I love ya!

I am beyond thankful to be live in this great land. I love 4th of July just the same. It's nice to have a day to celebrate a solid quality like independence. Americans by nature and from early existence are driven, independent, strong crusaders. The whole concept behind our foundation is one of setting out to start new and chase a wild idea that others are willing to fight you so much for, they will start a war. There are days we can feel like we fight a war or we can acknowledge our wildest ambitions. Me? I'm trying to stay focused on: success as a loving other half to Hunter; success as a young professional, some days sure I feel like I'm walking backwards in high heels but I know I am dancing on the right track at this time. Sharp turns and curves welcome!; success to be a good person with a heart of gold, a mind of compassion, and a drive that carries me from one goal to the next.

And I'm thankful for the ability to live in a world where it's all possible.

Forever and ever Americana, Amen.


I'm thinking this:
sweet fun snack to whip up

Linner meal idea for the 4th
In between hot dogs of course

And I hope to be wearing something comparable to this, this, or this.



Happy Independence Day loves!

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.
