The secret to having it all, is loving it all...

Happy Turkey Thanksgiving Day! May your day be filled with the Macy's parade bright and early; plentiful amounts of turkey-or preferred tradition of food midday; and a replay of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Wait for me, Clark and Eddie, I'm on my way!

Now without further babbling, here is a list of what I am most thankful for at this time:

1. Hunter Bear-my wonderful and loving person for life. Oh how thankful I am to have this creature in my world. Laughs and love to the moon and back.

2. I have a really great mom and family support system. Between mine and Hunter's people, we are truly loved unconditionally. What more is needed?

3. Obvi the dogters make me thankful. Those furballs bring joy, laughs, and the best hugs ever to the table. especially when said table has human food intended for sharing.

4. My chosen family: my friends. I have met people who are kind, smart, focused, funny, motivated, dedicated, loving, and out of this world.

5. Work and the ability to take a sick day when sick, a vacation day when vacationing, and the ability to pay my bills. In the world we live in this is no joke.

6. Education. This year has been a whirlwind of learning and I am beyond thankful for the opportunity to attend grad school for a subject I am so passionate about.

7. Twitter. Weird? Maybe. Typical for the world we live? Absolutely. The new age of living is not always great and yes plenty of people ruin a good thing. Twitter though, offers a unique way to communicate, stay informed, and find great resources for tons of things. Fave social media foreva eva. Eva, Eva.

8. Seeing the world through the eyes of babes. Our nephews and niece are such amazing little creatures. They love unconditionally and bring sunshine to everything they do. Insta feel good, people.

9. Fashion. Yes, I am thankful for fashion. That is all.

10. A free world. Yes, I often lose my faith in humanity but I also am thankful we live in a world where we can be who we wish to be. I do wish more people would use this wonderful thing for good versus evil and for that very reason I am also thankful for hope.

Gobble Gobble y'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:



Until …
