Do all things with love

Hello to all and to all hello,

Wowza, Thanksgiving break was grrreat. We did it all: travel, food, family, friends, laughs, drinks, gatherings, homework. That last part is an eh, so-so feeling. Bitter because neither Hunter nor I could escape homework entirely but sweet because he is finishing up another semester of school and I am finalizing my thesis! In fact, I am taking a much needed break right now and escaping to the blog(see: holy)land to regain what sanity I can conjure up. Oy, I need to lie down for a week after this one kids.

Anyhow, we ventured back to my hometown this year to partake in some thankfulness and turkey. I introduced Tori, Hunter's babiest sister, to my happy and loud family. Good news is she survived wonderfully and I think she may even come back for another get together. I think. It was all good, everyone was in funny spirits, which is my favorite part about my family. Boy they can be quite humorous. Inappropriate but still humorous. I would not change a thing in fact.

I ventured out to one of the local watering holes with some girlfriends since our quaint, little hometown is known to attract all kinds of folk, both past and current residents, during holidays. It was fun to gather with people you knew at different times in your growing up life. My no longer baby girl cousin Jordan (She's 22! I could throw up) joined us and it was a trip to hang with her. She is beyond funny and so full of life and enjoyment. I saw many old friends and it was like time never passed. It was a good time had by all for sure. For those who say you can't go home again, I say sure you can. Just go home and get out to have a drinky to wrap your head around it.

On with it I say. Show the people the pictures!!

My Jordan. Homie for life.


My heart sings for these two cats.


This fool. Nestled like a turkey wedged between the couch. Of course we helped her out! After taking a series of pictures of course. Hey, she was totally content before we noticed. Snug as a bug my friends. We should all be so lucky to just let go and get cozy from time to time, amiright?


Another look at this cutie pie honey bun.

Woof, tis the season.

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 w

What makes me happy...Blogtober Day 19

What a timely topic to write about, seeing as its Sunday, and I LOVE Sundays! They make me very happy. Lots of things make me happy though. I am so thankful to say that! So in no particular order, allow me to kick back this beautiful Sunday and let some pictures tell you more about what makes me happy: The pawple who are always waiting and happy when you get home: Well, sometimes... This cat: Amazing company to go through life with: Food Trucks: #TBT: Laughing like this: Seeing the world through the eyes of the littlest people: Fashion: Kate Spade in particular: Family, with a highlighted focus on our generation: I feel very fortunate for what and who makes me happy. Tell me, what makes you happiest in all the land? Until we meet again, M

"I strongly believe if you work hard whatever you want, it will come to you. I know that's easier said than done, but keep trying"-Beyonce

I think it's safe to say at this point we all know who Beyonce is and that she does in fact rule the world. Need further prove from anything else you may know as evidence of this? Allow me to share an observation... Whilst walking for some fresh air and cardio Sunday morning, I found myself jamming to the Beyonce station on Pandora, a first in a long time I will add. Now, with other stations powered by a specific artist, one will find other artists taking up residence on that channel as well. Not in this example. While I admit I did skip a few of Bey's songs, sorry girl, only once did an Alicia Keys song play and once it was Destiny's Child (It was Bugaboo for the record and yes, it was as fabulous as I remember. I also need to remember to dig out my pager from storage). Anyhow, all other songs, whether prompted by skipping or what came next, was Beyonce every.single.time. There we have it; further proof Beyonce is queen of all the lands. Let me be clear, I am t
