I'll look back on this and smile because it was life and I decided to live it

I know, I know, somebody's been a really bad blogger and that somebody is me. I'm here, I have no fear, I'm ready to rock. To be honest I have absolutely no excuse other than I plain didn't want to write anything. Inspiration was lacking to put thoughts outside my head and that's pretty much it.

I love the feeling I have coming into today's post; I am eager and anxiously excited to get some words down and share the ton of pics I have that will aid in recapping where I've been. Since we last chatted, tons of fun life moments commenced so in no particular order:

My good friend Ronda, her sweet fur gal Tessa and I attended the Food Truck Bazaar in Avalon Park. This was amazing; the weather was clear and sunny, the food choices were plentiful and delectable:


I even managed to share the above photographed cupcake with Hunter when I got home instead of scarfing it down myself :)

We helped my dad celebrate another year of life and managed to completely throw him off and surprise him with not only our presence but a family birthday party. My sister said he was definitely getting antsy because no one was calling or texting early in the morning to wish him well. Ha, gotcha! As my father put it, he "couldn't have been more surprised to wake up with his head sewn to the carpet." (Griswold Christmas Vacation jokes all year long with this bunch, folks).

Mom's day! Sent cards to the lovely lady moms in our life; 19 people Hunter and I have to be thankful for!


My mom came to spend the weekend with us. Among other things, we enjoyed the Winter Park Farmer's Market, brunched with some of Hunter's side of our family (including our handsome squishy nephew Connor/Nonner), and enjoyed Goodfellas while feasting on some Macaroni Grill takeout. All around it was a splendid good time!


Oh and picked up this fancy little number for mi mama and had thoughts of keeping it for myself she was thrilled with it:


I spent time with more of the ones I love like my other Connor nephew:

This child is everything that is good in the world <3
I love my Tori so, so much! We went to see Modest Mouse and let me tell you, they are one of THE best live performances I have witnessed. I can say with complete confidence we had a really good time. I recommend seeing them any chance you get!

Fired up the grill a bit and enjoyed all the summer time veggies that are rapidly becoming available:


I've been quite diligent to participate in some #tbt fun and love scouting out the winning tickets each Thursday:


And speaking of scouting out winners in life, what would any a recap post be without my fur baby dogters. These two, I mean really? As mean nana (my mom) likes to say, "This is all they do. All. Day. Long. This is it."


Well, that is all for this catch up sesh. To surmise, it's been a fun month of May; productive in living and full of good times. I'm thankful for everything I've been able to share today and look forward to getting back to this space. Thank you for reading and keeping up with me!


Til we meet again,

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.
