Do you do what makes your soul happy?

Live! From not New York! It's meeee from my couch! That's right. I am taking the rest of Sunday off. Please hold my messages and forward any concerns to PepperRoni Productions. Aside from blogging now, and maybe a few additional posts to be scheduled for this week, I am kicking back. I don't feel bad; I've already gone for a hearty walk, grocery shopped, and laundry is actively going. Laundry I don't mind. It's more therapeutic than daunting.

This may not seem like much, but I am usually so go-go-go. Oh, this is done? Great, now you can factor in ___. How about National Relaxation Day was this past Friday for $200, Alex? Guess who could not participate, due to a little known responsibility called work? This girl. So here we are this afternoon. I shall fore go the extra scrubbing the house could stand, I will not be bathing Roni as planned, and I've got two of the good pillows from the bedroom on my couch with me. And of course my DVR goodness. 22 Year old me, loved a good Sunday Funday full of mimosas, pools, and BBQ, while almost 29 year old me loves herself a good Sunday None Day, y'all.

While these things I speak of are so great, I also am making extra time for the non-things I appreciate. Like my mind and a focus on positivity. I mentioned last week that I was trying to incorporate meditation and reflection in my world. I am happy to report I am doing alright for a newbie. I mean, prior to now, I am that person in yoga class who prioritizes her grocery list in the back row. To turn off for a few and bring a natural kind of cadence to the moment, while not trying at all and just being...well...challenge accepted.

My goal right now is to maintain starting and ending the day with meditation practice. Between 15-20 minutes seems good. I am also shutting down from technology 1 hour before bed. My hope is to keep digitally detoxing more often because while it is great, and powerful, and the almighty way of our current world, it is exhausting to always feel attached to Twitter. Oh Twitter, you are my inspirational kryptonite. God love ya.

I also plan to get back to actual books. Books with pages...with plots...you know, the ones that offer mini vacations to a new place as each page turns? Bueller?

I hope your Sunday is wonderful wherever you are and this picture pretty much surmises this entire post:

How I Holiday Decor

I love some holiday decor.  It's fun to mix and match consistent pieces for it and and exciting to switch out the ones that have their set calendar time.  Like my pumpkins for example.  I have a set of them that are used for spooky purposes first, then for grateful hearts right after. Let the record show exhibits ... A and A.5: Halloween goodness           Turkey Day decor   Also, let the record show further exhibits of love for Halloween decorating: B: Witch, please C: Even the tissues have monsters on them Oh and D:   Roni hates us, Pepper giggles, we take far too many pictures of this.   If you couldn't tell, my favorite time of year to decorate is for Halloween.  #givemeallthegoblins   I'm pumped to further enjoy this holiday season with high levels of gratefulness and plan to focus on love and happiness more than anything.  Happy beginning of the end of year holiday season and decorating to you and yours!   Until we me

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
