Blogtober 2014: Favorite Posted Instagram Picture

This is one of the best writing prompts ever! I love love love Instagram so it was quite difficult to choose just one picture that is my ultimate favorite.

I thought of several ways to have categories of favorites like one for the dogs, one of muh frandsss, one from TBT edition, and of course faves of my Hunter bear. Man, this was hard!

I decided to push myself to a commitment of what the assignment asks for. I have a way of not being able to commit to just one of anything, I mean JUST LOOK at my bangles collection! I opted to reflect based on what this fabulous writing prompt is asking for.

Low and behold, my favorite Instagram picture is..................



I chose this because it represents everything I hold dear: my Hunter, my beautiful baby girl dogters, our home, and all the crazy, good fun that life is. I mean, seriously, my little dog is wearing elf ears, and my big dog was about to take off after a squirrel or a deer, or a leaf, which is why the endearing father holding on to his pup was really him just restraining her.

To me, this picture represents all of the above mentioned, it's definitely a throwback (hello blonde Meggie), Hunter and the girls are there, and ultimately it's a representation of the support and love we have all around us from our loved ones. Or just maybe it's the elf ears on Roni, hard to say.

So this is my favorite Instagram picture. I cannot wait to see what yours is!

Until 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.
