Continued Thankfulness

I don't mind talking about Thanksgiving despite it being two weeks after it. It was one of my all time favorite holiday experiences ever.

On Wednesday before the big day, I traveled to my hometown and visited with tons of family. I have a big family and it was nice to be able to catch up with almost everyone that lives there. And despite my father insisting that my MPH of 35 on the main road through town, required constant commentary and reaching for the handle bar above his head for safety, I'd say the day was a success.

A few glimpses of some good times:


On actual Thanksgiving, Hunter and I hosted at our house. We had the perfect blend of family, friends, the yummiest of foods, cozy blankets to nestle with after too much of said foods, and beautiful Florida cold weather the entire day. We had the Macy's Day Parade playing throughout the morning as we prepared for our lovies to arrive and twinkle lights on all day. Magical!







One of my favorite parts of the day, was going with our nephew Connor to the tennis court in our community and letting him run his little legs all around. Here he is resting and contemplating the meaning of it all.


It was wonderful. All of it. I'm very thankful for life in general and appreciate a few extra special parts...

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.
