Happy New Year's Eve eve!

With another year pretty much behind us, and the renewal of my domain name for this here space on the interwbez, I am feeling all kinds of reflective. For starters, I am incredibly baffled how yet another year has come and gone so quickly. Yes, it's the same amount of time as all previous years, minus leap years, but 2014 feels like a blur.

I definitely grew this year in terms of being realistic. I am a dreamer, and I long for dreams to come true. What I usually struggle with though, is the time leading up to making a dream come true. I am impatient and hasty at times, while contemplative and indecisive too. I hope to re-purpose these qualities into more productive versions of themselves during the next year.

I am quite excited for 2015. I've spent time reflecting and evaluating what worked and what didn't this past year, to prepare for the new. And I believe if you can identify your own key components, you are destined for goodness. Now among so many things that made 2014 awesome, allow me to share...

A few of my Favorite 2014 Moments::
-Graduating as Salutatorian with my MA in New Media Journalism
-Blogtober 2014
-Celebrating 7 years together with the love of my life
-Hosting our first real live Thanksgiving dinner at our home
-And anytime I laughed and/or smiled so big:








MARY MOTHER! That is not even half the fun times of this year. What a reminder to feel so incredibly thankful for living life!

And now may I present...

-My not so much resolutions, but rather Top 2015 Intentions List
:
-Be in the moment more-not always thinking of my next move
-Be off my phone at least 2 hours before bed
-Grow steadily with Yoga/Meditation practices
-Build our business with two of my very good friends
-Earn my social media certification
-Write a book over the span of 2015
-Travel more
-Cherish my lovey ones extra good


It's been great y'all. Talk to you next year!

Until we meet again,
M

  1. It was great catching up on your blog this weekend.

    Being OFF my phone aka disconnected is always a work in progress for me. When did we get so connected?!

    Love your goal of yoga/meditation. I was never a big believer until I joined a gym that was big into it and I am a lover now. :)

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.
