Well, looky looky who we have here

I have been absent for a bit, no? I swear it wasn't on purpose. Life has got me moving in several directions and I am so thrilled and thankful! Things have been exciting and busy and keeping me running with every ounce of my being. I love and thrive for it!

So in no particular order I have been...

In a wedding and taking part in all the wonderful coinciding events leading up to a wedding. Seriously, my good friend got married and it was an AMAZING time from the start of planning all the way through the big day!! I'm sad it's over! But I'll be back to thoroughly blog about that in a day or two;



Working on an incredibly and stupendously fabulous special assignment at work;



Cooking a whole lot at home-thus cleaning up after working long, happily tiresome days;



Baking with my girlfran business partners;



Beginning the second phase of the Leadership Academy my company has;



Loving my Hunter Bear and of course the Pepper-Roni, even if they were bad girls and made a mess causing their vote off the island during clean up;



Oh and I figured this would be a great time to pick up running and train to run my first 5k. No big.


Needless to say, I am in my happy element. But I've felt a nagging feeling that I was missing something and that something is this space. I spent some time revisiting this ol'blog land of mine and it rejuvenated my want to visit and do something about having it!

Until we meet again,
M

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.
