Photo Challenge Day One: A Few of My Favorite Things

Some of you may remember the awesome blogging challenge I participated in for October, known as Blogtober. In short, the challenge was to write every single day of October, even on weekends. There were awesome prompts, like this one and this one, oh and this one too.

I loved this challenge the minute Helene and Taylor unveiled it. I met the goal of writing all 31 day too. On one hand, it was not an easy feat. On the other though, it was a breeze because I love blogging and writing and being pushed to get creative with a prompt. It was such a fun time and I was honestly sad to see it end.

So here we are starting April (which is crazy talk to me) and the fabulous Helene has invited all her virtual friends to jump aboard an Instagram photo challenge known as #30photosinbetween.

Basically, there are prompts again, but just like the writing challenge you can choose to adhere or pick a different pic to put up. For me, I've decided to accept this opportunity for both Insta and for blog. I need a push to get back to this space daily and Blogtober really made me happy so here we go!

A few of my favorite things...


Homemade breakfast quiche with veggies and mozzarella; a hot cup o'joe with vanilla; my beloved planner that I begin each day with; springtime colored nails; and any view of my engagement ring.

So there we have it. Super excited to see this through and take pics, write, and overall love on this creative space that serves as a virtual memory box to look back on. Thank you again to Helene for always motivating her fellow bloggers with her innovation.


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.
