#whereivebeen

I've lost my lifestyle blogging voice lately.  I've been screeching loud using my creative, editing, project planning and organizing voices though.  That's right, life of a business owner.  A new business owner.  Dream big!


I sat down to write this post 3 times before these particular words came to me.  It occurred that I missed this space and needed to push through whatever block I've formed for it.  It feels nice this time stuck and I managed to say something.


I have been keeping insanely busy with my regular full time job and my own business's happenings so I've been finding myself keeping other areas of my life incredibly simple.  Clean eating is a wonderful thing for this very reason.  It's easier than I ever thought and does amazing things for a person.  I also have been sleeping in once a week.  Some way, some how.  Sleep is so so good for a person and rejuvenates like no other.  These are proving to be ways that work for me to keep sane when the rest of the time I am running around like a goose for her geese.


Some things I'm loving lately:

-This as my background pic. It says fall, yummy, and gives me happy vibes.


-Strength training as I go. Finding ways in daily life to incorporate little practices.  It's possible weird but I find it easier to find small ways to turn a house chore into repetitions.

-Turning 30 so soon!  What a whirlwind and what a privilege.  Aging is a powerful opportunity to reflect and celebrate.

-Running when I can.  I feel stronger every chance I get to practice.

-Crock pot meals!  I got a new crockpot and am thrilled to use it.  Chicken tacos are on the current list.

-Thanksgiving plans.  We will be spending our time for turkey and grace in Alabama at my man's grandma's house.  Tons of family will be corralling from here, there, and every where to come together.  The house is a beautiful custom designed rustic style home on a large plot of land.  I'm already planning my outfit details around cozy cute flannels and the perfect black leggings and have my eyes on a certain type of boot I'll need to fetch.

-Fall TV.

-Temperature under 85.  Any temp lower than that is a celebration and is practically billowing, color changing trees here in FL.

That's all for now.  I'll be back.  I always am.

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.
