To the mommas

Such a random time of night that I'm coming to this space at.  For me at least.  I usually write much earlier than this.  I suppose I just got to thinking and felt like well why not?

Somewhat of some randomness, but one of my oldest, closest friends had her first baby this morning.  He is a preciously delicious little lamb and that's strictly my thoughts via pictures.  I will meet him on Friday and I can't wait to bite his toes.  No, there is not need for child services, I just express my love in the form of nibbling.  I mean, come on!  Baby toes!!!

Now, this is not my first friend to have a baby.  In fact, I have many nieces and nephews I adore.  This baby just got me thinking about mommas and the power there is in such a person.  My own momma has always been a shining star, super hero, end all fixer, hugger, lover, pusher, motivator, giver and the list goes on.  I can't ever say thank you enough to my own mom for all she has done or sacrificed in her own life for mine.  Note to self: send mom flowers.  And on Tuscan vacay.

I have always said my mom is a mom's mom, she was made for it.  She only had me by birth, but she has served as mom to so many others by affiliation.  She rallies and stands by her kids no matter what and she loves unconditionally.  She gives advice when asked and stands back when it's time.  She seems to just know how to respond.  For this, I am eternally grateful.

For my newest momma friend, I am so excited for you.  You've flipped the page to a whole new chapter and it's going to be exciting, tiring, exhilarating, challenging, and everything you never knew you wanted.  And that's just based on my own knowledge as a dog mother!  I can't begin to understand that love without tails being involved. #forgetthehaters #dogsarepeopletoo.

To the mommas, you are so much to all of us.  We would not be anything without you.

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 w

What makes me happy...Blogtober Day 19

What a timely topic to write about, seeing as its Sunday, and I LOVE Sundays! They make me very happy. Lots of things make me happy though. I am so thankful to say that! So in no particular order, allow me to kick back this beautiful Sunday and let some pictures tell you more about what makes me happy: The pawple who are always waiting and happy when you get home: Well, sometimes... This cat: Amazing company to go through life with: Food Trucks: #TBT: Laughing like this: Seeing the world through the eyes of the littlest people: Fashion: Kate Spade in particular: Family, with a highlighted focus on our generation: I feel very fortunate for what and who makes me happy. Tell me, what makes you happiest in all the land? Until we meet again, M

"I strongly believe if you work hard whatever you want, it will come to you. I know that's easier said than done, but keep trying"-Beyonce

I think it's safe to say at this point we all know who Beyonce is and that she does in fact rule the world. Need further prove from anything else you may know as evidence of this? Allow me to share an observation... Whilst walking for some fresh air and cardio Sunday morning, I found myself jamming to the Beyonce station on Pandora, a first in a long time I will add. Now, with other stations powered by a specific artist, one will find other artists taking up residence on that channel as well. Not in this example. While I admit I did skip a few of Bey's songs, sorry girl, only once did an Alicia Keys song play and once it was Destiny's Child (It was Bugaboo for the record and yes, it was as fabulous as I remember. I also need to remember to dig out my pager from storage). Anyhow, all other songs, whether prompted by skipping or what came next, was Beyonce every.single.time. There we have it; further proof Beyonce is queen of all the lands. Let me be clear, I am t
