Blogs are for Books

Hello out there to the land of getting back to routine, back to schedules, back to the exciting, the mundane, the anything in between.  Yes folks, tomorrow is the first Monday for many of getting back to work life, school life, meal prepping, outfit planning, you know the drill.

I feel productive already.  I grocery shopped, meal prepped a few days worth of calculated and healthy goodness, did some light yoga practices, bedding's washed, the rest of laundry is done.  Did I mention I only woke at noon today?  Indeed I did.  I stayed up late, like 2:30am late, reading The Girl on the Train, which I totally recommend BTW.  I started it yesterday and like Forrest, I just felt like running reading.  323 pages later, I decided to sleep in and let my body rejuvenate a plenty.  Those are a couple goals of mine this year: read more for leisure and sleep enough.  Both make me insanely happy and help me be the best me.

I've got two books on deck.  Up first is The Art of Racing in the Rain, which will undoubtedly leave me sobbing and hugging the dogs more than the usual 15 times a day.  And the other is a YA piece called Since You Been Gone.  I should start doing reviews of these so I'll add that in to my blog goals this year.  Each should help me stay accountable for both ambitions of reading more and blogging consistently.

Are you ready for not just any Monday, but the first of the New Year Monday?

Let's meet again,
M

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

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

So because of this intense love, I have manyyyyy happy, favorite Halloween memories and the pictures to prove this: Oh, the days of downtown Whorelando on Halloween y'all: Remember approximately 2006-2008ish, when Bret Michaels was attempting " to find love " over, and over again ?

Then that night a fabulous scarecrow and her goblin guy... Throwing back the Halloween love full force. Hey girl!: I love this holiday!!!!!! As for one specific memory, I do recall going trick
