The Glory Days

Today is one of those dreamy Florida early spring days.  It feels warm but not hot and its sunny and beautiful.  This, this is why I have stayed in Florida.  I think about it as I get older and more used to sunshine and humidity and I don't believe I would live very many other places.  Of course never say never, I'm just so accustomed to this atmosphere and I genuinely like it.  There's a reason it's a desired retirement/vacation spot.  Of course ask me that in July when it's 103...

One thing I associate with these kinds of days is the leisure life of adolescence I led before.  The days where I'd get up for an early class or two at UCF (I loved earlier classes always, something refreshing about getting the grind out of the way and obviously easier parking!), to sauntering back home to hit the gym and then lay out at the pool.  About 4 o'clock I would head inside to get ready for my serving shift and wherever the night might lead after.  Study, sun, fun, hustle, repeat.  The glory days!

I'm off to admire the blue skies and think about my formally tanned toes.  I would never now not wear my beloved sunscreen!! #isirishwillburn #whydidntigetmymomsoliveskintone #didntgetitfromymomma

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

How I Holiday Decor

I love some holiday decor.  It's fun to mix and match consistent pieces for it and and exciting to switch out the ones that have their set calendar time.  Like my pumpkins for example.  I have a set of them that are used for spooky purposes first, then for grateful hearts right after. Let the record show exhibits ... A and A.5: Halloween goodness           Turkey Day decor   Also, let the record show further exhibits of love for Halloween decorating: B: Witch, please C: Even the tissues have monsters on them Oh and D:   Roni hates us, Pepper giggles, we take far too many pictures of this.   If you couldn't tell, my favorite time of year to decorate is for Halloween.  #givemeallthegoblins   I'm pumped to further enjoy this holiday season with high levels of gratefulness and plan to focus on love and happiness more than anything.  Happy beginning of the end of year holiday season and decorating to you and yours!   Until we me
