I am so excited to begin a new year!

I don't have drastic plans or crazy intentions, I'm just so eager to see what another chapter brings!

2016 was in short a very, very good year.  The biggest thing this year will be marked in memory for is our business.  Not only did I make the jump to working full time for mine and Hunter's business, but we have grown in all categories we use to measure our development.  I am thrilled to wake up each morning and get to work; I don't ever get the Sunday night sads because tomorrow is Monday and wahhh I have to go back to an unfulfilling or unhappy work situation.  That, my friends, is absolutely nothing to snarl at fo sho!

On a personal note, my dad battled cancer twice and kicked its ass twice in 2016.  For that, I am happy to move forward to a new year.  No one wants their parent to struggle or get sick and I am thankful every day for healing and forward movement in this wild and beautiful life we get to live.

For 2017, I suppose I do have some intentions, as I like to call them:

A grateful heart- I believe myself to be a very familiar person with gratitude.  I plan to further grow my appreciation for little and big things alike.

Stay hydrated- if you've read this blog for even a few posts you know I'm always barking about water consumption. #brokenrecordpartyofone

Work hard, be nice- one of my favorite quotes by Conan O'Brien explains this concept perfectly.  I can attest it works and will keep it up.


Digital detox- Especially with working in online marketing/advertising and being so in tune with the digital landscape, I'm a huge proponent for stepping back and enjoying a world without such connectivity.  It's all about balance.

Celebrate love and laughter- two of my favorite things in life.  I will hug my Hunter and baby girl dogters as much as possible, I will embrace giggling uncontrollably, and I'll look forward to every opportunity to wear extra glitter.  Who am I kidding, any ol'Wednesday is a fine day for extra glitter!

Thankful for a fabulous and productive 2016, motivated to see what we can do with 2017.  I wish the same for you and yours <3 span="">

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

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

Blogtober Day 9: #TBT Best or Worst Halloween Memory

The spookiness, the creative costumes, and the overall happy and exciting presence it brings with it each passing year. 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 ? We loved that hot mess express so Hunter was him and I of course was his rock of love: I don't want to brag, but with my boos from work, we were part of Bro White and the Seven Dwarfs last year in our company's contest and we won! 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
