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="">

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.

Simple blessings

I’m lying in bed, next to a snoring husband and my baby girl dogter sprawled out cozy as can be, while the rain falls down upon our roof. Gone are the days of spending a Saturday night downtown at a club, throwing beers back in a honky think, or galavanting around to anywhere with the lights on.

And I’m not mad about it. Not even a little bit. There is tilt no place I’d rather be than with hunter, Roni and our comfy sweet little home happily netflixing and writing this here post. It’s a good feeling indeed.

I count my blessings extra on nights like this and say a few additional prayers for love and comfort to continue on. I truly don’t ask for more than health, happiness, and love. Anything else is gravy.

To simple blessings for all.
