Artful Friday! 🎨

Good afternoon everyone, and happy Friday. I hope you are all having an amazing friday. My day has been full of walking the block with my little guy collecting leaves for an art filled leaf tracing day. It is a beautiful cool autumn day and I am in love with all the vibrant colors and the smells in the air. I also decided while Caden was tracing and coloring to make a couple batches of cooking. So now my home smells of yummy goodness, laughter, and beautiful fall color.

Well I hope you are all having a peaceful, artful, full of color fall Friday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Autumn rain.

Good morning everyone, and happy Thursday. I was woken this morning to the first rain storm of autumn, and my gosh is it beautiful. I can’t even express how much I love the rain and our state is definitely in need of it too. I just have this feeling that today is going to be a wonderful day.

Well I hope you all have an amazing, and peaceful rest of your pre tgif.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Healthy eating.

Ok I also forgot in the mix of all the bad that has been happening that I created a new healthy recipe. It’s called brown rice and quinoa with sautéed vegetables. What I did was mix 1/4 of a cup of brown rice and 1/4 of a cup of quinoa in my rice cooker I then added about 1 1/2 cups of water. I then added my spices a pinch each of sea salt, garlic powder, pepper, and chili powder.  I then cut up one onion, one jalapeño,  and one bell pepper. I then sautéed it over medium heat in extra virgin olive oil (Evoo). Once finished I added the vegetables to the rice cooker stirred and then let cook approximately 45 minutes or until rice is tender and most of the moisture is gone.

I will post pictures below and I hope you all enjoy. 

Have an amazing first day of autumn.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Literally one thing after another, and it’s time for a change.

Good afternoon everyone,  I have been so sick here lately and it has been going around. Today is the first full  day of fall (my favorite season) but it is not going very well at. I’m sitting at home and all I can keep thinking is I need to get my own place for my son and myself. I’m so tired of my dad’s yelling at both myself and my son and I just can’t take it anymore something needs to change I don’t have half the problems with my son when he isn’t here or when we go out by ourselves.  I just need a change, something needs to change.

Well I hope you all are having an amazing first day of autumn.

Happy Wednesday everyone.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Looking up!

Good morning everyone,  so as I sit here waiting for the train I have decided to reflect back on how much I have not only grown as a person but as a woman. Even at almost 27 I am still struggling to be a strong independent woman, but I know that I am getting there.

So what I ask you all to do is pick a time and reflect just to see how far you have come.

Well I hope you all have an amazing, wonderful, peaceful Wednesday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

The good the bad and the better.

Good evening everyone and happy Saturday. I was going to start this out by saying how I am ok, but in all reality after everything I have been through this weekend I think I am just starting to be ok. I have had my entire life as I know it turned upside down in the matter of a day. I became a single mom for the second time meaning old habits with my now ex die hard. I just think what hurts me the most is that he didn’t even say anything he just stopped communicating with me all together, but enough about that on the other hand this has given me the inspiration and motivation I needed to start hitting the gym even more often. I have decided to do an hour at the gym and an hour of weight lifting and my goal is to shoot for 7 days a week. 

Well I hope you all have an amazing and enjoyable weekend.

Also wanted to say the one thing I have been telling myself over and over these past few days is “he may have taken my heart with him, but he will never take the smile from my face or the happiness from my soul.”

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Happy labor day!!!!

Good afternoon and happy labor day everyone. The past 2 days have been an amazing few for me as I have hit the gym at my apartments both days and I can’t even begin to express how amazing I felt after both visits. It’s almost given me a renewed sense of being and a huge adrenaline rush. I have felt more alive these past few days then I have felt my whole life, which to me is really sad.

It is also causing me to make healthier decisions in what I eat and what I do. I may be a heavier woman but that is going to change.

Well I hope you all are having a fabulous, relaxing, and peaceful labor day.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.
