Long time no blog

Life has been absolutely crazy, I honestly haven’t been blogging because this page has been giving me so many problems every time I would try to write a post and to tell you the truth is honestly don’t even know if this one will post, but I’m giving it a shot. That’s all I can do right? So to start I have been going through a whole array of emotions a lot of them being sadness and depression. A lot of things have been going on and I feel alone a lot of the time. I feel as though I have lost a lot of myself, I am not the same person I was a year ago. A year ago I was happy and didn’t have to force myself to smile, I know I have always been one to say never fake how you feel but even that motto has changed for me, I find myself saying “fake it till you make it.” But the truth is what if I never make it and that’s what’s killing me, I have been faking it for so long now I have lost what truly makes me well me and I’m not sure if I can ever get that back. 

Well I have bored you all enough for today,
Until next time

Happy Thanksgiving! 🍗🍜🍗

Good afternoon everyone, and happy thanksgiving.  I hope you are all having a peaceful thanksgiving home with your families making amazing memories that you can look back on the following year. I also wanted to stop by and reflect on this past year. I feel that today is a great day to look back on the years events and be thankful for those events that have brought us all to where we are today. Have you ever stopped to think back on a certain event in your life and wondered how your life would have turned out had that one event happened differently? Every event, every experience, good or bad has brought you to the exact moment you are at right now. Every event is a life lessons and every life lessons brings you to exactly where you need to be.

Well I hope you all have a very peaceful day. Fill your day with memories with loved ones and fill your bellies with a bountiful feast.

Happy Thanksgiving,

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Set back! 😩 :oops: :| 😓

Good morning everyone and happy Sunday.  So I just wanted to say I have been fighting my own demons on the fitness front. I have had a major set back and have just had so much on my plate that I never seem to be able to get to the gym. I have been wanting and craving the gym here lately but the end of the day comes sooner then I want, and now my allergies are bugging me like crazy. I have been so happy with my life here lately but the only thing I am not happy with is my horrible fitness and health decisions. 

Hopefully I can get to the gym today but if not I hope I can at least workout at home.

I hope you all have an amazing, relaxing, and healthy Sunday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

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.

It’s almost September!

Good morning everyone, and happy Saturday. I can’t believe we are coming to the end of another month and another season. Fall is just right around the corner and I can smell it in the air. The night are becoming cooler and crisp and the days are becoming shorter, the leaves on the trees are starting to change and the sunsets are more magical.

This season definitely feels like it’s going to be a magical one at that. I have an amazing feeling about this half of the year.

I also wanted to say that my back is feel much better than it did on Monday. Yesterday we took a tour of the state capital and I was in awww the whole time we sat in on an assembly and a legislature meeting and it was the most amazing thing I had ever witnessed. There are beautiful paintings and sculptures strewn throughout the 5 floors of the capital and the rotunda oh the rotunda, it is absolutely amazing and beautiful.

I also took a visit to the Vietnam memorial and the feeling there even after years is one of somber silence, while my son and dad were over eating lunch on the law of the capital I took a walk through the rose garden and was shocked at the beauty this garden holds. Types and colors of roses that I have never seen before and the smell made me feel like I was in Alice in Wonderland.

Well I hope you all have an amazing, safe, adventurous, and pleasant weekend.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

10 things you may or may not know about me.

Good morning everyone, and happy Monday.  All weekend I was trying to think about what exactly I would write about come Monday and I decided to do a 10 things you may or may not know about me some of the things I have mentioned in prior post and some I haven’t. Ok so here we go.
1. I live in the big city of Sacramento, California.
2. I don’t have a drivers license and am terrified to learn how to drive. 😨😨😨
3. I am currently writing a children’s book.
4. My mom passed away when I was 14 from a very hard battle with lung cancer.
5. I have an addiction!  Yes I said it I am addicted to coffee and tea.
6. While still on the coffee topic I drink my coffee black. ( no cream, no sugar.)
7. Throughout my early childhood my mom battled with an addiction of her own with alcohol.
8. I don’t drink or party.
9. Here’s one that I know is kind of cliche for most bloggers but I am very shy and soft spoken.
10. I have a huge passion for photography.

Well that’s it those are the 10 things you may or may not know about me.
I hope you all enjoyed my little jaunt.

I hope you all have and amazing, positive, and passion filled Monday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

The weekend’s end.

Good morning everyone and happy Sunday,  I hope you all have had a safe and enjoyable weekend. The weather here in the city is absolutely amazing, still a little warm but no where near where it normally is. I can’t wait for cooler weather so I can get back into geocaching,  I have still yet to find my first one but it is so fun I can’t wait to get back into it.

yesterday I let Caden (my son) go out and play in the sprinklers and we found a katydid that was hurt so I picked it up and put it on our patio fence, later in the day I looked out my patio door and it was on the arm of my chair out on my patio. I then wake up this morning thinking “oh it will probably be gone by this morning.” When my son comes to me and goes “mama look!” And points to my aloe plant and sure enough that little katydid is still there.

The powers and miracles of nature.

Well I hope you all have and amazing, safe, and special Sunday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Well I hope you all have an amazing weekend and a happy, fun Saturday.

What a busy day!

Happy Tuesday everyone, I have been so busy today, I swear it feels like I never stopped moving until just now and I even made my step goal for today.

image

Yay!!!! I also got an infuser bottle but just ordered a better one that I fell in love with, but here’s the one I bought for the time being.

image

My infusion is lemon, orange, mint, and strawberry. I can not wait to try it after it chills. Also had to figure out a way to dry my mint since I don’t have an herb drying rack.

image

So I had to get creative and use my cupboard to drip dry my yummy smelling mint.

I hope you all had a wonderful and amazing Tuesday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.
