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.

Tootles!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Sunday funday!

Happy Sunday funday everyone, I hope you are all having a great weekend. I am using my weekend for writing, reading, reflecting, and relaxing. I also had plans to clean but am just not finding the energy to. For some reason even though I have been taking vitamin B-12 I still seem to have no energy. I think it could just be the heat but I just don’t know.

Well I hope you all have a peaceful,  restful, safe labor day weekend.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

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.

Monday! Monday!

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are all having an exceptionally exquisite Monday. Mine hasn’t been as well as I had hoped as I think I may have a pinched nerve in my back, but I do have to say as painful as it is I am powering through my long Monday tasks. How is that for positivity?

I am so happy to have found out that this weekend coming up will be a 5 day weekend for me and I am already planning what I am going to do. ( lots and lots of cleaning on that schedule for me.)

Well I hope you all are having a peaceful and safe Monday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Took a bit of a break.

Good morning everyone and happy Sunday. I am glad to say I am back I so needed a bit of a break to process all the craziness that has been going on, but I do want to update all of you I have been working on the children’s book I have been writing and it is coming along nicely I did take a break from writing for a little while but that only made what I wrote that much better.

The weather here has been amazing and beautiful the past 2 days I have been taking my little guy to the park and just being out in nature and watching him run and play has done wonders for my spirit.

We also woke up this morning to some very scary news that we had a magnitude 6.0 earthquake 48 miles from us in Napa and watching the news there is so much damage and so many injuries. I am sending my thoughts and prayers to all of those who were affected by this earthquake.

Well I hope you all are having an amazing, peaceful, and safe weekend.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Running late!!!!! 😨😨😨

Good morning everyone, and happy Monday. My morning has started out on the wrong foot already, not only am I exhausted from my upstairs neighbors keeping me up late but now I am running late. I am hoping that with my positivity I can turn today around.

Well I hope you all have an amazing, stress free, restful, and relaxed Monday.

It’s finally Saturday!

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are all having and amazing weekend so far. I made the much anticipated slow cooked BBQ pulled pork sandwiches, and oh my gosh it exceeded my expectations. I also took my son to the fire station up the street for their open house and that was a major success. I also did some painting today which is so relaxing I can’t paint to save my life but I love to just play around with different styles and colors.

Well I hope you all have an amazing, wonderful, and happy Saturday.

Love and hugs from my home to your’s.

Good morning everyone, and happy Wednesday.  I didn’t write yesterday as I was still not feeling too well from Monday, but I did make my own copycat recipe for panda express’s cream cheese Ragoons all for under $10 and they taste amazing. I will post pictures of them down below.

I know today is going to be a busy busy day.

Well I hope you all have an amazing, wonderful,  adventure full, and positive Wednesday.
