Awareness VS. Understanding

Well hot dang! I was so delighted this morning when I woke up to find that aΒ bunch of you ordered aΒ FabFitFun box! I mentioned in last night’s recipe post that my sister-in-law and I were customizing my box, and I was getting so stinkin’ excited. It’s a quarterly box of over $250 worth of beautyContinue reading Awareness VS. Understanding

My Unseen Recovery

First of all: to the person who usedΒ my Amazon linkΒ to order a pair of pizza socks that literally comes in their own miniature cardboard pizza box….a) Can we be friends? b) You’re winning at life. And C) Thank you for using my link! πŸ™‚ OK, so real talk: this was a tough weekend for America.Continue reading My Unseen Recovery

The Go-Between’ers

I felt a devastating familiarity, hearing about the shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida yesterday. These tragedies have become all too common in our current world.

It feels like literally two days ago that we were ringing in 2018. But yep – Ash Wednesday is here. And I’m personallyContinue reading An Ashy Valentine’s Day

Tied Up with String

🎡🎡🎡…These are a few of my favorite things. 🎡🎡🎡 So this is now the sixth attempt at a post. My writer’s block is in full swing – perhaps because my creative mind is across the world in India, dancing in a hot pink sari with elephants at the wedding-of-the-century I’m supposed to be attending rightContinue reading Tied Up with String

Zesty Rainbow Ribbon Salad

Thanks, everyone, for your kind words about my would-have-been trip to India. Obviously, the food situation with my Ulcerative Colitis was one of the factors in my decision not to go. But just because I have to follow this therapeutic Specific Carb Diet doesn’t mean I don’t eat delicious food on the reg. Case inContinue reading Zesty Rainbow Ribbon Salad
