Never apologize for being sensitive or emotional. It’s a sign that you have a big heart and that you aren’t afraid to let others see it. Showing your emotions is a sign of strength.

When I think of the word Art, it brings up a few different pictures in my mind. The most obvious is that art is made by an Artist using mediums such as watercolor / oil paints, pastels or charcoal. But to me, this just seems a bit too confining and too narrow of a definition.
I’ve always seen these blog posts online about going minimalistic. For the longest time, I honestly thought I could never pull it off.
Now I realize that was my ‘shadow self’ talking. (It’s what I call the side of myself that I fight with daily to keep my depression at bay.)
So, this morning I decided to give it a shot…starting with my theme for this blog. I wanted a more slimmed down and minimal look. Plus I was able to pare down both my categories as well as my post tags that I use, so it’s a good start.
Let me know what you guys think?
Till the next time!!
Even though I can not cook worth a damn, I love food. If you ask me to choose a particular thing that I would love to learn to cook properly?
Chicken. More specifically BBQ’d, Italian, Mexican, Greek or even simply marinated with some lemon juice. So as I was looking through some yummy recipes for chicken, I came across this recipe for Grilled Greek Lemon Chicken. Interested? Follow the link to grab the recipe:
Happy Valentine’s Day Guys!
Not to sound like a downer, but with a husband that has spent most of his career in the Food and Beverage Sector, I haven’t really celebrated Valentine’s Day for a VERY long time. I still like the holiday though…more for the excuse to eat sweets then anything else.
I love to bake so when I was searching for recipes, the decision was whether or not to find a baking or a no bake recipe. This recipe made the decision for me.
Follow the link for a no bake yummy recipe aptly named “Cupid’s Cloud”:
I have never done one of these word inspiration posts, so hopefully this won’t be the last.
I’ve never kept it a secret that I had a difficult childhood and became estranged from my immediate family as I got older. Some of them were my choice, some were from outside influences when I was younger and didn’t know any better. But I am getting off topic.
What I have learned about the word ‘family’ is this: Family doesn’t always equate to blood. As I have gotten older, I have met people and the friendships that they have graced me with, grew into becoming as close as family.
Now not many people are in this category, but those that are, I have trusted them with the most important people in my life – my daughters.
As for my own family? I’ve been lucky to have an amazing relationship with my dad, and my younger sister has restarted contact with me and things are great on that front as well.
So if you think you don’t have anyone that you can consider family, then look no further then those people who would go that extra mile to make sure when they didn’t need to; those people that have seen you at your absolute worst and still come around to visit, those same people that simply just value you for being you…. now that’s my definition of FAMILY.
Ok, before anyone asks… this is SO not a political post!
I just needed a catchy title since it’s been a bit since I’ve posted last
Now that’s out of the way, I hope everyone has managed to get through that long month of January in one piece. For me, it’s was a bit of a tough one but since it was nothing like the misery that was last year at this time – I will call it a win.
Now we are into the lovely month of February. This month means Super Bowl 50, Grammy’s, Valentine’s Day, my amazing daughter’s birthday (which was yesterday…can’t believe she’s 6!) and the one day that still manages to make people nervous.
Groundhog Day…Which would be today.
Now for those who do not know what the myth behind today is about, here’s a refresher.
Every year on this date, groundhogs come out from winter hibernation and go outside. If they see their shadow, then it signifies six more weeks of winter. But if they don’t (and I really hope they don’t!!), then say hello to some early spring weather. Naturally, those who know me best know that I will always be rooting for that furry little guy (in my case, Shubenacadie Sam.) to not see his shadow. Some years he gets it right and some years he blows it completely. Here’s to hoping this year!
As for me, I’m off to plan for the month and get my kids ready for school. Have a great week guys!
Till the next time…
