Wellness Update #22 + 31 Days of Photography + A Giveaway

This week has been relatively quiet for us. We've done some packing and playing, but mostly just hanging out together at home. I've once again gotten back into a bit of a groove in taking my vitamins and probiotics every day. This is especially good since I've been pretty inconsistent over the last couple of months. My water intake is better, too. I'm happy about that. I love water, but for whatever reason my intake has floundered from time to time in the last couple months, too. Nonetheless, these are both things I'm happy about....more

Gratitude Linkup - Week of 10/12/14 + 31 Days of Photography

One of the best ways to have perspective, for me, is to remember the things I'm grateful for. There have been times when I've gotten stuck in negativity that I've done a quick gratitude list (in my head or with another) and started on the path of releasing that negativity. Gratitude lists help me to remember what's beautiful and to remain present in my life.Each week, Laurel Regan's Gratitude linkup over at Alphabet Salad is a way for me to share a few of the things I'm grateful for with others....more

More Wellness in My Life #19

This week has been a good week for me. It's been relaxing and calm. I"ve been filled with quiet and overall peace. I meant to get some reading done this week, but I haven't yet gotten to that. I have spent a good bit of time crocheting, which I'm both happy and proud of. I hadn't previously done much of any crocheting in almost 2 years. I started to teach myself, with the use of some helpful websites and Youtube before we were pregnant with Baby Boy, but during pregnancy I developed carpal tunnel and it was too painful to crochet....more

Keeping Secrets

There's something I'd really like to share with all of you, but I just can't - not yet anyway. I think this secret I'm keeping is wearing on my ability to write. I'm almost consumed with holding it in and not saying anything, to anyone, anywhere.Sometimes it drives me a little crazy, holding it in like this, but I know one day I'll be able to share all. Once a few more things are in place I'll be so overjoyed to share this piece of information. Right now though, you'll have to wait in oblivious tension that there's a secret to be known....more

Honor - Book Review

I recently read Lyn Cote's newest book, Honor, finding it to be a quiet, easy, relaxing read. I easily read it in only a couple of days, since it was a quick, simple story, wraught with trials, devotion, love, and struggle....more
