Body Beautiful

We arrived in Cabo Thursday afternoon. We are very fortunate to be staying in an amazing resort called Montage. Our room has gorgeous views of the ocean. We have had incredible food and have been able to relax by the pool. Confession – I spent way too many years hating my body. It really is …

The Bird in the Storm

Art I’m in a rut, artistically speaking, right now. I’ve signed up for quite a few things this year and nothing is speaking to me. Yesterday, I continued working on a piece that I started this week-end and I’m very “meh” about it right now. I try to be gentle with myself as a newbie …

Just a quickie

Today we are taking my husband’s granddaughter out for a day trip to see one of his rentals, then to visit my parents for a bit. I’ll write more tomorrow with hopefully some pictures. Have a great day everyone and happy Saturday.

Playing in dirt and the joy of canning

Last year, about a month or so into the pandemic, we decided to take up gardening. I purchased a raised garden bed, we purchased bags of dirt and chicken poop, and a variety of starter plants, like zucchini, tomatoes, cantaloupe, bell peppers, and strawberries. Everything grew well enough to give me the idea that maybe …

Nature is a curative

Some days this pandemic makes me cranky. I’m in a new marriage. I moved in with my new husband in November 2019. The pandemic hit in the early part of 2020 and we were in lockdown by March 2020. So we have been with each other 24/7 pretty much since then. It’s a test to …

Getting back to normal

Yesterday in a word felt normal. I went out into the world by myself to do shopping for Easter and for my boys who have birthdays about a week apart. I went into Ulta to buy some of my favorite products and spent more than I was planning because it felt so indulgent. Tomorrow morning …

Effy's Blog Challenge

Moving on

I don’t think that anyone with true, deep feelings for someone else, ever stops loving them. I know that for some getting to a place where you stop caring for the person who betrayed you is the end goal and I’m here to tell you that it’s okay if you never stop caring. I think …

A little bit about dating

In the summer of 2019, I was dating and talking to a few men. I actually started dating soon after I asked my ex-husband to leave our home. While dating soon after the end of a long-term marriage/relationship may not be the recommended thing to do, it is what I felt I needed to do …

Change

Sometimes change happens, even if you don’t want it. If you have been reading my blog for any length of time, you know that I was thrust into a change that I never anticipated, nor wanted. And I’m still working on what the change means for me and for what kind of life I want …
