My upcoming project!



 Hi Friends!

How are you all doing? Over here, we are doing pretty good. It's been a year of social distancing and living through a pandemic. 

When I was sick with Covid back in July 2020, I read a book by Jen Hatmaker called "7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess". This book changed my life. I enjoyed it so much I have reread it since then.

I was so happy to find out it was going to be updated and rereleased today, March 23, 2021. The book is now called "Simple and Free: 7 Experiments Against Excess". The idea of the social experiment is "to reduce seven areas of excess—food, clothes, spending, media, possessions, waste, and stress, and made seven simple choices to fight back against the modern-day diseases of greed, materialism, and overindulgence". 

Each month, I will be reducing one area of my life. It is an intentional fast. I plan on starting with food. In the first month, I will be eating only seven foods. Yes, only 7 foods the whole 30 days. This project will start on April 15, 2021. It will last 4 weeks long. I will give myself a week off and then start with the next month. This will give us time to purchase the book and make a plan for each month. 

Like Jen Hatmaker does in the book, I will be blogging in real time. You will hear the good, the bad and the ugly of how I feel. 

I am so excited to experience this. Friends, I would love for you to join me! This will be life-changing and fun.

Lots of love,

How did I get those eyelashes? You asked, I answered!

 So since I posted this picture yesterday on Facebook and Instagram, I received many questions about my lashes. They are called.... easbeauty 2020 Upgraded Magnetic Eyeliner and Eyelashes Kit, Magnetic Eyelashes with Eyeliner, False Lashes 5 Pairs with Tweezers, Easy to Wear  Today, they are a lightening deal on Amazon for $16.91! My lashes are basically non-existent. They are very, very blond and fine. All you do is apply the magnetic eyeliner close to your lashline, let it dry and then the lashes snap right on. Easy peasy! I first heard about these from the book club I am in, Jen Hatmaker Book Club. I have been as my son describes "Covid Mommy" since March 2020. Lately, I've needed something to just feel good. These lashes do it for me. Its a small thing that gives me happiness these days.  If you end up getting a pair, share of picture of yourself in these beauties!  Lots of love,  Jen

Another Trip Around the Sun

Hi friends,  Welcome to my blog! Yesterday,  I turned 41 years old. Like the rest of you, this past year has been one to remember. The Covid-19 Pandemic has changed how the world operates and how people interact with one another, but it's only a short time period over the course of our life.  I am thankful for my family and friends, my home, my pets, the sunshine, my health. Unfortunately, I had Covid-19 in July and am what are referred to as a "longhauler." This means I am not contagious, but the virus remains in my body attacking different body systems. The one body system the virus loves is my nervous system. It's challenging to stay positive when what is wrong is hard to diagnose and the medical community is trying to navigate something that is brand new. I have been lucky to have a great family doctor and a neurologist who I trust.  This past year being home with my family has been one of the biggest blessings of my life. Yes, I'm exhausted. Yes, it's A L

What are your goals for 2021?

Did you make any type of New Year's Resolutions? This is something we tend to do at the beginning of the new year. It always makes me think of that TV show, "The Middle." The middle child, Sue Sue Heck, always declares each year as something. She had "The Year of Sue."  This year instead of saying "I'm going to start working out 6 days a week", I'm making small goals. For example, I am doing a "40 day Sugar Fast" (Book Link) that starts on January 4, 2021. I did this last January and I really enjoyed it. Was it hard? Yes. Was it worth it? Yes. The 40 day Sugar Fast was created by Wendy Speake. She has an online community that encourages each other and helps support each other through the fast. The fast is about giving up sugar and feasting on God. Focus on HIM, not yourself. I spent my 40 days focused on praying for my niece, Luella, who was hospitalized and was in really bad shape. She was my focus. Praying for her gave me strength a
