I am thankful for…..

My me time. I am LOVING finding myself. I am finally content with where I am in my life.

Here are some things you SHOULD be doing if you are in a relationship (I love reading these to prep myself for when I am finally ready)

I am thankful for…..


Yum. I love it. Swiss. Feta. Cottage. Parmesean…..I love them all! I think it just adds so much to so many things! Sandwiches, omelets, salads….

I am thankful for…..

My blog.

It is a place for me to vent, share my embarrassments and accomplishments, let people get to know “me”, support others, and an outlet.

I have become more honest with people and more importantly myself.

Today I am admitting to myself that I sometimes want a glass or wine, but hold back because I feel it is “unhealthy” calories.  I am still thinking restrictively.  That makes me sad and mad. I am admitting it out loud. I am aware and I will continue to work on it……..I hope my guilty feelings towards food, drinks and exercise change on their own….soon


I am thankful for…..


Family time.  Making time and spending time with the ones you love

my mother always instilling “Family eats together at the table” attitude for dinners at our house.

I love that I grew up in a house where my mom made DELICIOUS home cooked meals daily AND made sure we all sat and ate dinner together.  I think this is one the best things a family can do together ❤

I am thankful for…..

finally being at HOME this weekend 🙂
The past week has been crazy. I feel so displaced, anxious, etc. It is because I have NOT been home and not been able to organize and do the things I usually do to make me feel GOOD for the week ahead. I am really thankful that this weekend I have NO plans (and want to keep it that way!) and get get back into the swing of things….FINALLY!! 🙂
