Undeserving Love

Sometimes the emotions inside just need to come out. Sometimes writing is the only way to make peace of the things we feel but don’t understand. Sometimes pulling the chaos out of our head is the only way to give it some order and meaning.

Have a read and be sure to show your love. Enjoy! 🌷

I speak with a calm I do not feel. Trying to rationalize With you who doesn’t Want me there. Knocking down falsehoods Takes truth Bravery Humility Strength Gentleness In abundance Love.

New Beginnings

Sometimes I set the bar too high,  I’m a firstborn overachiever,  it’s what we do!

I often don’t realize how detrimental my ridiculous standards for myself are until my body relents because it just can’t keep up with the outrageous demands I’ve placed on it. So, little by little I’m learning to find balance. Time for God, time for myself, time for my family, work, chores, blogging etc. Balance is key!

My fur-ever friend

The fury members of our family come to us in various ways. Some we purchase,  some we aquire as gifts from friends, some we inherit from breakups,  some we valiantly rescue from awful situations. However your fury pal came into your life,  I’m sure your story will live in your heart forever. My Dog was a rescue which I then inherited after a breakup.

Beat the Heat: Ice Cream Edition – Part I

Here, in NYC, we had a few days of cool temperature towards the end of August. I was fearful, like many others were, that we had to brace ourselves for another early winter. Lo and behold, it was hot and humid this week, so I guess summer isn’t quite done with us yet.

The following post by Wendy, one of our Food Quiz winners, gives us many refreshing ways to help cool us down. So, here’s to the tail end of hot weather here in NYC!!! 🍻
Check out her work and show some love. Enjoy! 🌷

There is no better or cooler way to beat the heat than with ice cream. It’s a classic treat that brings relief and sweetness to a hot, sweltering day.

I would say texture is the number 1  thing I look for in ice cream. I love a good soft serve and a creamy ice cream is a dreamy ice cream ;). But I love to find bits and pieces of textural contrast that just provides your mouth with a nice surprise.

Some of my favorite ice cream spots to enjoy in NYC include Big Gay Ice Cream, Ample Hills Creamery, Brooklyn Farmacy, Minus Celsius Ice Cream, I-CE NY Ice Cream, and Chinatown Ice Cream Factory.
