Starting from scratch

My life at this point in time is all about living it in the simplest form and progression on what has been happening in my life so far.  Over the past year we have lost a lot. We lost my mom last August, our house to a fire on Christmas Eve this past December, and our dog Maddy this past March to cancer. Even though I have pain on the inside from time to time, I don’t dwell on the inevitable. You have to move on in spite of life’s misfortunes. We are making changes for the better and healing ourselves in the process. When things like that happen you can’t allow yourself to do anything besides move on. This is about us moving on and sharing our trials and tribulations of buying and remodeling our new home, as well as healing. Hopefully you will find something on here that you can relate to and interesting, and maybe even spiritual! I love sharing my thoughts for the day, my recipes, as well as tips and ideas I learned from other bloggers and pinners. Oh how I love Pinterest! I hope you enjoy reading my posts and if you have any ideas or comments you’d like to share with me, please feel free! Thanks for reading!

This is me. I'm a mom, a sister, a daughter, and friend. At times and MOST of the time I live an ordinary life. I love my family and I'm trying to learn how to love myself. It's taking 46 years but I'm getting there lol. I'm still learning how to blog and figure out what kind of audience I'm trying to appeal to but I find myself randomly posting about anything and everything, which is okay I guess. I love being a homebody. I swear there's no greater peace then enjoying your home and its surroundings which is why blogging is ideal for someone like me because it makes me realize there is a whole big world out there to explore. The best part of that is I can do it right from the comforts of my home! I hope you enjoy my site and if there's anything you'd like to comment on, feel free to hit me up.

  1. I’m sorry everything you’ve lost. Sometimes life has a funny way of showing you that when you think you’re strong enough, you can be even stronger!
    I am the kind of person to go to bed at night and tell myself “I’ll just go on pinterest for 5 minutes” and two hours later I finally put the phone down! Lol, all the amazing recipes and DIY ideas! 🙂


    1. Lol I am the same way with pinterest omg it is so addicting!! I know I get so many great decorating and cooking ideas from it. Thank you so much for your reply and kind words. Maybe you can follow me on there but I’m not sure how to look me up maybe from my email.


  2. Jeana, I’m sorry for all that you have lost. I’ve come across many people that constantly ask “why did this happen to me?”, and many others say “I don’t know what I’m supposed to do, I wish there was a ‘Life Manual’ with instructions”. I say there is, but it is written in code, and there are signs everywhere, we just have to learn to read the code. Hope you continue to heal.
    If you have time, do this little exercise, and if you feel like it, share your score:
    All the best.


    1. Thank you equisway. I didn’t see your comment until today. Thank you for your comment. That’s a great way to put it re: “Life Manual” with instructions. Oh how I wish there were also. I will definitely do that exercise! Thank you.
