A perfect hygge Sunday morning


It’s the little things….

A perfect cup of coffee

Your favorite candle burning

The smell of bacon cooking

Rain hitting the windows

And your kids sleeping safe in their beds….

Out of the Blue


I haven’t posted in ions. My life has taken a different path once again. A good positive path.

I went in halves on a house with my ex-husband. The house is for my boys and I. I guess I can say it is definitely my dream home with a lot of work ahead of me but so worth it.

From time to time I am going post before and after pics of the reno.

 

The picture with the fake red brick was the kitchen before it was totally gutted. The cabinet doors are what my son and I stained to a darker color. No more drop ceiling yay! All these are basically of the kitchen. More to come!

Stop fearing and live your life


If you want to eliminate fear out of your life, the simplest way to do so is talk to a kid.  Kids have no fear to a degree and I guess that’s what gets them in trouble at times. But think of this, what do you have the greatest memories from and you more intense moments? Your childhood right? Think of all the careless, carefree things you did without hesitation when you were young? What kind of feelings did it give you then and what feeling does it give you now just thinking about it?

My kids do just that for me.  Not only do they bring me back in time, but they say to me, mom stop worrying just do it. So little by little I am.  Yesterday though I missed an opportunity of a life time.  I had the chance to go with both my sons(13 and 14) on a flight lesson over Piseco Lake in NY. Why? Because I was afraid.  That fear slighted me of something so amazing. How stupid can I be??? 

I guess I can’t beat myself up too much. Baby steps right? I fly high on the swings with them, I race on bicycles with them, we play manhunt at night, and we tell spooky stories by the fire.  I’m getting those feelings back and I feel like I’m starting life all over again. What a feeling!!!

Swing high on that swing my friends. Go for that rush you once had when you were younger.  You never know if you’ll get that opportunity again.  

New York Blueberry Picking Season


It’s official, our second time blueberry picking and oh how we love it. It’s amazing that you can find the easiest and cheapest things to do with your kids that bring you closer(if that’s at all possible with my kids because we are pretty damn close).

We wait for the “Open Season” sign to be posted and off we go.

I’m partial to our local farm right down the road. I always say you can’t find a better blue berry farm anywhere!

These are pics from our first visit this year and we will be going again by the time it’s over.

Thank you Anndel Farms!
