My front porch


This is minimalism at its best. All this took took was a fresh coat of paint and a garage sale find for $80 bucks.

Sitting on a porch is the best therapy a person can get.

Life can be simple if you truly want it to be. Less is definitely more.

Be brave in everything you do

It only takes one step


It’s really simple. What holds us back from moving forward, taking that chance, or making a life change? Fear right?

Fear holds us back from more than we realize. For some of us fear can play a part in the simplest tasks. For starters, putting our two feet on the floor when we wake up in the morning. There is always something out there we dread that has to be dealt with in our day right?

Try this(myself included), start off with just today by saying no or not doing something with you are uncomfortable with, without feeling bad or guilty.

Little steps are a great way to get going on defeating what’s holding you back.

Consciously make an effort and take note on everything and every little feeling, like the pit in your stomach feeling, when you have to make a choice on what YOU want to do. Just say no. It’s really not that hard. Remember baby steps.

Good luck today.  I’d like to hear what you decided not to do today and how it felt to say no. Even if you say no to one thing, that is a great start.

Be brave and have a great day!

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!

Sunday drive in upstate NY


Yesterday was Easter and for the first time Mike and I decided to go out for dinner and just hang by ourselves. The boys were with their father on their way down to Florida. I’m so happy for them! First vacation he has ever taken them on. Anyway, I caught what Matt is just getting over. Feels like the flu or something viral as the doc called it. Horrible. So that just summed up my day but we made the most of it.

We laid low, ate dinner at Lanzi’s on the Lake. Sacandaga Lake to be exact. It was a relaxing time and great food.

I didn’t get any pics from the scenery or what we ate because I wasn’t feeling too hot but I did get some pics of the sunset that I was able to get on our drive home.

I hope you all had a great holiday in spite of all the craziness that is taking place in this world that we live in.

Keep it simple and it’ll stay real.
