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….

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.  

Never Feel Guilty(1 min read)


First and foremost, life is too short to not do the things you want to do in life. Even the simple things that make us happy shouldn’t be discounted like, resting, watching tv, writing, snuggling, listening to the rain, indulging in our favorite foods once in a while, taking a nap, letting the laundry go for a day or two, reading, and just thinking.

You’d be surprised how replenished you can feel just by doing those simple things that do not cost a cent.

Don’t feel guilty about living the life that you want and what makes you feel good. 13133103_10209372301970528_7273809905913075704_n

 

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.
