It's Time...

I’ve decided to close down this blog.

My life is going in a different direction right now and feel as though my interests tugging me in a different direction. I’m finding it hard to write here, especially on a consistently heartfelt way.
I started out just wanting a place for my thoughts and instead found a place full of extraordinary people.

I wish you all well. You have been an amazing part of my life.

Be brave, be well and be happy.

The Lesson So Far

Thanks all for your good thoughts and prayers.

Dad’s life if a series of doctors appointments, test, results and trying to figure out the next step.

The lesson so far is love, with all your might, the people you care about and let them know.

Think Good Thoughts

I just got off the phone with my father... he's been diagnosed with colon cancer.

My dad, cancer. Augh. I know there's lots of success stories and I'm writing his now.

I love you Dad.

The Bounty

Thursday’s are the day I go pick up my produce box from the local organic farmer. I’ve been doing this program since August and I split the goodies with a friend of mine. We paid $1000 ($500 each) up front for the year, which I know sounds like a butt load of cash-o-la, but if you break it down, it comes out to be less than $10/each a week, $9.62 to be exact.

Here’s the haul we got to split this week.

2 bags of salad mix
2 bags of spinach
1 bag of arugula
6 eggs
2 bunches of carrots
1 bunch of kale
3 onions
1 bag of snow peas
1 bag of snap peas
2 peppers
1 bunch of leafy greens I had never seen before

It’s all super delicious, super fresh and how spoiled am I that in the middle of winter I can be so blessed to have such a bounty.

All of Me

This post should come with some warnings of some pretty graphic pictures. If you have a weak disposition, you should go ahead and go else where.

As I was reading through some blogs the other day, this post really inspired me. I thought it was so brave of Tina to post pictures and that post for some reason really stuck with me the past few days.
I've always wanted to have some "before" pictures and I'm at a point right now where I'm not comfortable with how I feel or look so I'm using these as my "before" pictures. These pictures feel like something concrete, something that will keep me more in check and something that will help be a motivation. My hope is that these pictures will be a reminder of my where I want to go and things I want to accomplish.

It's hard for me to look at these pictures, but it's me and it's the truth. It's my reality and it's something that I can change.
