Submerging Thoughts

Sitting in the bathtub… water– perfect temperature… lavender soap– bubbly… warm cup of vanilla chamomile tea at my side and a great book in my hand, a little music playing in the background (the soft, deep-house/chill-wave that it so often is) when a certain song came on, one that I hadn’t heard before with just

Friday-night Q&A

A little Friday-night Q&A with some of the more-thought provoking questions I was asked, in which I encourage you, too, to take the time to ask yourself the same sort of questions from time to time… digging deeper into self. Who knows… you might just be surprised by what you discover when you peel back your

The Empowerment In Owning Your Sensuality

I’m a Lover of all humans, all races, all genders, all ages… I find myself falling in Love with the human race on a regular, daily basis, gushing in absolute joy over an adorable child laughing, unable to take my eyes off of their sweet and innocent, chubby faces as I play peek-a-boo and wave

Friday’s Food for Thought

Friday’s Food for Thought: If you look back in history, no great changes actually ever happened when people were calm… when people were content.

Spinach, Apple, Pear & Goat Cheese Salad

Meanwhile, today in the kitchen was a very delicious and healthy salad, also very Autumn-esque (of course), mixed with all kinds of good stuff: spinach, pears, apples, walnuts, goat cheese and pomegranate arils. 😉 And as if it couldn’t get any more Autumn around here, I ran into Teavana and picked up two bags of tea:

It’s amazing how you can spend nearly two years perfecting and curating a plan that works, only to find yourself fall right back into

Love & Other Ways of Dying

While most are probably watching the debate tonight, I found myself just not in the mood. Instead, I enjoyed a late-night snack of goat cheese drizzled with honey, topped with crushed walnuts with a side of multi-grain crackers and some tricolored grapes, as I gave myself time to unwind before bed, reading a few essays from Love

For The Love of Wine

Some people plan their wine around their meal… others plan their meal around their wine. I happen to be the latter of the two! 😉 It’s officially time to take my love of wine, cheese and food to the next level. I was so excited when my shipment of these books came in. I dove

sweet as apple pie

Well,  This is the part where I get to write a really deep and sentimental post, reflecting on this past year. Each year, I always catch myself in the same state of mind: in awe at how much life continues to change from year to year, but also… how some things continue to stay just

Italian Chicken and Veggie Skillet

So, it’s been a hectic week prepping for midterms, but one of my favorite ways to relax and unwind is over wine… and food, of course. 😉 This week, while taking a break from my studies, I made one of my favorite meals. It’s healthy and delicious, full of lots of vegetables and colors. I
