so what's next for me?

Hey folks!  I seem to be at a crossroads...or a roundabout, if you will....

I don't know where I stand.  Which way is up?  Do I go?  Do I stay?  Do I venture away and into the unknown? 

Part of me feels as if I am spinning out of control...

{image via}

And the other part of me feels like I am stagnant.  Just sitting idle.  Waiting for something better to come along.

{image via}

I know better than to do that.  You have to be a go-getter if you want big things to happen, I know this. 

Honestly.  I just feel lost.  But, not in a sad, feel sorry for me, kind of way.  Kinda in this kind of way...

Not All Who Wander Are Lost

I feel like I am standing at the base of this tree and the branches are all the ways I could choose to go.

But, which one do I choose?  I am not sure. 

But, I do believe it is time for me to turn off this blog of mine.  And find me. 

Find my happiness.  Find my zest for life again.  (Other than my sweet Layla.)  Something that fulfills me, as a woman, completely. 

You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover is yourself.

~Alan Alda

So, as I choose my path....I will still be praying and thinking of you all.  My new blog friends, that I truly care about.  I don't think too many people will be let down by my hiatus.  But, know you are still in my thoughts.  And I in yours, I hope.

Wish me luck.  I think I need it.  Nope, I know I do!   

There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

Many blessings to you all....until we meet again.

watch me burn

You ever love somebody so much
You can barely breathe
When you're with them
You meet
And neither one of you
Even know what hit 'em


Got that warm fuzzy feeling
Yeah them chills
Used to get 'em
Now you're getting fucking sick
Of looking at 'em


You swore you've never hit 'em
Never do nothing to hurt 'em
Now you're in each other's face
Spewing venom

- Eminem featuring Rihanna, Love The Way You Lie


**These lyrics just speak to me.  I am NOT.  Repeat - I am NOT being abused.**

Happy Birthday Momma!!!

Today is my momma's birthday.  I wish I was in the financial position to give the most deserving, thoughtful, giving, lovable mom I know this....a paradise vacation....

...with gorgeous Bali ocean views...

...with siestas here...

...and lunch here...

...with beautiful, plush sleeping quarters...

...with a Five Star Meal fit for a Queen...

...where these would be waiting for us hourly...I mean, daily! ;-)

...and these would be a plenty...

Yes, I wish I could give this to my mom...

....a trip to replenish our souls and help us find our center...
{and pray we could ever look THAT good!}

Yes, one day momma, I hope I can truly send you here to relish in nature's beauty.  Oh, and in case you couldn't tell....I wanna go with! 


See those two chairs?  They are waiting on us.... 


So, I'll start saving my pennies now.  And maybe I can take you for your...85th birthday?!?! 

That's not too far away....ha!  Kidding.  I kid, people. 

And I love my momma!   Happy Birthday!!!

He sings to me, specifically.


Here we stand
Somewhere in between this moment and the end
Will we bend?
Or will we open up and take this whole thing in?



Everybody else is smiling and their smiles don’t fade
And you don’t even wonder why you just don’t think that way
Maybe you and me got lost somewhere, we can't move on we can't stay here
Well maybe we've just had enough, well maybe we ain’t meant for this love



You and me tried everything
But still that mocking bird wont sing
Well man this life seems hard enough
Well maybe we ain’t meant for this love



Take my hand
And I will lead you through the broken promise land
Yes I can, ah yes I can


I can be there when you need it, I'll give it all till you can't feel it anymore
I don't wanna love you now, if you'll just leave someday
I don't wanna turn around, if you'll just walk away



Maybe you and me got lost somewhere, we can't move on we can't stay here
Well maybe we've just had enough, well maybe we ain’t meant for this love


You and me tried everything
But still that mocking bird wont sing
Well man this life seems hard enough
Well maybe we ain’t meant for this love

National Vanilla Ice Cream Day

That's reason enough to celebrate for me!!!! 

Today, July 23rd, is National Vanilla Ice Cream Day, ya'll...

Without ice cream life and fame are meaningless.

This is how I like to enjoy my vanilla ice cream...


Chocolate dipped cone...from the one and only...


But, I am not completely picky.  I like it like this too...


And like this...


Even this...

And definitely like this...sharing is caring....


But, NEVER like this...boooo....I feel sad for someone.  Somewhere.


How do you prefer your vanilla?  Or do you prefer another flavor?  Please DO share!
