Mondaze 

Mondays are hard no matter how you slice it.  Whether your in your 20s coming off a fun carefree weekend or in your 30s and are tending to newborns and toddlers or maybe you are in your 40s and it’s just that much harder to get up to deal with your 9,000 responsibilities, Monday suck.   I like to keep my outfits simple and my brain as clear as possible.  I’ve found that mediation can be incredibly beneficial, that is if I have the time to use it.  I started using www.headspace.com about a month ago, they offer a free 10 day trial, there is no question that when I start my day / week with meditation things seem a little clearer, lighter, less dazed…

Saint Valentin

snow heart

For the last couple of years inclement weather has pummeled the northeast in the month of February.  This is when north easterners find themselves wondering what they are doing living in a place where the temps reach such awful lows and it is often hard to leave their homes.   And then, we have Valentine’s Day, the day we can all forget about the nasty weather and celebrate love and romance…enter screeching record.  As I recall, in my twenties, there was a fine line between loving February 14th and completely loathing the date along with the rest of February, it all depended on whether you were actually “in love”.  Even if you were “lucky” enough to have a valentine, does he ever really get it right?!?   I’ll leave that question up for pondering.  I’ve learned to love Valentine’s Day for the onslaught of pink, girly gifts and for the idea that we should celebrate love whether it is shared with a significant other, a friend or family.

For fun here are a few things I’m inspired by this Valentine’s Day!

For the love of pink

I would love for Mr. A to bring these home on Valentines Day
