Week In Review: Baking Self Care And Sugary Treats

Goodmorning, I’ve had a really tough week. Just… ugh. I haven’t been very mentally stable. A lot of anxiety. A lot of guilt. Very ungrounded. Negative coping. Tough feelings. I wrote a post about it, actually – thinking it would be my Week In Review. But then I realized I missed my normal way of ending the week: by listing the little accomplishments that soothed my soul. So I’m back focusing on just…

Diary of a Lovely (Holi)Day at Home: What I Ate Wednesday

Dec. 27, 2016 I just had a really lovely day. …apart from the brief episode where I was full of very non-attractive road rage and anger – in part due to leaving my phone in a store and having to return to (thankfully) find it. #typicalme. That was a half hour I am not proud of.  But everything surrounding felt really special.  I woke up early, as usual, and spent time with my…

Week In Review: Christmas 2016

Hello all you beautiful Christmas faces, Meg’s Week In Review is obviously a little extra special this week as we fondly look back over the past few days we’ve spent with our loved ones, receiving and offering gifts, and just savoring those sentimental traditions that occur once a year.  I had a lovely few days with my family. We were cooped up safe and warm inside, surrounded by a sea of snow…

Remembering What is Important and a Merry Christmas Eve

Hello dear friends It is afternoon here on Christmas Eve Day. My house is filled with a beautiful silence. I know it won’t last much longer,  as I anticipate the arrival of my two brothers and their partners (and their dog). I’m sitting here by my window ledge looking out at the snow, drinking a mug of hot coffee and snacking on a collection of chocolate edibles. I just finished up a…

Home Is Where the Heart Is (and the food, tea and power outages)

Back home. It’s really interesting being here again after having lived here all summer. I moved home to work on my recovery. This was my home for four whole months. And yet it feels like it was a life time ago.  Its kind of a weird feeling. I do feel like I have a stronger connection and ownership of the place now – much more than I have in the past 10 years, since before last summer I…

Week In Review: The Mega ‘Last Week Before Home’ Edition

Writing this post had me reverting back to the one from almost precisely a year ago. It seems that last year, my week prior to going home for Christmas looked verrry similar to the one I just had. It’s almost creepy. But it makes sense. I always want to feel organized and cleaned out when I return from home, so I do a chunk of cleaning – that whole new year “fresh start…

Christmas 2015

Like so many years before, another Christmas has come and gone. Of course, the season of the holiday continues, but the glitz and glamour of the one special day is now past. It was a traditional Christmas at my home, as it always is. The Christmas Tree was decorated with our random assortment of ornaments, all bursting with childhood memories.  Too many gifts were placed beneath. My goal for homemade and simple giving was achieved and finished off…
