Slow Food Dinner Party — Margaritaville

Slow Food Dinner Party — Margaritaville

My second slow food dinner party is in the books and it’s quickly becoming my favorite way to spend an evening with friends.  I’m going to give you all of the instructions to host your own slow food dinner party. To recap, a Slow Food Dinner Party, is a dinner party where you invite your friends over to help make an elaborate meal.  I usually theme the meals and have enough recipes and food for all attending to help cook…

Year of the Woman

Year of the Woman

I’m constantly inspired and in awe of the women who stand up for themselves, for what’s right and for those that can’t stand up for themselves.  In the same respect, I’m also very disappointed in women when I hear them tear eachother down, judge harshly, and disrespect other women. I’ve noticed as I move along in life, the groups of people who are discriminated against the most, often perpetuate the plight they most want to overcome.  This, I’m sure is…

Purpose

Purpose

“Love what you do, and you’ll never work a day in your life.” I want to love what I do, I’ve been struggling lately on figuring out what my “purpose” in life is and how I need to get there.  I feel like I’ve been lazy recently and need to find a way to get back on track. Looking back on my intentions for 2017, I didn’t really do a good job of doing all of the things I wanted….

Out There

Out There

One of my goals for 2017 is to “put myself out there” more.  I have a tendency to hibernate and tend to socialize little.  I’ve been single for most of my life, I’ve had a few long-term relationships, but none of them were meant to be forever. My friends tell me all the time “You want to be single”, “You’re so happy single”, “You don’t need a boyfriend”.  In a sense, all of these statements are true. I would rather be…

Wasted

Wasted

I’ve had a lot of big changes happen the last five years, I’ve started a new job, left a job, sold a beloved house, moved in with a boyfriend, moved out of the boyfriend’s, moved twice more, bought a house, realized I was depressed and needed help, ex-boyfriend passed away and now shortly I’m about to start another new job. In the past few weeks I’ve had time to reflect on who I am, what I want to accomplish and who…

Striking Out

Striking Out

Sometimes you have to strike out a few times before you hit a home run even after several base hits (don’t worry, that’s all I’ve got for sports analogies).  For several years I’ve wanted to start my own marketing agency, but I’ve not had a situation where I could live with little or no income while I established myself and gained clients. I’m still not independently wealthy, but it might be time for me to strike it out on my own. I…

Intentional

Intentional

January brings out two types of people, those that see a new year as a chance to make changes or resolutions and those that don’t make resolutions but hope to make changes to their lives throughout the year. I’m a bit in both camps.  I love January as a way to say good-bye to all that’s recently happened and to open the door to new experiences and changes.  Usually I write down what things I want to accomplish, learn or experience…
