Once again, I am floored by the support of the blogging community. I don’t know why I’m surprised again and again but yet I am. You are all amazing and I wish I could give each and every one of you a big hug 🙂 So I thank you for your wise words and encouragement, from the bottom of my heart. I’m going to be OK. All I know is, thank God for my family and friends and my faith. Surrounding yourself in hard times with people who make you happy and uplift you is the BEST thing you can do. I’ve been trying to stay busy with friends, both old and new, and trying new things. And while I know it’s not going to be easy, I know I can make it through and I’ll come out on the other side. And that goes for anyone else who is going through a hard time… know that you are not alone and tough times don’t last. There IS a light at the end of the tunnel. SO, in the meantime, I’m going to try to return some positivity and normalcy to the blog.


In the past few days, I’ve discovered some new (and old) obsessions! First up, Kashi Honey Sunshine.

Now, this is ONLY a smattering of what I’ve been eating the past couple of days. Overall, it’s been pretty healthy. Buuut I’ve had my junk food moments too. But you know, I think it’s deserved. And I’m not one of those people who get upset and CAN’T eat.. quite the opposite. But it’s ok.

And if I haven’t commented on your blog lately, I DO still love you, I promise 🙂 I will be better about keeping up with the blog reading.. I miss you all!

SO, what’s been going on with you lately? I feel so out of the loop!
