You may remember my little going off of Facebook thing? You know, where I sat down one day and spilled all of my secrets of social media addiction? Yeah that’s the one.
Well, a little update here? It has been wonderful times a million.
Because you see, there are lots of wonderful little things going on in my little world and the people who know are the people who care about me. And I celebrated a birthday in the most simple of ways. Because I’ve been sick some days and people around me loved me for real life. We’ve taken road trips, attended important things; even buried a cat. And I witnessed it all! (because usually I would have been too worried about my 600+ friends witnessing it all that I would have missed it by taking a picture to share or updating my status.) Side note: Oh man, i love status updates. It’s like news all wrapped up in a wonderful package. Oh, oh! and I miss you people so much! Send me a snail mail, email? I’ll reply, really I will.
I digress. Annnndddd, I’m lame. (…pssttt, it’s true though, go ahead and send that letter) ; )
Yup, it’s amazing. Soak.it.up.
Social Media is WONDERFUL.
But so are Oreos.
Too much of anything is just too much. And.I.had.to.put.the.cookie.down. as far as social media is concerned.
Shout out to Oreo fans everywhere committed to living a more simple life with a little less social media!
All my love,
Because it’s raining and you really do appreciate him a whole bunch.
Because, what if.
What if, out of allllll those trash cans– *YOU* are the only one who shows him love today.
It’s trash day somewhere. Love simple.
Because love never feels simple to the one receiving it.
Oh, and… quarters work best for rainy days :-)
When we stood in the check-out and you leaned over and said, “What? I can’t hear you?” I could read it right then in your eyes.
Right there by all the glossy magazines screaming at you like a pack of jockeying hawkers.
If you listen long enough to all the loud voices about who you should be, you grow deaf to the beauty of who you are…

THIS momma of four girls loved every.single.drop of this sweetness tonight.
Soak up the goodness this evening, momma.

I know it’s organic- but someone picked up that apple, smelled it, and then put it back. You know it’s true.
And I hope they didn’t wipe their bum-bum without washing their hands before they touched the fruit sitting on your counter. ;-)
Hey! This is reality here.
Just clean them. I know it’s a hassle, but it can be so simple.
* Cut a lemon
* Put it in the bag
* Place fruit in the bag and gently swish around
* Let it sit for just a bit
* Remove fruit
* Place the bag over a good ol’ fashioned mason jar to dry.
Repeat (with that same bag) next time.
Before you ask… No, you don’t taste the lemon :-) I even sometimes add vinegar. Both provide a bit of additional, natural disinfecting power.
Last but not least. Some books I’m loving over natural healing?
We’re talking everything from dry skin to PMS.
Man, nature is amazing. It’s like God knew what he was doing or something
