My Thoughts on French Pedicures

My fiancé and I went on a delivery to NE for a delivery, recently. We got to book a hotel that had free coffee and all the accouterments a girl could ever want. I’m talking shaving cream to toothpaste. No, I know this may seem pretty basic for a hotel to some but I had never stayed some place this nice, so it was so neat for me!

So, friends, I have dived into the cool waters of buying a new wardrobe (it’s a mighty bit colder in Minnesota) and pedicuring. Definitely a new word I just came up with 😉

Speaking of new wardrobes!!! Mod Cloth is a new site (at least to me) that I’ve been looking for clothing on. Please check it out and use my code.

During, this trip I decided I needed some pampering. Not completely necessary but I thought ya know sometimes pedicures are just nice. I bet I could count on one hand the times I’ve had a pedicure. So, I was very excited after making the appointment.

Ooh my! And do my toesies like it!

Goodness gracious.

Literally, since my gait is kinda wonky and my left foot is well pretty frazzled. It was the most calming and wonderful thing. My feet always feel 100% better after I’ve had a pedicure. My toenails are so incredibly better too. I’ve had problems with thick toenails and damage from the trauma of my accident. Which surprisingly have been mitigated.

Now, I am able to walk barefoot unlike before.

It’s crazy.

So, I’m resolved once we move to be making pedicure appointments at least once a month.

Blessing #4: Cinnamon-Rolls-so-good-you’ll-lose-count

I sit looking out my window at the grey sky, misty-moisty hills covered in fog, and the bright, almost neon leaves outside. I’m so blessed to have this place. Wow, I’m in awe of being alone in PA as my first solo move.

Yesterday, the weather was much the same. I felt dreary like the whole state needed a little sunshine. So I found one of my favorite hobbies—baking!! I baked some INCREDIBLE INCREDIBLE cinnamon rolls. That coincidentally we had for our friend who came for brunch!

Cinnamon rolls so good you’ll lose count of how many you’ve had.


Travel #1: New- Orleans-travels

I gingerly sip the rest of my latte and peer out the window at the rolling hills flush with green. What a beautiful creation this world is, honestly who could think twice about not embracing such a beautiful planet and world. The world now is so confused and utterly turned on it’s head, right now, it seems.

Aside from that little bout of thought on today’s world life goes on. Some music to brighten your morning :).

Though truly if someone were to ask me every day is a miracle and quite an extra-ordinary experience. Each day presents a new way to give to others and to impact others in loving ways. Sometimes by just a simple gesture. That is what brings me joy.

I am reflecting this morning on the splendors and beauty I experienced recently on my fiance and I’s roadtrip to New Orleans. What an adventure!! And I got to meet my future in-laws and more of his family too. The second night we were there we went to a Jazz Bar to The Spotted Cat. The first I had ever been to. So Loud! So much Fun!!

Update #1 on Country Living

The winds are brisk today 43 degrees to be exact with a sharp wind that’s bound to make your nose cold and cheeks rosy.

Paradise apple tree

Today, on my walk I came across a currant tree and a Paradise apple tree.

It’s so peaceful outside not a sound.

There are a good deal of Robins and blue jays flying and flitting about outside. Despite the month being April it is still dastardly cold outside and sadly most of my flowers are down and out.

I truly am feeling the cold of PA.

I’ve been making coffee on a regular morning basis pretty much in the dark still. It was very misty moist-y wet this morning.

I just realized I have to watch Shawshank Redemption or Snowpiercer for an assignment due tonight.

So toodles friends! Have a lovely evening

Inspiration from Poppins: England

“Anything can happen if you let it.”

This somewhat comical and very inspirational song in Mary Poppins, my favorite Disney movie, though honestly, it’s a tossup with Beauty and the Beast. Mary Poppins is one of my favorite Disney heroines whose lyrics I try to live out. This song is so inspirational and urges you “to reach for the stars.” Everything about this song, I wish to emulate in my own life. “Life is out there so go and get it, grab it by the collar.”
