“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.” -Dr. Seuss




Here’s something I haven’t shared with most of you yet: I love to bake! Cookies, cheesecake, cupcakes, brownies, fudge, cake, I’m even getting into pies. I won’t lie, I’m not perfect when it comes to baking. I’ve thrown entire batches of cookies away, I’ve It’s hard to make time to just have fun when you’re busy working and traveling all the time. But I try to do something I love, something that’s easy for me when I get a break from everything else. It helps clear my head, and I always love giving away my baked goods to family, friends, coworkers, even homeless shelters. So if you’re looking for a passion, give baking a try! 


I’ve been feeling just a bit too out of control lately. A bit too hurt, too sad, too upset to continue trying to fake a smile. I’ll still be posting, but I just need some time to myself. I need to regroup, figure out why my heart has been hurting so much lately, and then try to piece myself back together. I’ll be going dark for a little while. 


IMG_1505.JPGI’m finally learning that I cannot control everything around me. I’ve let life knock me down too many times but I’ve realized that I’ve been going against the current. When times get tough, you need to step back and look at the bigger picture. Today, my picture is waves. Life comes in waves. Soft and gentle one moment, hard and rough the next. It’s up to you to either let life wash you away or to go with the flow. So take a deep breath because you’ll never know where life’s going to take you.
