Let There Be Peace.

Onto our 3rd {Trite} Holiday Blessing… And it is rather fitting that I take this one on–as it happens to be the theme of my Christmas tree this year.  Current view:  Christmas tree aside, the word ‘PEACE’ brings so many things to mind.  Of course, my first instinct is to throw up the two-finger ‘deuces‘.… Continue reading Let There Be Peace.

All You Need Is Love

“All you need is love, Love…” (And a beach, and a chair, and a sunset. LOL…I kid, I kid. Well, sort of…) So Christmas happened. And in the midst of all the hustle, our mini-series of posts made some progress in our heads, but not much on paper (or screen). While Claire was experiencing the… Continue reading All You Need Is Love

I’m Beautiful, Dammit! 

“That’s it, baby, when you got it, flaunt it, flaunt it!”   Well, flaunting it is easier said than done, when you don’t think you got it in the first place.   Yes. Self-hatred, depression, anxiety, and compulsive behavior all go hand-in-hand with an eating disorder (see post Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice). And… Continue reading I’m Beautiful, Dammit!

Red Light…Green Light

Flashback to the childhood game–Wonder if kids play that anymore. 🤔 This morning it’s more like ‘Green Cup…Red Cup’ in the coffeeland of Starbucks (see recent mini-post Kelly Green for reference).  Just like that, the red cup has officially made its annual debut: Today, 11/10. As shown above, the ‘red cup’ isn’t plain like last… Continue reading Red Light…Green Light
