The time has arrived for me to say goodbye to this blog...and say hello to my new one. So, I hope this finds all my blogging friends well and KATIEJANEMOMENT is up and running with my new photography/merchandising adventures.
I am still working on my blog (sort of got pushed to the back burner recently) but my goal is to have it up and running by the end of the week. I have no pics to post yet but I will at least have my blog. xoxo I miss this blog time!
Well, sugar is still the devil, though I would say she is more my evil step mother (look at me giving sugar a female label), I do not like her or how she treats me, but she is still apart of my life in some way or another. I have really enjoyed my short stint of sugar-free living and I must say I do not crave sugar as I did at the beginning of my fast. However, I still love sweet little treasures every now and again. I think when you fast from something it helps you step back and realize how much you consumed/partook in it without event thinking. Fasting helps to clear the pallet so the re-entry of said fasted item is not such a hot commodity. So, sugar (processed and refined) I say to you, I love-hate you very much, and with that I will be the judge of how often you grace my presence.
*Try greek yogurt with fresh raspberries drizzled on top with a touch of honey for a delectable, sweet, late night snack! Yummy. Compliments of Lizzy Canales (and Ashby).
I had a moment today. My older sister Amy had the sweetest little baby named Audrey almost 2 months ago and she is such a doll. I cannot wait to meet her. I have another little niece on the way, Ashby noel and I am so excited to meet her too. I tear up a bit as I think about how much I love my nieces and how eager I am to spend time with them. I genuinely love them already and I know the minute that little squeaker decides she has had enough of mama's tummy I will be overjoyed to hold her and kiss her little nose. I love new life in the midst of lots of unknowns, an unstable economy, a horrific disaster in Haiti and the world in all different gloomy and hopeless situations. God gives us this beautiful little life, these pure eyes that gaze into yours, untouched by the ravaged world, their little hands grip to your fingers and something simply amazing happens to your heart. Unexplainable. I love you.
My friend Cassie reminded me the other day of how much I love porches with a view. I have always wanted to design my own house (dream house) and have my house be a place where friends and family gather. Well, here are my pre-requsites: tall ceilings, loft, wrap around porch with big cozy chairs, indoor and outdoor fireplaces and good lighting! I love the IDEA of waking up early, grabbing my favorite book and warmest blanket, crawling under the blanket on my porch, sipping my tea or hot chocolate more likely (because I am not a coffee drinker) and soaking up the morning lost in a book. Here is the problem, I am in no way, shape or form a morning person. Ask my sister, literally I say things I don't even remember in the name of getting 20 more minutes of sleep while I am dead asleep. But, I have a mother and sister who wake up at ass crack of the morning and have already solved world peace by 7am. So maybe there is hope for me, someday. So, in the meantime maybe I will have dreams of my morning porch dates with the sunrise. OH, and I might need to find a house with a porch first too. As for the sugar fast, had a cara cara orange for dessert tonight post run and it was delish.
