The Best Medicine

Hi Lovely!

Today started off a little.. well, rough. See, I woke up after having a weird dream and was completely low. I had a dream that I was on vacation with my parents. A vacation with both of my parents. My Mom was there, frail and delicate, like the last time I saw her. We were going to dinner and she had entered the restaurant a few minutes before me. When I walked in she was laying on the floor. She must have slipped or something. I screamed for help as I ran to her. I cradled her in my arms then woke up. I was completely shaken and couldn’t fall back to sleep. In February of 2016 my Mother passed away and it has been a struggle. Holidays are really difficult. Maybe that’s why I had this dream. So, as you can imagine, Sunday started off on the wrong foot. I was in a grumpy mood and, honestly, wasn’t sure how to get myself out of it.

My New Kawaii Shirts from UmamiBrain!

UmamiBrain sent me the shirts included in this outfit post but all opinions are my own.

Hi Lovely,

I’m so excited to share two cute new shirts I recently received. As you know, I love cute characters (I mean, anything cute but especially cute characters), so when the owner of UmamiBrain reached out to me I was really excited! UmamiBrain is a website that features several super-cute, all original characters. My personal favorites are Cuedama and Tammy Tamago. Besides having fun bios for each character they also have adorable shirts! They had me pick out a shirt to try out and share with you. Trust me, this was a difficult decision. I settled on the Cuedama Japanese T-Shirt because I loved the art. The little hedgehog is just too cute to pass up. They also sent me the Kaishacoon “Cupcakes” T-Shirt because it’s one of their newer designs and wanted to see what I thought. Isn’t that nice? Alright let’s move on to the styling of the shirts!

It’s not selfish to make yourself a priority

Hi Lovely!

This past weekend was one of rest and relaxation. It was wonderful! I very rarely have weekends where I don’t have plans so this was a welcomed change. Fletch and I slept in on Saturday, ran a few errands, and I got caught up on Riverdale. Sunday was a bit more productive. We went out for breakfast then worked a while from home. I cleaned up my office and worked on some blog stuff (as you can see here). It was nice!!

Make the most of the moment you’re in

Hi Lovely!

I hope you’re having a wonderful day! I spent my day with a few amazing friends at the Tacoma comic show, Jet City Comic Show. I had a blast walking around the exhibit hall and looking at all of the booths. It was a wonderful way to spend my time.

After the fun day I got home and, like most days, reflected. I thought about what makes an activity or moment fun or enjoyable.
