BDV: Savory Bliss


This past week has been a long one - lots of hours at work and a lot of trying to get caught up on sleep. I am looking forward to going to bed here in a few minutes.

Sometimes during the winter, my cabin fever comes on quite strong and I only want to get out the house to do something, even it it's just errands.  Last weekend, my roommate treated me to brunch at Georgia's Greek Deli and we had stopped for doughnuts at Frost while on our way to run some errands. These doughtnuts are so very delicious. They are slightly higher priced than that of a standard doughnut, but are made in various flavors to even having cupcakes!

And breakfast at Georgia's: Katarina's omelet with potatoes and pita, with a delicious side pancake.

And the delicious damage:


And this is a hot cocoa chocolate cake doughnut. How incredible does that sound? It was so very creamy and delicious without being too sweet or rich. 

Sundays are my relaxation days - usually - and I love to cuddle with Ernie-cat. Here, I caught him crossing his back legs and thought it to be the most adorable Ernie-antic in a while. 

At work, I got to enjoy some amazing views of a foggy wonderland all around us.

 And how to fix your bronzer when it breaks. I had washed all my brushes and cleaned up my desk, finding my bronzer busted up. Thank goodness for easy fixes though!


And on Hulu+, the beautiful reincarnated Sailor Moon Crystal series brings me right back to childhood. This reboot is based on the manga and not the original anime, which is a nice change-up.

And, basically, that was my week. Nothing too crazy, but enough to appreciate. Hopefully you all had a great week! Was it inspiring at all? Please let me know in the comments.

Now off to bed! zzz,

Em

Sacred Storytelling

Over the past year, I've begun to uncover my purpose in this life - what am I here for and how do I find fulfillment in that purpose? Is it ongoing or is it a one-time goal that I will eventually achieve? What then if that is the case?
There are so many questions to ponder and endless thoughts about the what-ifs and hypothetical future I could potentially have, based on the notion that I knew exactly what my purpose was, that is.
I've known that I'm meant to be a storyteller - that I am a writer and creator, but that alone didn't resonate with me or drive me to work towards any one goal of actually being those things. I already was those things, but there wasn't a sense of fulfillment from bestowing upon myself these titles. Works have been created, but to no real purpose or reason. The question is how to make this state of being something more tangible...more real.
It wasn't until a couple of weeks ago when I read an article about Reese Witherspoon who spok…

I Didn't Know What to Say

This world is full of both wonderful and heartbreaking circumstances that wear us down daily. As a nation, we are mourning another tragedy where violence has torn apart communities and families - and for what purpose? We just don't know.
I didn't write on this yesterday because I didn't know what to say. I've read that it's the deadliest mass shooting in American history. I don't know what's more sad to me: that this deplorable act is something that I feel numb towards given the increasing numbers of shootings and tragedies we are seeing nationally, or the act itself: where some random person unbeknownst to even his own family made a decision that forever altered the lives of millions of people. 
The biggest encouragement and consolation I can try to provide is to continue to shine the light into the darkest corners of the world. Whether you emit joy and love, peace or kindness, these are a few ways to impact the world in a positive way that anybody can gi…

Off to the Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch

Two years ago, my sister and I ventured up to Snohomish County to go to our first corn maze. On this past Sunday, we repeated the experience, this time, with her boyfriend in our company, taking lead as map guide. 
In our first year, we had forgone the use of the map and decided to venture through completely
on our own. We made it! It took us nearly two hours to complete the massive maze, but all the same, had a a lot of fun - so much so that when she announced that she was moving back to Washington State from Arizona, we both decided (early in the summer, mind you) that we would be returning to Bob's Corn Maze.

As our tummies were grumbling with hunger upon our arrival, we started our visit by standing in the understandably long line for three scrumptious golden ears of roasted corn, dipped into melted salty butter, using a napkin and the blackened husks to anchor the ears to our
hands. Juicy bites of corn melted in our mouths with one delicious bite after another. This year,…
