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,

Creating Pockets of Adventures

Blessed. This is the perfect word to describe my life. While not everything goes in the direction I hope, nor does it ever happen in the ways I plan, it's mine and I have joy. More often than not, I face obstacles and sometimes rather painful experiences that I find to be overwhelming at times. All the same, I conquer. I have faith in a few things: a higher power, that higher power within me, and in myself. Faith always carries me through and has brought me to where I am.
I think my life to be somewhat average in many ways. I am not poor, but I am not wealthy. I can usually obtain the things I want if I plan for them and budget in most instances. However, I wasn't always affluent enough to afford small luxuries, such as my beloved Starbucks habit or my car. These two things would have exceeded my budget by far if I were 23-years-old again.  
Though, one thing that I am wealthy with is ambition. I've always been wealthy with ambition. If I want something, I find a way to m…

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…

Compassion

Months ago, I filmed a video about compassion and empathy. When I downloaded it to my computer, I didn't have the time or the drive to edit and upload it... until today. I re-watched the full 11:37 video and realized that my message was very clear and that it applies just as much to today as it did when I originally filmed it in November. 
Compassion. It's something that many people lack - not on purpose, but out of convenience. Out of carelessness. Without a thought. People aren't bad because of it, rather unaware and lacking mindfulness of who is around them and how they may be feeling.
I wanted to share this video as a reminder for people to view other people as humans - as people just like themselves. To have empathy and compassion because you just do not know what another person is going through.


Lovingly yours,
Em
