Up Next

To all those who are following this blog, I have an announcement..I am leaving for Jordan!  That being said, I decided it was only fitting to create a new beginning in the wake of a new journey.

You can visit me now at:  I will continue to post new and inspiring things as I encounter them, whether they are in Jordan, or otherwise!

Leave Everything

This collection of stories and pictures will be traveling to another destination very soon, as will I.   In the meantime, enjoy what is archived here, and look forward to a new start.

"Forks Over Knives"

This is important stuff.  Start watching.

Snack Break

I'm currently without the use of my nifty canon powershot, with its hi-def pictures and cheeky little zoom lens. I was really using my brain when I began packing for the big move to PA, and decided to pack everything as far in advance as possible, including all my books and electronic gadgets...and my camera battery charger.  It's now officially buried beneath an entire library of nursing textbooks.  Woops!  Being prepared is overrated.

Anywho, I have been reduced to using my cell phone camera.  I'm sure it's more advanced than I give it credit for, but I'm still pining for my automatic focus.

Snacks.  What else is there to say?  They get me through the day (and night).  Some people prefer a glass of wine or a cup of tea to calm themselves down or unwind.  I do it with food.  

My favorite pick-me-upper.  Vanilla yogurt.  Mixed berries (I buy the frozen ones from Trader Joe's).  Raw almonds. 

Alice Waters' Fennel Salad.  Easy, quick, refreshing, and simple to play around with if you're looking to be creative...

In the Meantime...

Sometimes, life can feel incredibly messy and frustrating for no good reason at all.  (Do you ever feel that way, or is it just me?)  While I get a grip and stop being such a grump, I thought I'd give you some visual stimulation (not THAT kind of visual stimulation...)

Happy Birthday, Lil' Sis.
