Giving Thanks {Food Version}

Finished Turkey

Thanksgiving has come and gone and what are we left with besides faint memories and leftovers? Giving thanks to me goes beyond just the wish and the mass text messaging  to your friends and families. Giving Thanks is an everyday lifestyle that consist of Thanking God for the very breath that He has so graciously just given us. So to make a BIG deal out of Thanksgiving is least for me. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the BIg getting together and cooking and spending time with family and friends, laughing it up and making new memories. Though I am in a new place, this year was no different than any other year. Though it was different people and a different place it was all the some love and laughs and heart felt moments, and OH I can't forget the mood swings of 7 women. I am proud to say that I cooked most of the food, which was totally fun and experimental. Below are the memories that Thanksgiving 2011 is all about:

and was OVER

The title really has nothing to do with the post, but more with how I have been feeling lately. But nonetheless, with the New Year less than 60 days away I have begun to purge a few things. Starting with pictures. Above are my pictures categorized in a series of events throughout my life. And Below is the shoe box that I stored them in. I threw out a lot of pictures from middle school, high school, some college and anything in between. Nowadays we all have digital camera's so it's either instant delete or upload to facebook. 

This is just the beginning of a long purge where some hard decisions will have to be taken, things given up, relationships shadowed and life seen as a new palate. One thing for sure is that it will not be easy to give up the things that were so dear to heart. But sometimes in life, the things that are so dear are those same things that are either not good for you or those things that just plainly hurt. And no one in life wants to continue to live hurt.....soooo  yea.

Love and Kisses,

Forever and a Day, a Week, & a Month.....

Yea, Yea, Yea ....I know it's been a loooooooooooonnngg time, but for good reason. I guess. Any who, so much has happened in the past couple of days, weeks, and months. I wish my thoughts were more cohesive and ordered, but in truth they are not. SO...since this IS MY blog, I'll just write. Maybe one day, I'll have some sort of structure.

- So I am no longer considering Law School, at least not for Fall 2012.
- I'm still with the Temp agency, which is fine, cause they find me assignments all the time.
- I still live in NY! #Survivor
- My brother is getting MARRIED (Another post entirely)
- I'm still single and Satisfied
- I've gotten clarity on a relationship

I'm sure there's more updates, of course because I am still breathing. But, somethings I would like to change is the consistency of posting blogs. It's like my mind is this BIG idea room and I'm trying to push them out so that they can become actions....still working on that of course. From now on, I hope to be able to post frequently, especially about things that are going on with me in every aspect of my life. I will not post every single detail, because I believe a person should still have a sense of secrecy that makes people want to discover more. I will however keep you updated on such things like the food I cook, my poetry, my crafts, and anything else I deem ME.

Until next time (hopefully sooner than later)

Kisses...Divine Beauty
