The other day someone wished me a Happy Valentine’s Day and it made think about how warped this manufactured holiday has become. I’m sure by now you’re seeing an increase in marketing efforts to sell red roses, chocolates, hearts, and other related red things to promote coupled love. Selling a fantasy that clogs up restaurants with over inflated prices and other retailers trying to cash in on the 14th of February.
I realize that blogging is on its way out, unfortunately (sad panda). I’ve taken to other platforms to continue this brand (Instagram mainly, SnapChat: JustTrimTheEnds, Facebook, and Twitter). However, I still find actual writing to be therapeutic and plan to maintain this blog too. It won’t be as often as I like due to life happenings and such BUT I will do my best to stay consistent. I do cherish your love and support as time has gone by. I’ve been running this blog for 7 years now and enjoy every moment of it.
If you use social media, follow along for more up-to-date posts and shenanigans that go on in my daily life! xo
Not only did he win so many states, he won the popular vote. I don’t believe that equates to most people being piles of dog do though. I think during the primaries the DNC should have taken the people seriously that as a country we are tired of the corruption in Washington. So tired that most of the country, and across party lines, we would have came together to support Bernie Sanders and moved America forward to a more real prosperity. This outcome is a lesson in when we let our pride propel us into situations that we are either not ready for or God (or whatever you believe in) has not blessed us or opened that door for us. Not only do we have to wait on his timing but trust his discipline through our failures. I’m a patriot and I love this country. It’s time for us as Americans to unite and work together for not only today, but for the future we are leaving for our children. We the people are what make this country great. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
Enjoy another excuse to eat chocolate in mass amounts! Tomorrow we get back to work, B*!%#.
It’s all too common these days for each of us to be so enwrapped in each others lives. We always know where most of our friends and family members are at any given moment thanks to the non-stop news feeds across all social media platforms. We know when our cousin arrived at the local coffee shop and which friend is going through their 5th breakup within a month. This behavior almost snuffs out the old thought of, “beware those who want to know your every move.” That used to be a clear sign that your partner – whether you just met or you have been together a few years was controlling and borderline abusive and it was time for you to cut them out of your lives. But what are some other signs that you are potentially in an abusive relationship and it is time to sever ties and move on?
No words over how gorgeous Ashley is! She deserves the cover (and then some)!
Let this be a lesson that anything you want in this world is possible with the right determination and hard work.
P.S. I really want that bikini. I can’t wait for summer. 😀
