 Okay......enough of this WINTER!!!!!!


I feel like this >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Need to break free from this Winter Hibernation, I'm going crazy.



Time for this>>>>>>>>>>>>>





                                                    Who agrees?  

It's time to wake up in the morning and feeling the warm sun coming into the room. Being able to have the windows open and breathe in the fresh air.......

It's time to take the car to be washed and made shiny!
It's time to go the Farmers Market and walk around in the warmth of the day picking out fresh fruit and veggies!
It's time to go plant some beautiful flowers and feel the heat of the day trickle down your back!
It's time for refreshing icy drinks that make you say Ahhhhhhh!
It's time for the days to be long and sunny! Maybe some days of warm rain to add in once in awhile.
It's time to grill and sit on your patios in the evening!

It's time for the winter to go away and the Warmth of Spring to arrive!

Well, the last two months have been lot's of fun......visiting NYC, seeing friends and trying some tasty foods!
I will admit that I did do some indulging and had a few tasty treats along the way.
I even found some really cool little spots here in Columbus, thanks to a video shoot that I had the pleasure of working on as a make up artist, which is something I enjoy :) insert here > Coolworld Photography and Film and Design. :) <3

I'll start with this wonderfully light and subtly sweet fruit tart that I had from a Beautiful little place called Mozarts Cafe and Piano Bar http://mozartscafe.com/

 and this awesome little chocolate Mousse Petit Four.


There's also an Amazing coffee shop at The North Market in Columbus called, A Touch of Earth. They have really great coffee and some of their specials are unique in flavor as are the names they choose!

Next......Oh My! The Taco Truck Los Primos, located at 233 W 5th Avenue
Corner of 5th and Forsythe, Victorian Village. I tried the Ceviche and  let me tell you they are the real thing People! If you've lived in Cali or have been to Mexico, then you know! And, it finally convinced my guy that this is what Mexican food IS!!!!!! 


Now, for the NYC trip........

Veggie Burgers!!!!!! = Love 
And of course NY Pizza = Big Love for Paul, haha!

Don't forget a pastry and tea in Central Park = calm beautiful morning, before our day at the Museum of Natural History.  


 And, yes a nice little bar to pop into for some fish tacos and a fish sandwich for Paul. Oh, yeah and my margarita!


Lovely times <3






On to the next adventure in food and travel.......

Heading to NYC next week!!!!!!!!!

I can't wait to be in the city once again next week!
Paul and I are going there for business and pleasure.
I'm looking forward to some good foodie finds, and I've actually started researching some restaurants to try out. We'll be in Midtown for the visit, close to restaurant row.
Aside from eating, I want to check out The Museum of Natural History.
I'll be updating you on what yummy finds I come across!

Hi everyone!!!!!
Feeling great is what I want to achieve this year and really all the time :)
I've set out by starting to be more active and eating differently. One book that I recently statred reading is called " The Beauty Detox Solution" by Kimberly Snyder, CN. I'm amazed at the information I'm getting from this book, like how to pair the right foods together to get the best results for your body functions. It really is worth reading.

I have been doing the Couchto5K for four weeks now, and it gradually is helping me work my way up to jogging and running. I'm going to be doing some 5K run/walks this year. Overall, I'm feeling so much better and I don't have the pains in the morning that I used to get.


Veggies and stuff!!!!!!!!

I'm enjoying having tasty dishes with mostly veggies on my plate, and in between lot's of raw veggies. For snacks I like to have popcorn that I make on the stove top, I Do Not use a Microwave anymore. We don't even have one in our place.

Eating out at restaurants is not difficult, just pick the healthy stuff.





I hope you feel a little inspired by this post!
You can enjoy food and live a healthy lifestyle <3








Longevity........
