That Look

I recently asked my friends on Facebook to link some songs that made them want to dance and sing. I was looking for songs that make you move. Why? Because I love doing housework with my wireless headphones and loud music. I will turn every chore into a dance…not just sweeping and mopping. I gathered…

Morning Meditation

Last year when I was going through a particularly rough time, my friend Charlotte gave me a non religious meditation book. Those are surprisingly hard to find in my area. Anyway, its one of my favorite ways to start the day. Reading the daily meditation with a cup of coffee and…*hangs her head*…a cigarette. So,…

To AraCakes with Love

Shoot From the Hip

“Shoot from the hip,” is a phrase that’s been used in reference to me…well, pretty much my whole life, by my mother mostly, because I don’t seem to have much of a filter. Believe it or not, I really do have one. I leave much more unsaid than I actually blurt out, but even the…
