Float adrift on memory bliss...

So it's Wednesday and between working for my new job, starting this show, planning some events, health issues, being a Mom and a million other things, I needed to de-stress. Big time. I also haven't had a chance yet to blog about floating which just so happens to be my new job so I killed two birds with one stone today and floated to relax and to blog about it too 

First of course please realize I do work at H2Om Float so I do have love for the place for that reason alone BUT this post isn't me as an employee. This post is me as a busy worker, entrepreneur and mama. Floating is simply LIFE.

I'd been thinking about it for days.. wanting to just get in a pod room, stick those ear buds in, shower off and crawl into the warm welcoming water for a complete hour of peace, quiet and pure bliss. I wanted an hour where my body didn't hurt, no one needed me for anything, the phone wasn't buzzing and my mind could just let go. 

Every day was filled with work, events, kids practices & games.. every day a new obstacle would prevent me from that hour of happiness. We are always on the go.
Today I said no more! Today was the day I was going to block off an hour for ME. An hour to allow myself, my mind and my body, to have a little time to unwind. After grabbing a couple of coffees at Dunkin Donuts, yes there's an addiction, and chatting with my coworker for a bit, I closed myself up in a room, stuck those ear buds in, showered off and slipped away...

Of course my brain kept yelling wait! The first 15 minutes of floating for me is usually filled with thoughts of EVERYTHING I need to do. I chastise myself and begin focusing on breathing... I feel like deep breathing allows me to change my mental direction. So after a little deep breathing I stretched my arms out, spreading my fingers and just stayed smiling. I felt good. I told myself an hour of floating was deserved. I told myself I needed this time, this energy, this healing for my mind and body.

The remainder of my float was mostly filled with creative thoughts, visualizing different colors and occasionally thinking of some business ideas. I believe it may be impossible for me to turn off the brain to business completely but this is definitely one of the best ways to just simply relax.
I left from my float feeling amazing. Spent some time with hubby on his lunch and I've been home since working on this blog.. just mellow and my body feels better than it has in days. I am grateful to have this now in my city. I am so excited to now be an advocate for the benefits of floating...

Take some time for you, grab a float in whatever city you are in. Your mind AND your body will thank you!

My Mother's Day Nightmare

May 13, 2018.. Mother's Day.

I worked an event.. I am always working.. helping coordinate a yearly brunch for my friend Chef X I was gone from about 8am until we got home about 6pm. I had been in communication with the two kids still at home throughout the day. They are 14 and 15.. generally mature and great at keeping in touch with me. Until 7pm that evening. Then 2 and a half hours went by where we had absolutely no idea where my daughter was. 14 years old and it was all silence. More than a few minutes is already scary, this was unlike ever before.

I am a mother to five, yes five, amazing kids. They are far from perfect, but I was far from a perfect parent, we managed. Being in the arts and entertainment industry there is sometimes a fine line between what is private and what I talk about. Most of the time though I know I am not alone. I know there are other moms, parents, loved ones who are experiencing some of the things I go through and talking about it helps. It helps me ge…

Turning 21, Disney and a Girls Trip We Won't Forget

I just got back from a five day vacation to Orlando... While there is so much about this trip we will keep to ourselves because it was all so special I did want to briefly talk about it as a whole.

About six months ago my best friend in Virginia hit me up. Her oldest daughter was turning 21 in July and she really wanted to do something special for her. My oldest had just turned 21, who also happens to be her Goddaughter, and our girls had known each other since birth as we were there for the birth of each other's firstborns. Her idea was to come down to Orlando, stay at a nice resort or hotel and have the four of us hang out a few days at the pool, maybe a bar or two and hit up an amusement park.

This sounded amazing and it was before the car accident my youngest was in, as well as a few other things to recently hit our family. When the accident happened she asked me if we should cancel. I asked her please not to, I knew by the time it came around I was really going to need a few …

Pika Tacos: 6 Steps to Dinner

I post some pics of these from time to time and almost always people ask me what the heck they are.. I have tweeted how to make them before but I thought why not make a blog and fill you guys in on all the yummy details. Since being diagnosed allergic to gluten in October 2017 I have found it VERY hard to eat. Yes just simply eat. Gluten is in EVERYTHING! So from time to time I'll share some fun recipes you can make from home that are super safe because I break out in hives with even the tiniest amount of cross-contamination and I want to help anyone out there struggling with the same!

This is called Pika Tacos because a friend of mine named Pika used to make something similar after making spaghetti. She'd make a HUGE pot of sauce and when all the noodles ran out she would make tacos with the leftover sauce. I have not found a safe spaghetti noodle I like yet and I love these so I just skip the whole making spaghetti part, my kids and hubby don't even mind, and go straight…
