I did it again...

Sorry guys.. I did it again. I wrote the last time back in May and have not wrote since then. Well I have started keeping a journal lately and have started new medication for my A.D.D. so goal is to be better at everything, including writing more often. Writing is an outlet for me and while I write facebook posts and tweets, it's not the same as writing a full blog entry, especially when I have a specific topic to discuss. Plus I want to get more interaction with my fans and this is a perfect place to do so!
To touch more on the A.D.D. medicine though...

I put up the following update on fb the other day- 

      I am an adult with A.D.D. Many people think they have it and often times when I mention it I get the same reaction- O I think I may have that too. Some may perhaps but those that don't have no idea whats it is really like. Some are understanding, some just laugh it off and most don't really understand it. Having A.D.D. can be a struggle. The mind is already a crazy place but when you are unable to properly maintain all the info swimming around up there it can be a little tricky just to get the normal day to day things done. Why am I posting this to fb? Well I want people out there struggling with it to know they aren't alone, I'd like to help change some of the stereotypical thoughts associated with it and after taking myself off meds for it about 7 years ago I just restarted medication so I am hoping to get a little bit of control of it myself. We all have issues in our lives, some admit them, some cannot but always remember no matter what you are struggling with you are never alone. Someone out there is struggling too. If you have an issue in your life don't shy away from it, let it make you an even better person!

I want to be an advocate for A.D.D. awareness. I want people to know they are not alone, it's rough at times but there are things out there you can do to help it! At the end of this blog I will post a link to a great website you can go to for information on both A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. and how to know if you or someone you know may have it and what resources are available to you. I'm also always here if you have any questions for me, just shoot me an email!

Gluten-Free on I-95

I love traveling.. road trips, flying and even by boat. I just love to go. I didn't travel a lot as a kid.. Until I was 10 the only states I'd been to were my home state of Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, West Virginia and Washington DC. By the time I'd graduated I had added North Carolina and Kentucky. I live in Florida now but my first time here was in 2002 and at 38 years of age I have only added South Carolina, Georgia, Texas, New York (airport only) and Connecticut to the list as well as The Bahamas (Freeport) and Cuba. I still have a million places I want to go.. Now though it's all a bit trickier because of my allergies.. I have been diagnosed as allergic to gluten, cats, pine trees and a few other things. I seem to have reactions to other things and need to be tested for more in addition to other health issues I have that food can complicate. This makes traveling HARD. I have to be careful at every place I go.. eating at events is completely out of the qu

Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Coverage #VoxBox

*This is a sponsored blog from Garnier Nutrisse and Influenster as I received this product to test for free So recently I was selected to receive a new #VoxBox from Influenster of a beautiful light brown (#630 Toffee Nut) hair dye from Garnier Nutrisse. I have used this brand a few times in the past so I really had no worries with trying out this new one. I set up my phone and did my first "unboxing" video which was kinda fun and something I think I may do more of. Inside were: After mixing them as instructed I kept the dye on for the recommended time of 30 minutes in going from a dark blonde color to this light brown. I must admit I was a little worried the color would properly cover my head as I was applying; the bottle felt so light but I ended up with just a little more than enough and I still applied that to be sure. My hair as you can see is just at my neck length so I imagine if it was longer than shoulder length you'd be better off grabbing two boxes

Baecation at Sunrise Painting

Have you ever heard a song and just saw a visual in your mind as you listened? During the COVID 19 Pandemic I have found myself painting even more. Having created my whole life I'd never painted actual paintings on canvas. My medium has primarily been wood and glass, learning as I go with no real teachings from anyone other than hours and hours of playing with my Gramma's paints or watching my Mom draw. When painting my first canvas piece of a sunrise last year I immediately knew I needed to paint more on canvas. I grew up at a time where music videos were EVERYTHING. The effects, guest appearances and story lines mattered. When most songs from my teen years start playing I immediately see the video in my head and think back to what was happening in my life at that time and the impacts the music and more made on me. That's what art does. It comes in so many forms but it is always a part of the times. After painting that first canvas I was riding in the car one day and th
