My favorite quote (or reminder as I like to think of them)...

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.” (Marianne Williamson - A Return to Love)

I'm Back On...

I'm back on coffee.

My brother in law, who makes me stinkin' laugh all the darn time, kept telling us that he was "off of sugar" all during our family Christmas party last weekend. I giggled every time he said it and he was dead serious when saying it. First of all, do you think he knows that his Sister in Law opened a bakery and brought three decadent desserts for our Christmas? Apparently that didn't matter cuz he was off of them/sugar. Well, you gotta give him an A for his convictions any ol' way.

So to steal his quote, I decided that the thing I am going to bring back for 2011 (I always "bring something back" and "ban" something each year) is...COFFEE!! Rich, Dark, Bold, Decadent COFFEE. I am SO back on coffee. I'm back I tell you.

I went cold turkey about 3 or 4 years ago and switched to tea with only the occasional cup of Jo here and there. But no more I say! I want it back in all of it's glorious, mug huggin', sensuous divinity. Now, I'm not banning the tea, I'm just back on coffee -- and I see lots of it in my future! Bring it! Iced, Hot, Coconut Creamer, Peppermint Creamer, Cinnamon Caramel creamer, black, latte style, ALL OF IT! I'm back on coffee people!

You heard me Jamez, I'm back on coffee! Not sure what I'm gonna ban yet for the year, but I AM gonna make a mug of delicious black gold right now! I thought I should bring it back a little early!

  1. I;m laughing now just thinking of all the decadent treats you're going to turn out while under the influence of caffeine!

    i stopped smoking a kazillion years ago. So long that I never even think of a good long, lung-choking drag anymore. The buzz words back then were, you're only a puff away from a pack a day. Seems to me anyone who can stop something "cold turkey" would never want to go back on it. But since it seems like you are going to enjoy the rush, I hope that a your first cup leads to a pot of rich, aromatic brew.
