Sometimes you have to let things go. But, sometimes you just have to stop, pause, and realize the good that came from the event.
When I originally sat down to do the outline of this post it was going to go in a much different direction. I was getting itchy for another road trip right after my birthday getaway and I couldn’t wait for the adventure that was waiting for me. I was going to go to a place I had never been before (Indiana) to hang out with a girl I had known for NINE years and had never been able to meet up with despite many honest attempts over the years.
But nothing, and I do mean nothing, went as planned. [Read More…]
This has been one crazy summer. Not only do I feel like it just flew right by me, I also feel it was probably one of my best summers in quite some time. I saw the light, did quite a bit of traveling, got out of my comfort zone and made a lot of new friends and reconnected with the old.
When I got the chance to visit Sea Life Michigan, I was super excited and knew I just had to take my boy bestie. Both of us have gone through so many changes this year so it’s nice when we can just hang out and have some smiles and laughs. [Read More…]
2016 has (so-far) been a total transformation for me. Although I am chipping away at things slowly but surly, these small steps have been monumental in my overall health and wellness. It has been THREE years since I have done a 5k. As those years passed me by, my mental and physical health plummeted deeper and deeper. I had wondered before my ex and I split if there was ever going to be a time where I would feel good again. Never during those years did I think my life would be going at the pace it is going now.

It’s no big secret that I love mushrooms; I practically put them in everything I eat. I love my mother’s full-fat cream cheese and cheddar cheese glory full of countless calories even more. But, I just can’t keep eating those and expect to see the numbers change on the scale. I did really well for a while and then I started to get comfortable.
My first 5k of the season is coming up in a few weeks and I’ve decided I really want to play roller derby next season so I have got to get myself in the best shape I possibly can. That means ramping up my exercise and slimming down my calories. [Read More…]
Hello May! How are you? So, Beltane/May Day just blew right on in here, didn’t it? Mother’s Day whizzed on by. Wow, nice to see you close-to-end-month! Next up – Memorial Day!
As you’ve noticed, my cooking and baking has been
sporadic non existent since the big shift in my life. But, there has been a huge source of inspiration in my life that has given me many smiles lately. [Read More…]
When Matt and I were still living together, one of his/my favorite things to do was take the leftovers and create some sort of fried rice dinner. He’s made the majority of the ethnic cuisines shared here on Nevermore Lane. This one is no exception. It’s no big secret that he and I parted ways recently causing a shift in my life and changes in my living situation. As a result, my blog schedule fell to the wayside. Now that the YUMeating website has been merged and forwarded, I getting back on track with my blog schedule. [Read More…]
I am stepping outside of my comfort zone today. I had zero intentions of sharing this as a post considering the mummified look of a sheet mask. But, you know what? I loved how my face felt so much afterwards that I wanted to praise its glory to all my friends. Sometimes things are worth stepping outside of your comfort zone if it means you can help others out.

I ain’t going to lie. I’m tired. For real. It has been one crazy summer. I am on the road a lot with the traveling, making changes, and going between two houses. Because Js family is helping me with my real estate stuff along with J and I working on our book (there’s a reason why I call him book boy,) sometimes it is just easier for me to stay at his moms. That means I have 2 of everything. One set for here and one set for there.
While that was a good idea, it didn’t really help with the traveling situation. Or the tired situation. All the running around, late night writing or studying sessions and early morning workouts was starting to wreck my skin. Not trying to toot my own horn, but I like the fact if you catch me on a good day I don’t look 41.
It has been one crazy summer. An exceptionally hot one too here in Michigan. I am on the road a lot with the traveling, making changes, and going between my house and all my amazing friends houses. All the running around, late night writing, study sessions, and early morning workouts, this girl just doesn’t have the time to color her hair. [Read More…]
