Hello My Dear Darling Friends! This week may not have been as fun as last week, but it was still a good week. Last Sunday I started my 21 Day Bone Broth experiment which was inspired by Dr. Kellyann. I decided that Sundays and Wednesdays would be my bone broth mini fast days and I […]Read More 2020 Happiness Project Week #3
Hello My Dear Darling Friends! This week was a lot more lighthearted and more fun than last week! I have been obsessed with the wild chickens (I call them the Oreos because they are black and white) who appeared on Christmas Eve and have adopted us ever since. The first time I saw them they […]Read More 2020 Happiness Project Week #2
Hello My Dear Darling Friends! We have made it through week #1 of the year 2020! Historically, I have written these weekly posts on Sundays, but I think I will try doing a mid-week update and then if I fall behind I can always move it back to Sunday. This has been a bit of […]Read More 2020 Happiness Project: Week #1
I guess in my case this is the 13 year challenge. The sad thing is that I have no pictures of myself from 2008 through most of 2010.

For a fleeting moment I thought that I would try and remember all the […]Read More The End of the Be-YOU-tifully YOU Project 2.0 Week #51 & 52
Hello My Dear Darling Friends! Doesn’t 2020 have a nice ring to it? We have just 5 days left in 2019 and I would like to spend this time organizing my life and letting go of the baggage I have been dragging along. This last decade from 2010-now has been very heavy, but also full […]Read More Is it bad to want more?
Happy 7th Birthday Living Out Loud! Has it already been 7 years? I started this blog at the end of 2012 when I was in such a dark place that nothing seemed to matter. I was going through the motions of life and everything felt black, white, or overly grey. I was brokenhearted and just […]Read More Happy 7th Birthday Living Out Loud!
Hello My Dear Darling Friends! I have noticed that each week has a different pace and theme. This week was about self-discovery. I stayed closer to home and spent more time journaling and a lot of time reading. I just realized that I have read 15 books since September. That may not seem like very […]Read More Be-YOU-tifully YOU Project 2.0 Week #50
One day you were just minding your own business… It was a sunny morning in March and the guy you were seeing at the time made a comment about how he would probably always want to be with a thinner girl.
