One of My Favorites “Packard”
Spring’s here and it’s that time of the season to make those transitional moves concerning our clothes and switching out our closets! I’ve been finding it challenging at this stage of my life, concerning what fits well and looks good on me, I ask myself, what’s my style? I tend to lean towards more of a Sporty/Simple/Relaxed/Comfortable-
Minimalistic/Classic type. “Ralph “Lauren” seems to fill my closet these days but mostly it consists of pieces that do not make a outfit and yet I can’t seem to let go of them, thinking Ill find that perfect piece later. So this is where I get wardrobe anxiety, when I have a event to go to, I procrastinate, I wait until the very last minute, then here I am trying on all these stray pieces and no bottoms AND I end up being late because of it, WHY, do I do this to myself, 😫 Does anybody else have this problem or is it just me? Realistically I need pants & Jeans, I dispise trying them on, those and bras, I need both! These two items are a pain & a thorn in my side!
Thank you to “Who What Wear” I’m going to challenge myself to getting my closet straight and my wardrobe on point 😊👍🏻 I’ll keep you posted!
What’s Your Personal Style ?
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

Nothing like a fresh peach after dinner. 😊 we planted a few fruit trees this Spring and I was super excited to see fruit on them already. The baby peaches are cute and tiny but they were ripe so I picked one and OH MIGHTY it was sweet and tasty. Lately I have been lacking energy so I've altered my diet somewhat and tried Quinoa for the first time, WHAT? Why haven't I eaten this before. I've never heard of it until a family friend of ours who's a fitness trainer recommended it. I'm so loving it, It is high in protein and vitamins giving me the energy I need, I prepared it with chicken and some veggies, seasoned with a little Olive oil and Rosemary, OUTSTANDING 😋. Read the benefits it has http://www.healthline.com/nutrition/11-proven-benefits-of-quinoa#section2

While shopping in Port Townsend yesterday I couldn't help but notice these three ladies standing in Nintey degree weather, dressed in black. I admired them for standing in the gap for other women who don't have the freedom as I have. I was enjoying my stroll through the beautiful and unique shops of Port TownsendI with my mother, visiting from the South. I stopped to ask if I could take thier photo and nodding their heads yes without saying a word they were silenced for victims of violence & war. Soon after taking a photo I felt more thankful for the life I lead and the freedom I have. #Humanrights #Womenchangingtheworld #Porttownsend #Standinginthegap #standingforwhatyoubelievein

My Easter Cake I made and I still have a sweet foodies hangover 😫 however I'm proud of the way it turned out Because it started out as a train wreck 😬 it kept leaning the higher I stacked it. I had to bust a move and jam a whole lot of frosting in between to keep her upright 😝 #Eastercake #foodies #Cake #foodplayer #Strawberries #Chocolate #Rasberries #lemoncake #chocolatedrizzle #Foodblogger
