Drink your veggies!

Hey, blogland! 

I'm back and, dare I say, better than ever!  I say so because during this almost-one-month hiatus from my blog I have been nurturing some new and positive daily habits.  I will start posting about these new aspects of my life as the days go on. :)  I'm happy to be blogging again and reconnecting with my creative spirit.  In the few weeks I've been MIA, I can feel a difference, and it aint pretty!  My creative side needs an outlet, and this is the place I've come to know and love. 

One new thing I've been doing to nurture my body is drinking yummy green smoothies, eating green salads daily, and indulging in lots of healthy teas.  My skin is thanking me! 







*Erin's Green Glow Smoothie*
*1-2 big handfuls of spinach leaves
*1 full banana
*1/2 avacado
*handful of blueberries
*handfull of raspberries
*2 scoops of plain yogurt
*drizzle of honey
*1 spoonful of maca powder
*sprinkling of flax seeds
*splash of soy milk
*big sprinkle of self love!

YUM!

Life Updates!

Ugh...I'm not proud of my blog absence as of late!  This little corner of the web is so important to me because it is an outlet where I can express myself, release things from the corners of my mind, and gather my thoughts.  I hope that it can be inspirational and interesting to others, too. 

I usually blog at work on my lunches or breaks, because my computer at home has some issues.  Lately, though, work has been so busy that I don't have a moment to breathe. I feel my creativity tangling up inside as a result of not regularly blogging. 

This has to stop!  I will find a way. :)

As I get back into my bloggin' flow, here are some moments of life lately, in pictures:

New hair color for a new year!



I'm getting in touch with my dark side (in a great way!) as I enter this new year.  I am really excited about new beginnings.  I feel so ready to shed some outworn layers I've been dragging around and putting on a new, fresh and funky coat!  Themes for the new year include thinking outside the box and well, WINNING!

Bring it, 2012.

I started writing out a little rough draft for my generic "New Years!!!" post, and even filled a whole page with inspirational musings and reflections on what I learned in 2011. I got super into my thoughts and introspective. In honor of my resolutions for 2012, however, I decided to tear up my analysis and throw it in the trash!

I want to be free in 2012! I simply want to live each day to the fullest and do the things that nurture who I am at my core.

This means MORE:
reading
loving
giving
receiving
learning
moving
dancing
singing
laughing
creating

This simply means more of what makes me smile and less of what crinkles my brow into a worried face. Life is so short and I am so incredibly lucky to be a healthy young woman with dreams in my heart, so I intend to forge ahead and live the life I have imagined in 2012. The no crinkle face part also implies that I won't care so much about what anyone else thinks or understands about me, and WILL care about what I think and understand.

I'll leave this last post of 2011 with an adorable duet from two of my most favorite people, Zooey and Joey. I'm in love with this video and these two. Simply in love!!
