Bappy hirthday to me!

Today, I turn 29! Again… 😉

Actually, I really love being in my thirties. I feel a bit more settled and at home in me, and long for this to only increase with age.

As I always seem to be on here apologizing for my delay in posting or for taking months off, it’ll be no surprise to read “I’m sorry!” again – and I am. I can’t seem to express in words just how ill I’ve been. I could be wrong, but I believe I mentioned seeing a naturopathic physician, and just being fed up with the medical system in general. Ok, so I promise I won’t turn this into a venting session, but lets say that the last several years of me not feeling well, but nothing showing up on tests, has left me feeling more than a little crazy, honestly. Now this wonderful new doctor runs tests and finds SO much wrong. I know I should probably be upset, but I’m just happy it means I’m not (entirely) crazy! It’s been a long, rough journey with the last couple of months not being an exception, but today, on my birthday, I’m actually starting to feel better. I’m not ready to shout this out on top of rooftops yet, but a whisper will suffice. It’s a really nice gift!

I’ll probably be gone for a bit longer, but I do have a few recipes to post – some yummy, some… not as much, but that’s what you get for trying out recipes, right? Right!

So here’s leaving you with wishes for a very Merry Christmas, and a happy and healthy New Year, spent with those you hold dear!!

xoxo

About Heather.B

I'm a thirty-something (how did I get so old?!) esthetician (Jan 2009), soon-to-add holistic services (Jan 2013), and then onto business school with a few more endeavors in the works. Stayed tuned though as this changes often. I call it "what-to-be-when-I'm-a-grown-up ADD" - but here's a great quote of encouragement if you're similar in nature: “The experience of centering was one I particularly sought because I thought of myself as dispersed, interested in too many things. I envied people who were ‘single-minded,’ who had one powerful talent and who knew when they got up in the morning what it was they had to do. Whereas I, wherever I turned, felt the enchantment: to the window for the sweetness of the air; to the door for the passing figures; to the teapot, the typewriter, the knitting needles, the pets, the pottery, the newspaper, the telephone. Wherever I looked I could have lived. It took me half my life to come to believe I was okay even if I did love experience in a loose and undiscriminating way and did not know for sure the difference between good and bad. My struggles to accept my nature were the struggles of centering.” – [from Centering in Pottery, Poetry, and the Person by Mary Caroline Richards] I'm a lover of animals (especially my bird and cat), my niece and nephew (and #3 on HER way), and plants; an avid crochet-er (and other crafty things), amateur photographer, baker extraordinaire, dreamer of travels far away (camping and road trips settle me for now), searcher of different music, and beloved daughter of The King. Add in a penchant for being taught new things, and you've got a good idea of what you're dealing with here. I, also, have an endocrine disorder (PCOS) that causes me to have a low carb diet and an insatiable appetite for holistic health (along with a big butt) - I console myself with the reminder that there are worse things, like being eaten by an alligator. Lastly, I've found I get bored easily and procrastinate like it's my job. So who knows how steadily I'll contribute to this. Welcome! If you choose to read this, I've warned you fairly ;), and I really hope you enjoy the variety of my life. Please send me a note and let me know about you!
