Now back to our regularly scheduled blogging…

Oh yeah....I do have a blog.  After too many months away, I am ready to blog again.  I have a new blog look, a new outlook on life, a desire to lose weight and finally get healthy, and a desire to build a thriving and creative business.  Currently I am a work in progress, but for the first time in a very long time, I am feeling optimistic about...well, everything.
First, my weight.  I am tired of being fat.  There...I said it.  I just don’t want to be fat anymore. High blood pressure, arthritic knee, feeling ugly… more. I know it will take time, but I am ready. Finally, at the age of 44 (45 in January), I can say that I am ready.  In addition to other things, I want to document my journey to good health and happiness.  I have more than 100 pounds to lose and I know that I can’t think long term. Those numbers can be overwhelming.  I need to take this one day at a time, maybe some days even a minute at a time, but I need, no I WILL, get there.

 I am also going to use this blog to document some of my yummy vegan cooking, wonderful recipes that I have "veganized" myself and others that I have tried that my wonderful blog friends have shared with me.  I love to cook and I love organic.

And finally, I will use this blog to document and share my crafty creations, as well as those of my mom and brother (who I run etsy sites for!!).  We haven't officially opened my mom's etsy store yet, but am planning to do so Thanksgiving weekend (when I have 5 days off in a row!! woot!!).  She has some aprons that truly rock!!!  I will share them here when we get them up.  I also run an etsy site for my amazing artist brother, so will share some of his work as well. And when I am ready to open my etsy store back up, I will share that as well.

OK, glad to be back to blogging!!  Now it's time to catch up with some of my favorites!!

Love, Lolly
