The way to his heart

Walnut Heaven!

The secret ingredient to having a healthy and loving relationship heavily depends on making an effort to show the other person that you care and pay attention to them. Every man has a sweet spot–mine just happens to be in love with a russian style cake called Vafelne Tort which in English translates to Waffle Cake! Although I am a woman, that doesn’t necessarily mean I am the best cook. However, I am proud to say that  I can make this particular cake taste mmm mmm delicious!

How so you ask? Continue reading


A Healthy Love

My ingredients for a healthy relationship…

Clip from movie: Crazy Stupid Love

  • A relationship built on the foundation of a solid friendship: A relationship without a strong friendship will never work. In order to have a true partnership, there must be a friendship between two individuals. A friendship in which you are there for the other person, no matter what. You will be there to wipe their tears, to hold their hand, to comfort them, to laugh with them over nonsense and to give them advice when they need it. A relationship takes great work on both parts. We would do anything for our friends; especially for the man/woman that we love.  Continue reading

Wishes in the Air

Balloon-ing Around

Make A Wish

As a child, I remember being told that if you let a balloon free into the sky and made a wish, it would come true one day. I never understood how this could be possible as a child, but I wished anyways.

I’d like to think that there is a collection of balloons high up in the sky somewhere with my many childhood wishes still floating–maybe one day they will come true. In the meanwhile, I’m working at making my dreams and wishes come true and not letting anything or anyone stand in my way of making them a reality.

**Here’s a super cute clip from one of my favorite Disney movies Up featuring Carl & Ellie. Always be grateful for love, when you find it, appreciate one another and treat each other with devotion, loyalty and never lose your passion for one another.

First Kiss Flop


Classic movies are a true treasure, and have some of the most romantic kisses:

Pucker up. Kissing. Smooching. A sweet exchange between two lips. Tongue twisting. Call it what you will, but with the right person you just can’t seem to get enough of attacking them with kisses! At least that’s how I feel now…♥

When I met the man of my dreams a.k.a the love of my life a little over a year ago; thank goodness I didn’t give up on him after our first kiss! It was one of those kisses that needed to be filmed because it just went wrong, oh so wrong! There was more teeth clanking than lips smooching. To this day he still believe it was me doing the clanking. I don’t think so mister! Continue reading

A Mother’s Love

I am grateful to have a mom whom has been a nurse for twenty-five years is such a selfless and extraordinary woman and individual. She will put her needs aside to take care of her family. No matter how she is feeling herself, she will do everything in her power to make sure her husband, daughters and parents are feeling their very best.

When I got sick this past week with food poisoning from a chicken caesar wrap (side note: DON’T EAT SANDWICHES THAT HAVE BEEN IN A GLASS SHOWCASE ALL DAY) my mom was there by my side, making sure I was warm, brining me tea with honey, making me breakfast and comforting me. Continue reading

Happy Snoopy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is a time to cherish those whom are close to you such as family and friends.  So hurry up and go stuff that Turkey, stir up the cranberry sauce, mash up sweet potatoes and gather up all the family troops.

Not all of us are as privileged to share a Thanksgiving that is filled with those who love and care for us and  with an abundance of home-cooked food. Be grateful for what you have this year and take the time to do something special for someone else. Whether that means donating your time at a shelter, volunteering at a charity/organization, giving toys to children whose parents can’t afford to purchase them and sharing with those who aren’t able to have a festive Thanksgiving holiday.

Everyone deserves to be surrounded by loved ones on this special day. So remember, just because you have a family and friends and plenty of food to go around, there are many others who don’t. Plan on doing something extra for someone else in any way that you can. This holiday isn’t just about eating, it’s about giving and being thankful for the life that we have and giving others a chance to have a beautiful life as well.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
