Be the ocean, where I unravel, be the water where I’m wading.

I will wade out
till my thighs are steeped in burning flowers
I will take the sun in my mouth
and leap into the ripe air
with closed eyes.

I will rise
After a thousand years
And set my teeth in the silver of the moon.

— E.E. Cummings

I have had a lot of doctors appointments lately and have an entirely new eating plan, exercise and herb/supplements regime. I am going to be making a blog post about that soon. I am going to be cooking a lot more and becoming more creative in the kitchen. My stomach has been so bad again that I am going to be eating very simple foods for a few weeks and although I have already been gluten and dairy free for years I will also be eliminating all grains for awhile and see how my body feels.

I will go more into detail about everything in an upcoming post.

I have not only been using Jojoba Oil on my face (which I talked about in my blog post here) but I have discovered how amazing it is for my hair as well. I put about a teaspoon of it in my hair after conditioning, let it sink in and then rinse it out. After my hair feels SO silky and smooth and it’s been growing even faster than usual! I love it.

Tayo looking handsome as usual. My love.

My nephew Carter was born a week ago today. I am so in love with him.

that face!!!!!

I have literally become one of those annoying aunts that just keeps posting photos of and bragging about my nephew.

I can’t help it – he’s the cutest thing I have ever seen.

  1. Can’t wait to hear about the new diet and how different you feel once you’re off of grains!! I’m so proud of you and I promise this will be the best decision you’ve ever made for your body.

    1. I am really excited to see how my body reacts to not having grains of any kind anymore. I have been off of Gluten for years now but have had way too many other processed grains like rice, etc. Thanks love. I am hoping I will feel better once I am following this plan!
