I see I have been terrible with being on here. I have to say it’s all schools fault!! I have until January 7th till my new classes start. I am very excited with one of my classes because it’s the principle of health and wellness. Totally up my alley.
So I just finished Kristen Ashley’s Heaven and Hell, as usual I was able to connect very well with the characters. There was an absolute yummy alpha male and some good lessons in the story. There is a part where Kia is in Italy and a friend Celeste tells her “A man must prove he deserves the honor of you sharing those secrets, a woman should never make the mistake of sharing any of her secrets with a man who does not prove he deserves to have them.” Then through more conversation Celeste adds” Do not accept another man in your life who does not rise to that challenge and do it gallantly”.
I wish I had a Celeste in my life!
Then Kia finds out that Sam is paying for her to have protection, Kia of course wants to help out and offers to pay for it. Wrong thing to say to Sam though, being he is the macho alpha male :). Sam proceeds to tell her “Don’t cross this line. I protect myself. I protect my home. I protect my family. And I protect my woman. I do it how I need to do it. No discussion. Are you with me?” Sigh……is there such thing out there in the world?
In Kia thinking about Sam and him holding back his feelings and all that good stuff she was getting upset with Sam, she mentions this in her head. To start falling, you had to trust the person you were falling for to catch you. Another light bulb moment for me, so I highlight it in my kindle so I can write that down in my book of quotes and inspirations.
You got one life, never use it just to breathe
I had one life and I lived it for seven years doing nothing but focusing on each day, each breath, not living my dreams, not seeking excitement, not pursuing happiness, not searching for my slice of heaven. When I read this I had to add it to the book too.
When you earn the secrets of someone worth knowing that deeply, you will feel rewarded when he eventually offers you these treasures. So my darling, patience. You will earn them, I have no fear. He will give them to you and when he does, they will feel like the gift they are. That is Celeste talking to Kia about Sam again. Love me some Celeste!
The last thing that I highlighted; Life’s too short to live with demons and life’s too short to miss one second bein’ with the ones you love.

I went to Barnes and Nobles today and bought two cookbooks, both Italian one is by Lidia Bastianich and the other is by Teresa Giudice. I am trying to try new recipes and also add in as much veggies as I can.
OH and FINALLY after 2 years I have a Nutribullet, next on my list to get is a juicer. Can’t be too healthy :).
I’ll try really hard not to be so terrible coming on here. Maybe I’ll tell you all about my health and wellness class and teach you a lil something:).
