Today I want to talk about indulgence I think 2013 is the year we need to self indulge and pamper ourselves.  Not only will it help us feel good about ourselves but think of our loved ones, our friends and our co-workers once we have recharged those batteries everyone will be thankful we did. Not saying I have been a bear to live with but as the saying goes "If mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy."  We are caregivers, making sure our loved ones needs are taken care of first, this is the way God made us.  Just saying if we are good to ourselves we are good to others. 

One indulgence I have is Dove Raspberry & Dark Chocolate Swirl.  I stash a couple of bags in kitchen and have two a day.  I just let them melt in my mouth they are so silky and smooth and satisfying.  I can honestly say they make me happy. 

Another indulgence I have is I love homemade soap.  I have a special soap dish I got at Anthropologie a few years back and it is especially for  homemade soaps.  I keep it in the kitchen and after I am done doing the dishes I wash my hands and let the aroma of the soap clear my head.  I found these soaps on Etsy at Faith Soaps and Love

Maybe this is the year you take an online or local college class.  I would love to take a creative writing class, flower arranging or photography not only would I be expanding my horizons but I would be making my life beautiful too.

A trip to the spa, an evening with the girls at a local winery or a shopping trip to check out speciality shops would be a fun way to relax and recharge.  Some of my favorite shopping trips have been when my daughter and I would drive to Santa Barbara, Ojai and Solvang I love shopping at one of kind shops and having lunch at something other than a chain. 

Lets take a deep breath and embrace life

Until Next Time,


  1. I agree whole-heartedly Pam. I began looking after myself last year and I plan on continuing to embrace life for as long as I can. My dreamy chocolate stashed away for special moments is Laura Secord Frosted Mints :)

  2. chocolate I need to try it, I like these homemade soap. Hope you can full fill all the wishes you dreaming for this year.
