Freedom Fridays


When I chose Freedom as my word for 2013, I thought of it as a one-year study of sorts, but I quickly learned that it would be a life journey.

Which is a good thing.

For the month of October (and maybe beyond, who knows?) I will share a tip, trick, story, or item–something that has helped me walk in greater freedom in my life.

My hope is that it helps you too!

Today I have two fabulous things to share with you.


1. Grown Up Coloring Book


Color has always inspired me. However, in the busyness of my everyday life, between being a mom, wife, friend, and business owner, my creative time got lost. This week, I spontaneously decided to go on an artist date while the kids were in school.

I’d been pinning a myriad of grown up coloring pages on Pinterest for “someday.” Imagine my delight when I walked into my local Michaels and spotted a whole display of grown up coloring books!

It didn’t even stop me when I couldn’t use my 40% off coupon. I grabbed the Abstract Designs book, stopped at home to nab some Crayolas, and headed to the school pickup line–prime coloring time.

So relaxing! There is no right or wrong. No rules. Just color.

Joy. Freedom.

A better me.


2. NingXia Red

You guys!

If I could give all of you a bottle of NingXia Red….

This. Stuff. Is. Good.

I drink 2 oz. of this nutritional supplement antioxidant beverage every morning. It’s formulated so I can actually absorb the nutrients, which support so many aspects of my health–just take a peek at the photos to learn about that.

When I drink it, I am human. When I run out…yikes. Let’s not go there. I make room for it, even in my limited budget.

Happy, functional me.


Now it’s your turn! What brings you greater freedom? I’d love to know!

  1. Freedom for me comes in the times when I can throw a good movie in, though I will crochet occasionally too. You know what I did yesterday. though? After a little tiny bit of stretching and yoga I laid down on the mat is corpse pose and totally crashed for a little bit. Waking up and not feeling guilty? Freedom! LOL
