We’re one month into 2017 and day 13 into Emperor Baby Fists reign of terror and I’m ready to fast forward to whenever he gets impeached. But I am also a big believer in two things: 1) Not being silent and 2) Happiness is the best revenge. I will not be silent, nor will I wallow in misery and give away my joy for the next four years. I will be loud, happy and #resist.
A Surreal, Busy, Rainy Month for Me
It certainly felt surreal when we inaugurated a toddler who whined about his attendance numbers and complained to the CIA about it. I’m pretty sure that is a first. And certainly not the worst act he’s done thus far. Unfortunately. But enough about him. January was an exceptionally rainy month for California, which we desperately needed but it felt weird. It rained more this month that it probably has the entire 10 years I’ve lived here. The rain was phenomenal and appreciated but the lack of sun felt odd.
I am not a huge picture taker and hate taking selfies so no pictures of the rain. Or my book club or the yummy lamb braise I devoured. We met at Green Tomato Grill in Tustin and it is delicious! And really healthy, if you are entire that kind of thing. 😀 I’ll try to do better this month but no promises!
Pet Funnies to Keep You Sane in an Insane World
Cats. Dogs. They represent my happy place where only good things happen.
This is Max and me every night. 😀
I’m not 100% sure who is backing up who but I wouldn’t mess with them.
This makes me laugh so damn hard.
So freaking awesome.
Yummy Food I Made and Ate
I’m trying to eat healthier and I am making better choices, although I’m far from perfect. Good recipes like these definitely help me!
Best Political Funny
#truth. And freaking scary that an Alt-White Leader is the puppet master.

Never Be Quiet
A beautiful song that speaks to my heart.
But no one knows me, no one ever will
if I don’t say something, if I just lie still
Would I be that monster, scare them all away
If I let the-em hear what I have to say
I won’t keep quiet and hope you won’t either. Speak. Share. Listen.
