Where I Get My Creativity From?

I personally think that everyone has some originality just by some of the things they do, whether it’s crafts or woodwork or even cooking and baking. I know that creativity can run in families but just in different unique ways. In my family inventiveness definitely runs in my family but each family members has different artistry which is what I love about my family. In addition at the same time some of us have the same creativity as well.

My individuality is shown in different ways including baking and cooking, crafts, sewing, blogging, music, & so much more.

In some ways I think I have food and dessert ADD or ADHD to say the least, which at times I’m proud of because it makes my individuality stand out even more! My ideas randomly pop up in my head while I’m riding horses, reading, cooking an baking other deliciousness, spending time with my wonderful family, watching TV… specifically the Food Network Channel but also when I’m watching non-foodie shows, and probably once I start working out in the gym again I’ll be thinking about food which will give me even more ideas to give a try. There’s times where I’m thinking of unique food ideas and recipes to try that just magically make a theme pop up in my head that help get my individuality going even more, I love it! In addition, I also sometimes get inspiration from other bloggers or y’all or my family members!

I have to admit that my individuality when it comes to baking and cooking is one of my favorite parts of blogging!

Thank you for reading more about my loveliness!

Suicide

Suicide Awareness Day: September 10th

Today I thought I would write a post that touches home to many people I know and I’m sure lots of strangers. I know it happens often and my family had to go through it a few years back with one of my uncles. Anyways, over the years I’ve heard many people say that people commit suicide because they’re selfish which isn’t the case at all. It’s because they’re hurting and are tired of the pain, it’s hurts the family’s of those who commit suicide when you say their family members committed suicide because they’re selfish when that definitely wasn’t the case.

In honor of suicide awareness day; September 10th, 2017 I would write a little bit about suicide awareness as I’m sure suicide has touched a lot of people’s lives including strangers who will be reading this. I personally am logically and need to see the facts/statistics written out so I can visualize them in my head to be able to comprehend them.


Facts & Statistics about Suicide:

  • Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States.
  • Each year 44,193 Americans die by suicide.
  • For every suicide 25 attempt.
  • Suicide costs the United States $51 billion annually.
  • On average, there are 121 suicides per day.
  • Firearms count for almost 50% of all suicides.
  • Men die 3.5x more often than women.
  • Suicide is the second leading cause of death for ages 10-24.
  • Suicide is the second leading cause of death for college-age youth and ages 12-18.
  • More teenagers and young youth adults die from suicide than from cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects, stroke, pneumonia, influenza, and chronic lung disease;  COMBINED!
  • Four out of five teens who attempt suicide have given clear warning signs.
  • Each day in our nation, there are an average of over 3,470 attempts by young people grades 9-12.

There’s some facts about suicide for y’all to think about! Hopefully this makes some people think twice before spouting off that the person/people who commit suicide are selfish because that isn’t the case, actually that’s far from it; it’s because the person who commits suicide is tired of hurting.

From the family member of a family who lost someone because they committed suicide please think twice before you say that to the family/friends of the person who committed suicide!

Hopefully this helps people out some!

Applebee’s Review 

One of our favorites restaurants to eat at is Applebee’s. 🍎 I personally love it for most of the appetizers, the pasta 🍝 dishes, the kiwi 🥝 lemonade, & the chocolate desserts!

Anyways this past Tuesday we went to an Applebee’s in New Hampshire for suppa!

I had a kiwi 🥝 lemondade, chicken wanton tacos 🌮 as an appetizer, & pasta 🍝 for the main dish of my suppa!

I have to say the everything from the kiwi 🥝 lemonade to the pasta 🍝 dish I had was truly amazing!!! 😍❤️😋

The staff and atmosphere at Applebee’s is so amazing especially the ones in New England who’s decor is all about the professional sports teams in New England! ❤️

I would absolutely recommend people eating at an Applebee’s 🍎 for a meal!
