We’re all eco-conscious. We’ve come of age in an era in which we learned about turning off the water when we brushed our teeth and recycling our paper and plastic. Yet, what we’ve come to realize is it takes more than conserving water and cashing in our cans.

There’s nothing wrong with getting older, in fact, we should be celebrating every year more we get because some have not been so lucky. I have a dear friend who always says, “Don’t be sad about your birthday, it’s better than not having one.” She’s right. I want to age gracefully. I’m not saying I’m looking forward to watching the youth slide right off my face (because I know it will), but I’d rather my children learn from me that growing older means growing wiser, not uglier. Grace and beauty, for me, mean not rushing to the plastic surgeon for Botox and face lifts, but acknowledging my skin needs a little more help now than it did in my twenties.
I’m not a cook. Don’t get me wrong, I make plenty of healthy and tasty meals for my family, but I don’t particularly get fancy with seasonings and spices in my pantry. I’m more of a back to basics, enjoy the natural flavor of the food type of Bombshell. That’s not to say I don’t enjoy the talents of others, I just don’t have the knack myself. What I am fabulous at, though, is discovering completely out-of-the-box ideas on how I can use all of those exotic herbs, savory seeds and spectacular spices.
I’m going to be perfectly honest here, I LOVE SPRING. The sun is out earlier and longer, the weather warms up and my favorite plum trees out in front of my house blossom with incredible pink flowers that brighten every morning. My family celebrates Easter, which traditionally centered around candy-filled baskets and a big feast with ham as the centerpiece.
Spring Break, not for naught, is typically seen as the time when college kids disconnect their brains while us grown-ups get stuck doing terribly unglamorous things like cleaning closets and washing the walls. And Bombshells with younger kids are faced with the daunting task of entertaining them while they complain about how their best friend is headed to Borneo for five days while they’re stuck at home in Lame-ville.
Taking a trip with your main squeeze is one of the best ways to spark some romance in your otherwise monotonous routine. Whether it’s a one-night retreat a mile from home or a month long trans-continental escapade, make the most of your time away and pack a little passion in your suitcase.
