Chestnuts roasting on an open fire…

As I sit here and blog, if you couldn’t tell by the blog title…I am sitting in my living room near the picture perfect fire (made by yours truly) in the fireplace (pictured below) while I wait for my homemade bread to rise. 🙂

I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays, family, friends, and time off! I know I am loving not stressing over projects and homework.

As I sit here by the fire, I can’t help but think of how peaceful and relaxing it is just to simply sit by a fire with my family. In the world we live in today, it is so fast-paced, that we feel unproductive or lazy if we stop to just enjoy the simple things in life. I think it’s important to as some say, “stop and smell the roses” You never realize what you overlook, until you take the time to truly appreciate everything that surrounds you.

One of my favorite quotes is, “There is more to life than increasing its speed.” –Gandhi

I desperately want to travel the world, but until I get the chance, I think I am going to travel Ohio. There is so much to see throughout Ohio, that I have never been to a lot of it and would really like to take the time to enjoy what Ohio has to offer.

So stay tuned for blogs about my travels throughout the great state of Ohio! 🙂

-Happy New Year!!!-
