Spinach Lasagna Rolls

The other day I made some seriously awesome Spinach Lasagna Rolls! I had a few people ask me for the recipe (which was so easy), so
THIS is where I got the recipe. Enjoy!

I was given a chance to help my husband with a few projects at school lately. I was actually really excited that he asked me for my help, and even more excited when he told me what a great job I did. It made me want to (again) write more! I think he asks me for help just so he can get my artistic juices flowing. I used to write poetry all the time, and when I was in school, I loved having writing projects. Now that I'm not in school I'm having the hardest time finding what to talk to all of you about. Maybe I'm worried that I'll write about pointless things and no one will care to read it.


Not sure if you can relate to that feeling, but that is a huge road block in figuring out what to do with my future. what if I'm not good enough? What if no one likes me or what I'm doing? What if really no one cares? what if, what if, what if. That is really what I think about all day every day. I'm honestly terrified to do something that I might be good at because, in the end, what if  I'm really not good at it.


So this all boils down to one point, you'll never know unless you give it a try. I've read a specific quote so many times by now that I should have it memorized, SHOULD is the key word here. Instead of having it memorized, I just wrote it down for you all in case you need a pick me up about things you want to do in your life, and in case you haven't already read it.


What if I fall?

Oh, but my darling what if you fly? -E.H.


Such a simple quote that just reminds you that you can't be too scared that you wont succeed to not even try. You must at least take a step, leap, or jump, of faith to even find out.


Here is the last time I'll use these two words today, What if  you are supposed to succeed?

Writing legs

I've had a conversation with my husband recently about what I want to go to school for. Yes, we had a "where are you going with your life" conversation. I honestly could not tell him. I don't know many things that I'm actually good at...So he asked," What do you love?"

I have few passions in my life, but they are passions I should be sharing with you all! One of these passions is writing. I have always loved to write. Give me a topic and I will write my heart out. Even if I never become a journalist one day, or never have a household name when it comes to a novel, I hope that all my writings will at least be shared in my family through the generations.

My best friend Alexandra and I were just talking yesterday about her grandma having so many journals written in. She told me how awesome it was to look through and see all the cool stuff she wrote. Then we talked about how bad we'd like to do that, but never seem to have the time. I literally look at my journal every night on my nightstand and think...." I should really write in this", then I go to sleep. I believe this laziness that is bestowed in my body is a generation thing. Something I'd like to change drastically. I don't want to be 80 years old one day and wishing I would have documented more. This should be just as important as washing and moisturizing my face at night...(just to let you know, that is actually VERY important to me. I haven't missed that ritual in about 5 years).

Talking about writing in my journal makes me think about my blog. I've been neglecting this blog for sooooo long. Yea I have a busy life, but who doesn't? So if you see a blog post from me coming soon that is just me rambling about whatever comes to my mind... just enjoy it. That is me just getting my writing legs... you know... kind of like sea legs when you are on a boat... but my writing legs are for when I'm getting the hang of writing again
