Bourbon has been my vice lately. I continually blame it on my Kentucky roots.
After the kids go to bed and I have a moment to myself I love making a drink like this and sitting down to my computer to write. It makes me feel old in a good way. Like I did a good job raising my kids today and now I have a unique time to myself to explore my own desires instead of minding the children. It’s a special moment.
Shows are my other vice. I could sit in front of the television for days before I feel the need to get up. That’s not something I’m proud of. I wish my vice was running. I know people like that. They say, “I just have to go run to my yoga class and then drink a fresh spinach, kale and chia seed smoothie or I will just explode” Not me people. Maybe someday. I did just join the gym and I recently turned the television off for 40 days. While the tv was off I started writing more, learned a lot about essential oils and lost 5 pounds. I may be on my way.
