What a small world!!!! Who would have ever thought I would have bumped into a fellow #alabamian while at work in #Tulsa #itsasmallworldafterall #rolltide 🐘
Last week out of nowhere, I started craving cabbage rolls. Holupchi, as it’s known in Ukrainian, is a dish I’d never once prepared on my own, but one wrapped up in fond memories from my parents’ kitchen, and my grandparents’ kitchen before that. Here's my culinary remembrance and cultural tribute for this treasured dish. #healthwriter #foodwriting #cabbagerolls #ukrainianfood #cauliflowerrice #mindfuleating #eatinghealthfully #eatingonabudget #familyrecipes #southernwriter #culturewriter #manitoba #canadians #alabamian #favoriterecipe #eatwellnotless @topdock1 @tasteofhome
For my braiding followers, this post marks the start of my braiding skills. After I dropped the dogs off and had lunch with my @elviswig , I drove back to Alabama and him to Florida. This was a hard year of marriage and separation.
At any rate with a basically empty house-both in living creatures and possessions, I started cultivating a new skill. It took tools that I already had acquired so it would not messy the house. This was key as were attempting to sell it....which took over a year.
This is how I dealt with the loneliness of the space. I cranked some musical theatre and just stood in the mirror for an hour or two a few nights a week. This also gave me a break from work and school.

I didn't talk about this struggle at the time because I still know the the privilege it was to own a home, be employed, and in school. But it was a hard, sad year.
I am truly lucky to have my family under one roof now...and for OVER TWO YEARS!!! #thanksomaha It only took us over a decade to get here ;) #jh2 #longtermgoals #marriagegoals #separation #alabamian #floridian #nebraskan #illinoisan #braiding #skillbuilding #makinglemons #loneliness
