Tonight I needed a little daydreaming activity. Usually this involves hopping on Pinterest. How James and I would take a bath, then relax with a cup of tea and enjoy that view! It was too good not to share. x Tamara

I may not see signs of new life as of yet, but I’m ready for Spring! Fresh sun-kissed flavors, thunderstorms, sleeping with windows open. 
This Winter I’ve been a hermit, living a life far from my dream, losing my art and creative outlets to my overload of stress. 
Now Spring has come and I’m remembering how I feel when I snap a photograph. Remembering how calming it is to sit on my bed, coffee or tea on the nightstand, listening to iHeartRadio while I blog my thoughts and insights.
 Instagram has been the key for me to start photo-journaling my experience in life again, and I’m hoping Tumblr can be a safe place for me to share myself once again and remind myself how much I have to be grateful for, even through hard times..
I am grateful for…
The thunderstorm tonight, the rain calms me.
Teaching a little girl how to season food while we cooked together.
Searching for good simple blogs to read, no BS, just real people sharing real life and real thoughts. Know any?

I made cupcakes this weekend. I love baking but since I’m trying to be healthier I can’t have a bunch of cupcakes around my home. However this weekend I went to a dinner party and strawberry cheesecake cupcakes were the perfect thing to bring. Good health tip for those that love to bake but don’t want a bunch of sweets in the kitchen. x Tamara #redcoatstudio
