I Moved!

Hello guys!

Today is a very important post and I am super excited about it, because I moved!

I told you that i was was going to host my blog and I finally did it and I am so beyond excited! I actually just launched it a few minutes ago and wanted to tell you guys here first before I wrote a new post.

I thought about moving this one but I really wanted a complete fresh start on it but it will basically be the same idea as it is here, only I will be aiming for the content to be a little higher quality. I think pretty soon I will import some of my favorite posts that I have done but that is basically it!

I am so super excited so please follow me on my new and improved blog and thank you all so much for the support!

Warning!

Hello there guys!
So as some of you have known for a little while now, I have been thinking about hosting this blog for a while now and I am finally doing the thing today! I am not 100% sure what I am doing or where I want to go with it because I am sure that the whole look and feel of the blog will be new and improved too!

This is something that I am super excited about but also kind of nervous. I am not really sure about if I will be able to keep all of the content or if I will have to start fresh. Either way, I think that it will be super fun to have this new and improved corner on the internet!

A lot of things seem to be up in the air but follow me on twitter and bloglovin‘ to stay up to date on everything.

I am kind of making decisions as I go, because that is just the kind of person I am, but everything will be straightened out within a week or so!

Thank you guys for all of your support!

My taste buds are changing!

I can still remember a time when I was younger when I absolutely hated the taste of coffee. I would beg the adults around me to try it and once they finally gave in and let me have a taste, I hated it. How strange is that?

You and I both know that coffee is an essential part of daily life in order to be a productive human being.

I started drinking coffee when I was about 16 years old. not as much as I do now, but that is around the time where I actually began to like the taste. Now I enjoy the taste. I genuinely think that the taste of coffee is so delicious!

This was one of the first times I actually noticed it happening. Where I hated something and then loved it so much as I aged.

More recently, I have noticed these changes happening more and more. Within the past few months I decided that I can no longer stand peanut butter. I used to love eating peanut butter so much, like I was that kid that ate peanut butter with a spoon out of the jar. Now I hate it.

I can no longer stand the taste of peanut butter.

I hate the way it makes my throat feel.

I can’t even stand the smell of it any longer.

Also, this has happened to me with chocolate, only different. I still like chocolate so much, but it is so sweet to me now, that having too much hurts my teeth. I have also became partial to dark chocolate. I now LOVE dark chocolate. The darker the better. I find it so funny and weird that I am now veering away from milk chocolate and running toward the dark side. hehe.

I found this so interesting and thought that it was worth talking about (hopefully you think so too), so much so that I looked into it a little bit and found this really interesting article here. Give it a read because I thought that it was interesting.

This entire article was informative and I learned a lot from it but I particularly enjoyed the part where it explained why kids don’t like bitter food and many have a “sweet tooth” and how that changes as they get older. Which is basically what has been happening to me.

Sweet foods are interpreted by the brain as good foods to want to eat because they are high in sugar, thus having more energy which is why kids are gravitated towards sweets. Whereas the brain sees bitter food as a toxin, so when kids eat something bitter they tend to not want to eat it. That is so cool, because that is the body’s way of protecting itself until you grow up and learn what is safe to eat and what isn’t.

This makes so much sense if you really think about it! I think that is so cool. Now it makes sense when kids don’t want to eat their vegetables and would much prefer fruits or something sweeter. It also makes sense why they change over time now too!

Mystery solved!

Have you noticed and changes in your taste buds that seemed strange? Something new you began to like but didn’t before, or something you loved but now hate?

Wine Tour!

HI friends!

I had quite an exciting weekend. This weekend I went with all of my friends on a wine tour for the first time! I had so much fun and tried so many different kinds of wines and it felt like I expanded my horizons as far as the types of wine that I like! Plus, I really missed my friends a lot and we all had such a great day together! I took some pretty cool pictures throughout the day and thought that I would share them here!

I learned that wine country is a beautiful and delicious place! I took pictures of most, but not all of the wineries and also of the pretty scenery!

Since this was my first time doing this sort of thing it made it so much more fun since I had no clue what I was in store for. It was also the first time for my friends too, so we were all taking it all in together which was so cool! We were celebrating my friend’s birthday since she was the last one in the group to turn 21!

Her mom planned the whole thing and she did a wonderful job, we rented one of those giant airport vans to drive around in and brought tons of food and drinks to have in the van while we drove all over to about six different wineries.

One thing that I would say is that you have to be careful drinking so much so early in the day because it tends to wipe you out! What I did was drink tons of water in the van between stops in order to stay hydrated. Also, keep snacking and eating! Drinking on an empty stomach is not a good idea. You just have to remember to take care of yourself so that you don’t regret it later!

It was so much fun, I cannot wait to do another one.
