Shortly after Easter this year I got a very bad concussion that left me on full bed rest for three weeks and semi bed rest for another 3 weeks. For the first three weeks after the diagnosis I was not allowed to use a computer or a phone. I could not even watch TV. I was only allowed to sleep or take a walk if I felt good. The first couple of weeks were hard. The following weeks were better as I learned how to pace myself. I realized that my body was quite adept at letting me know when it had had enough. And so I listened to me and surprisingly, I learned a lot about myself. 
For the first time in my life I was able to rest without guilt and it was wonderful. I unplugged and reconnected with nature and it made me incredibly happy. This enabled me to see ME for the first time in what seemed like forever and I started to understand what was missing in my life, what I needed and what I no longer needed. 
For a very long time I have equated my worth with …

Green with envy

Inspired by my friend Zeina, today I went in pursuit of all things green. Naturally some of the most beautiful green colors are found in herbs which can complement any style of cooking or kitchen decor. Is there anything more wonderful than some home baked bread and some fresh herbs and oil to go along with it.  The smell is simply intoxicating. See if these pictures don't inspire you to get out your mortar and pestle......
