This definition of her: to go from her father to her husband, to be pretty, docile – a man made tragedy. Her soul was made of larger, more powerful things, things that create or desecrate armies and galaxies. This is why when she loves she changes kingdoms, and when she hates she destroys legacies.

Fill your life with women that empower you, that help you believe in your magic and aid them to believe in their own exceptional power and their incredible magic too. Women that believe in each other can survive anything. Women who believe in each other create armies that will win kingdoms and wars. Nikita Gill

- Sometimes our best motivation is external.
Often, our best work happens when we’re in a situation we wouldn’t have chosen for ourselves. The hard part is choosing to be in that sort of situation in the first place, the uncomfortable one where we have no choice but to do better work.

We had some guests over this past weekend at the house to thank them for their support during the wedding. Below see the menu we prepared.
Cardamon chicken curry
Lentil and Butternut curry
Green spring vegetable thoran
Sweet potato casserole
I was going for an Indian theme and then my sister and nephew twisted me to make the sweet potato casserole for them. Also, thank God for sisters, halfway through cooking, we experienced a power cut and none of the food was ready. We considered pizza but with no entertainment at ours, we quickly shifted base to my sister’s house that is down the road from ours.
