Yes!!!!! Circumstances in my life recently were all about this... I spent many nights meditating on it for personal reasons and certain individuals in my life.

LOL! My Grandma had a way of screwing up expressions because she was from Italy, but grew up mostly in America, so she was bilingual. But she could never get them right. It was hilarious, if I can remember some, I'll post them.

One of the things she used to say if someone was being uncomplimentary towards her, was... "Do you have any more bouquets you would like to throw at me?" haha!

OH, and she had these two huge wooden rolling pins from all the massive baking she did. I mean they were monsters. They could of been used as home protection as well as rolling out dough.
And if my Grandpa came home drunk and went in to kitchen to aggravate her, we used to wait outside and time how long it would take her to chase him out waving one of those giant rolling pins.

Fiesty Italian Aries women = Scary!!

I often say to myself; it's hard working for dreams.


I just love glitters in clothes and make-up.
