News, Death, Traveling, and Giveaways

I know I said I wouldn't post until March 7th, but I've got a few "announcements" (for lack of a better word). First of all, I don't think I told any of you, but for a while my great-grandmother was in the Hospital, suffering from several strokes. She kept getting worse and yesterday at about 1 in the morning she gave up her battle, and died. If you could keep my grandmother (Nana) in your prayers, that would be very much appreciated! She is very upset over grandma, and dad... and a lot of other things, so please pray that she will remain strong. Also, my uncle and one of my cousins is coming down tomorrow from another state (about 14 hours away), so please pray that they will have a safe trip. Thank you!


Also, I had one of my followers ask about the diet we're on (and I'm sure you're all wanting to know a little more about it and why I am taking a break... even though I'm posting now... anyways...) so I thought I'd tell you a little more about that. We are going on a vegan diet. It is called the Gerson Therapy and mom has studied up on it and many, many people with diseases like Cancer, MS, Lymphoma, (etc) have been completely healed by following this diet. The reason why it will be taking up so much of my time is because part of the diet is drinking and making 13 juices (out of carrots, apples, and some green veggies) a day (one every hour). Also, you can't just make the juices in the morning and drink them throughout the day, you HAVE to make them and then immediately drink them, or the Gerson "peeps" say you loose the nutrients in it. We are eating no meets *stretches out hands towards a big juicy hamburger*. No berries. No oils (besides coconut oil). No beans (except for string beans). No dairy products. Only fruits and veggies... but no berries *pictures a big red strawberry and cries*. Anyways, that's not even the full of it. Ugh! Don't get me started on how much I DO NOT want to do this. Please, if any of you have any extra room in your house, I'd be more than happy to fill it. (lol jk).


Now, about the giveaways. I'm just going to list them. Here are some lovely giveaways I have entered:






I hope you enter them! Love you all and I've really missed you! <3
