Quotes that make me happy!

Long quote but worth the read… 

"Laugh, even when you feel too sick or too worn out or tired. Smile, even when you're trying not to cry, and the tears are blurring your vision.

 Sing, even when people stare at you and tell you your voice is crappy.
Trust, even when your heart begs you not to. Twirl, even when your mind makes no sense of what you see. Kiss, even when others are watching. 

Sleep, even when you're afraid of what the dreams might bring. Run, even when it feels like you can't run any more. And, always, remember, even when the memories pinch your heart.

 Because the pain of all your experience is what makes you the person you are now. And without your experience---you are an empty page, a blank notebook, a missing lyric. 

What makes you brave is your willingness to live through your terrible life and hold your head up high the next day. So, don't live life in fear. 

Because you are stronger now, after all the crap has happened, than you ever were back before it started."

🍕Brazilian Pizza Recipe🍕

Okay so I have a confession to make, I'm not a huge pizza FAN. I know right? But if do have to say that one of my most favorite things to make for my family and friends is my homemade pizza recipe. It's light and filling, and the toppings are yummy! 


• 4 cups of flour
• 1 cup of lukewarm water
• ¼ cup of active dry yeast
• 1/2 cup of oil
• 1 teaspoon of salt
• 1 teaspoon of sugar
• 8 oz. of pizza cheese (add more if you like a lot of cheese)
• 2 red tomatoes
• a pinch of oregano for seasoning
• Tomato sauce, that has been cooked with a little bit of seasoning 


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Heat the water, dissolve the yeast in it and add the oil,
salt and sugar.
2. Using your mixer on the lowest setting pour 3 cups of flour. Then, slowly add the
mixture to the flour, mix well until the dough starts to come off the bowl.
3. Add more flour if needed to get your dough to the right consistency.
4. Divide the dough into 4 small balls then, cover it with a kitchen towel for about 40
minutes until it rises. The longer you let the dough rest the softer it will become.
5. When the dough is ready to use, just roll it out with a rolling pin, make sure to cover
your counter with flour so it doesn’t stick.
6. I like to use a round pan for my pizzas. Roll the dough to a pan and bake in the
preheated oven for about 8 minutes.
7. Once it is out, make tiny holes by poking the pizza with a fork. This will prevent bubbles.
8. Now, add your toppings. For the sauce, just use tomato sauce you made earlier and add
cheese and top it off with the sliced tomatoes and a dash of oregano.
9. Bake for about 20 minutes at 350 until the cheese is melted.
