I had another super fun weekend full of friends, family and fun.  I can’t really remember celebrating St. Patty’s Day in the past, but this year I participated at several events here in town.  I even tried corn beef and cabbage for the first time, which was really good.  I have a special love for cabbage these days in any shape or form.  The corn beef tasted a lot like ham, but thicker and with a slightly different texture.  Overall I’m not a huge fan of Irish cuisine…however I do like to try new things when I have the opportunity.

Today I get to start a new skin care regimen for my rosacea that I am REALLY excited about.  😀  I’ve been given a topical gel as well as some low-dose antibiotics to take.  The doctor felt very confident that it would clear it up very quickly, which is a huge relief.  I have hated battling with this stupid skin condition, and while there is no cure, there are now ways to keep it at bay indefinitely.  Things like wine, exercise, hot drinks and baths (basically all of the good things in life) are mostly what trigger episodes on my face.  And there is nothing worse than having something you don’t like on the most visible part of your body.  Especially when you feel like you have little or no control over it.  Rosacea is basically a hereditary skin inflammatory condition that can appear at different times in your life.  I’ve always been a blusher, but that quickly turned into something harder to control when I turned 29 or 30.  I will keep you guys posted on how the medications work, the doctor seemed to think that it could be fixed quickly.  If it does work, then you might see me running in the streets with joy!!!

Today’s blog post title is in reference to a fortune cookie message that I got over the weekend, which you will see below.  It made me smile.
