Name 10 things you are grateful for

What are ten things you are grateful for? List below in the comments.
Here are mine. 
You. (Fans and Friends) That could be very cheesy, but I don't care. I am being honest. 
I absolutely love my fans because they give me wonderful feedback and I enjoy hearing what you have to say. I don't ever want to take you for granted. It is why I take the time to respond to you as much as I can. 

It's not just about your being fans, either. I consider you all my family. I love to chat with you, I love to get to know you. When I can inspire someone to change their life: I absolutely freaking love it. It makes all the stuff I've gone through worth it. When someone takes the time to message me? You better believe I will take the time to respond. Every individual I meet in this life I am grateful for. The good and the bad. Everyone has taught, and will teach, me something. And I do so love learning all about you and what makes you tick. All your wonderful opposing views are fabulous to li…

Trip, much?

Pumpkin Walnut Cookies

I always love making these cookies around the winter time, to go along with it being Christmas, and Fall, but these taste practically like doughnuts, so they'd be good year-round really. 


Pumpkin Walnut Cookies Yield: About 5 dozen


Ingredients:          Cookie: 1 cup butter, softened 2/3 firmly packed brown sugar 1/3 cup sugar 1 cup cooked pumpkin (or you can substitute canned, but make sure it's pure pumpkin, or else you'll have to omit the: pumpkin pie spice--I typically have pumpkin pie filling so it does work with that too) 1 egg 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 1/2 tsps pumpkin pie spice,or ground cinnamon 1 tsp baking powder 1 tsp baking soda 1/4 tsp salt 1 up chopped walnuts
Frosting:           (I typically leave this out and do a dusting of powdered sugar, or nothing.) 2 cups powdered sugar 1/4 cup butter, softened 1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened 1 tsp vanilla 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice, or cinnamon Walnut pieces, if desired to top (I sometimes use…

How can I return the favor?

Being a writing mentor and helping others out with the process of self-publishing, I'm often messaged for quick help. As I tell people: don't hesitate, my door is always open (email ariana@arianabrowning.com) and they're welcome to message me. I try to get back to you as quickly as possible and give you as much information as you need.

The biggest return is how they can help me since my advice is [for now] always free. I am not interested in charging hundreds of dollars for a small packet of information when I can message you really quickly and you get helped as much as I. I love to help. That is generally my return. However, my time is valuable to me so upon thinking about how many times I'm asked that, I thought I would make this post up so I could just link people to it. I need to get better at saying, "this is how you can help me." 
There are a few ways you can return the favor if you'd like to help me as well.

Depending on where you are following me…
