Cottage Gives Me All The Feels

Spending the weekend at the lake had me full of mixed emotions. Something about water always makes me feel calm and at peace.

Yet As I laid on the dock, I began reminiscing of all the weekends spent here over the past decade. Remembering the ones who have come and gone in our lives and shared this special place with us.

Think With Your Heart

“You’re crazy. You haven’t thought this through. Don’t make any drastic decisions. Sleep on it a bit. How could you do that? It’s so irresponsible.” These are just a few of the statements I heard on a regular basis. I think with my heart and I listen to my gut. To some, this may be […]

2017 Reflection – What a year! :)

As I sit in my new home staring out the window at the fresh falling snow as it covers the naked trees, I can’t help but smile. How did I get here? To say 2017 flew by is an understatement. I honestly have no idea where the time went! Do you?! Today, I sat down […]

Gold Coast, We Meet Again.

As I sit on the beach listening to the waves crash I find myself people watching and reminiscing. Being here five years later is a bit of an emotional roller-coaster. One I know I needed to ride in order to move forward in my life. One minute I feel a sense of joy and calmness […]

LADIES, DO YOU FEEL THE PRESSURE?

Somedays I really wonder how women go through their entire lives with the pressures of society constantly on them.

Today I was chatting with an older women who was absolutely radiant. She looked happy as could be and was truly glowing. Yet the first words out of her mouth, to my surprise were “what ever you do don’t get old” – and let me just say I CAN NOT count the amount of times I hear this statement in a week. Mind you, I do live in a ‘retirement community’ (most likely because I am an old soul and I fit in here) but it still shocks me the amount of people who make growing old and even retirement sound DAUNTING.

Lessons From The City Of Love

A lot of people have been asking why I haven’t blogged about my time in Paris and quite honestly I think there is so much to talk about that I don’t even know where to begin! It was an incredibly eye opening trip.

Most people go on vacations to get away,  I however, go to learn.  On this trip in particular, I learned so much more than I was ever expecting.
