So much is happening- and in the midst of everything- I came down with a wild case of the flu- which has pretty much knocked me flat on my back. The perk to that is catching up on all my favorite TV shows and movies- plus the extra sleep, which has found me dreaming about things from exotic vacations to learning how to play digital pianos. I had to abandon my weekend plans to nurture myself and hopefully the fever will break soon and life will resume as normal, whatever that is.

I have so much to share- watch this space.

I didn’t have much time to spend writing when we were on our trip home. Instead, I spent all of my time focused on spending time with the people I love dearly.

We had adventures on top of adventures, and a few that we didn’t even bargain for- but it made the journey even better. I didn’t have a lot of time for pause, and to think about 2015, but now that we are back home- and I’m getting back into the swing of things- I’m not only being proactive in the great things swirling around for this year, but I’m also pulling a few things together that will allow me to continue to learn and grow.

I have a couple of workshops that I’ll be attending- all in the spirit of learning, plus new potential business ventures on the horizon. I am blessed beyond words, and grateful beyond measure.

I can’t believe how long it has been since I’ve posted here. WAY too long! I would love to share some excuses as to why- but the short reality is- I’ve been busy.

I’m now ‘home sweet home’ for the holidays, and we are having a blast. We’ve shared the love of the coast with our friends from home- and enjoyed every minute of it. Now we’re playing catch-up with more family and friends- and it’s so fun spending time with everyone again.

I’m so grateful for the people in my life- those who are there and whom I can count on through thick and thin. I am so blessed, and try never to take that for granted.

Merry Christmas season to everyone who happens to darken the doors of this space. May your season be very merry and bright.

There has been so much buzzing around happening since we landed for the holiday season. We’ve had friends who have decided to move and are now looking for at prices for for homeowners insurance in burlington nc to see if that is a viable option for them in terms of moving- plus we have had several friends find out they are expecting, and yesterday we said goodbye to a beautiful lady- who touched my heart more than 30 years ago. She will be deeply missed.

We tend to get bogged up in the every day and forget just how beautiful life really is- I’m so grateful. and you should be too.

When I look at the title of this post it makes me smile. I’m grateful for everything. The pleasant and the ‘not so pleasant’ because it all serves to teach me something.

We spent some time earlier this week with Marcel’s aunt- She recently turned 80, and we were unable to make it to her party, so we decided to go spend some time with her this week. Our intent was to stay only a few hours- but it was so great, and we were having so much fun that the time flew and when I looked at my watch- four hours had passed! Needless to say- we definitely plan to go again. She’s such a joy and I adore spending time with her. I also enjoyed hearing some of her stories, plus her sharing some of her wisdom with us- at 80 one has compiled a lot of wisdom, you know?

Work has been great- my column is going great- I continue to learn and challenge myself outside of the box- and by doing so- I continue to grow- that makes me happy.

With the challenges of this year- it took a while for me to find my balance- but once I did- I haven’t looked back- I count my blessings every-single-day. Are all days perfect? Not even close- but what I do know, is that I’m blessed, WE are blessed and I don’t take one single moment of that for granted.

Helping a Friend

Our Neighbors who have a son who is a musician stopped Marcel on the street the other day asking him if he could help find some particular music related gifts that he is looking for to order for his son for Christmas. Marcel and I are much more tech savvy than this guy, so we offered to browse around and see what we could find.

The guy really encourages his son to stay with the music and doing what he loves- and has really been supportive of getting him various lessons, and now some new equipment. We’ve sent him the link to musciansfriend and he’ll take it from there. I hear he’s going to be doing a concert this Christmas season for their annual holiday party. I can’t wait to hear more details. I love seeing people following their passions.

We are on the countdown til vacation! YES!! I tend to check the flight app a couple of times a week for no other reason than to look at the countdown til ‘check-in’ and feel the joy it brings me to know that our vacation isn’t too far away. We have been making plans and looking forward to spending time with family and friends during the holiday season.

Can you tell I’m a tad bit excited?

Moving Right Along

My last post was a few weeks ago and I talked about getting back into a healthier lifestyle change, and it has made a huge difference in how I feel, not only physically, but also mentally. It has been challenging at times, because I still fight the urges to snack in the evenings, and sometimes I do have those ‘junk food’ days, but I’m moving more- and even starting to do a little running, and it feels good.

This amazing weather we’ve been having has definitely added to the incentive to get out and enjoy- so much so that I’ve let a few things go- such as writing here more often. But I’m working on finding that balance that works perfectly for me.

Today for dinner- I had some steamed broccoli, green beans, half an avocado, tomatoes from my garden (which is oh-so-good) and some grilled shrimp. It was delicious, and filling. Plus I knew that when I was finished- that even if I was not ‘stuffed’ (which I am learning all over again that I don’t ‘need’ to feel full all the time) that my body was being given what it needed nutrition wise- and I would not have that evening sluggish feeling from eating junk.

I haven’t looked at the scale, and honestly- I’m not sure if I will. It’s secondary to good health and feeling good. That’s what matters- not a number.

Best Lives

Some of you who read my site regularly- or who know me in real life know that I own a small baking business. Sharing happy moments with others and doing that through baking is one of my passions, so I decided to make it an official business. I love it- and have learned a lot along the way. In fact, I continue to learn, which is another one of the things that I love and adore.

I’m part of a cake group- and I love how people come together and not only share cake ideas, business thoughts, but also the simple things like wedding venues and wedding dj contact information for certain areas. It is so inspiring to see people co-creating and living their best lives.
