“Let Go”

I remember the first time I heard this song 13 years ago. The movie was Garden State. The song, Let Go by Frou Frou. I was immediately in love with the lyrics. Sometimes in life, you just need to…  LET GO And jump in Oh well whatcha waiting for It’s all right ‘Cause there’s beauty…

Keep moving forward

  I was going through my photos early Monday morning and found this one (featured photo). I stopped to take the time to reflect on the moment I took it. I remember how I felt standing in the gardens of the Palace of Versailles. I remember stopping, watching my #LittleLove peaking through the tall walled garden surrounding us….

A Day of Remembrance

“Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.” The true meaning of Memorial Day is…

Midsummer Night’s Backyard Party

About last night… I am a sucker for all things themed parties and I must say, it is great to have neighborhood friends that love it as much as I do. We have an Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Party, two Halloween parties and themed potluck dinner nights. To date, we have had Asian, Italian, Polish, and…

“Across the pond” feels so close today.

Video: TIME IS PRECIOUS!

Why wait? I came across this video on my Facebook feed today.  While many will say: Well, I can’t live out my passions or do things I enjoy, because I must work and I don’t have the money. I have children. I have responsibilities. Yes, I DO understand that. I am there with you. Trust me! But you can…

Easy Like a Sunday Morning (Series 3) Peace be with you.

Happy Sunday! As I sit here enjoying my morning coffee, listening to the rain, waiting for my favorite TV show (CBS Sunday Morning), I take the time to reflect on my week. While it was not a perfect week, I can say that I am feeling certain a sense of PEACE. I am learning to cut out…

A lesson from my #LittleLove’s Taekwondo class – HONESTY.

“Treat those who are good with goodness, and also treat those who are not good with goodness. Thus goodness is attained. Be honest to those who are honest, and be also honest to those who are not honest. Thus honesty is attained.”    Lao Tzu I was sitting at my daughter’s taekwondo class this week….

Reminder: Take care of yourself!

You can’t pour from an empty cup, take care of yourself first. Take a step back. REFLECT on what you are truly spending all of your time on. I am at a point in my life where my house doesn’t have to be spotless every night before I go to bed…and it’s not! The days of stressing…

Collect Moments, Not Things.

Happy Friday everyone! I am packing our suitcase for a short (budget friendly) weekend adventure with my #LittleLove. I have snacks ready for the car and Harry Potter Book 4 on audible…Yes, Potter nerds here! It’s Mother’s Day weekend and I have had some time to reflect this week as I planned our little adventure.  I’m…

Spend more time BEING. Not DOING.

I absolutely LOVE this video.   Relax. Breathe. Let go. Life is short, choose happiness. Be kind to yourself. Video courtesy of Find Your Sanctuary. Fuel The Soul Anna

Be Obsessively Grateful

Last night we had a sleepover. My beautiful #LittleLove and our mutt #LittleCharles camped out on my bed last night. But as I lay there last night with my beautiful little one holding my hand while she slept, I couldn’t help but REFLECT on a great day, but beyond that…my BLESSINGS. So today, I am OBSESSIVELY GRATEFUL. I…
