IT’S DECEMBER

IT’S DECEMBER

It's officially December, and for the first time, I'm not panicked. What?! Instead, I'm trying to embrace the holiday season; honestly, what else have we got going on? It's perfect timing. I think most of us need something to look forward to, 2020 has been a bust, definitely, one to put behind us once and [...]

DON’T JUDGE ME

DON’T JUDGE ME

There's a classic scene from the movie Pretty Woman, Julia Roberts character Vivian, is desperate to spend a chunk of money on several new outfits for her, ahem…date. We're all familiar with the scene; Vivian's character, tartly dressed, wearing thigh-high boots a tank top and an overtly short skirt. She wanders into a posh store [...]

YOU NEVER KNOW

YOU NEVER KNOW

I am a firm believer in everything happens for a reason. Those chance meetings or invitations from an unlikely source could benefit or change your life for the better. What does this mean? Depending on your approach, be open and aware of your surroundings. I never say no; otherwise, you might miss those gifts of [...]

IT’S FALL

IT’S FALL

Here we are again. Its officially Fall, and as if someone flicked the switch, summer is sprinting towards fall, giving it a high five ("go get'em!"), you can feel the season changing.

AN ANNIVERSARY

AN ANNIVERSARY

It's September 1, which is nothing significant for most people, except that today would have been my 30th wedding anniversary.

A COVID BIRTHDAY

A COVID BIRTHDAY

I'm another year older, I know, it's inevitable, and this time it's during a pandemic! Fun! I gotta say, there are days that I appreciate the simplicity of life during these times, celebrating a birthday is no exception. I wanted to keep my birthday plans easy and stress-free, restaurants are open, but, it's just not [...]

FACING YOUR FEARS

FACING YOUR FEARS

Skydiving? Never! Rock climbing? Definitely not! Riding on the back of a motorbike? Maybe? Call me a wuss, but, these extreme activities scare the living shit out of me! There are different triggers when it comes to fear, and all of us manage them differently. So, what's a girl to do when her guy wants [...]

EARN THE SKIRT

EARN THE SKIRT

Growing up, I wasn't much of a sporty girl, (dare I say a girly, girl?) I was usually last when chosen for sports, and I definitely wasn't climbing trees, I still can't do a cartwheel, but that's probably a good thing. It's not that I didn't want to, I just never thought I was good [...]
