Define and Own Your Awesome | Motivation Monday

Hi friends, and happy Monday! How was your week last week? Did you push yourself to step forward, and blossom? I have to admit, that I loved writing that post from last week and your wonderful thoughts and feedback. I know that I have written Positivity Monday posts in the past, but the warm feedback from the post last week reminded me how powerful a little Monday Motivation can be! I am hoping to bring back these posts on a weekly basis. Many times, when our to-do list seems never ending it becomes easy to go through the paces and just go right in the middle of the road. We rush through tasks just to get them done. But, I know that we all have more within ourselves. We are better than being average or just the middle of the road. In fact, each of us have the possibility of being more than just average we have the possibility to be wonderfully awesome. This week, let’s aim to give our 110% and go a bit above and beyond. To be more than average, and be freakin’ awesome. … [Read More...]

Happy Dancing on Friday

Why hello friends! How are you feeling today, at the end of this week? I have to tell you, I am doing a little hip hip happy dancing today. Why? Because this week was great-wonderful-challenging and awesome. Yee-haw! Was it perfect? Of course not. But I laughed out loud and had more moments of joy than frustration so I consider that a massive win. Earlier this week, I bought a big bouquet … [Read More...]

4 Special Places in Wales that You May Not Find in the Guide Books

One of the things that I love about living in Wales is that there seems to be so many wonderful places off the tourist path that are special and memorable. These are places that may be hidden in a guide book with only a sentance or two (or if at all), but have become some of my favorite places to spend time. With that, here are my insider places in North Wales that you simply cannot … [Read More...]

Let’s Blossom this Week

Have you ever thought about how sometimes, we sit back and wait for life to happen to us rather than making our life? I find this especially with women, who many times seem to ask for permission to step forward into the spotlight. There could be self doubt holding us back, or maybe we are afraid to seem bossy or bitchy or even undeserving. When we wait and dream of new possibilities, sometimes … [Read More...]

Grateful for Stress. Yes, Really.

Hello my sweet friends! And happy happy Friday! I have to admit, this week has flown by, and thank goodness it’s been a doozy. I’ve had fires left and right, some tricky situations and even a few unhappy clients. So, that’s always fun. And when I say fun, I mean no fun...not in slightest. This week has been challenging but has motivated me to keep a positive outlook. Even in this manic crazy … [Read More...]


3 Ways to Make a Long Distance Relationship Work

Would you believe that most of my traffic to my little blogging space is related to long distance relationships? And that most of my e-mails from readers, are from those in a LDR seeking advice? I have to admit, that fills my heart with overwhelming happiness. The idea that our love story and journey can help others in a similar scenario is inspiring. For those who don't know, our long distance … [Read More...]

When a Simple Error Message Leads to a Revelation

Last night, I was working on the blog and responding to comments when I saw the one message that bloggers cringe to see, "Error." I hit refresh (countless times) and the error message was still visible on my blog. Of course, I then begin to panic and worry. I kept thinking, "What if my blog was hacked again?" And the idea of losing this space made me sad for a moment. Because no matter how much I … [Read More...]

4 Reasons to Add Wales to Your Bucket List

I have to admit fairly embarrassing: Before I met Neal in the bar in NYC I had never even heard of Wales.  I know.  I hang my head in shame.  Primarily because this is a beautiful and inviting corner of the world, and I would recommend it to anyone looking to travel a bit off the beaten path. In the three years that I have lived in Wales it’s safe to say that my heart has been taken by this unique … [Read More...]

The Power of Intuition

I’ve been thinking lately about how powerful intuition is. The ability for our brains to tell us to turn from a dangerous situation out of self preservation. I mean, that’s where intuition comes from, the idea of moving away from harm all in order to stay alive. We all know when a moment of intuition hits us unexpectedly. That feeling in the core of yourself when you are entering a … [Read More...]


A Manic Busy but a Joy Filled Week

Hi friends! How excited are you that it is Friday? Ya'll this week has been long, and exhausting and I am ready to relax a bit. How was your week? Did it whizz by, or did it drag along? But no matter, the weekend is now here, with the summer sunshine and beach day adventures are calling my name.  Of course, pair this weekend juju with a little (or rather big) iced coffee for today's Friday … [Read More...]
