This feels like the longest winter EVER!

I just want to close myself off from the world in my warm cozy house and live in an oversized sweater and fuzzy socks.

But no…

The best thing to do to get rid of the winter blues is get out there and soak up some vitamin D.

How about a snowball fight?

“Do you wanna build a snowman?” (Yes, I went there)

Tubing, tobogganing, skating, skiing or snowboarding?

Whew! Now a cup of hot cocoa to reward all that effort.

Take that Winter!


New Start

Here we are already at the end of the 2nd week of the year…

How has your new year been so far?

Have you descended into that winter depression?

Are you still shell-shocked from all of those holiday celebrations?

Are you a resolution maker or breaker?

Have you set a plan for yourself for 2019?

Are there any travel plans in your very near future?

Be sure to repair any ‘damage’ your gift shopping may have inflicted on your credit cards…if you haven’t already.

Then start planning…start saving…and take that vacation.

Happy 2019!

Happy New Year to all of you!

Where will you go this year? What things will you do?

How will you change your daily routine in order to make time for yourself and your loved ones?

Whether you travel to another city, country or continent…or simply to the coffee shop down the street…be sure to make time for the more important things this year. Find many moments of solitude, meditation and relaxation. Don’t allow the everyday routines of life rob you of your opportunities to getaway.

Happy Holidays!

Last minute shopping…

Wondering if you’ve covered everything…

Sweating over every detail…

It’s ok to take a quick getaway…even if that means locking yourself in your bedroom for a few minutes.

Maybe go for a walk or do some deep breathing and meditation

Just don’t become bogged down in so much detail that you forget to enjoy the season.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Winter Blues

Anybody feeling the winter blues yet?

Collins English Dictionary defines the ‘winter blues’ as “a feeling of depression or deep unhappiness associated with experiencing the cold and darkness of winter”.

It’s still early days in the season but those gray skies can really affect one’s mood.

“Laughter is sunshine, it chases winter from the human face.”

Victor Hugo

There’s a lot of advice out there on how to beat the ‘winter blues’. They include exercise, eating smarter and getting outside…

I’m just going to finish this glass of wine and take a quick nap. Then I’ll get right on that.

Now What…?

What if…

There was a terrible glitch somewhere in the technology universe and all social media formats were inaccessible for ONE WEEK (yes, I know…the horror).

What is the one thing that you have always wanted to do (or perhaps complete) that you can NEVER seem to find the time for?


Happy Thanksgiving to all of you that celebrate in November.

I know you’ll be taking some time to remember all the things to be grateful for.

Don’t forget to carve out some time for yourself amongst all of the preparations and entertaining.

Try to get away from the chaos that holidays can sometimes bring to your life…if even for only a few minutes. Just to catch your breath.

Take care!

This Weekend Getaway

Forecast for today is gray and dreary with a chance of snow…

I’m thinking…warm pjs and fuzzy socks. Netflix for the kids and a good book for me. Take out for dinner or maybe tacos. The fireplace on and a cozy throw.

That should do it.

See you guys next week!
