I miss sharing  positive vibes and adventures and I have also missed keeping up with the happenings of all you beautiful bloggers. So I am back to check in before another short…

March Goals

“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. – Charles Dickens” Many exciting things are happening in March.

Which means chocolate, and those of you who are better acquainted with my blog know how much I love that stuff. Another  reason…

Welcome 2016 you Son of a Gun

So 2016 eh? I may be a bit late in sharing my opinions, hopes and plans for this coming year as I experienced an unplanned break from blogging. I had a grand holiday don’t get me wrong, I visited family, was blessed in receiving many beautiful gifts and enjoyed a new years vacation inside a vacation to a cabin far out of town with my love. All in all, it was a beautiful and relaxing vacation. Minus of course those 3 days in which all of the joy left my poor deflated heart  (being a bit dramatic) when…

Travel Barbados

Welcome to paradise! Where the water is warm, the sky is blue and where the greenery is lush with tropical beauty. Barbados!

5 Reasons you Should Start Napping

Sometimes I wish I had a cats life. Not because I am particularly interested in chasing mice, or coughing up hairballs, or because I like the taste of fish. No, it is this soft critters ability to nap that I am envious of. These furry friends are the boss when it comes to napping. And I love a good nap! I used to work with this guy who would arrive at work looking like he literally just crawled out of bed or from under a rock, poor fella. He constantly had bags under his eyes, his clothes were disheveled as…

17 Cheap Fall Date Ideas

The days are growing shorter, and the slightest winter chill is creeping through the air. I think it’s safe to say that we are in the thick of the fall season. And a rather romantic season it is.

It’s perfection, simply romantic perfection. Mushy sentiments aside, I think we can agree that fall is the Goldilocks time of the year for many activities. Not to…
