The 12 days of Christmas

I wrote a review of my favorite book, which turned out to be a not so humble brag. I have to admit that Simple Abundance, A daybook of Comfort and Joy, had a very profound affect on me and I just wanted to give Sarah Ban Breathnach a huge shout out, because her book changed my life.

You can find all Goodread book reviews on my website by clicking here.

Unfortunately, I am going to have to postpone the publication date of Electric, The Finale, Book 6 until February 1st, due to  conflicting schedules, and some extraordinary events that have made it impossible to publish by, January 1st.

I will however, publish another free chapter of Electric, The Finale, Book 6, on January 1st, to keep you going until the book comes out.

In our harried lives, it is important to slow down with intention and notice everything around us. In creating a ceremony of the simplest things in life, we can gain a greater appreciation for the every day things around us.

Recently I went on a garden walk in Geneva, Illinois and I thought I would share my experience with you here. Continue reading A Japanese Tea Garden

Happy New Year! Resolve…

As the New Year approaches we all make resolutions. I thought I would share mine here with you. Think about the things you want to change in your life. Think of ways to make it better, so that you are more productive, organized and at peace with yourself in the coming year.

Write a letter to yourself that entails all your hopes and dreams for the coming year as if they already happened. Seal the envelope and pack it away with the holiday decorations to be opened next year. If you don’t have decorations to pack, then put it somewhere, where you will remember to find it next year so you can open it up and read it. I hope all you hopes and dreams come true in the following year!

Resolve: Continue reading Happy New Year! Resolve…
