As I wrapped up a less than stellar week, I was compelled to sit back and bathe in simplicity. I longed for nothing more than to soak in its peace and quiet, allowing the stress of life to dissipate – if only for a short time.
Ah, the joys of adulting when we find ourselves nostalgic, recalling the years when we wanted nothing more than to grow-up, not fully grasping the breadth of responsibility that comes along with that.

Ah, the magic of New Year’s Eve, a day and night filled with hope, dreams, and good intentions. We make the time to look back, reflecting upon the past year and measure what went right, and what went wrong. We commit to ceasing our ‘bad’ habits on January 1st, then find ourselves sickened from the leftover Christmas cookies and candy by end of day, disgusted by our ‘lack’ of willpower. ￼ Continue reading “And just like that – it’s 2023!”
