In addition to my YouTube channel of the same name, I wanted to create another space to share my thoughts, ideas, tips, discoveries, triumphs, and tribulations. I’m someone who has always savored the simple pleasures in life……like the sun shining in on my face in the morning, warm towels out of the dryer, a freshly made bed, the sound of birds chirping, hot chocolate with whipped cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg…..you get the picture (ahhh, I’m getting happy feelings just thinking about those things!). I find that I enjoy those little details far more than some of the other pleasures in life that you think would be more exciting (like buying a new car, spending a bunch of money on a shopping spree, etc.).
I first noticed my enthrallment with simple pleasures when I was reading my journal several years ago. I’ve kept a journal since I was a little girl, and it always gives me a good laugh to read my entries from years ago (things like “Mark and I are perfect for each other and I love him more than anything in this world”- Age 11). Too funny. But the most fascinating discovery is reading my own words from years ago, and it’s actually like my past self is talking to my present/future self. Although I like to think how much I’ve grown, matured, become wiser, (which I hope I have!) I’ve realized how much I’m the same person, with the same observations, worries, dreams, fears, and loves. Taking note of these common themes has helped me to really get to know myself and set myself on the right path. I’ve discovered what I’m interested in, what makes me tick, who I enjoy spending time with, and most importantly, what I value most.
So in this blog, I’ll attempt to share a bit of myself with you…..my everyday pleasures, fun memories, latest finds, beauty tips, money-saving ideas, and anything else that pops in my mind! I hope to keep it positive, interesting, informative, and maybe even a little bit funny!
I hope you enjoy a little peek into my world.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy!
