Celebrate Friendship

You ever have those moments when you connect with a great friend at just the right moment in your life?

I had one of those this past week.  One of my dear friends and I got to share stories, memories and laughs as well as encourage each other to enhance our lives in some way.  We talked for the better part of an hour and I had a smile on my face that lasted after the call.  Over the next couple of days I connected with 4 of my best friends and I experienced healing, joy, gratitude, love and peace from those simple yet profound conversations.

That is the beauty of friendship.

I am so thankful for the deep, meaningful friendships that I have in my life.  Their love reminds me that God and the universe truly loves me and is moving things in a positive flow to aid me in my intentions to create the life I desire.

I encourage you to reflect on your relationships this moment.  Is there someone who stands out as being a truly amazing, supportive and loving friend at all times? If so, I encourage you to take a moment right NOW to pick up the phone and call them and tell them what they mean to you (texts and emails are nice, too-but a call is so much more powerful because we can hear each other’s voice and feel the energy and emotion there).

I appreciate your presence on this site right now and I hope that reading these words will remind you of the beauty, light and power that lives in you.

I am Thankful for My Life

I woke up this morning to another beautiful, sunny day and realized what a gift it is to be alive one more day!


I am so thankful to live in a country that honors being thankful with a whole day to reflect on the abundance of blessings that is bestowed upon each one of us.  I feel especially blessed on this day to be able to enjoy some time off of work with my boyfriend who has 3 whole days off from law school!! 😀

My day was not “traditional” by any means, but it was perfect to me: waking up slowly and relaxing in bed, working out at our local Y in preparation of Thanksgiving dinner-at Denny’s! 🙂 It was yummy and it was super fun to go into San Diego and take in the sights of Ocean Beach.

On the way home we caught some beautiful views on our scenic route.  Now we’re relaxing after doing some cleaning, cooking and baking-it’s gluten free brownie time! All in all, it has been a very simple yet perfect and joyful day.  I’m so thankful for the gift of choosing to do what I desire and the means with which to do so.  Right now that choice is to enjoy a gin & tonic and snuggle up to watch a movie.  I hope that everyone’s day was this good and that the week only gets better from here!
