Happy New Year!

Only 6 days past due, but I still wanted to take the time to thank you all for reading along and following my blog. I appreciate all of the love and support from my friends and followers.

It’s 2017! Happy New Year Y’all!

My wish for each of you is to find whatever it is that you need in this new year. Whether it is love, hope, faith, patience, courage, understanding, peace, comfort, health, happiness, strength, or freedom – find it! Go out into the world and make it your oyster. Create the life that you intend with an open mind and open heart to receive all the blessings you deserve.

I’ve given you all an inkling of what is to come on my blog. When I decided to start blogging, I was still married, my marriage was struggling but I did my best to stay positive and keep it together. I never imagined my marriage would end in divorce, and when it did, I decided that regardless of my circumstance, I still had a story to tell about love, marriage and adventure.

Love, for me is still a beautiful thing. I am not scared of it and I have not given up on it because my heart is still filled with it. Love surrounds me everyday. It is in all the smiles, the sweet and kind gestures, from family, friends, or even strangers. It is the one thing we all believe in or want in our lives.  However, it is also the one thing that not many of us know how to receive or give. The world around us has misconstrued the idea and meaning of what true love is. After my divorce, I learned that love is many wonderful and beautiful things, but it all starts with yourself.

Moving forward, I want to share more with you about my healing journey and of course, still fill you in on all the good, the bad, and the ugly of my short-lived marriage leading to my divorce. I hope you have enjoyed my blog posts thus far and that you continue to follow along. My hope is to encourage you, make you laugh, remind you of your beauty and strength, and ultimately inspire you.

May the new year bring forth all that you are hoping for and dreaming of. Cheers friends, stay warm! XO

Be patient dear friends, my blog is launching soon! In the meantime, enjoy one of my favorite love poems.

“If You Forget Me”
By Pablo Neruda


I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists:
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats that sail
toward those isles of yours that wait for me.

Well, now,
if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you little by little.

If suddenly
you forget me
do not look for me,
for I shall already have forgotten you.

If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners
that passes through my life,
and you decide
to leave me at the shore
of the heart where I have roots,
remember
that on that day,
at that hour,
I shall lift my arms
and my roots will set off
to seek another land.

But
if each day,
each hour,
you feel that you are destined for me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower
climbs up to your lips to seek me,
ah my love, ah my own,
in me all that fire is repeated,
in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live it will be in your arms
without leaving mine.
