Wheels are turning...

So my Travel blog/website has finally gotten off the ground! Definitely a work in progress but I am happy with the rate at which it is going. I think sometimes I can really visualize a project but putting it from my visual in my head to the page is sometimes difficult for me.

So just in case it interests you, check it out:


It's on a free server for the time being but hopefully with time I can secure a similar domain and get it up and running on it's own account. For now, I'll tinker for free and see where it might go.

Life's Journey

Sometimes the plans in life I’ve made don’t always work out the way I think they will. This can be frustrating at times but with a little faith, I’ve learned to believe that all things happen for a reason.

I want to believe that I can do anything. I want to write, I want to dream, I want to travel to distant places…

I wish I knew where to start.
I wish I knew the path that will fulfill my destiny…

Snuck up on me...

So it seems this year that Christmas has really come quickly... At one point, I thought I was on my way to putting my Christmas shopping list to bed early as I started early, but with less than a week to go, I still have a few people left on my list to shop for...

My mom came into town to put up the tree and decorate with us on December 4th, but it just hasn't felt like Christmas with all the warm weather and no snow. Work has been so hectic and I was under the weather for a week with the flu, so it just seems like everything lately has been a whirlwind of catch up. I took my niece to a Christmas party at the beginning of the month that included a trip to sit on Santa's knee for her to wish for her *big* present which we then had to hunt for to make sure 'Santa's elves' would be able to deliver on.

I sent out my first batch of Christmas cards last week for those on my list who I knew where their addresses were, but for those who moved around, I've just finished them tonight to be posted tomorrow. I know a few will only arrive after Christmas, but I really do believe it is the thought that counts!

Ah well, hopefully a glass of eggnog, some favorite Carols, and a 4 year old will be able to put me more into the Christmas spirit.

Happy holidays, dear friends near and far, may peace be with you for 2007!

Shaking the dust off the bottle...

So I'm home sick today, but in trying to rest I decided to do some surfing which brought me back to my blogspot pages. It's been almost a year since I've posted - I use my livejournal a bit more than anything else, especially after deciding to pay for it; but I've always liked this website as well, and since I've done some editing of my page today, I think I'll try and update this one on a regular basis as well.

Happy New Year... 2006!

So it's been way too long a time since I posted. Hopefully with the new year, I will be able to update more often.

I am currently enjoying my new job I started in November. I'm working for a travel website, where once I've completed my first six months I will have all the perks of a travel counsellor. I can't wait to travel and am having a hard time to figure out where I might go.

I've started a paper journal that I plan to write in every day for 2006. It should be an interesting experience. I am hoping it will allow me to be more creative.

Well although much time has passed since I've posted, and I do have much to say; I'm working 12 hours tomorrow so I can't stay as I have miles to go before I sleep.

Here's the cover of the new journal I made to doodle my thoughts over the next year...


peace, love & happiness for the new year!

Heroes are few and far in between...

So thank you Terry Fox.

For giving so freely of yourself to pave the way for Cancer Research.

Maybe one day soon, we'll find a cure.

Will that be thanks enough for a Canadian with a powerful dream and the drive to bring his vision to life ?

Time flies when you are having fun...

It's been so long since I last posted...

Life's been busy, but good.

Last time I updated I was turning 30. Well it's been a few months now, and admitting to my age still seems to be a challenge, but I've grown comfortable in knowing of how much I have accomplished already in my life. I guess I'm just waiting for the next chapter, so I can see what the future may hold.

A friend of mine of many years is getting married tomorrow. I wish her every happiness in life and love. They will be honeymooning on a cruise through the Mediterranean, but they fly to London for 2 days and then leave from the port in Dover. My thoughts have not only been on the happy couple's beautiful day; but on the terrorism that has been happening in London. I pray my friend and her husband-to-be stay safe and enjoy every moment of their holiday to celebrate their marriage.

As for the rest of things, well as usual life is hectic, full of responsibilities and cherished moments. Sean & I celebrated our 2 yr anniversary in our relationship in May and things seem to be going well. I can hardly believe it will be a year in September that we've lived together.

Well I'll try to write a bit more often and update a lil more soon. I just hadn't really felt like writing but I think that spell is over with...

peace & love.
