Five Places I Want To Visit

1.  Amsterdam, The Netherlands: I watch HGTV on a regular, especially International House Hunters! On television Amsterdam appear to be a quaint area with a deep history. When I do get the chance to visit Amsterdam, I would love to stay on the canal and near the heart of town. I want to explore the town by foot or bicycle and be close to local shops and eateries. A few places on my radar to visit is the House of Anne Frank, The Purse and Bag Museum, and one of the several Art & History Museums.

2. Tuscany, Italy: After watching “Under The Tuscany Sun” I have Continue reading “Five Places I Want To Visit”

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! Waving goodbye to 2017 and saying HELLO to 2018! At the beginning of each year several people go into the ” New Year, New Me” phase. For me, in 2018 I am pushing myself to follow through with my goals and dreams, become financially stable, and handle my mental and emotional stress in a different way.

2017 was a year of me going through hardship, understanding, self-love, and knowing when enough is enough. I struggled with staying on top of my finances and not really planning things out. I struggled with understanding what was for me and what was not for me which pushed me into “self-love” mode. Enough is enough Continue reading “Happy New Year!”

Lets Talk About Sex

Talking about sex is completely healthy! Discussing it with your partner should not be a taboo subject. We listen at it on the radio, we see it in films/TV shows, and see advertisement about it on a day to day bases.

Without communication you won’t know what your partner is into and you may be holding back Continue reading “Lets Talk About Sex”

My Calm Place

No matter where I am in the world if there is a beach I will be there. The beach is my favorite place to visit. It’s my calm place and where I go when I need to be a lone. The sound of the waves soothes me and the breeze from the waves makes me feel rejuvenated.

There is something about looking out into the ocean and listening to the waves that makes me feel everything will be okay. I can spend hours on the beach without realizing the amount of time passing by because I become at ease. On January 13th I was stressed and missing home, so I drove to North Myrtle Beach, SC and spent three hours on the beach without realizing it. Living close by the beach is something I miss so I take advantage of every opportunity I receive.
