A Shift of Seasons

I love this time of year. Not just because it’s full of family, fun and laughter, but because the seasons shift ever so slightly, blending orange afternoons with gray days, crisp indigo evenings into cyan shaded mornings. California does have seasons, and they’re beautiful. As I type this, the golden sun sets behind my back, and in 15 minutes all that will remain is a lingering tangerine glow.

There has been so much going on in this world I haven’t felt like blogging. The usual topics (celebrity, friendship, fashion, marriage) all seem so trivial in light of recent events. I just don’t FEEL it, if you know what I mean. With that being said, I’m officially taking a blogging hiatus until the new year. See you in 2015!!! Be blessed :)

Tourist Tales: Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum

photo 5The best part about living near a major city is enjoying all of the enticing arts, culture and entertainment events. As the seasons change, one thing remains: there’s always something new to do. I grew up outside of San Francisco and spent four glorious years calling the fog city home. Yet and still, there’s so many places I’ve never visited. Much like my fellow New Yorkers and Chicagoans, we city people tend to avoid tourist traps like the plague. We’d rather traipse across town than be stuck in the throes of tourists downtown. Continue reading

October Writing Challenge: Day 31

The word of the day is

Complete

Finally! My writing challenge has come to a close. Though I missed some days, I learned a lot by challenging myself. Writing isn’t easy, but making it a habit has allowed me to be more expressive. The word of the day also allowed me a perspective I previously didn’t make time for.

Another task I’ve completed? Learning a new program at work. I set a short term goal for myself and completed it. I’m proud of me, because the program has a steep learning curve, but with Lynda.com tutorials, Youtube vids, and Google, I did it. Now, my long term goal is to MASTER the program. I can and will do it!

Have a Happy (and safe) Halloween!
