Every Dog On The Street

Baby, every dog on the street

knows that we're in love with defeat.

Especially when the streets are waterways ;)

Slow Down

Sometimes the Universe has cleaver ways to tell you to slow down.

If you don't slow down, you won't see the love that is right in front of you all along.

Travel Plans on Hold

So very bummed.  We had a trip planned to Argenita for 9 days then on to Machu Pichu, Peru.  This whole CDC ordeal with Ebola has had our travel plans hostage.  Just not knowing enough about proper precautions, regulated standards and protocol.

Visiting friends in Argentina would have been so much fun.  Marissa's family has a cattle ranch that we would have "worked" on.

And Machu Pichu is just one thing you should see in your life.  My boy's father has been and he wanted us to experience this magical place.

Well, on a positive note, the medical professionals will get a handle on this.  Scientists will find a cure and we will be free to travel again :)
Be kind to the people in your world.

So Very Grateful

As we are at the anniversary to Stand Up To Cancer, I am so very grateful for what I have and love.  I was devastated to say the least, to hear the news of Robin Williams death.  What a specially gifted person.  Who had such a huge heart to give to others.  I know more unheard stories will come out about his generosity.  (I know of five unbelievable acts of unselfishness)

I'm never sure about the purpose of such a soul's death is, when it comes to the Universe.  He really had so much more to give, even with his recent diagnosis.

I am a huge supporter for Stand Up To Cancer.  So very happy to do what I can, being a survivor and knowing so many people that have been changed by Cancer.

I am also grateful for the small things.

The Shaun The Sheep DVD's we thought we lost in our travels to London for the 4th of July.  They were left at the flat in London.  We really thought they were in a car to the airport, or on the plane.
(I almost replace them).  Very special to my little man.  He and his father have a special interest in Shaun The Sheep.  Kind of a guilty pleasure :)

Just one of those things between him and his Dah.

BTW...they are hilarious.

Writer's Block

Back to the states, after the Forth of July.
Here to contemplate the future.  Have I had enough of relationship shenanigans and chaos?
Yes, I have.
I'll just stick to myself, my life.
Focus on my son and our place.
Sorry to hear about the writer's block, but that is of your own doing.
This might help:

Or not...

All I know to be true is:
I AM your favorite hello, and your hardest goodbye.
Peace Y'all

Fourth of July Abroad

Never thought of ever spending the Fourth of July in another country.  But this year our travel plans sent us to England.  Let's just say I did not speak much on this day.  Acquaintances that knew of our country of origin would point out that I was away for our countries birth anniversary.  Just kind of awkward.  Will not repeat next year.
Don't get me wrong, I loved London.  And people were great.  I just got a little homesick for our country.
So glad to be back!

Love & Intention In Everything

Really interesting blog that speaks about putting the love and intention in every action.  Not just going through the motions of everyday life.  For example, wishing the toll booth operators a great day with intention. Wishing a stray dog or a motorcyclist that does not have a helmet on, a safe return to home.  Just those little things we should be turning into "authentic moments".

Great reminder!

So fun to be back in ATX

Here with friends at SXSW and love coming home :)
It's a little cold for my liking, but that's why we have a nice outdoor fireplace.

Great to be with friends, even if it's for a short visit.

Ahhh, The Holidays!


Spending my birthday in Dublin.
And doing some Busking :)

And then traveling to Thailand and visiting with the Golden Horse Monastery in Wat Maa Tong.

 Staying a couple days after that at Four Seasons Chiang Mai. 
So happy and grateful to have this experience.  But it's peaceful being at home :)
