"When Grass Pierces Concrete" has always been a favorite image of mine. I believe life is created in breaking barriers & conquering obstacles & following your gut, no matter what. I'm a goofy girl who gets to live life with amazing people, loves to reminisce and loves to write. This is my journey. Cheers!

7th September 2010



I went through a while back and put every post prior to this one on “private” so only I can see it.  It was very emotional for me going back and reading what all I had written while being in London and after - these were the best and worst of times.  That chapter has far closed and I took a very long blogging break.  I go through phases where I wished I blogged & then I get tired of it and then I begin again.

My time in London was nothing short of trying and amazing and I’m very thankful for my time there, but my life has moved on quite a bit since 2008, as life does. It’s very different than I would’ve guessed it would be when I was there.  I learned so much in those 6 short months - many lessons I will take with me forever.  I created a bond that I will always cherish with a couple of people whom I adore and respect and love deeply. 

With that being said, I’m at a really great place in life. I have so much to be thankful for.  I have an amazing family, fun & loyal friends and I’m pretty sure with those 2 things, nothing else matters.  I believe that more often than not, it’s not where you are but who you’re with…and I’ve been blessed to go through life with these people, while getting to go to some super fun places as well. I could not be more grateful and more in love with those who are in my life and walk beside me on this amazing adventure.

Cheers to life, love & friendship. These are my fortress.
