joyieux noel…almost

Oh it’s almost Christmas…can you feel it? Do you have a fire roaring in your fireplace? I hope so. This year has had so many good things and so many, let’s say “interesting”, things happen. Life lessons a plenty – all for growth, all for good…

And now as we are so close to Christmas Eve, I’m feeling sentimental, nostalgic and very lovey dovey for family, friends and the world in general. My family is in Washington this year by the sea. I’m guessing they’re watching the Seahawks game (Go Seattle, Go!), drinking some delicious wine and snacking on a plethora of cheese, crackers and salami. I ♥ you guys.

Here is a collection of images from Pinterest that are warm, beautiful and festively reflect the beautiful winter white coastal version of Christmas.

If you please, travel safe, give people the benefit of the doubt, be patient, be kind and overly generous with compliments, hugs and affection. And happy happy Christmas Eve Eve. xxoo

It's Just the Beginning!

It’s Just the Beginning!

Sometimes others can put things into words way better than you ever could. In the case of the “end of the world”, my friend Neily posted this explanation this morning. I don’t know the original source of the text or the artwork, but both are beautiful. Neily, if it is you, you’re even more talented than I thought!!! 😉 If it’s not and you know, let me know so I can give proper credit. And three cheers, for the beginning of a more heart-centered belief system kicking into to gear…♥♥♥

“According to the Maya, the December 21, 2012 Sunrise marks the first time in 26,000 years that our Sun, on its ecliptic path, will be in conjunction with the intersection of the Milky Way at the Galactic Center. This alignment forms a cosmic cross, and is considered by the Maya to be an embodiment of the Tree of Life, a sacred tree that is remembered globally in all spiritual traditions.

2012’s Winter Solstice alludes to a time when we have the power to regenerate ourselves and the world from unrest and chaos through discipline and hard work, while we learn to look at situations realistically, release our fears and dogmatic attitudes, and move toward new opportunities. This reflects the Mayan prophecy of a time for awakening and moving into a higher state of consciousness. Be open and more ♥ centered.”

Time for Mexico Yet?

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…This morning it was 33 degrees and for San Diego it may as well have snowed 3 ft! And as excited as I am for a long weekend and Christmas, I can’t help but fast forward to New Year’s and a warm tropical umbrella drink vacation…So here’s to Sayulita and some of my favorite places that I will be seeing again really soon. ♥
