Summer, Solstice, Sunshine, & Strawberries

This year, the June solstice occurs on Sunday, June 20, marking the start of summer in the Northern Hemisphere*. The summer solstice— also known as the longest day of the year is also Father’s Day this year!

It's known as the "longest" day of the year because it has longest period of sunlight hours which is such a beautiful gift! How are you celebrating this weekend?

Between Memorial Day Weekend a couple of weeks ago & this Sunday's solstice, there's no doubt that summer is HERE!

So many things to celebrate about this Sunday & this season. Here are a few ways we can soak it up!

Joyful Conversations, hearty laughs & strong hugs

370 days.

We soon realized it was not the material things we missed, but the human contact. We craved for the company of others, joyful conversations, hearty laughs, and strong hugs... in the end that's what mattered most and that's what life is all about.

There was, and still is, an abundance of things I wouldn't have learned, felt, or experienced if it weren't for the pandemic; and the more I...

"Here I am... again." ~ How the Pain of Being Stuck is Actually Your Power

“Here I am… again.”

This was my (defeating) thought this past Sunday as I moved into the FIFTH place I’ve lived since arriving in MA less than 3 years ago.

The familiar lug of heavy boxes, endless bags, HUGE plastic bins, and the bits and bobbles we seem to take with us everywhere we go, even though we don’t really need them.  

There I was...again...back and forth between huffing & puffing from going up and down the stairs, the sighs of overwhelm, silently cursing as I bump an elbow or a knee on a corner; and some tears.  These tears were partly out of frustration, partly from being alone, and mostly from the pain of thinking, “Here I am, again”.

Let’s take a quick step back…   

For those of you that don’t know, I moved to MA from TX in March of 2016 to create a life that I imagined to be PERFECT!  After living in TX for 36 years at this point, this was an adventure of a lifetime…...
