Happy Valentine’s Day to YOU

Valentine’s Day… bouquets of roses, boxes of chocolates, romantic cards….. Love is in the air and happiness seems to be oozing from every place you go and everywhere you look. In reality though, any love that you will find outside of your house is not as important as making sure you have self-love and that you are taking care of yourself.

Post Holiday Blues or 2020 Bliss?

The holidays are over and it’s time to get back to work on a full-time basis.  Does anyone else in part feel a little bummed but also a little excited to get back into a routine?   I’m feeling such mixed emotions about it all. On one hand, I’ve REALLY enjoyed my time off and having my days to myself. On the other hand, part of me misses the routine of having a regular schedule, even if it is filled with work activities. In the end… it comes down to this… It’s 2020 – let’s make the most of it!!  Let’s just run wildly into it, putting the past luxuries behind us and bolding stepping into the new opportunities of 2020.  We’ve sooo got this!
