Packing, packing, packing …. Relieved that we have downsized so much, we’re finding it difficult to fill boxes we’ve started. So far I have about four bags to donate and about 30 books too!
The past few days have been a mixture of packing, peace, harmony, arguing, and rubbing one another’s thorns. Like riding a roller coaster that runs through a zen garden, a fun house, a garden of love, and a mad house. Whew! xoxoxoxo
When it comes down to it, there’s not a whole lot that is essential. I am incredibly grateful that I have learned how to release the need to have and keep things.
I have a shadow box with a beach scene with a lighthouse and small cabin. I have kept if for years and years as a reminder that I want to experience that some day. I took it off the bathroom wall and put it in a box.
Two days later, I decided that I was done looking at this representation of what I want to experience and am ready to pass it on. I think it’s more likely I’ll experience the real thing without it … And, it’s truly okay if I never experience it.

There are those times when you think you have nothing to celebrate. Those are the times to celebrate.
Gluten free, vegan s’mores … Here’s to Life. We are loved. We are breathing. We can see, hear, walk, and talk. We can dance …. and we can celebrate with s’mores. Towanda!!! xoxoxo

What an amazing accidental photo. Well, kind of accidental. Lillian and I had a quick swim this morning. I glanced at my phone on the table and this caught my eye. xoxoxo
