Hellooo Loves!

I’m trying something a little different this week. I’m using music to say all the things my words cant seem to capture. I hope you enjoy!

This one precious life I’ve been blessed with! So grateful for another day.

Poui trees are in bloom.

Some days are just a little harder than others.

My faith in God. Because there is nothing I do, can do, will ever do…without Him!

My sister. She continues to inspire me every.single.day.

I live on an island in the sun! hey hey…!

Satisfy my soul. Lazy Sunday mornings. Shared Chocolate Raspberry Truffle coffee. Good conversation and the best company I could ask for…truly satisfies my soul.

Heinrich Heine said, where words leave off, music begins. I hope that by paying attention to all the blessings in my life and by sowing the seeds of faith and gratitude through song, I can truly carry with me and reap the rewards of “positivity + balance + bliss” throughout the days ahead.

Thank you for reading/listening, I appreciate you! This is me blowing some glitter and confetti on you because you’re super blessed to have received the gift of another 86,400 seconds today, to spend any way you desire.

Make those seconds count!

I love hearing from you…what are you grateful today? If you could choose one song to describe the best moment you had today…what would that song be? Feel free to share below!

Hellooo Loves!

The sun is shining brightly in sweet T&T today! It’s also a holiday. So YAY for long weekends and even shorter work weeks. *cue Frank* Heaven! I’m in heaven!

Here’s my 7 for Seven this week:

Rest & relaxation. My long weekend plans involved church, as it was the Easter Triduum, family because my family takes every opportunity to share food and laugh together, Netflix and lots and lots of sleep. It was frankly the very best way to spend the time.

Potluck lunches. Not only is this a great way to share the load of cooking, but when done right, you can try a new dish like a spicy lentil carailli (car-rye-lee) soup or a veggie lasagna that will make you say who needs meat! I had the absolute pleasure to have shared a really delicious meal amidst great conversation with really happy people.

Affogato. Man add some alcohol infused strawberries and this is coffee all grown up and sexy.

Dinner with the sis. Because even though we speak everyday, dressing up and going out to eat and catching up over a really nice dinner is an extra special treat. Bonus: When she pays!

Seedless grapes. No explanation required!

Instagram is my favourite place to connect. FOLLOW ME there and say HI!

Instagram challenges that inspire me. Susannah Conway’s April Love project has been inspiring me for the last few days. Her month-long challenge has already generated over 5000 posts. Feel free to join in and spread some love on your timeline.

Planning vacations for the rest of the year. Long weekends are great and all but they are a reminder that more relaxation is needed. Looking forward to my next real vacation!

Cheers to lazy days! They are so few and far between that they seem like an extra special treat when they occur! I hope that by paying attention to all the blessings in my life and by sowing the seeds of faith and gratitude, I can truly carry with me and reap the rewards of “positivity + balance + bliss” throughout the days ahead.

Hello Loves!

This life we live. If it ain’t one thing…it’s certainly another. After feeling down and finally getting myself back on track, my timelines were flooded this week with way too many RIP messages.

Once again I was reminded of just how fragile life is. Each day you open your eyes and you’re still in the land of the living is a chance to start again. To own your shit (whatever it is) and live your life. Here’s to this one precious life we are blessed with and living it to the fullest.

That said, here’s my 7 for Seven this week:

Another week. Another day. Another chance. Still here. I’m grateful for the chance every day to start again.

This blog. This community. I appreciate you dear reader, more than you will ever know.

Juicing. I’m grateful once again this week for doing something good for my body.

Netflix and wine. Because adulthood.

Impromptu family barbecues. Sometimes the best experiences are the ones we don’t plan. I haven’t belly-laughed like that in a long time.

Instagram accounts that inspire me. One of my absolute favourite accounts is this one.

This song. This video. These lyrics!

And there you have it. Short and sweet. I hope that by paying attention to all the blessings in my life and by sowing the seeds of faith and gratitude, I can truly carry with me and reap the rewards of “positivity + balance + bliss” throughout the days ahead.
