Stockings & Holiday Gifts 2017




Santa Ho Ho Ho!







Gift giving is at the forefront this holiday season along with parties, get together's, decorating, watching lights and everything jovial.  Shopping for a special someone, girlfriends or family members often is difficult after the teenage years.  More importantly, shopping can be time consuming and not always the best experience while jostling among the hoards of humanity.  Listed are a few tips for good measure.  Followed with 12 Days of Christmas presents to complete a Christmas tree, fill a stocking or a mantel.  Celebrate in-style and select quality items that are guaranteed to bring a smile to one and to all. 


Holiday Shopping Tips





  1. Shopping List: Make a list and a budget to follow.  
  2. Order Online:  For ease of use, ease of a click and ease of mind.  
  3. In-Store:  Do visit your favorite department store and experience the cheery vibe with a heavy swirl of chaos.  Perhaps grab a latte to prepare for impact. 
  4. Most Important Present Selecting Rules:
    1. What Would You Like?:  Think about what you would like to receive from others that is enjoyed by many when selecting gifts for parties, girlfriends or hostess presents.  IE:  Lip gloss, hand lotion, ornaments, candy, wine, small candles etc.  Keep the gift simple and elegant.
    2. Know Sizes of Clothing Apparel:   Know the sizes and styles of the beloved one. Often times the receiver of the gift will have to return the item.  Or perhaps they will love it.  Apparel can be tricky and it is a gamble. 
    3. Anything Small:  Small gifts are always perfect.
  5. Dress For the Holiday Experience:  Wear casual yet merry clothing for an upbeat shopping experience.  Dress to impress and embrace the festive mood.

7 Ways to Become a Butterfly

Don't Crush the Butterfly!

Well, for one all the people of the land can evolve into creative and wondrous butterflies.   It is through the journey of life that sometimes the environment, family, friends and peers willingly crush the beauty and charming essence of you  - the exotic butterfly. Don't Destroy the Wings of Flight There will always be the vengeful, the user, the hateful or a person filled with jealousy and envy that clips the wings of the butterfly.  Their insecurities reign supreme and a beautiful butterfly ready to spread it

  Lakes of Beauty Build an Oasis of Love Many are sighing with relief.  Now is the time to unite and heal the country.  Be open, be present and accept what comes. Would it not be wonderful to unite a fractured society where hate and anger were and still are at an all-time high.  Is it not time to start accepting one another, to listen to one another, and to support one another? Rather than throw stones at those with opposite thoughts or opinions.  It has been interesting and sad to witness such vitriol, destruction, and chaos this past year and hence.  Perchance rhetoric going forward will be filled with kindness for their fellow man.  One can only pray for sunshine to fill souls.  Thus, we begin again.  For now, notice the beauty around us.   The fall and winter to come are filled with peaceful moments when walking on your favorite trail.  Beauty surrounds us if we look.  The leaves, the wildlife, the rain, the lakes, the peace the small moments. Or maybe in your daily activities, you

Baby It's Cold Outside "Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience." Ralph Waldo Emerson The damp, dreary, wet and snow filled days are upon us for the upcoming months.   The change in the air is palpable along with early darkness falling across the land.   2020 has indeed been the craziest year for everyone with the horror of Covid, lockdowns and a roller coaster election.   After a nail-biting, hair-pulling, stress filled election this week with no clear resolution, it is best to remain steady and calm.   Life is indeed a wild ride with ups and downs, twists and turns.  You would not want your life to be dull, would you?  This year, more than any other year, in my lifetime, 2020 is one of complete societal pandemonium.  If someone had told me on New Year's Eve, that everyone's life in 2020 would be completely turned upside down, we would have looked at them and thought they were off their rocker.  Or maybe had imbibed a little too much.  Of course, it was

  The Bridge Thanksgiving is this week.  Celebrations might be different this year with a smaller group, yet spreading goodwill remains constant.   Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, pie and all the fixings will be set out on the table with a simple reminder.  We are thankful to live in this country.  We are thankful for our family and friends.  We are thankful for our existence.  We are thankful for our homes.   There is so much to be thankful in 2020.  Yes, there is.  Is it a tumultuous year?  Yes, absolutely one of extreme lifestyle change, tragedy for many and a shift for all to think about what is important in your own life.   What is important to you?  Is it being connected? Is it nature? Is it helping others or sharing yourself when needed?   I think this year is one of growth, challenge, perseverance, acceptance, and change.  We are crossing a bridge this season.  A bridge of hope.  A bridge of renewal.  How can we prepare to embrace this new bridge of hope?  The First Step - C
