New Year - A Gift - David Yurman Style



It's a New Year, New Day - and a New Chapter!

  Yurman Style That Is!





As a another chapter of our lives begin to close, we often take time to reflect on our accomplishments, our choices, our family and friends.  Was the year fruitful? Did we experience life to the fullest?  Were there moments of great joy combined with sadness that happens in the course of a year? Hopefully, yes.   Life is filled with many twists and turns and the unexpected is always at the forefront.  When ones tries to control their own destiny, or heaven forbid others, often disappointment arrives promptly at ones door.   Why? Because you cannot control what is coming whether it is good, bad or indifferent.  You cannot control another persons life nor would you ever want too.  The journey is theirs and not yours.  If you are lonely, then join a club, a board, work or pick up a new hobby.  Many of my wonderful friends have started painting, sewing, working as hospice caretakers or are masters at entertaining groups.  The options are endless with community and connections abound. Or change your life if you are not where you want to be at this very point.  A new year is coming.   A new day and a new glorious chapter. 

On Christmas Day, we went and saw Jumanji - Welcome to the Jungle.  The movie was entertaining, funny and a great topping to a fine holiday with family.   One of the most important scenes was with Danny Devito at the end of the film.   His character was a grumpy old man in the film with a creative turn of events.  See the movie to enjoy the magical spell.   However, in this scene, he states, "Getting old can be challenging.  But really - getting old is a gift".  "Getting old is a gift a blessing."   Repeat it, "Getting old is a gift".  So don't despair if you are turning another year older.  Be thankful. Love your lines on your face and your body.  Life is simply a marvel.  It is the small things that make one happy.  It is the people you touch on a daily basis, it is how you enter the world everyday.  Do you again reach out to others? Do you connect or just talk about yourself?  Are you a participant?  We know it isn't travel, because you always have to come home.  Travel and vacations are educational, relaxing and fun.  Yet, these fine moments are not your life. They are touch-points.  Your real life is what you have built at home.  Your family, your friendships, your physical home, your life surrounding your daily existence. Many people are "runners" racing too and fro and never sitting still and taking a moment to reflect.  They seem to be not at peace.  Are you at peace?  If your life is not what you want, then why not change it?  And, if you love your life, then you are indeed blessed. Embrace and give thanks.  Another year is a beautiful gift.  Yes, getting older is a indeed magnificent.   Anticipate the best, visualize the best and grasp what is yet to come. 

While you are reflecting on your incredible journey in 2019, why not start with a little bling to represent another glorious year ahead.  David Yurman's exquisite pieces are indeed memorable.  After all, we need to spread beauty in this life.  So, sparkle brightly in the new year of 2020.

Yes, 2020 will commence shortly.  Savor, reflect, journal and give thanks for the year of 2019.   Get excited, make new goals, embrace your life and bring in 2020 like a lion.  The best is yet to come.  It is definitely a new year, a new day and a new chapter.  For those who are ill or suffering, may peace and happiness come your way.    Finally may all of us brighten our days with laughter, love, peace, many smiles, kindness and faith.  Are you ready to open your new chapter?  I am and I hope you are too.






Until The New Year 2020!  Be Kind. Be a Light. Be Thoughtful.



Cheers, Kim

Books to Read - February 2021

  Read, Read, Read "We read to know we are not alone." C.S. Lewis Do you love to read? I do.  In fact, I always have a book on deck for my pleasure.  I wake up in the morning and carry my favorite novel downstairs.  It is how I start and end my day.  I am always reading.  It is my quintessential past time.  What do I like about the novels I chose?   I enjoy historical fiction with tales about the human condition.  Or I love stories told in a new place that I have never visited. Afterwards, I want to travel there and sink into the surroundings.  If I enjoy an author, I will read ALL  his or her books.  I tend to read books where the woman is the lead character.   I enjoy the strife, angst, and messiness of the characters' lives and how they prevail with strength, wisdom and love.  The struggle reminds me of the complexity of life and the beauty all in one snapshot.   Additionally, authors who share human drama, vivid details of the landscape and scenery plus poured their h

Happy Valentines Day 2021

  Love is in the Air!!!  Or is it Snow? "Where there is love there is life." Mahatma Gandi What Does Valentine's Day Mean to You?  It is snowing hard here in the Pacific Northwest.  We have eight inches, and it is still swirling down and covering everything.  The beauty of snow changing the landscape is a sight to behold.  Ever since I was a child, I have loved the snow.  We used to play endlessly in the streets building snowmen, having snowball fights, making snow angels, sledding and creating igloos. We did not go inside until we were cold, wet, and hungry.  We were always in the elements playing with friends or family members. The days of being a child without a care in the world are indeed cherished.  Today, I love the sound of kids playing in the snow.  It is wonderous.   Of course, Valentines Day 2021 for me is a winter wonderland.  Hopefully, we will continue to have power.  It remains to be seen.  Mother nature moves at its own pace and can never be accurately pr

Winter Fashion 2021

  The Chilly Artic "Good clothing is a passport to happiness." Yves Saint Laurent Yves St. Laurent Fashion Exhibit - Seattle Art Museum (2016) The winter of 2021 has been brutally cold across the country.  One for the ages. With snowstorms, bitter winds and ice, the frigid temperatures have seeped into everyone's bones.  Even places slated to be warm in February tend to be on the cooler side of the temperature gage.  Though, I must note that temps are slowly getting warmer in the sun infused states.  Beyond the weather, nerves remain flared as people struggle to get the vaccine, keep safe and bundled up all in one sweep.  The stress is at an all-time high.  It seems to me; we need to sit back and figure out how to be helpful to one another.  To be positive and appreciative for family and friends during these trying moments. We are closer to having everyone vaccinated and getting back to a semi-normal life.  In the meantime, we must be patient and diligent awhile longer. 

Pops of Color

  Spring is Coming Pixabay Photo - No Attribution Required "Colors are the smiles of nature." Leigh Hunt I think the time has come to sport bright colors and launch ourselves into Spring 2021.  Images of orange, pink, red, yellow and lime greens come to mind.  March is around the corner and soon the flowers will begin to open, blue skies may appear, and a fresh new world is about to burst forth.  I also get the strong sense that people are beginning to feel confident and resuming some of their favorite activities.  For instance, where I play tennis masked, several of my friends have recently come back.  Seeing their twinkling eyes and masked faces brings joy to my heart.
