Things I have learnt

Things I have learnt

While school and university are great platforms for learning, to my mind, Life proves to be the best teacher by far.  While the former imparts theory, Life shows you… well, life.  How the everyday works.  And it is not the kind of stuff you can […]

Memory lane

Memory lane

Yesterday I read a really touching post called “Nostalgia” by Freespirit.  I was drawn to it because of the title.  I am quite sentimental (two huge containers in the garage filled with stuff I WILL still scrapbook is testimony to that!) so I thought it […]

Travel, laugh, encourage, eat

Travel, laugh, encourage, eat

I hope you like travelling, because then you will know why I have fallen in love with it.  And I could tell you about all our favourite places Hubby and I have discovered.  We haven’t travelled much internationally.  Wait, that’s not true. We have just not travelled […]

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

New beginnings
