cha, cha, changes....


This photo reminded me of my Sunday School classes at church when we'd sing this song - "if you're happy and you know it, then your face will surely show it, if you're happy and you know it clap your hands"  That was always a fun song to sing. Fun memories!

This new year, 2012 - I am concentrating on focus and simplicity.
I am the world's biggest procrastinator, so I really want to focus more this year on everything in my life and simplify. Which gets me to my "new look" here - I am looking for calm in my life and this says calm, focus and simplicity to me - don't ya think? I would like to thank Caroline from Constantly Evolving for helping me to come up with an idea and implementing it - she was wonderful to work with and I truly appreciate all of her help!  The beautiful photos on my header are all hers, I love them!

I am on Day 3 of Detox and I'm not gonna lie, I had a big headache and a quesy tummy - but I am pretty sure I am supposed
to be feeling that.  Today I feel much better.  What I have learned from this so far about myself is: it's not so much that I am hungry, as I'm not - I am getting plenty of nourishment with all of the juices, it's more a mental need to put something in my mouth and chew it.  Even though it's only been a few days, it's been very eye opening to me!

This week, my girlfriend and I are going to see a fun show at Pepperdine University in Malibu, which overlooks the ocean - so beautiful!  It's called Forbidden Broadway and I am truly looking forward to it!  Sally and I usually go to a play once a month, but it's been probably 3 since we went.  This is much needed!

  I am enjoying a bit of rain we are having today - it feels so refreshing!  I get to wear my boots and scarves finally!

Have a beautiful week!
xxoo

I like your new design! It has a soothing quality to it.

When I was 14, I went to camp in Malibu - in the canyon behind Pepperdine. It's was called Cottontail Ranch (sounds like a brothel, I know). I wonder if it's still there?

Have a great time at the play. I hope you are feeling better on your fast. I hear you suddenly become very energetic a few days into a fast. Keep us posted!
