It's so easy to lose yourself in this crazy, busy world. My life since we moved to Gibsons has been amazing! So many great things happening, people visiting, stores opening:) And then, yesterday, I stopped for an hour. I went for a reiki treatment which I've never had before. It was very comforting and relaxing. She said, you can fall asleep if you want and I thought, thanks, but I want to stay awake and enjoy every moment. Ha! I must have fallen asleep at least 20 times throughout the treatment. It was such a special, sacred and safe space to just be in the moment and relax. It's all about energy and healing. I realized that I haven't taken the time to just be in this place - take the time to just be quiet and still in the world. My George is away for a few days and I thought I'd get so much done but all I want to do (outside of work) is be quiet, lay in my bed, listen to the froggies and rain outside my window and rest. I guess it was time! I hope you're having a fantastic Friday!
I'm not the greatest public speaker and mostly because I'm a crier. I can't even think about speaking in public and I get all welled up. Imagine having to speak/toast one of your best friends in front of all the people that she loves and cares about. Not easy but - I was so honored to be asked. Not just to speak but to be a big part of such an important day in Barbie's life. As I hope I mentioned in my speach, Barb has that ability to surround herself with love. She's incredibly patient, kind and supportive. The feeling of warmth and love generating from the group of people surrounding her on her wedding day touched my heart - and I know it touched hers. It was their turn to give back to someone who has been there - with a kind ear, solid shoulder and warm hugs. Oh, and did I mention it was also her birthday? To Barbie!

People's stories fascinate me - I love to be inspired and challenged. I also love the smell of fresh sheets, newly mown grass, and campfires. I love the sand between my toes and the sun on my back. Travel is in my blood and I love learning about new cultures around this beautiful world!
