about me

My photo
Married to Nick for 13 years, with 2 children; Sabrina - 12 and Dominic - 11. I am a girlfriend through and through in that I love girly things and anything that celebrates the essence of being a woman. I love vintage, shabby chic, the country and try my best to do my bit for the environment. SO yes...we have 3 bins in our house and try our best to recycle! I believe that with everything in life, the closer we stick to nature, the better off we'll be. I would love to have a balance in life, but have learnt that balance is not always possible, so strive for significance instead, in the hopes that that will be just as meaningful, and the rest will hopefully follow.

I don't know what it is about Thursdays....I LOVE THEM...maybe it's the promise of Friday that does it:-)..and that I'm always so productive because of it....yeah...that's it!

But I love Wednesdays too!!!!!!...Coffee Club is the HIGHLIGHT of my week - in the weekday sense. We share, we commiserate, we plan, we brainstorm, we inspire, we get creative, we get active, we laugh - A LOT....we TALK! (way too loudly - LOL!!)....we get crazy, we welcome new people who need a place to go and people to meet - yesterday we welcomed June...how funny is that!?!...LOL...not as in the month of June...which would actually have made sense - OBVIOUSLY, but as in a lovely person called June who is new to our area.... . It's a happy, happy space and we LOVE..... ooh-ooh-AND we drink a loooootaaa latte's and cappuccino's-obviously!!

Victoria Moran says you must always find time to razzle dazzle...well that's our razzle dazzle time...we get dressed PURTY, and we get to enjoy some awesome company and share the bliss and the joy of being ...just us...that's coffee LOVE right there.

But back to Thursday.....have a good one!:-)

And if Thursday is your coffee day, or EVERYDAY for that matter:-)...here's a little bit of fun (lets call it our Coffee Club anthem), our GF Venessa found for us somewhere....just HAD TO SHARE:-)....

Caffeine is my shepherd; I shall not doze.
It maketh me to wake in green pastures:
It leadeth me beyond the sleeping masses.
It restoreth my buzz:
It leadeth me in the paths of consciousness for its name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of addiction,
I will fear no Equal™:
For thou art with me; thy cream and thy sugar they comfort me.
Thou preparest a carafe before me in the presence of The Starbucks:
Thou anointest my day with pep; my mug runneth over.
Surely richness and taste shall follow me all the days of my life:
And I will dwell in the House of Mochas forever.
