I am about to cut a more than a foot off my long pretty hair. I love my hair but it is driving me crazy. It is so long and thick. I am donating it to Pantene lengths. —–> https://pantene.com/en-us/beautiful-lengths.

I’m on vacation, I am going to organize my house, and get rid of all the junk. I am throwing a lot of junk away in my life. It’s a fresh start materialistically, and spiritually. Life is constantly changing and so are we. That is why we can improve for the better. I am going to simplify my life, and find peace. I am shedding things in life that are weighing me down, and ready to better myself. I want to go back to work more organized.

I felt pretty with long hair, but I need to be authentic with myself, I don’t need to hide behind my hair to be pretty. I am letting go of it. What are some things that you need to let go of in your life? What is weighing you down in life, that you need to get rid of? Do you have “junk” that needs to be thrown away?

I need to quit thinking negatively.

There is a study that says clutter makes one depressed. I believe that study. Clutter is stressful, let’s simplify, and get rid of things that are weighing us down.

I feel so much better.

 

Whilst at the karaoke bar last night….

Since I am on vacation, my friends and I decided to live it up, and go out. We went to a karaoke bar, and had a blast. The crowd was older than us, but we are used to it, I mean we work in an assisted living.

There was an elderly gentleman, and he was so lively! It was awesome. He was dancing, and singing karaoke. We had a conversation with him, and he told us he is 75! Congrats to him!

I sure hope that if I am blessed enough to live until 75, that I am up dancing and singing with a smile on my face. What a blessing in disguise on a night out! He was adorable.

Christmas countdown 37 Day! Ahhh So not ready yet!

Christmas tree from last year.

Seriously, I have 37 days to get ready for Christmas. I have not done a single thing. I still need to mail Christmas cards to my large family, I have not done any Christmas shopping. My daughter’s birthday is in December as well. I really need to get it together! 😀

I am such a procrastinator. I am just so busy and I need to be more organized in my life, especially with my time management.

I am also excited to buy custom Christmas cards with my families pictures , because I try to make my own Christmas cards through adobe, and I am not a graphic designer. Well, I am not as good as these companies:

Evermine
Zazzle

Fall is nearly ending…

The breathe taking colors of the trees, and crisp autumn air. It is refreshing after a hot, hot summer.

Our family enjoys fall by, making leaf piles and jumping in them. Going to the pumpkin patch, and trick-or-treating with the kids, dressing up for Halloween. Taking the kids to Aspen, Colorado to see the beauty of the fall in the Rocky Mountains.

I feel like winter is already here in Denver. We’ve already had snowfall, and hit the slopes to go skiing. We have gone sledding as well, which is our favorite.

It is almost time for snowfall, and an occasional blizzard. There is something peaceful about the snow. I don’t know what it is, but winter is approaching.

Last years blizzard
This picture represents peace and quiet to me. Peaceful solitude.
