{Tasty Tuesday…}

My darlings, where ever did the month of January go?  My apologies dear ones for not posting since last week.  I feel like it has been nonstop since we’ve entered this new year and by the looks of it, there is no slowing down for this gal.  I have trips scheduled out in each month until the end of Twenty-twelve and somewhere in that schedule I need to make sure that it’s not all work and that there is quite a bit of play.  So to end the month on a cheerful note, and since its Five o’clock somewhere, let us whip up a yummy cocktail and toast to the next eleven months bringing great success and many wonderful adventures.  Cheers love!!!

xoxo

{Morning Tea…}

Happy Monday Beloved!  Hope your weekend was delightful. 

As we get started on a new week, take a minute to indulge in your beverage of choice, reflect on all of the good things that are going exceptionally well in your life (I’m confident that you can at least think of one thing), and then go out and share with the world the best parts of you.  Cheers darlings!
