Well, here it is, the end of another year. Is it just me or are these years flying by faster and faster?

I am back home in NYC. Very happy to be back together with my girls and Mr. Memphis. Santa even dropped in last night and we had a wonderful morning opening gifts and having a delicious breakfast.

Tonight the girls and I are planning to snuggle on the couch, devour some special treats, watch movies and I will hope to stay awake until midnight. The perfect way to say goodbye to 2017 and ring in 2018.

I don’t really think I have any “BIG” resolutions for the new year. I have decided to just look forward, be more in the moment, enjoy this time. Be true to me and the people I love. To try and let the things that don’t really matter, go… To have fun, keep smiling, be open and always be kind. Here’s to 2018 and all of the new adventures that lay ahead!

May all your wishes for 2018 come true my friends. I wish you happiness, health, laughter, love and light! Happy, Happy New Year!!!

(Here are a few more pics from my Christmas adventure in London 😊)

It’s always an adventure and in life you never truly know where the next road is going to take you. Knowing that this was going to be my first Christmas without the girls I decided way back in May to book a trip to London. I love Christmas and I love big family and friend festivities during the holidays. These last couple of years, Christmas time has been very different. The girls and myself, have had to get used to new traditions and new realities. It is not always easy. I am trying to frame it that different doesn’t have to be hard, it is just different and can have new and exciting parts to it. Although, I have to admit, staying positive at the holidays can be tough. I find myself nostalgic and this year I knew that I would really miss not having the girls and I together. So I decided I needed a BIG distraction.

So, here I am, in London.

I chose London as my first solo international destination because it seemed like an “easy” trip to plan- a big city with lots going on, many neighborhoods to walk and explore and truthfully, for my own ease, an English speaking city to navigate.

I have been here for a couple of days now and am loving it. So much to see and do.

I have to admit, I was a bit sad to wake up this morning on Christmas, by myself, but shook it off with a brisk walk to Westminster Abbey and a beautiful church service. I have spoken to my girls and they are having a great time with their Dad. I am having fun doing something new and exciting. I mean… LONDON!!! Different AND awesome.

Yesterday I had the good fortune of meeting and talking with a fabulous couple. It was such a highlight to just connect with good people. As we parted ways one of the men hugged me and said “New beginnings are usually the start of something better”. Yes indeed.

Merry Christmas my beautiful friends ❤️
