A beautiful reminder to stay in the now…. XOXOXO
I constantly catch my mind planning out my future. I might be thinking about where to have dinner (the very near future), dreaming of my next home (the few years away future), deciding on my next travel adventure (the hopefully this year future), or what type of shoes I want to buy next (the sometime this month future).

Look the Other Way You say you understand “I get you” That’s sweet I really need you to But let me take you by the hand And walk you through A broken shattered soul Full of cracks and gapping holes A heart broken crushed I know it doesn’t seem like much But how could you... Continue Reading →
Becoming aware of ourselves is a beautiful thing. Embracing the moment is even more, it's enlightening.
Loving is so personal, yet in sharing it we help heal ourselves and others. When we remember our lovers and the moments we shared, we pull deep from our soul the essence of that person that will be with us forever. This is from one of those moments... XOXOXO Happy Valentine's Day! Sandy Lost... Continue Reading →
