Thirty days ago I decided to get back into Blogging.

The decision was mainly based on my love for writing and the fact that I was disappointed that I strayed away from it in the last couple of years – especially after telling myself that my dream was to have a book published by the time I was 30. I think that being published is the ultimate desire for anyone who enjoys writing. I started this blog with no expectations except to post about things that I love – travel, shopping, food, quotes… (the list goes on) and hope that just a few people would be interested.

In 30 days I’ve had :

-over 2,800 views

-from over 70 countries

-and gained over 225 followers

My intentions are not to win the Nobel Prize for blogs but just to write to entertain, inform and if I’m lucky enough – to inspire.

I hope all of you had a wonder Christmas with lots of laughs, love and food while being surrounded by amazing friends and family.

It’s about your presence, not the presents.

Happy Birthday Jay-Z

Welcome to the last month before the “New Year” … let’s make it count!

Many people in the NJ/NY area woke up on October 30th not only to massive flooding, down trees and no power but some woke up to everything they have worked for their whole lives – GONE.

I for one am a NJ Girl, born & raised. I don’t think a lot of us really appreciated sites such as the boardwalk that we spent so many summers on until we had to view it like this…

The pictures of people’s homes and businesses gone is devastating. The news stories about the children as well as the men & women who lost their life during this super storm is something no one will ever forget. Normalcy is something that will not return for a while but the amount of support from people and volunteer groups is incredible. Those volunteers are truly the sunshine after such a dark  time.
