Hello, everyone, and Happy New Year! I hope this year brings nothing but blessings to all of your lives. I’m very fortunate to have people like you stop by my little virtual home, interested in reading my posts and connecting with me. I love you guys and I thank you for your support.
The Internet and social media is a huge part of our everyday lives; I see how everyone is constantly on their phones like they’re an extension of our own bodies (and they truly are; some people just don’t like to admit it). I freak out every time I lose my phone, and let me tell you, this happens very often. I never, ever put things where they belong, lol. I’m a bit disorganized, but someone once told me – and don’t ask me who – that disorganized people tend to be the most creative people; that the creativity takes up the whole area of the brain meant for organization, lol (this someone gave me the perfect excuse ;)). Anyway, sometimes we get way to submerged in this cybernetic world and we forget about and take for granted making one-on- one connections in real life. These connections are the ones that matter and they mean the most. There is nothing like a warm simile, a heartfelt compliment, or listening to someone’s story while looking them in the eye, live and right in front of you.

Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of meeting a very sweet blogger friend, Sunshine and Peonies. We had a lovely time while having brunch at Café Boulud (the food there is amazing, so you need to check them out if you haven’t yet). We already had a connection through IG, but meeting her in person was a delight. I learned so much about her, her beautiful family, and the fact that she’s about to finish the construction of her dream home (it’s a beautiful home, by the way; you need to follow her IG stories and you’ll see).
This year, some of my goals are to connect with people one-on-one and make friendships, to find balance in life and step away from all the technology for a couple of hours a day, and to talk and interact more with my own family and friends. It’s important to experience and enjoy more our imperfect lives without a filter.
