I told my story to quite a few locals in Maui….

I sold my wedding ring and bought myself a trip to Maui…

I heard so much Wow, that’s so cool…

I DID it for ME….and it was one of my BEST decisions EVER!

The water brought me the peace I was craving and the time gave me what I needed to complete my healing journey

 

I met so many people who touched my heart & my soul with their kindness & words……

I will be forever grateful for my time away & my circle of friends who support & love me everyday in everyway

I did save from my ring the baguette diamonds from my Mothers original wedding ring to turn them into earrings ..

When I LOVE… I LOVE HARD ❤️️

THESE PEOPLE I ❤️

Having a Beautiful Service for my Mom included so MUCH support & kindness from these and so many other people….my friends ❤️️❤️

I FEEL SO BLESSED …..

part of the time spent preparing for my Moms service included a visit from my sister….

We have not ALWAYS seen eye to eye BUT she is one of the MOST talented women I know… Seriously

She has this “eye” for the little things that make a difference and the “big” things like moving my bedroom 📺 out of my room😘 and maybe getting rid of stuff I was holding onto 🤗😘

Heres some of her “touches” in my home that STILL make me SMILE….

Thank U Stacey…..

The door is ALWAYS OPEN for a visit…….

LOVE U MUCH ❤️️❤️

One Day At a Time 🕰⏰🕰⏰

I’m STILL Celebrating turning 49.95

YES $49.95 NOT 50

That was the theme of my day and it CONTINUES.

I got GREAT gifts like FUN gift cards

(I didn’t know Nordstrom would do $49.95 gift cards :0)

and

DRUNK gummy bears soaked in vodka…..

BUT the BEST gifts were the cards, the notes, the LOVE shown by my very dear friends these past weeks, months and  years….

THANK YOU one and ALL

Last Friday night I had the BEST date with the original JZ who took me to see Justin Timberlake and the other Jay-Z as a birthday extra.

She already spoiled me with my favorite things, so this was above and beyond.

The sea of cell phones shot in the right lower corner was an AMAZING moment

It sent chills down my spine….SO COOL to be there 

THANK YOU JZ…..

The OTHER concert I attended last weekend was WE THE KINGS with Ryan at the Regency Ballroom.

Ryan LOVES the band

They have a song called ” Just Keep Breathing” that he sent to me as a theme song……….Luv Him

Now that the Celebrations are over, I will JUST Keep  Breathing and live this motto in the coming weeks……..
