Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I write about books, food, wine and travel. 

Come hang out with me.

Inspirational Sock Sunday

Inspirational Sock Sunday

“What you think, you become. What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you create.” - Buddha

High Vibes #socksunday is happening in my world today my friends. In keeping up with my tradition to start my year reading inspirational, motivational pieces of work, I’m taking time today to continue on with Queen @michelleobama herself. This is my IRL book clubs January pick too - because we should all be so lucky as to have Michelle dropping wisdom on us any day of the year.

I have been working REALLY HARD to go slow on this book, and really enjoy it. I tend to rip through these ones, but I find Michelle so inspirational as a person that I want to be able to appreciate her story fully. That and I know once it’s over there isn’t another book to tide me over. 😉

I have heard amazing things about the audio book version of this as well, which Michelle narrates herself, so I have been contemplating checking that out once I am done. Not to mention, I am VERY VERY lucky to be someone who will be seeing Michelle speak live on her latest tour, when she gets to her Edmonton stop. I am BEYOND stoked for this - I missed her last stop here and I was incredibly disappointed. Which meant being even MORE PREPARED to score tickets this time around - which I did. She is also speaking on a Friday night which means my gf’s and I will be making a full girls night out of it. How perfect is THAT?

I would LOVE to see more inspirational speakers this year, so I will certainly be making an effort to check out the line up that my local libraries offer - Edmonton Public Libraries have an amazing speaker series, and I love that its either free, or really reasonably priced to attend. Motivation should be easily accessed as far as I’m concerned. 😉

I’m also completely in love with this amazing Buddha mug that my friend @sherrylee405 got me for my birthday. The quote above in scripted around the rim so you can ponder being a positive being while sipping your tea. I love this. I love the little reminders to slow down and return to a place of gratitude and happiness that exist all around us. I want more of that around me this year. 🍵

QOTD: What fills your heart with gratitude and happiness? Tell me all the things that bring you love. We should all revel in happiness on a Sunday. Queen Michelle would want it. 😉💕

Happy Sunday y’all! 💕
