It has been way too long! How are you? I hope you have been good, better than good, great! And of course grateful!
Doug and I have much to be grateful for this year. We have reached our goal (dream) of a successful relocation from Indiana to North Eastern Florida; St Augustine to be precise! The move happened last Oct and we are just about getting settled! Moving at anytime in your life is a big venture, but let me tell you doing it over 50 is something else! lol
Now I just wait for Doug to retire! That should happen in the next 3 years. In the meantime I keep busy with my travel business and of course, writing. On that front though……I have slacked. I want to change that. One reason I desperately wanted to move here was to be inspired to connect more to earth and God. Something within said I needed to do this, so we made it happen. Now I need to get to the writing aspect of it. I have definitely fully embraced the relaxation of my new community! I love it. I have continued to develop a love for photography, I have included some of my recent photos. In case you are at all curious to see more, you can view them on my Instagram account found at @Desperatelyseekingchristine there is a link here on this page also. I would love to follow you back!
So while we are busy living our lives, of course, life continues. We are blessed to have welcomed a new granddaughter last Dec and are doubly blessed by welcoming another new granddaughter this coming Oct! If you are keeping score the grandkid count now sits at – 4 boys and 7 girls! huh, imagine that…girls are winning! Ha!
The book! As you know The Gratitude Project was released last May. It went to Best Seller several times….. I am very grateful for the experience of writing and releasing my book. I will give this as an example of how I feel about it- I received a review from someone on Goodreads, in her review she said the book just wasn’t for her. She said she felt it had too much God in it and that I drew too much from personal experience when writing my book….so too anecdotal. That may be a negative review to some; but to me….she made my day! That was an excellent review!! Her review says to me that I did a good job and met my goal! No such thing as too much God…. I was actually worried I didn’t give Him enough space! And the book was about my personal experiences, how else am I to have an informed opinion? Too many people think you should study,study,study and then, and only then, offer opinion! I think you need to live life and share experiences! That is real. I like real!
I will end this now, but I want to say I hope 2018 is finding you and your loved ones in good health and good will! If you are in need of healing and peaceful thoughts please take a moment now to connect to my energy….. I give it freely with love. Sending healing, peaceful, relaxing, thoughts and prayers to you and yours!!
