Hey Blog Family,
We had such a great turnout for the last Mix and Mingle…so, it’s time for another one! Let’s take a moment to say hi to someone new, and possibly gain a long-term friend!
Let’s pretend that we are sharing a cup of coffee (or some other fancy drink if coffee isn’t your thing). Over this cup of coffee, we will share details about our week with one another. This idea was inspired by the Writing 101 course that I’ve signed up for via WordPress.
As always, thanks for joining! Now, let’s grab a cup of coffee!
If we were drinking coffee right now, I’d let you know that I’ve recently wrote an Open Letter To My Father. I’ve never been so transparent before with him. I was able to share most of my thoughts and feelings that I’ve been keeping safe since childhood. My father and I have grown much closer over the last couple of years, so I felt that we were in a better place to be able to communicate more freely and open. In response to the letter, he let me know that I wasn’t actually a headache for him…lol. He shared some personal feelings of his own from these earlier experiences. Nothing but smiles from me! I am even trying to plan for a family reunion…something we’ve never done before with my father’s side of the family.
If we were drinking coffee right now, I’d let you know that in about a week, I will be traveling to Mexico for 7 days!! I am excited for the well deserved vacation, the food, the activities, and dancing! I’ve been trying my best to eat healthier, and become more physically active. I do worry that my healthy lifestyle will suffer…just a smidge, because I’ll be in such an exotic place. Anyone who knows me, understands how serious I am about my food. I’ll plan to do some outside activities to keep my heart rate up…in exchange for eating any and everything, and relaxing on most days.
If we were drinking coffee right now, I’d let you know that while I’m away in Mexico, I will miss blogging as often as I’d like. I’ve honestly grown to look forward to connecting with all of you. So many opportunities to meet such wonderful people, and become inspired by your posts! But, I’ll be happy to update all of you on how awesome this trip has been when I return!
