Weekend Recap

A couple of weeks ago, at work, I was introduced to a term called “Ubuntu.” In a huge nutshell the African term is used to describe how humans are connected through relation to one another. While I am simplifying this term tremendously, I do believe that it has much merit in today’s world.  I look around my life and feel most fulfilled when I am surrounded by, and engaging in, meaningful relationships. Whether that relationship be with a higher power, significant other, friend, family, pet, or nature, there is a sense of belonging and meaningfulness. Which was exactly what this past weekend was about. Every minute was spent connecting and relating with others.

Cocktails, cookies, cheesecake… this week’s Woman’s Health Weekend Challenge was more than necessary!

Putting the final touches on our road trip up the coast and can’t wait to stay at the Hotel Solage in Calistoga and sip champagne at Mumm Napa

Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas Week! XO
