I love Blogging. And everything it represents.
I've been doing it for a very long time.
I go thru ebbs and flows like we all do. But my recent break from blogging really saddened me.
I didn't feel like I had a voice for blogging.
I thought I had nothing to say. I felt empty.
It was very bad for me.
Because even those times are worth blogging about. Maybe even more than when it just flows.
I know i need to share my truths. So that's when I'm going to start doing. And I'll do the best I can with it. As a come out of this funk for lack of a better word.

I've had lots of beautiful things happen, I've had some disappointing things happen, and in between.
I haven't had a really a chance to catch my breath. And that's what today is for.
I joined Weight Watchers this year. It was a gift for 2014. And I'm starting to lose weight. Even other people are noticing!
We've decided to move back to Titusville. In one weeks time. Now the time is to rest my mind for a day before the chaos of moving sets in....
Reading and meditating on letting go of attachments really helps me with this. Today I journal. Today I read on how to live a balanced life. Today I read on manifesting. Eat healthy + think healthy = feeling healthy. Time for a reprieve from life♥

My luv affair with a beautiful coat started...... Past week i was lucky enough to be near a Chico's Store. Luv them! Such a treat. Wonderful sales staff, and beautiful jewelry & clothing. Dream!
True story, my wallet, not so much!
I was truly blessed though and able to get 50 percent off on all their sale items. So I scored a few really cute pieces. For really good prices! Staple pieces I call them!! After getting home i decided to looky at the website.
Eeeck! I found something that is just spectacular!
Something I could have for a very very long time in my wardrobe. & I love that! Without further ado here is the jacket of my dreams.......
That would be Ebay. I've found some gr8t new clothing purchases for much less then even Marshalls. Draw back is figuring if size, and style will fit ... Sometimes you just gotta dive in and take THAT chance!
Here's what I found!
But remember I'm trying to find something in my price range and sometimes that means color, style and design are going to be way different. What it does have going for it is the same luxurious old Hollywood glamour feel. That's what I was going for. And I believe this piece has that.
They did show on one of the photos of the interior of the jacket was a luxurious polyester high quality lining. & I like the big bell arms on it. Also it's a Moda International piece. Same company that does Victoria Secrets Coat designs. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not. Lol. Drum roll.... Price: $34.00. I won the bid at $24.00 but $10.00 to ship! Can't wait photos to come!!! Did I mention my wallet luvs Ebay? They got a little thing going on... I think it maybe serious! Lol

I've spent the last few months reading more on JFK and now Jackie since it was 50 years past November that Jack was assassinated.
Alot of new books, magazine's and articles on the subject.
Discerning what I bring home to my closet. Will it last? Can I wear it a few years from now? Will it be a style still popular? Fashionable?
I'm really fine tuning my look. Must be the turning 50 last April thang.....
One of my fav store's is Chico's.
It went so fast 2013..... I'm glad but a bit sad time is truly flying! 2014..... Dreamer Doer
I picked two words for 2014. They connect to each other.
Dreamer I am that. Doer. Not always but this year is change!
I created a simple journal. I bought a inspiring book. I'm re-defining who Shanti is. Of course aren't we always redefining ourselves. Editing ourselves. Deleting and adding??? This is the year of filling in my blanks. Worrying less. Enjoying more. Simply Shanti. Thatz probably closer to what I would like to be....
More to come...Stay tuned!
