I have a problem… As soon as I return from a trip, I feel like it never happened. I spent nearly a month on the best adventure of my life thus far, doing things along the like of this….
(the stars, not the beach)
and now I feel like it happened in the blink of an eye.
I am trying very hard to accept the reality, that my life probably can’t be one vacation after another, but it is VERY hard!
Thus, I’m off to scheming my next escapade…
Skiing for my Birthday.
Vienna to visit Rob.
The Azores to live the dream.
and Sierra Leon to get a whole new perspective on what it means to be a clinician.
Here’s to making these adventures happen in 2012 and always scheming.
Once upon a time, I knew the wisest man I ever met, Dr. Surette.
Ralph is a man I will never forget. Not only is his character and compassion top notch, but his advice is the best I will ever receive.
Dr. Surette was a preacher of congruency, finding the harmony of perfect balance in your life to be happy, no matter what.
As of late, this has been my standing ground, doing things that truly making me happy and bring congruence to my life.
Sometimes you need a little shaking to remember not everything obvious brings congruence to your life.
Cheers to you Dr. Surette, and knowing exactly what congruence means.
My only wish is that you were an everyday influence in my life.
I’m here ! I’m SO excited to be relaxing and not having any agenda to worry about until I am headed back to Chicago on Sunday.
Of course, spending time with my family for the Thanksgiving Holiday will be fabulous !
I am thankful for all the new experiences I have had over the last year and excited about the new ones to come ! Moving to a new city was very hard in the beginning but I am finally feeling happy to have made such a leap !
Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving with lots of yummy food, laughs and love !! XX
I could eat this salad absolutely everyday. It is totally worth the effort of extracting the pomegranate it seeds. Nothing is better !
A whole lotta Pomegranate seeds
Blood oranges and or Naval oranges, both the juice and segments are needed
Grapefruit, Segments and juice once again
Avocado, Lightly salted
The Dressing: Reserved juices (usually from half the fruit, depends on your ambition and hunger), olive oil, salt and pepper, honey, and diced Red onion (again, if you’re ambitious)
Assemble and YUM! SUPER super foods !!!
