Destination Unknown

OMG!!

I can’t believe there are only THREE days left in the year; 2016 is definitely getting out of here with quickness. That also means three more days to get my life in order and make some goals for 2017.

For this year I only started making plans in January which was extra late, but this time hopefully it’s not the same. At the beginning of the year I was living in Texas and had a totally different outlook on my life and where I’d be at this point in time.

It’s good to make plans and to have an idea of where you want to go in life and the accomplishments you want to make. However, some times everything doesn’t go as planned and changes occur. The path I had set out for myself in January took many turns, and eventually I had no choice but to go with the flow.

As I go into 2017 I welcome new pathways in hopes that they enrich me with blessings and lessons to be learnt.

Welcome Home

T’is the Season

It’s the eve of December and thanksgiving is long gone, so you know what’s next right?

CHRISTMAS

The most wonderful time of the year.
I absolutely adore Christmas for so many reasons.
From the food, music, decorations, movies etc etc
I just love the feel of the Christmas season.
It also happens to get cooler in the tropics as oppose to Winter elsewhere. Continue reading “T’is the Season”

WPC // Magic of Nature

Don’t you think it’s awfully magical the way the sky changes from day to-night or night to-day?

The different colors and hues which light up the sky sending you into a shock of amazement.

It’s also magical the way it makes you feel; a sense of calmness as you watch another day end or begin.

To me, nature is simply MAGICAL

Here’s a picture of the sun setting just beyond the hills from my home. It was simply amazing seeing the sky decorated with such colors from my window.

P.S You can find magic in any thing.

Local Food // Caribbean Style

“Local” – relating or restricted to a particular area or one’s neighborhood

For this week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge was ‘Local’; they asked us to show what home means to us, and where our hearts lay. The first thing I could think of when I heard the word ‘local’ was FOOD.

Food in the Caribbean is VERY different to that of America and other places around the world. Of course each island has something different that they specialize in, however regionally we carry almost the same products.

As mentioned in a previous post (In my Kitchen // Roast Whole Chicken ) Sunday dinners are usually a big thing, but so is breakfast.

Let’s just say Sundays are for plenty cooking.

Rainy Days

Happy Monday Guys!

Today started off rather gloomy and quiet. It’s been raining for a little over an hour now, and I hope it continues all day. I’m the type of person who loves the rain especially if I’m at home. Not only does it get a little cooler, but there’s something peaceful about hearing rain drops on your roof/window.

The rain is also the perfect get-out-of-jail free card for people like me; as I can use it as an excuse to stay in as opposed to going out when I’m not up for it. Today just also happened to be one of those days, as I was debating leaving home (even though I didn’t want to) it began to rain. An answer to my prayers.

Rainy days also call for:

  Snuggling up in bed with a good movie/book

 Sleeping in/ taking a nap throughout the day, just to enjoy the peace and quiet

 Catching up on some blog posts

Indulging in a new hobby; time to try my hand at some DIYs

What do you guys do on rainy days? Do you enjoy or detest them?

Early Bird Catches the Worm

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Early Bird.”

sunrise

“Early Bird Catches the Worm” was something my mom used to say to us [my sisters and I] in order to get out of bed, and go to school.This photo was taken around 7:40 a.m. on the way to the bus stop. Unfortunately, I have 8:00 a.m. classes three days a week, but i guess on the plus side I get to see a beautiful sunrise such as this one.
