Changes · VA Life


Tomorrow is my last day working at the company that spurred our move from London to Virginia.  As I sit here listening to breakup songs (I feel you, Macy Gray), I’m feeling mighty introspective about the whole thing. I’ve learned a lot here at this company.  There are a lot of things I won’t put… Continue reading Tomorrow…

A year full of awesome

I’m not a fan of the whole “New Year, New You” concept.  I’ve always thought it was hokey, cheesy and so on.  With that being said, 2016 was a craptacular year and I want to do everything I can to make 2017 better.  I want it to be a year full of awesome and happiness.… Continue reading A year full of awesome

Changes to blog

First, before I get into the blog changes, I have to say it’s been a gorgeous, warm and fantastic day out today.  And I’m out on my balcony, feet up on the sill (like a yap, as memom would say), drinking a green tea.  Up until now, I’ve been reading a fantastic book.  Today has… Continue reading Changes to blog


Changing Me, Part 1

I’m not a bad person, and I know that.  In the grand scheme of things and in the “balance of life”, I think I stand on the good side of things.  Others might argue differently, but that’s usually the case.  Regardless of how I feel about myself, I also know that there are loads of… Continue reading Changing Me, Part 1
