Reading has always been my favorite past time, but with a busy schedule and work loads that feel like they are never ending, reading tends to be kicked to the curb. Now more than ever, I am trying to get myself back into the habit of reading.
I am truly shocked by how fast this summer is going. I can hardly believe that we are now half way through July – but I will admit that I am looking forward to the cool weather again. Last week, a friend and I ventured out to Hawk Ridge Winery which is located in Watertown, CT. As soon as we made the plans I could hardly contain my excitement, because 1. I have never been and 2. it is always nice to catch up and spend some time with friends!
To me, there is no better feeling than picking up a new book to read and finishing it. Reading makes me feel more accomplished and more relaxed. Now that it is a new year, I set myself goal of reading at least 30 books! It has been a while since I read that many in a year and I hope that I can reach that goal or even more.
Happy New Year! It is crazy how fast 2017 has gone by, I truly hope that this year will be the year that all your goals and dreams can be met! I haven’t made any resolutions for this year yet only because in the past I felt like I made goals that were aspiration oriented versus goal oriented so I felt like I wasn’t achieving much. I felt less organized and more discouraged, so this year I am working on creating more goal oriented resolutions that I know will be more satisfying by the end of the year. Did you make a list of resolutions for this year?
Christmas is exactly one week away! Luckily this year I have completed my Christmas shopping, but if you are still looking for some last minute gifts, here are some ideas!
Stress is something that seems to be inescapable lately. There is the good stress and the bad stress and I feel that I have fallen somewhere in between calm and manic. In order for me to better control my stress and anxiety, here are three things that I try to incorporate into my daily routine.

One thing that I have been dedicated to this summer is taking time to unwind and figure out something that will bring more joy to my life. One way that I find peace and relaxation is by listening to podcasts. What I love about listening is that I a) feel like I am learning something new b) feel like I am part of a conversation c) feel more motivated. There are so many podcast that are available on iTunes and all you have to do is subscribe (w/o a fee for most). I may be subscribed to over ten different podcast but I have a top five.
When it comes to shopping, I have learnt a few tricks that has helped me save some money and at the same time get the items that I love.
For my birthday in June, I took a day trip into my favorite city to spend the time with my older brother and his girlfriend. I know there are so many things to do in the city, but there is one place that I always find myself going back to at least once a year.
