Self: An Adventure that Calls

Pin It

Hello, my friends! Yes, I'm still here, Since I haven't posted for a long while, several of you contacted me to make sure that I was okay. Thank you, dear hearts! I appreciate you caring!

I apologize for the cryptic post way back in August...and no follow up since then! Oddly enough, when I wrote that post, I was all hyped up about getting healthy and having some major external changes. I had been working with a health coach and feeling great!

But the changes didn't stop there. While things had changed over the summer, the real changes didn't even begin until that post. What do I mean by that? Well, things started to go internal...mentally, emotionally, spiritually. I felt the need to dive into some difficult questions, like "What is my purpose?" and all that deep stuff! I decided that I needed to prioritize myself and put other non-essentials to the back burner for a while. The adventure was calling, and I had to go. Do you know what I mean?

When you go for real, authentic healing, it is a life-altering experience. More than that, it is a series of life-altering experiences. And it's a bit of a roller coaster. For me, it has been a season of self-awareness, self-discovery, self-acceptance, and self-empowerment. I am not the same person I was last year, last month, or even last week. I truly feel that something beautiful is on the horizon. I can't help but seek it out.

Have any of you ever had a life journey like this? How did you grow from it? What beauty did you find?

Hey, sweeties! Let begin by telling you...I've been on an adventure. Oh, yes, I've traveled a bit this summer, but I'm talking about that kind of adventure. I'm talking about real adventure. Life changing adventure. Transformational adventure! Like top-5-best-thing-ever-in-my-life adventure!! It's been so amazing, that I can't wait to tell you. But I must wait. But not too long!

In the meantime, while you're stewing away at home wondering "what could it be?," I'm going to leave you with some cryptic hints about what I'm about to announce.

A Series of Unfortunate Events...<

Is that cryptic enough for you? Any guesses?

Hey, what's up, gang? I've been absent for a while…doing that whole life thing. I also had to deal with a fake blog who stole my entire feed. Whaaaat? Who does that? Whoever they are were, I am happy to say that blog has now been deleted. Thank you, Google.

On an even happier note, WhisperWood Cottage is being featured on along with a few other bloggers you might know...

Functional Kitchen Cabinet Storage Ideas

Pin It

We had a lot of fun planning our kitchen renovation. We ultimately went with the Martha Stewart Line of cabinetry at Home Depot.

We love the quality, and they have a lot of great options that make the cabinets works so well.  One example is the pull-out drawer feature. Love! Here are some more features we love...
