Monday Motivation: Installment 41

A client sent me a message the other day with the following quote;   “A goal without a plan is just a wish”- Antoine de Saint Exupery   I love it.  So true.   If you don’t know me or are new to the blog, I live my life by the goals I set.  If a day goes by that I did not move closer to my goals, I consider that day a missed opportunity.   I started writing down my goals when I was in middle school.  When I look back at those old...

Jess and I landed in Dayton, Ohio on Thanksgiving morning to kick off a much-needed 10-day vacation. We had been mentally preparing for weeks for the cold weather that we were bound to encounter.  It’s only been a year and a half in paradise (LA), but we are spoiled rotten. When we got off the plane for our layover in Cleveland, it was like I had been transported to Hoth.  All of a sudden, I could see my breath and my knuckles cracked one by one from instant dryness.   It...
