December's Wintry Mix

See the positive side, the potential, and make an effort.
(Dalai Lama)

Reverb 10 kicks off today with a lovely prompt from Gwen Bell. It's already got me reflecting on this year and manifesting what's next.

I hope you all had lovely Thanksgivings. Ours was quiet, simple and full of gratitude. It's hard to believe that I haven't posted here since November 21 - this might be my longest break in blogging history. I feel like quickly catching you up on all the happenings before fully diving into December.

This past Sunday I left Raleigh for a trip to Las Vegas. I attended college at UNLV and my old roomie / best friend still lives out there. It was my first trip back since graduating. We had the best time catching up and walking around campus. We even met up with my old swim coach. So much has changed, but a lot is exactly the same. As I look back, my heart is filled with great memories and gratitude for the time I spent in Sin City.

I'm currently en route to Napa to visit my grandparents and meet up with the rest of the Reverb 10 team. We're meeting IRL to combine our magical forces. I am giddy and overjoyed about the few days that lie ahead.

Life have been wonderful lately and I am so delighted that Reverb 10 is taking flight. I am ready to write on our daily prompts and to connect with all the lovely participants.

I created the following playlist to help ring in December. It will be playing in the background as I reflect and manifest. I hope you enjoy it and find inspiration in listening to the tunes below!
