Look Who Turned 2 Years Old ....


Our little Gabbana turned 2 today!!!


This was Gabbana when she came to live with us in April 2012...she has lightened up so much over the past two years...



 From day one she was a ball of energy ...keeping up with big brother Dolce...
and big sister Stella...
 In 2013 she had a bath at home ... and decided that Dave the Groomer does it better!!
In 2013 Gabbana started to enjoy car rides (no more car sickness)
 to the city and stroller rides along the waterfront with Dolce.


Gabbana and Dolce ....

Gabbana is such a girlie girl!!! In her birthday dress and playing with her "doggie" toy...

Happy Birthday to our little darling furbaby!!!

What I Wore to Write ...



One of the great things about writing is that you can do it in the of your home comfort and I may or may not have done it from the comfort of my bed in jammies on occasion.



But on this day I decided it was time to start dressing beyond my jammies and sweats - even if I was not planning on going anywhere: So this is what I wore ~ Elie Tahari jeans, Banana Republic grey sweater; for accessories I chose my orange Hermes bangle, Ralph Lauren black leather belt, a necklace with black leather rope and metal pendant ( a gift from Angel P's mother) and black leather strap Lucien Piccard watch.


And when I was ready for a break it was easy to head out the door I just added my a black leather Town Shoes booties  (a gift to me during the 2013 boxing week sale). and of course my heavy winter coat as it's has been extremely cold here.

If you work from home what is your go to clothing choices to be comfortable but still ready to head out?

How Do You Manage Change?

Welcome to Over a Cup of Tea...
Today for our tea I've chosen this beautiful teacup and saucer from the Bombay Company. The gold handle with the finger hold and the sturdy thumb rest is perfect for a time when you become deep in thought.


Of course it's always wonderful to add a little treat ... these are actually yummy bite size biscuits.


This was the message on my tea ...


Now that we have our tea and bite size treats I would like to share this excerpt from my speaking engagement with BIST (Brain Injury Society of Toronto) in October 2013.



The key to getting through any of the detours (expected and unexpected) that may come your way as you move forward on your life journey is to love and make time for taking care of yourself. 

How do you deal with change? 
Would love for you to share your tips.

Do One Thing Today to Improve Your Life ....

Welcome to Over a Cup of Tea ...


As we said good-bye to 2013 many of us set about making plans, setting goals/intentions or making New Year resolutions. How is it going? 


Being healthier was one of the intentions I set for 2014 ~ and being more active is an ACTION that will help me achieve this. 


I have recently enrolled -and have been attending- weekly bAAArre classes, I'm also practicing yoga regularly - 2-3 times per week. I'm starting to feel the benefits of being active and it's only been 2 weeks. I'm looking forward to making being more active part of my lifestyle.


If you are not on track - What is holding you back from achieving what you set out to do? 

If you are I hope that you will share what worked for you to getting started in the comments.


It is amazing what can happen over a cup of tea, when you sit back in a comfy chair - wrap your hands around your teacup; take in the warmth and scent of your fresh brew; and for a few minutes in your day allow your mind to drift and dream of how you would like your life to be. All the while this nectar from the Gods known as tea slips it's way past your pearly whites, over your taste buds nurturing your body and soul.

What is ONE thing that you could do today that will get you on track?

Hugs,
