“Advice is like snow—the softer it falls, the longer it dwells upon, and the deeper it sinks to the mind.” ~Samuel Taylor Coleridge Dear Universe, It’s been snowing—a lot. Now of course I know it’s winter and that I live in New England so naturally I can expect a little snow this time of year. But it’s been snowing more …

“Sometimes when you lose your way, you find YOURSELF.” ~Mandy Hale Dear Universe, About eight or nine years ago I saw a bumper sticker with a quote in big, block letters.  It said: “Not all who wander are lost.” ~J.R.R. Tolkien I bought it.  I wasn’t quite sure why since I knew I wouldn’t be sticking it on my car, …

“Deepest joy is like a flower….beautiful in essence.” ~Tony Samara Dear Universe, I have discovered—or rather re-discovered—something about myself. I like gardening.  Specifically, I like planting flowers, caring for them and watching them bloom. Years ago, I would plant flowers in the spring and tend to them.  I always enjoyed it.  I don’t know why I forgot that. Life can …

“Peace is not something you wish for, it is something you make, something you are, something you do, and something you give away.” ~ Robert Fulghum Dear Universe, I can’t believe it’s already December!

Dear Universe, I have a confession.  Don’t judge me.  (Well, I know you won’t.) These past several days I have been sucked into a Hallmark Holiday Movie Marathon. Yes, I said several days.  And yes, I asked you not to judge! How did this happen, you ask? Well, it was the perfect storm of ingredients. This past weekend, I was …

Dear Universe, Sometimes a girl needs to just sit at a bar. I’m not talking about the kind of bar that serves drinks with umbrellas and cherries.  I’m talking about a bar that you sit back, relax, and let the barista—or rather hairista—blowout your hair. A blowout bar. That’s right.  For a while now I’ve been wanting to try Dry …

Dear Universe, In life we often remember “moments.”  Whether they were ones that stole our breath, ones that we anticipated or ones that we’d rather forget—somehow life can be strung together in a series of moments—almost like a photo album of our lives. Birth, first steps, first birthday, first day of school, first friend, first dance, first kiss, first job, …

Dear Universe, This semester I have a busy schedule.  Okay, a somewhat insane schedule.  On certain days I go from car to class to car to train to class to train to class to car to… it gets confusing!  If I happen to have time to grab a coffee between all this shuffling around—well, it’s a blessing. I hate rushing, …
