“The love we give away is the only love we keep.” ~Elbert Hubbard Dear Universe, It’s Valentine’s Day, which means love is in the air even more today. Whether you are spoken for or single, who doesn’t love to receive a little something for St. Valentine’s? It can be a box of chocolates, flowers or a card, but letting someone …

“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.” ~Mother Teresa Dear Universe, It’s that time of year again.  It’s the season to be jolly, with the sounds of fireplaces crackling and sleigh bells ringing.  It’s the season to see snowflakes falling and reindeer dashing. It’s also the season of giving. Things can get pretty …

Dear Universe, Classes are winding down this week.  While this was my busiest semester, it was one of my favorites so it’s been a little sad saying goodbye to my students. A funny thing has been happening, though. Without realizing, my students have given me a few parting gifts—the kind money can’t buy. The other day, a student sent me …

“It is not down in any map; true places never are.”  ~Herman Melville Dear Universe, Well, it’s official.  I love Selfridges.  (Don’t worry Big Ben, I still love you too.)

Dear Universe, As much as I try not to be, I’m a worrier. I worry about the future—which is pretty understandable.  Sometimes I worry about the present and what I’m doing in the now.   And on particularly worrisome days, I worry about the past and how it’s effecting the present and future! It’s exhausting. Other times I worry about my …

It’s a Wrap

Dear Universe, I’m not a fan of wrapping.  I’m not sure I know anyone who is. In theory, I like giving loved ones beautifully wrapped presents that look like a professional handled them.  In reality, I don’t always have the patience or the time (often getting to it at the last minute). More often than not, it’s a gift bag …
