my gift to you

I stumbled across this website: ASOS( when I googled where I could buy a particular colour is now a staple in my list of websites I visit on a weekly basis. Prices are amazing and the clothes are from the UK - so it has the European trends, which I am dearly missing. The dress I ordered arrived today (holla!), and I am pumped about it! I officially have my bridesmaid dress for Kim's wedding! Yay! Can't give you a sneak peek...but I do recommend that you all visit this site for some good ol shopping (ie. Heather...this ones for you!) - key feature is that each item has a runway video so you can see what the item looks like live. soo good!
ps. August is flying by at a rapid pace!! Slooooow down!!!
pps. Happy 90th Birthday on August 8th to my grandpa (bunka)!! love you!

mini get-away

Just arrived home from a mini-vacay...and am waiting until rush hour is over to head north bound! yay! Feel as if I haven't been to the cottage in a bit! Anywho..Chris and I decided to make a good ol trip to do some cross border shopping yesterday. Since I have been spoiled over the years by doing my shopping in Florida, Buffalo was a serious let down. At least for me. Of course Tar-get allowed me to walk away with some goodies...but I think I will wait for FLA in the future. We then, in our fashion decided to cram everything in and head to NOTL for some wine tastings. Stopped at Inniskillen first, made out way to Jackson Triggs and walked 3 kms to Peller Estates. All fabulous...and for some reason people wanted to hook us up with freebies. holla! Truly enjoyed our NOTL experience. Would love to do it again, next time going to hit the trails with our bikes! After we closed up shop at Peller we made our way to the Hilton that of course was across the street from the Casino. I'm not much of a playa'...but the slots did me proud! Put in a $20 and cashed out $74...put in $20 and cashed out $53....of course put in lots of 5's here and there and lost. Came out even. Fair play! Was a late night, and long day but it was nice to do something different. This morning we woke up and joined the tourists to check out the falls. I actually can't remember the last time I saw them (not from a car), and was a little bit mesmerizing! Fun times! Alright time to pack my bags and get myself on the go. I could get use to this lifestyle! Enjoy the weekend! xo

let the lesson reveal itself to you

"What's the next lesson?" I asked.
"If you knew what it was, you wouldn't need to learn it," he said.
Often, in the midst of a lesson or experience, we tighten our minds into knots trying to figure out what we're learning, what's coming next, what the lesson is really about. But if we knew what the lesson was about, we wouldn't need to be learning it.
The learning we're doing on our spiritual path is often not possible from our heads or books. It's a process of discovery; it includes many twists, turns, surprises and upsets, much confusion, wondering, and stumbling until we reach a moment of clarity. To learn the lesson, we need to go through the experience. And usually we learn best when we're a bit vulnerable and uncertain about what we're learning.
Trust that the lesson will reveal itself to you when it's time. Stay present for this moment. Let your experiences and guidance unfold. You're evolving and learning and growing right now. When the transformation is complete, you'll see what you've learned.
Other people may be there to help us,
teach us, guide us along our path. But
the lesson to be learned is always ours.
