First day onboard Voyager of The Seas on Royal Caribbean -- We went to Europe

A glass of wine, a peach bellini, and a coffee drink later...I was taking self portraits

Where I would like to be right now. Meditating on a beach.


Happy Thanksgiving

Hi! My name is Teresa. I'm 41 + 1 year, and want to be in better shape than I ever have before.

A little about me:

I am married to a wonderful guy, who is very supportive and more patient than he should be. I have 3 beautiful daughters who are 22, 20 and 9. My oldest daughter has a s.o. and they gave us our 3 absolutely adorable grandchildren. We also have 3 miniature dachshunds, and one really grumpy siamese cat (she'll never forgive us for bringing home those dogs and that baby).

I live in the beautiful Pacific NW, and the more places we visit (with the exception of France) the more we love our home.

    Thanks for the cocoa, Teresa - I've been drinking that almost every day along with mass quantities of other hot liquids, and am feeling much better. Went out walking in the cold for the first time in over a week today and it felt great to be outdoors again!

    Blessings for a great weekend

    Funny to see you here on my Spark page blog for a change! Thanks for the encouraging word - I'm determined to get rid of more plastic in the months ahead!

    Blessings in the new week!

    You're sore from your run and I'm sore from lugging Logan through the play structure at Safari Sam's. I'm too old for that army crawl! LOL!
