Since I have more followers on this blog and many of you are photographers, please take a moment to read this and I hope to see some submissions from some of you. Thanks!

The Blog

In starting this blog, my goal is for it to be an informative, interesting and a visually pleasing blog for everyone to enjoy. I love reading about people’s travel and seeing beautiful photographs from around the world.

Since I by no means have been everywhere in the world, and the fact that there are people from around the world here on WordPress, I thought I might try something on a trial basis. I am interested in accepting your beautiful travel images from around the world to highlight on my front page sidebar. Depending on how many submissions I get, I would probably highlight it for about a week.

I may also be interested in posting guest bloggers, on occasion, who have interesting stories about their travels with beautiful images attached. Please keep in mind that this blog focuses on luxurytravel so it must have that spin on it. I know that luxury…

Spiraling Out Of Control…

…In a good way! I’ve been so busy lately doing so many different things, my head is spinning so I thought this might be an appropriate post. Hope your Friday has you twirling with fun into the weekend. Enjoy!

The Majestic Beauty of Zion National Park

A little shameless promotion for my new site…please forgive me. 🙂

The Blog

There are some places that you visit that just take your breath away. To me, Zion National Park was one of these places. The size, the colors and the fact that this has nothing to do with being man-made is astounding to me. Enjoy the majestic beauty of Zion National Park.

Man stands in his own shadow and wonders why it’s dark. ~ Zen Proverb

I love this quote because it’s so true. What I mean by that is, we are the ones who stop ourselves from doing things we want to do and then we wonder why we’re not happy or don’t have a fulfilled life.

Today I decided that I was going to paint my hallway and living room. I went out, bought the paint and starting painting. I’ve done this before so I didn’t think much of it. In the midst of doing this, I had two friends call and ask what I was doing so I told them. I thought it quite funny when both of their separate responses were “you’re amazing”. Not that I don’t want to hear that but I thought well no, I just grabbed a paint brush and painted a wall.

My point being, I have the will to try. Everyone should get out there and give whatever it is they want to do a try. Don’t stand in your shadow and pout because life isn’t what you want it to be ~ it is up to you to create the life you want….or, in my case, the interior design that I want. 😉

Flowers for you…

A great big thank you to all of you who gave me your input regarding my poll question on posting some trip options on this site. I decided to start another blog ~ SKEdaddle.

I felt more comfortable creating a new blog which will focus solely on luxury travel. I will highlight the properties I visit, destinations and I will offer some trips on my page called Take a Journey. This way, those of you who want to follow and receive information on luxury travel can hop on board with SKEdaddle.

Again, thank you so much to all of you. As always, I appreciate your support. Have a great Monday!

Heading Out The Door….
