Aha! I Have to Start a Blog!

                          (View from my recent Port Townsend beach house retreat. So good for my soul!)

I recently left my corporate PR job at a really big amazing coffee company to spend more time with my daughter and to figure out what I want to do next – what feeds my soul. While on a walk this morning (by myself), I was struggling with a professional decision and a potential personal decision. My mind was full – it hurt, I felt anxious.  I made a decision to stop thinking about the decisions and to enjoy my walk.  The sun was shining in my face – I was following it, soaking up the Vitamin D that I need so badly.  I let my mind go and the idea for this blog literally popped into my mind. I had an Aha moment.  I never imagined writing a blog. But it became evident quickly that this is something I couldn’t not do. (Proper grammar: I had to do it!) I walked fast to get home to start writing.  

So, here are some of the things that came to mind immediately that I plan to cover in this blog, as long as they continue to feed my soul.
·         Going for a walk – BY MYSELF
·         Family
·         Friends – old and new
·         Flowers
·         Riding my bike
·         Flying a kite
·         Travel – near and far
·         Paris
·         Cards – in my mailbox
·         Creative People
·         Entertaining – and being entertained
·         Amazing Women
·         Giving and receiving
·         Color – especially orange, but I am not exclusive
·         Cool Products for a Cause
·         Dancing
·         Good Books
·         Good Magazines
·         Going to Church
·         My Morning Devotional
·         Neighborhood Restaurants (favs: Volunteer Park Café, Café Lago)
·         My Friends’ Blogs
·         Changing Seasons
·         Lake Tahoe
·         The Arboretum
·         The Wine Guy (will explain later!)
·         Bluebirds
I’d love to hear from you what feeds your soul, too.


  1. Amy, I'm so glad you decided to start this blog! Can't wait to see where you take it. This rainy morning, its a little tough to figure out what inspires me. At this point, I think its a good cup of coffee : - ) See you soon!

  2. Honest truth is that people like you feed my soul. People who take a leap of faith and chase their dreams...
