Hello AllIt's been a while hasn't it? I admit I gave up for a bit. We all at some point battle with the "what if it's not good enough" syndrome. That's where I was and stopped working on everything. I doubted myself, my ability, determination and drive. I wasn't succeeding like I wanted to and lost heart. Now I have to start over with the training and stick with it. Have to think outside the box and make something work. I admit I'm a tad tunnel visioned and stick to a particular path not wantin

I was never really that much into Instagram but I created an instagram for my travel page a few days ago and an instagramming a ton of pictures from Hawaii. Only have 13 followers so far over a couple days and have done 25 posts. I'll probably add more pictures tonight because I'll be going through more photos. Is there such a thing as instagramming too much?

You enter the theater, choose your seat, the lights dim around you as they tell you you'll see a short video of that fateful day the Arizonia and several other ships sank killing over 1000 crewmen. The film starts off with the politics of it all and how it led to Japan's success in 1941. As the film rolled so did my tears. I cried for the men that lost their lives that day, I cried for humanities lack of learning and I cried for the continued wars we continue to have. Setting foot on the memori

Hawaii......what can I say? It is truly a fantastic place to visit. Words and pictures can't honestly describe the beauty or the peace you see and feel. It's something you have to experience for yourself. 5 days in Honolulu and 6 others visiting Maui, Hilo, Kona and Kauai just weren't enough. I truly didn't want to leave. I felt like I had found MY place, it felt complete being there like I'd finally found Home, found where I belonged. Visiting the Lava fields during the day and watching the la

Ok folks, just put up a bare bones copy of my travel site. Only has about me, Aruba trip which shockingly is not done yet still more to add and I'm over 1000 words and Lord knows how many pictures and a bucket list page. Will be adding a booking.com link to every destination page I've been to when added. Looking for your honest opinions. Revamping the entire site www.dw-travels.com.Thank you.

Tis' the season for cold and white fluffy stuff on the East Coast. The skies have once again opened to bless us with snow.....that four letter word I love to hate. Though quite pretty it is a royal pain to shovel and heaven forbid it turns to ice then your driveway becomes a skating rink and you face plant into the pavement as I did last storm.Nature can be beautiful when it's not trying to kill you. On the schedule today at work but not one client has booked in as yet, so I'll just huddle unde

Honestly, when I started with WA my main interest was travel and I've got so side tracked from that, getting involved in so many other things I've let it fall to the wayside. I decided to try to get back on track. Finally started today getting my travel blog up and going. Changed my theme and working on articles. Would love to be a travel writer. Heading to Hawaii in a few weeks and want to write a huge article to submit to National Geographic. Yes, big leagues, heaven forbid I start small, lol

Completely loving this hexagonal baby blanket pattern. 5 skeins of fluffy yarn and a few hours is totally worth it to see the finished product. Working on 3 others in different colors.

Is it really better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all according to the saying? When you've truly known love and lose it, nothing else compares, no substitutions will do because you know what it feels like, you know what it is and you look for that in others.January 13th will be 8 years since I've lost the best thing that ever happened to me. The one I thought I'd spend forever with, the one who drove me so crazy at times I wanted to smother him with a pillow on occasion, th
