Living For The Moment

Spending time with my aunt and cousins at Chautauqua Institution was such an uplifting experience, and it was wonderful to get to catch up with everyone.

We walked down memory lane and enjoyed reliving some of the wonderful times we had there and when we got to the Bell Tower it was almost sunset and we watched and reminisced from the pier.

My cousin Karen is a teacher and an artist, and this photo really captured her free spirit.

Celebrating Diversity

Women come in every shape, size and color - that's what makes each of us unique.


This Lifestylist has been having an amazing week - I've been traveling though Western PA and NY working but also getting to know a lot of interesting people and businesses.

It seems like there is never enough time in the day. I stumble on to something that interests me, but I know I need to keep going or I'll never make it to where I need to be that evening.

Today I know that I needed to be somewhere, but when I came upon things like a Farmers Market in Westfield NY I had to stop and I didn't want to leave. When trying to come up with the word that described why I was drawn to places like this it was hard to choose one, but there is just a special feeling that allows you to live in the moment instead of worrying about yesterday or tomorrow.

I think this was one of my favorite photos from today, and it says what I felt better than words can. When I think about Every Woman, this pretty much sums it up. No matter where we live, who we worship and what we believe in, underneath we are all the same.
