It’s important to appreciate your friends.

The best friends I’ve ever had live in Australia. I live in New York in the States. That’s why it’s so INCREDIBLY amazing when I get surprises from them. That is also why I felt it necessary to create a Blog post just acknowledging my friend Jess and how wonderful she is. I just did…

Everyone needs a Slinger.

A true friend is one who thinks you are a good egg  even if you are half-cracked. ~Author unknown Slinger is a ridiculous nickname to compliment mine; Bean.

Lately, I’ve witnessed people I know, as well as strangers who throw around these words that I live by or with. I’ve heard people label themselves as hippies for the wrong reasons. I’ve heard people use the word zen for the wrong reasons. I’ve heard people belittle my lifestyle and make it out to be so much less than it truly is.
