Being in Tahoe was exactly what I needed. To get away from the hustle and bustle for a bit and be one with nature. To slow down and appreciate life. To count my blessings and just breathe — It’s amazing how nature makes us do all that!
The log cabin we were in was not only absolutely gorgeous inside, but the views we had of the woods from the balcony, and from the floor to ceiling windows in the kitchen was so picturesque, like out of a storybook, it took my breathe away!
The beauty of it all; nature, the trees, the smell of wood burning, the bonfires, marshmallows and the incredibly beautiful snow fall. It was so magical, the snow — covering every inch of the land. This pristine white cloud-like fluff, untouched, pure, timeless, like heaven’s touch on earth. Cold as it was there, somehow it only seemed to warm my heart and soul, and made me believe even more in all the amazing things this life has to offer! It’s moments like these that makes you appreciate the little things, rejuvinates you and adds that much needed zest to your life — like food for the soul. It brought me back home feeling refreshed, recharged and ready to take on the world!

There’s something about a road trip that always gets me excited — especially when it’s out of the blue and a spur of the moment kinda thing! I was invited to Tahoe months ago, but with my jam packed schedule lately, I didn’t think I could make it. Some people find it crazy, but I’ve become the type of person that just goes with the flow. It makes life so much easier, less stressful and so much more fun! Plus, like a friend of mine recently said to me which I love, “The universe is my homeboy.” It’s like, amazing things just happen, and God / The Universe / The Supreme Power, or what ever you wish to call it, has my back!
So I’ve come to believe, if I’m meant to do something or be somewhere — things will work it’s way out. And guess what? That’s exactly what happened! A couple of days before the trip, not only did my schedule clear, but a good friend of mine called out of the blue and I was convinced to go! The four/five hour drive with my people, pass like a heartbeat, and I even got to stop and experience for my very first time, the amazing SoMa Street Food Park. I probably walked the entire park more than fours times since the menu at every food truck looked so good (remember I told you I was a foodie?) and the libra in me just couldn’t make up her mind as to what to eat. So what did I do? Asked my friend to choose for me, and they got the best of everything, HA! Yes, I know — I can be terribly indecisive, but all the food choices seemed so delicious and I knew we wouldn’t go wrong either way!

There’s something about being in leather and an all black outfit that makes a person feel like a bad-ass. That and kick-ass red lipstick! I’m not sure which one, but I do know that this outfit definitely made me feel like I could take on the world, and trust me, I definitely needed it with the crazy week I’ve had.
