TRAVEL: Sunny South Florida

Memorial Day weekend is known as the "unofficial" start of summer, but after my recent trip to Sunny South Florida, I feel like summer is officially upon us.

Raleigh weather has been unpredictable and rainy, so it was nice to get some guaranteed warm weather  in West Palm Beach and soak up a few rays while I was there. 

Many of you know that I'm from Florida, so my frequent trips are filled with family and friends. 

This trip was to celebrate my little sister's graduation.  She's so cute. 

However, as always - I have to add my favorite places to the post... Just in case you find yourself vacationing there too!

PGA National: great pool, great spa ... book a massage and relax!

Panana Hattie's is a family tradition.  We've been dining here for years.  The view is just as great as the view!

Hop on a trolley in Downtown WPB!  It's fun, free, and one of my favorite pastimes.

The ice cream at Sloan's is unbeatable.  Going is always a fun experience.

Linnie at Large turns 1!

Exactly one year ago I started a project that changed my life for the better. was born!

It was a combination of things that led to the start of this website. 

Believe it or not, it was actually an idea I had for years!  I just didn't know how to conceptualize it.  

But sure enough, my idea combined with the encouragement from a couple of friends had me running home one night after dinner and creating the site you see today.

It's amazing what good fortune this little blog has brought to me.  (I've come a long way since my very first post!)  See it {here}

It's been a form of therapy, networking, and collaboration.

THANK YOU to all of my blog contributors who have shared their beautiful posts with me and others throughout this past year.

I'm excited to see what the next 12 months will bring!

A dream realized.

I remember when I was a little girl living in Los Angeles.  

My Mom went to Atlanta for business and sent a postcard to me with this picture:

She told me to keep the dream alive.

A true promoter of positivity, Dr. King changed a world filled with hate through the power of love. 

On this day, I thought it would be nice to share some of my favorite quotes by Dr. King.

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.

We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.

A lie cannot live. 

Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.

I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear. 

In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends. 

Now, I have one question for you. 
How are you going to change the world for the better?

INSPIRED: power of positive thinking

This is, without a doubt, my motto in life. 

It's pretty amazing how accurate this statement is.  

I truly believe in the "law of attraction" - that positive thoughts attract positive things to your life.  

So no matter what kind of day you're having, remember one thing: think positive!
