Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. ♡ I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ♡ More than likely as you read this post… I will be on the road to my annual women’s retreat. Surprisingly this will mark the 12th year attending this particular retreat.  My how the years go by. There are many reasons why I plan these retreat days.  It’s a time of quiet contemplation, and getting refreshed ~ physically, mentally, and spiritually.  Of course the most important one being the experience of adventure. Because, to me the greatest adventure in life is the adventure of going within.  This weekend away allows me the luxury, and opportunity to return back to the task at hand and meet my insides again….sigh… Well….so how was your January?

Anything exciting happening… I’ve missed you…  so, I thought I’d drop a quick post….that’s some of the fun of being a free spirit, and blogger, you can just sort of pop in whenever the mood strikes…and hope that there’s someone out there. .. (grin) Well, okay I’ve got to share an aha moment I recently had. L.I.F.E. and all that it brings  is an exciting adventure.

( or never) It might even be that we have been thinking that NOTHING … Continue reading
