Don't miss a thing!

Thanks, welcome to the club!

Reflections in the aftermath:

You know what they say about hindsight.



Hey there!  My name is Erika.  I'm a sister, a daughter, a friend, an artist.  I live in the quiet little home that I built for myself in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of upstate New York (that's nowhere near New York City.)  I spend my free time outside, horseback riding and rock climbing, traveling and doing any number of things that ease my mind and keep me inspired.  I look forward to sharing my story with you in the pages of this blog.

This month's pick from my bookshelf:


This is a must read for anyone wondering what it takes to decide to start living for yourself.  I purchased this book before even starting the planning process.  Dee's story about the trials of aging and deciding what you want out of life was truly inspiring.  You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wish it was longer.  I finished this book thinking, 'If she can do it, so can I.'  And 3 years later, I did!
