Welcome to the road less traveled! I’ve been following my heart and my passions since I can remember and 14 years ago!! I did just that when I took a chance and relocated from the North East (where I had spent most of my adult life prior) to the beautiful USVI. Long story short, island life just sucked me in… like the tide…and I’ve been riding that wave and calling the shores of St. Croix my home base ever since 2005.
Island life is not for everyone. For example, we don’t have many of the luxuries and comforts that ‘state-siders’ enjoy- the power goes out routinely, we rely on rain gutters to catch water in our cisterns, and the largest and only chain ‘store’ for shopping on island is an outdated Kmart. SMILE. 😊
Living on an island is like living off the beaten path…across the board! And it takes a sense of adventure, an open mind, and a great appreciation for mother nature in all her glory and fury, to make a go of it in the long term.
Having said that, the opportunity to carve out a personal and professional life, on a ruggedly beautiful rock in the middle of the Caribbean Sea is my dream come true and I’m living it in real time every single day!
Gratitude is my attitude! And I encourage all of you, who are peeking through this lens, into my world, to take a moment to appreciate yourself and to honor your soul. Are you living your best life? Is there something you have always dreamed of doing? What’s stopping you?!
NOW is the time to listen to your heart and follow your passions too!
Life is a gift. And I believe we are meant to live it! As fully and dynamically as we can. One day at a time.
It’s never too late to change it up, start over, or re-write your own story.
For true, as we say in St. Croix. Stay blessed! And thank you for following me on my journey!
