Pride and Prejudice 200th Anniversary!

For those of you who love you some Mr. Darcy. (hah!) You have a reason to pull out the Pride and Prejudice novels or DVDs. It's the 200th anniversary of Pride and Prejudice. This is the reason I have such a tremendous crush on Colin Firth. Ok, ok, but Colin aside, it is a wonderfully written book by the author, Jane Austen. I have such a love of her writing and characters that my shop 10 Camelia Way is inspired by all things Jane Austen.

Happy MLK Day!

The kids are happily off of school. We started the day with a pancake breakfast. Add fruits and whipped cream and you are in heaven. Then we headed off to the parade down by the waterfront. It's a  beautiful sunny day!

I have been reading Dr. Martin Luther King's "I Have A Dream" speech. I hope he can see that his dream was realized. That people of all races were standing side by side celebrating his dream. I am saddened because he knew that dream would come with the ultimate sacrifice but celebrate because his vision is now a reality.

People I Dig!

Hellooo peeps!

Hope you are having a wonderful start to the new year. Like most people I have been analyzing last year, especially when it comes to my business. How did it go? What worked? What didn't? How to apply lessons learned in 2013?

While doing this I came across a sweet heart of a lady named Leonie Dawson. She hails from Down Under. She is a wonderful, free creative spirit who has been extremely successful in business and she shares all her info through e-books or for free.

I've been getting advice from her blog and YouTube videos and I recently bought two of her workbooks – 2013 Create Your Incredible Year Calendar Workbooks – one for business and one for life for about $17.95 or you can buy each separately for $9.95. Pretty reasonable price I think.

She has a great part in the workbook about letting go of 2012. I didn't really think how important this would be. But writing it down and then saying goodbye to it, really did wonders for me. I know it may sound a bit cheesy but I'm telling you it works! You say to hell with the bad parts, bring on the good parts and lets go for it in 2013!

Leonie is quirky, freaking happy with her life and just absolutely a great soul to be in touch with. If you could use a dose of happy along with great advice you can visit her site

Hope you enjoy her as much as I do. Take a look at the workbooks below.
