In my effort to get back to the basics, this is the first thing wrote in my original "introduction"


**I Pledge to do my best to work towards successfully meeting my goals for this year.
**I pledge to be kind to myself, to love and encourage myself, to have a sense of humor and to pick myself up when I fall, without castigating, berating or hating myself
**I pledge to surround myself with people who are positive and upbeat; who will love and encourage me. I will be there to love and encourage my friends as well.
**I pledge to set mini goals for myself so I am not overwhelmed and I will celebrate every success!
**I will find the joy in every day! I will go through my day with an attitude of gratitude for ALL the blessings in my life.

I have a passion for Renaissance faires and all things Celtic; I am a voracious reader(to put it mildly! *LOL*). I have a wildly eclectic taste in music, although I can usually be found listening to classical Celtic and New Age music. I enjoy doing various crafts and simply to cook and entertain. I am a tree hugger from way back and love nothing better than to be out in nature, preferably near the ocean or in the mountains.
