Welcome to the blog. Today marks the official launch of SimplyVanessa.com. You may already be familiar with my other blog where I shared my adventures from our summer in France.
My family and I spent 10 glorious weeks in the South of France on a “mini-retirement”. This was a wonderful break for all of us. We are back in Toronto now feeling more refreshed and energized than ever…and a little jet-lagged.
I enjoyed blogging throughout the summer so much that I wanted to continue it. It is here that I will share stories of my family as well as all the other goings-on in my life.
This is the place where I intend to be creative, practice my writing, vent, laugh and share ideas with you, the readers. It’s also a place where I can hide from my family when they are driving me bonkers. I’ll introduce you to the players at another time.
Join me in my latest obsessions, my favourite books and movies, my attempt at fashion and my many new adventures. Or anything else I feel like blabbing about.
So with that, I offer up my motto (or words to live by):
LIVE – Live life to the fullest.
LEARN – Learn as much as you can and share it with others.
LOVE – Love the people around you.
LAUGH – Laugh a lot. It’s important to keep you young. More importantly, you should be able to laugh at yourself. Never take yourself too seriously!
I’m an honest and outspoken young woman (young because I stopped counting the year I turned 29). I tend to call a “spade a spade”. Or as some people have told me, I like to tell it like it is. I do have a bit of “foot in mouth” disease. You know the kind, where you talk before you think? Open mouth, insert foot. Don’t hold it against me
Come along for the ride – it’ll be fun!
