Virginia & Then Some

So, I have returned from the US after visiting family & I already miss it dearly. In fact, I should say them; all the family and friends I met, and the experiences we shared.

I've always wanted to visit the US. I've had this notion set in my head for as long as I can remember of blue skies casting different hues at sunset and long stretches of fields & endless rivers. Though I didn't find ALL of that, I found another side of my family I wasn't all too familiar with. They say 'blood is thicker than water' and that is exactly what I found... my heart is overjoyed right this very moment. Though I am glad to be back in the craziness of my London life & family here who I missed though my trip to the US, spending time with family there was like I never left home...

As I like to say: 'It is not the place but the people you are with that make you call it home.'

My good ness, I'm such a family-orientated person!
Of course I will definitely be going back!

As for the rest of my summer... we'll see.

love & light, always...♥

A Beautiful Year... (so far)

It has been an absolutely beautiful year so far with so many good things coming my way. No amount of 'thank yous' will suffice to express my gratitude to God for the first half of this year! I was deeply touched by my last nursing placement which was on an intensive care unit. The kindness shown to me was overwhelming and the amount I learnt from this placement, not just about Nursing but an essence of life will always be in my heart. This has definitely been an inspiring, insightful placement for me and has helped shaped my career path in nursing. One experience I will never forget; it pushed me to my limit and for that I am thankful!

I've also managed to see my favourite band, Hanson, SIX TIMES this year! I've met not only the band but some amazing people/fans who made this experience an unforgettable one! Here are just a few pictures (I've come to find, I'd rather watch and listen to the music than take pictures) from the February show 'Meet Me In The Middle' and the 'London 5of5' concert series! Enjoy :)

I leave for the US (Virgina) tomorrow. For the first time I will touch down on American soil! Ha! A mixture of feelings are running through my mind as I have no idea what to expect. It will be my first time flying alone too... here's hoping all runs smoothly!

love & light...♥
