Heard the saying, “One day, in retrospect, the years of struggle will strike you as the most beautiful.”?

Well, today is that day!

Mariposa Learns to Write Again

I want to write again.
I need to write again.
So here I am finding myself trying to write again.
This place has always been my comfort for years now. And lately I find myself reading old posts and I can't help but smile and be proud of myself. Wow. I have been through a lot and I have achieved a lot. So many things just to be grateful for. In a way, this blog had been a memoir of Mariposa.
Then I have this light bulb moment. If I want to write again, I write about my life and make a memoir. Well, sort of! Yet, I am so inclined to write through  my own fiction. As they say, it is easier to get to the truth by not claiming that you are speaking it. For there are some things that can be said in fiction that can never be said in a memoir. So here, I will attempt to put down all the good things I ought to have done...and try to leave out the bad ones I did do well.
Reading through my posts here you may discover that I never had any fixed aim before my eyes and that my system (for the lack of better word) has been to glide away unconcernedly on the stream of life, trusting to the wind wherever it led.

After all these are not the memoirs of an empress, nor of a queen. These are memoirs of another kind.

Home Makeover

It's the new year! And we all want to have a new look. For my case, I want a home makeover.
Yes, you read it right. I want to give my home a new look for this an acceptable cost of course! So just exactly how do I do that?

I can opt for full renovation, which can be very pricey. I can opt for changing the color of the entire, which is still pricey. Or I can just to some facelifts like taking care of the house interior.

So I tried to make some research on house interior repainting and got to Hingham Massachusetts painters which allowed me learn a lot about interior painting at an economical cost. I admit it was quite educational for me and for one, I learned that letting the professionals do the work make not necessarily spell huge cost but rather can be economical and can make you save some money in the long run not to mention being able to keep some standard and quality of work done.

So...that's it. I am giving my home some facelifts. I am checking on some palettes over the weekend. I plan to make the whole interior versatile in a way that a few change of curtains, and flowers and vases would allow me to change the look of my home interior all year round...since there is no way I can change the hues several times a year, you know!

Needless to say, I am very excited! It feels like shopping for some makeups and going to the salon for have my hair and nails done. Haha, I know it is quite an analogy but my vanity always gets extended to my abode and my car. That is how I roll. ***wink

Happy new year guys!

Party With The Nifties

I have been wanting for months now to start blogging again.
But what do I blog about? I have nothing to say.
So today, I am trying to overcome this sill 'when you have nothing to say syndrome' just to get me going. Just to keep my finger busy...and I will keep hitting the keyboard with whatever nonsense excuse there is to talk about. Ha!

While no doubt the holiday season is keeping everyone in a rush...I on the other hand seem to slowly find my balance, and hopefully I get to have that full rest before Christmas! Last weekend was fun, I had a great time with the girls, and I promise I am going to blog about each of them! Yup, soon!

These are snapshots of the fun times we had...

Good food. Good wine. Great friends. Indeed, I am blessed.
