Simply BE...

Simply BE...well happy.  Something I've taken for granted many times in life.  How simple it is just to BE present, BE grateful, BE happy...many lessons in life have jolted me back into this state of BEing and many people have inspired me to BE there.

To call Kristina a best friend is an understatement for sure.  Our lives are parallel in so many ways, starting from childhood cheerleaders 25 years ago to the strong military spouses/Moms we are today.  There isn't anyone in my life who shares the same interests, lifestyle, and perspectives quite the way we do.  It's a very unique connection that has stayed strong all these years despite all the twists and turns life has provided...true Soulsistas.  We recently reconnected (Florida-Italy connection) over a phone conversation, catching up with all the goings on in our lives.  Then we come back to our soul searching conversations...the kind that really make you feel inspired.  Both of us are in the same place right now...on the verge of a move, verge of 40, and verge of a breakthrough!  Kristina's free spirit and sense of adventure I admire and relish in...I'm hoping I can continue to inspire her as she does me!  Our connection and friendship reminds me to BE happy!  It's a choice everyday and no matter what life brings it's the choice I want to make.

Our quest to keep connected through this blog is in hopes to bring us to new discoveries with ourselves and inspire others to join the journey!!  Soulsistasforreal

Why did I want to start a blog...............well inspiration

I mean I am inspired daily....... by the color of the sea (lucky me currently living right on the Mediterranean), the look in my daughter's eyes, many, many, bloggers, and mostly because of wonderful women in my life.  Many of those wonderful women are family that I aspire to live up to.  

But when it was decided to continue with this blog it was because I was, once again, inspired by a person that I consider family. I am so fortunate to have MANY friends in my life that I consider to have crossed the friend border and into family status.  Through this journey I hope to share experiences with some of these fabulous ladies, but there is one that stands out.  One that has been a cheerleader, a sounding board, a Soul Sista.   Tiffany and I met in high school and through the trials and tribulations of life managed to stay best friends, even though we have not lived in the same city for over 20 years!  But at this stage in our lives we feel we can connect even more by sharing stories here and hopefully inspiring others.

We want to inspire others, be the best we can, and live life to the fullest.   We relish in the success of those who are important to us and feel maybe others would also benefit in things we find to be fun, delicious, or inspiring, of course!

Will this just be a place for me and my friends/ family to hang out and chat, maybe, will it take us on a journey to become even closer Soul Sistas?  I hope so!

xo, Kristina
