Me pointing to the Canal St. Metro Sign in NYC

Hey, I’m Antoinette!

I started this blog because, well, I’ve learned so much in the past couple of months (years?) that I thought I’d share some of what I know, what I’ve seen, and what I hope to experience- as playfully and as courageously as possible. I’ve also noticed quite a few people *cough* myself, not taking advantage of the truly amazing life I’ve been given. Through the help of a very wise person, I realized that I was holding my present hostage for a future that may or may not happen so I decided to flip the script.

I love art & design, good food, adventure, affordable yet stylish travel, and exploring the many different sights and sounds of the world…all while holding down a full-time job. God is my life. Good chicken wings bring tears to my eyes and I am rarely interested in looking at an issue from only one perspective. I like green tea, thinking, 1-hour dramas, being playful, hot chocolate, blankets, root beer, solving problems, blue cheese, warm socks, taking my own photographs, and freedom. Oh, and variety. I like variety, too!
