Here are a few of my favorite pictures that Pierre has taken this summer of our house, our property, and the surrounding area…
The Coronavirus has hit everyone hard in different ways. For me, it stopped me in my tracks regarding travel. I had eleven weeks of international travel planned for 2020, all of which had to be cancelled. My job has radically changed as well, switching from traveling all over the United States conducting face-to-face trainings, to virtual trainings. In the beginning I felt stuck…not just stuck at home, per se, but stuck because I couldn’t really adventure anymore…or so I thought!
Very early on, I set up my “Camino CornaVirus Walking Challenge,” and that helped out A LOT! It got me out of the house every day, and it kept me active. As my life has changed over the last several months, I’ve tried especially hard to pay strong attention to the little silver linings or blessings that we sometime seem to miss in the hustle and bustle of our regular lives…
Does everything seem different, and does life feel uncertain at times…yes, but I’ve learned that I can still adventure and enjoy the summer, even though it’s much closer to home!
I wasn’t able to make it home for my birthday, because of my work schedule, so Pierre “sent flowers” to me! He sent the texts in the middle of the night, so I could see them right when I woke up! His sweet gesture set the tone for the rest of the day! It was a great day!

I’m always on the lookout for sunflowers, and I found these three stunning examples in Portugal.
