Hola, Jolene Navarro checking in from Central California. Yes, I have left my Texas Hill Country to start the year and my 50th birthday with a little adventure. My husband and I are on a road trip from Carmel by the Sea, Big Sur, Castle Hearst then up to San Fransico. We are halfway through our itinerary.
Lunch at Nepenthe (tel. 1 831 667 2345; www.nepenthebigsur.com), an indoor-outdoor restaurant perched 800 feet above the sea and famous for its views. It was raining so we sat inside, behind a wall of glass.
The next day we hiked the Point Lobos State Reserve. Here you can see the power of the ocean collide with the strength earth made up of stone. It was breathtaking.
Today we will be heading to Hearst Castle.
I’m also celebrating the release of my ninth published book, The Texan’s Twins, which hit the top twenty in Publishers weekly. I feel I’m dreaming with my eyes wide open.
So 2018 is a bit of a milestone for me. The big 50!
Right now I’m living in the soundtrack of the Greatest Showman. Have you seen the movie? It’s inspiring, especially if you have a creative mindset. I downloaded the soundtrack as soon as I got home. THIS IS ME. Is one of my favorites: Look out because here I come. I’m not scared to be seen, I make no apologies. This me!
As children of God, we should not hide who he has made us to be.
So go see the movie, sing along with the soundtrack, take an adventure and read a good book. Enjoy life.
How do you celebrate milestones?
