The Dragon butter smugglers


Perhaps you’re saying “What?”, “Who are the the Dragon butter smugglers?”

It’s the name I’ve affectionately given my husband and I as we embark on our next adventure.

For the next 6 months, we will be enjoying half our time in Wales and half in London. And, if you’ve never tried it, Welsh Dragon butter is pretty scrumptious, so we’ll be making sure we bring plenty back to England on a regualr basis too!

Seriously though, I AM EXCITED! I am excited, beyond most things I’ve let myself be excited about in a long time. The retreat I held recently (my very first!) was exciting, and, there was an element of nervousness about it…(and, that’s for another time…) whereas, this, THIS is pure and utter blissful, no holds barred…my husband and I going on an adventure together.

The last time I can remember feeling this level of giddiness (and I do get giddy!), was when we set off on our trek, the one where we met, 6 years go, to Everest Base Camp.

It has been a long-held desire of mine to live by the sea. And now, yes right now, we are doing it, living it, with no guarantees or certainty where “it” will take us past this next 6 months. And, absolutely, that doesn’t matter, what matters is that we are stepping out together in the direction of our dreams. We are taking action and trusting that it will evolve beautifully, perfectly, for us.

Here’s a cutesy little photo I took this morning of my baking supplies that I’ve packed ready to go. I see myself baking (which I love), painting (which I love), learning to ride horses (which I don’t know if I love… yet… and I want to see) and being outside, on the beach, in the hills, exploring, with my wonderful huband, for the next 6 months. I’m also going to be writing about it, so if you’re interested to read more…please do watch this space (as they say).


I’ll leave you with a quote that perfectly describes the essence of my message here.

Life “rewards” our following our hearts, our joy, our bliss. We don’t have to know how, we can leave that bit up to life (thankfully!). All that matters is that we keep taking the steps, always in the direction of our dreams and the things that make our hearts sing!

“Follow your bliss. If you do follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while waiting for you, and the life you ought to be living is the one you are living. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in the field of your bliss, and they open the doors to you. I say, follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be. If you follow your bliss,
doors will open for you that wouldn’t have opened for anyone else.” Joseph Campbell

Til soon,

Love to you,
