New Year, New Journey…


Happy New Year, 2019! everyone. I hope that 2018 was kind to you and your loved ones. 2018 definitely brought new experiences for me. At the beginning of 2018, I started my year of with lots of dog related events, gatherings and shopping for Laurent, my Frenchie that was part of the Atkinson family since December 2017 and Saint, my Mini Beagle that joined the family in May 2018. Never did I imagine that I would be a proud Mom to 2 Intelligent, Adorable and Energetic Furkids. Laurent is now 1yr and 3mths while Saint is 9mths old as of 1st of January 2019. They grow up too fast!


Middle of the year till New Year’s Eve 2019, I’ve been extremely busy with work and family especially Mom. I started to make working out a part of my routine, my form of solitude. I now have two forms of solitude – Driving and Working Out which makes me happy. At the same time, I did “spring cleaning” by removing toxic elements from my life.


I’m signing off this post by wishing everyone another great year ahead in 2019!! Let’s surround ourselves with Good Vibes as life’s too short to be living with doubts or negative thoughts.

The Journey Begins…

Welcome! to La Bella Vita which means, “A Beautiful Life…” I decided to name my new blog just that, because I’ve gone through life finding the beauty in everything – people, environment, situations, experiences and much, much more. Life is truly beautiful (smukke – beautiful in Danish) if you take the time to realize it.

It’s been a long time since I last blog, years in fact. But, because my passion is sharing my knowledge and life experiences, I’ve decided to share my journey once again. Currently, besides spending time with loved ones, working hard on my empire, spending time with my 2 lovely furkids – Laurent the Frenchie and Saint the Mini Beagle, I workout at the gym and it’s my second solitude besides driving. I feel that working out not only helps me clear my mind but, it also helps me to stay grounded and fit to take on new challenges as they come.
