It’s hard for me to believe that we are in the last week of the first month of 2017 and it seems like a huge blur.   When I look back, I can’t figure out where the month has gone, and I also can’t figure out what I’ve done this past month, although I know […]

Sunday we celebrated “Friendsgiving” with a few friends.  One couple and their adorable children, plus the husband of a friend of ours.  She’s visiting her family and he was ‘home alone’, so we thought he would enjoy spending the day with us eating good food, laughing and playing games.   He felt that he would […]

I hear a lot about how ‘busy’ people are.    I’m unsure why- but it’s one of my little pet peeves-  I’ve asked myself why that is on more than one occasion and the one thing that comes to mind time and time again is because we’re all busy in various forms.    Rarely are […]

My best friends husband is a talented trumpet player. There is something about trumpet music that soothes my soul and has me forgetting about everything around me and thinking about what life would have been like back in the days when Jazz clubs were extremely popular in New Orleans. Granted, you still find them there, […]

A week from tomorrow, Marcel, myself and company will be taking a one week mini-break to a villa about two hours from where we live. To say I’m excited is the understatement of the year. Not only because I’ll be doing one of my favorite things- traveling, but because we’ll be doing it with my […]

As the evening draws on the last day of my ‘celebration month’-  I find myself very much in awe of the beauty in my life.    These sunflowers-  a gift I gave myself, because I love them so much and how they remind me of the importance of keeping my head facing the light-   and to […]

I woke up this morning to find an email from Starbucks that said-  Happy Birthday- your free birthday reward has been loaded to your card.    YAY!     Since I’m not in the country at the moment, and won’t be before my free treat expires- I decided to pass on the birthday love and share it with […]

If you’ve known me anytime at all- you know that my best friend’s husband has a side business as a DJ. They are both very talented when it comes to music- She sings, and has since we were children, and he’s a very accomplished trumpet player. The love of music they share was the brain […]

Some, if not most of you who read this space know that one of my best friends daughters are engaged and the wedding will take place next summer. It is one of those things that I’m very excited about- my first Southern wedding in a very long time (since moving), plus it’s extra special to […]
