Gratitude Post – A Letter to My Daughter 13

My mom bought me a subscription to Oprah Magazine a few years back as a gift and in the July 2011 issue there is a photo by Richard Foulser that really spoke to me.  Along with the photo there was a quote by Marcel Proust. “Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; […]


Busy Weekend! 7

A quick post to tell you what I’ve been up to…. A wedding! My gorgeous sister-in-law, Kathryn, got married yesterday at a perfect, simple and elegant brunch wedding. My little one was the flower girl. And I was a very cold Maid of Honor so I wore this shawl the whole time and don’t think I […]

My New Camper! 18

Night in St Augustine at the Edgewater Inn 6

I’m back and I missed you! And I have a few photos of you from the Edgewater Inn.  We fell in love with this place. Now mind you, they just rebuilt the historic Bridge of Lions so there is a barge left where they are removing the temporary bridge but most of the view was […]
