The Things I’ve Been Loving

I’ve been walking around the house doing random things knowing very well I should be writing my blog. I mean, I’ve been thinking about it for months but haven’t made the time.

France, Spain and Italy – Our Honeymoon In Photos

  Paris exists to remind you that dreams are real.. It’s Sunday. The last day of June.  The sun is high in a clear blue sky.  After the oppressive 35 degree heat in Italy 2 days ago,  21 degrees had me pulling out a light jacket to wear when we stepped out for lunch.  We’re…

What I’m Loving – March Edition

It is a gorgeous sunny Saturday.  The sun streaming through my library window feels warm on my bare feet.  Merlin, my cat, is perched on the chair behind me and he nuzzles my neck seeking attention.  The Basil has flourished in the past week; it’s happy on the window sill. Once it’s big enough to…
