Yellowstone, Badlands and Irma

I’m warning you now…this is a LONG post!  How can I describe two life-changing events with just a few words and pictures?  I may look carefree in the picture below but inside I was worried! Where do I start relating the events of the past 10 days?  I suppose I should start back about 5 …

Custom Phone Case

Happy almost Labor Day weekend!  Several of you have commented on my phone case.  That’s a picture of my “babies”  taken during a family vacation this summer.  Purchased from a great company with quick service and nice quality case.  I smile every time that I use my phone and see those cuties!  Click the link …

Sunshine, Roof Rat and Dressing Room Diaries

The sun is finally shining and the world in SW Florida is drying out.  The flooding we have seen is nothing compared to the devastation in Houston and their surrounding areas.  During times like this, the good people of our land come out to help.  It confirms my belief that caring people abound and enormously …

Cabin Fever Comfort

  I am so sick of this constant rain!  Cabin fever!  Fooling around with the Boomerang app so you know I am bored!  How did Noah’s wife survive all of those days on the ark?   Comfy stay inside clothes from Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale but probably full price now.         Links:     …

Rain, Life and Fashion

Hurricane Harvey slammed into the Texas coast last night and I feel for those residents!  It’s been many years since southwest Florida has taken a direct hit but I remember the experience well.  Boarding up the house, deciding to leave or stay, listening to the howling wind, days without electricity and living with hot humid …

Run to Talbot’s for Summer Fun

RUN, don’t walk to Talbots this week before all of their new cute summer line is gone!  It has a tropical feel that will be just right for my upcoming trip to my happy place for my birthday, South Seas Island Resort on Captiva Island.  I am also going on a family cruise later this …

New Reads in 2017

I belong to two different book clubs and this New Year my reading has been limited to the books chosen by those two groups. The first book I read was The Nix by Nathan Hill.  This seems to be a book you either love or hate.  I have spoken to no one who is in …

Spring Shopping at the Loft and Talbot’s

Our few days of winter Florida weather are finally over.  I got to wear sweaters two days in a row and put on sweats and socks in the evening to watch TV.  As a Floridian, I can say good riddance!  The sun is shining and it’s 80 degrees outside.  The sunshine and a sale announcement from …

Windstar Cruises: Retirement Trip

As most of you know, I retired the end of April, 2016 and had wanted to take a retirement vacation.  After searching, comparing and convincing the Colonel that a small, boutique cruise ship would be perfect, we were off on January 5, 2017.  I love cruises and have been on several big ships but the …
