Once again


We all have our opinion and I’m going to share mine.  I’m so sick and angry with the repeated incidents of GUN VIOLENCE in the U.S.  We don’t need thoughts and prayers we need action through gun safety legislation.  The senseless killing of innocent people on such a regular basis (this time 19 children at school and two teachers) is something we can’t close our eyes to or begin to find normal… it’s not!  (and never will be)  I refuse to believe we have to settle for this.

Rollin' into the weekend!


Hope you enjoy your day.  This morning we picked the blush pink peonies in our garden & I can't think of a better way to begin the day!

Bringing the outdoors in always makes me happy.

Summery Blues



What does the color of blue make you think of?  Blueberries, waves, a robin's egg, sapphires, the planet Neptune.  You typically don't see many blue flowers but, there are a few: azure aster, bluebell, chicory, and forget-me- nots are the first few that come to my mind.

Taking some time to remember the 1 million people who have died from Covid-19.  I know we all want to turn the page but, for so many there is a special person missing.  A grandparent, a father, a mother, a sister, a best friend…. There’s no making sense of how some things end or the contrast of what each person has gone through.  However I find there is a a beauty and necessity in remembering the good moments and the special people who come in and out of our lives.  I don’t think you need to have experienced this loss first hand to acknowledge this has been a significant historical event and an emotional one for so many who weren’t ready to say goodbye.  You're not alone.
