Everyone gets pumped up about blooms and blossoms this time of year. Don’t get me wrong… I love to see the first bulbs poking up their pretty heads, but I don’t think I will ever tire of watching chubby little robin red breast hop and scurry around the lawn in search of worms and dryer lint. This in itself is [...]

Outfits, party planning tips, hair styles, recipes …everything!  People would compliment me on my choices but I would not reveal where I found them. Well, it looks like the jig is up!

Wings of Change

A wise person once said to me (of course they were quoting some previous wise-guy) that the only thing that we can be certain of in life is change.
