to my cozy little home on the web, filled with every bit of encouragement, love, hope, beautiful things and whatever I think you might enjoy. I know that most things can be fixed with one or all of the these…a hug, a snack, or a nap…so if you need any of those let me know and I’ll post some! Ha ha ha! Here for you as a sister, friend, aunt or mom, whatever it is that you need, I'll happily stand in that spot. I hope you find more than you are looking for, leaving inspired and recharged to tackle life at your best.

All the best of everything I can think of,



I remember hearing someone once say “expect the worst, you’ll never be disappointed.” My first reaction is to laugh at most things that people say, and I did that with this too…but then I thought about it and, well, that’s not very funny at all. It’s down right depressing! This got me thinking, what do […]

Top of the mornin’! As my father used to say, with his green eyes sparkling and huge grin. Then he’d take a drink of his coffee and crackle the newspaper straight. All heart treasures now. Sparkly green shamrock ones with gold glitter, actually. But St. Patrick’s day always reminds me of our family roots and […]

We all get “up-close and personal” accounts of others and their success on social media. It’s nearly overwhelming, we get SO much information and images on a single scroll that it’s easy to log off feeling worse than before. Sometimes we feel so overwhelmed that we don’t even want to try to live our own […]

I live in a area that doesn’t exactly have seasons, it’s always balmy and 72 here at the beach. And this is wonderful except that I love a cozy snow day filled with cookies baking in a warm oven. And the anticipation of all the Fall holidays when the leaves turn and sprinkle the lawns […]

We started with the show on Netflix, and then got the book…Marie Kondo has officially changed our lives. Ha ha ha! We are tidying up everything and it actually feels SO good! It’s surprising how much trash we had, 3 bags of expired boxes, sauces, spices, soup and canned beans for one. Or the clothes […]
