For 45 years I was blessed to have my Memere in my life. Not a moment goes by since her passing last week that I am not grateful for this. Though our worlds went in very separate directions as I grew to adulthood, our lives will forever be intrinsically connected if, for no other reason than, […]
This year we have both monkeys playing baseball – which means we’ll be getting tons of field time – and I’ll be getting tons of photos!! Here are some from week #1′s games: Hunter is playing AA ball this year. I’m not sure I can get over how very grown-up he looks already!! Westly is […]
Here are a few photos snapped with my iPhone this week: Tried a new Japanese place near work for some tasty veggie sushi!! Blush Raw Bar – I’ll definitely be going back for more (I love the mint on the top of the roll)!! We got some rain (finally) this week, so this bulldog showed […]
Seriously, I LOVE Disney….not as much as I love the two handsome guys above, but, truly, I LOVE it A LOT!!! (and I might add, that I don’t even pretend to understand those who don’t…I mean what’s wrong with having some fun with our imaginations – we ALL can use that!) So, during this past […]
Crazy as it may seem, 20 years ago today, I met the man of my dreams. Me, on a weekend jaunt up to the Mendocino area (with my friend Sherry from work) to check out the area, hike and play tourists (neither one of us being native Californians). Jimi, on a winter surf trek to […]
This Thanksgiving, Pops, myself and the whole crew went to Yosemite for a few days. Needless to say the views were amazing – I simply LOVE this park! The days were cool – with a nice chill in the air! The air was super clear – making for a great time to snap some photos! […]
Last week, Pops & I went up to Tahoe for a quick Fall visit. Pops had purchased one of those special 2 night hotel deals on TravelZoo for a nice little lakeview room on the South shore. The weather was chilly, but the sun was shining and the days were gorgeous. As you look down […]
So, lately I’ve been a little bit obsessed with cycling. Well, maybe not a little bit…but rather a big bit! Years ago, Pops and I used to ride a tandem together – ride a whole lot actually – as in over 1,000 miles one year. We also took a bike tour and rode across Italy […]
Last week Pops and I took a mini trip down to Malibu and the Central Coast of CA (more on those stops later), so finding out today’s word for Susannah Conway’s August Break 2013 is “HOME” seems so appropriate. Returning home means we’re back with our little sweet potato – BUBBA! love this little stinker!
Ready for day 11 of Susannah Conway’s August Break 2013! The prompt today is PLAY!! Something Bubba is always ready for!! I think everyone needs a Frenchie to play ball with!
Here we are at Day 4 of Susannah Conway’s August Break 2013 and the word for the day is LOVE! AND who doesn’t know how much I LOVE this little French wonder boy?!?! I have so many goofy names for him it would be hard to fit them all in here…but the all-time favorite (and one […]
Yes, Life is GOOD – and very, very busy (both at home and at work)!! For fun, this past weekend, we went down to the little central California town of Cayucos to see a movie showing of our friend Sam’s latest documentary. What documentary you may ask? Well, this one: Sam’s latest documentary tells the […]
Have you missed me?? WOW, I’ve missed blogging!! Sorry I’ve been away so much and, truly, I don’t see that changing much until after the holidays…sorry!! A quick check-in… Yes, our Florida trip was AMAZING and I have tons of photos to go through still and to share: Now we’re getting ready to leave in […]
We made it to Florida – Pops, Libby, Robert, Hunter, Westly and I!! I’m so excited that we are all here!! We’re staying in Lake Buena Vista near Disney Village…er…well, it’s now called Disney Marketplace. This is my first time visiting Kissimmee on vacation!! I mean I did go to High School here, and my […]
In case you’ve missed my Facebook obsession with using PicMonkey to create spooky Halloween photos, I thought I’d share them here. I seriously could spend all day creating these – well, if I had all day. But, you don’t need all day because you can create them quickly too! Even Bubba got in on the […]
On the one hand, it’s super exciting…on the other, how did time fly by so fast!! Not to dwell on that, here’s what made his 4th birthday super fun! First, the bounce house – um, more correctly the CARS bounce house! A tasty lunch with friends: Some Pinata action: Next event…your big brother playing “Happy […]
