Bubba’s Wordless Wednesday

Wordless Wednesday fun….with my favorite photo model! The ultimate relaxer: Enjoy,

Keurig 2.0 LOVE!

As luck would have it (and I’m so happy it did) I was invited to a Keurig breakfast during BlogHer14. Besides sharing a delicious breakfast with other beautiful bloggers, all of us that were invited also received the new Keurig 2.0 K550 Brewing System to enjoy and review if we should so choose. YES, for […]

My favorite site to purchase gently used children’s clothing (while raising money to support schools in need) Schoola has a new program called #GivingStyle ready for all you fabulous parents to participate in. I’m so excited about this and all the Schoola programs! This amazing company is growing and currently has 3,000 schools that they’re helping.  What does Schoola […]

Flowers by The Bouqs

When I was at BlogHer14 (in what seems like forever ago now) I was introduced to this amazing flower company called the Bouqs at the convention expo. Now I don’t know about you, but I seem to send a lot of flowers to family and friends throughout the year. Maybe it’s because I live so […]

Yosemite Fun Photos

Happy Friday everyone!! I just realized that I never posted some photos from our last trip to Yosemite – which was actually a few months ago. So, I thought for some Friday fun, I’d post some here: We brought Bubba with us on this last trip…and took a few little hikes on the valley floor […]

Still trying to hang on to Summer a bit here, how about you? If you are too, and are interested in trying a healthier frozen summer treat, then you should give Ruby Rocket’s popsicles a shot. These tasty frozen pops are are different than other popsicles as they’re made with a mix of both fruits and […]

Our Little Scottish Dancer

We have another star in our family. Westly, at age 5 (almost 6) already has a love of the stage. We knew he had a love of dance with his previous tap performances for family and friends. And now we know he has the Scottish Dancing Bug!! I’m sure you can’t help but notice how […]

Mr & Mrs Llaneza

I had the great pleasure of taking photographs for my lovely friends Jeff & Leilani’s wedding on Maui August 5, 2014. No, I am not a wedding photographer, but she had faith in me and I just couldn’t resist – especially since I knew the day would be gorgeous…well, because as you can see, Jeff […]

Back to Schoola Shopping

I mentioned in a recent post how I’m working with the website Schoola, an online shop dedicated to recycling brand-name children’s clothing. Schoola collects, organizes and then resells this used clothing giving 40% of the proceeds back to schools in need. Well, I decided to give this online site a try and see how easy could it be […]

Maui Fun

So, the Maui fun continues!! I’m so happy we came a few days before the wedding so I would have a little time to relax and have fun before the “photographer” pressure begins. Here’s how our days are going so far: Wake up, have a cup of tea and head out on the “morning walk” […]

Adopting a School in Harlem with Schoola

I probably don’t do this enough, but I’d like to take this time to use my blog as a medium to do good in the world. Right before BlogHer began, I was approached by Schoola to help with their “20 Days of School” Adopt-a-School campaign. What is Schoola you ask? Schoola is an online shop dedicated to recycling […]

Returning to Maui

Ahhh, Maui! We’re back…after visiting together 20 years ago! We came here the first summer I met Pops. Back then, he was still teaching so we mainly traveled in the summertime and that first summer I made my first ever trip to Hawaii – visiting Oahu and Maui with him. That first trip, 20 years ago, […]

Bikin’ in Healdsburg and Sonoma

Last week, we headed up to Healdsburg in Sonoma County to join some friends for a couple of days of wine country fun – which included a gorgeous 30 mile bike ride through the area! Part of our motivation for choosing this time of year to all get together was to celebrate the birthdays of […]

Sea Bakin’ Seaweed Snacks

Filed under Lita's Full Blog, Vegan Products

Are you a fan of seaweed snacks? You know, those flat sheets you buy in little packs that you can much like chips, or wrap pre-cooked rice in and snack away on. This past school year, these snacks were one of the few items that the kids at my Grandson’s pre-school were allowed to bring […]

Cruisin’ Day 3

Day 3 of our cruise was supposed to be a stop in Oregon…unfortunately, the waters in the harbor were too rough for us to dock. Fortunately, there’s lots of playing to be done on the ship….and playing is something that these 3 guys are really good at! AND also lots of lounging and swimming to […]

Cruisin’ Day 2

On to Day 2 of our Cruise…actually, this is so much fun posting weeks later, not that it’s been fun being under the weather, but it’s fun re-living our cruise again now through these photos. Day 2 began, well, with food of course…but then we were on to checking out more of the ship – […]

Family Cruisin’

Hello!!! I’m back…well, at least I hope so. Where’ve I been…well, in a nutshell – sick, on a cruise, touring Vancouver Island and well, then sick again. Alas, I’m hopefully on the mend now…fingers crossed. At least well enough to take the time to view all my trip photographs and to start posting about our […]

DNA Skincare

Filed under Lita's Full Blog, Vegan Products

Ok, so first off, I need to mention that I was not in any way asked to write this post. In fact, I asked DNA Skincare if it was okay if I shared my love of their products on my blog. So, you can be sure that I was not in any way motivated to […]

for 45 Years

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, […]

Meatless Monday – Martha Style

I found this recipe in the April edition of Martha Stewart’s Living Magazine. It appears there (and on her website) almost exactly as I post it below – the one exception is that I’ve “veganized” it by using vegan parmesan cheese. This recipe had me at “one-pan”….well, and oreccehiette and probably olives too! Doesn’t it just look […]

Recent Reads

For a change of pace, I thought I’d share some of the recent books I’ve read – with a small review/recommendation of each. No worries, I promise not to share too much about each story as I wouldn’t want to ruin these tales for anyone! (FYI I’m trying out a new proofreading service –  Grammarly […]

Baseball Season Begins

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 […]

Revisiting Myanmar

Filed under Lita's Full Blog, Philosophies, Travels & Photos

One of my favorite things to do, when I have the time (which is not often enough), is re-playing and re-editing photos I’ve taken in the past. This week, I decided to take a look again at some of the photos I took (and posted on Flickr) when we were in Myanmar. I then chose […]

Friday Fun – iPhone pics week of Feb 28

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 […]
