Bubba’s Best Friend

Bubba has a BEST Friend! Meet SIMBA! He’s our neighbor’s dog. They are inseparable when together…and just so stinkin’ cute in their own ways. There’s the sturdy, calmness of Bubbster: He exists with almost a “Zen” quality at times: Just a total relaxer if there ever was one: As opposed to the spunky – almost […]

Springtime Begins

I hesitate to even speak of Springtime as most of my New England relatives deal with yet more snow! but…. there are absolutely beautiful signs of Spring happening around here. First, there’s the arrival of Martha Stewart’s April/Springtime/Easter magazine edition: Which I happily got to enjoy reading while sitting at the park as the bulldog roamed […]

Randomness 2015 – Series #1

Um, so you may have noticed there’s not a lot of posting going on here at the blog this year. I assure you though, there is more posting happening on other social media platforms and hope you will join me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and Google+. I’m finding that finding the time to post has […]


Aaahh this boy!! My youngest Grandson – my hubby’s “mini-me”. He is in-a-word just AWESOME! He keeps us all so very entertained with his constant chatter, ideas, expressions and love. He has such incredible self-expression and self-confidence and oh my gosh I hope he never loses these parts of himself. I hope he never finds […]

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays from me and my crew…yep this is us. We don’t seem to take those lovely family pics – which is why I fit in here oh-so-well!   We all have our qwerks, our unique abilities, our likes and dislikes, (the inability to stand still for a photo being one of them) and I […]

Bubba’s Wordless Wednesday

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

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Day at Disney

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 […]

Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!! I hope everyone will be able to spend some time with loved ones today….family….friends…both. Pops and I don’t usually do anything big on Valentine’s Day – just being together exchanging cards (often homemade) is special enough for us – plus I’m kinda that person who doesn’t really “love” to go out […]

Happy Friday

Here’s to wishing everyone a very Happy Friday and a  joyous weekend. I’m sharing this “Friday” photo to join in on Kim Klassen’s Friday Finds. If you aren’t familiar with Kim Klassen and love taking photographs, then visiting her site will be an amazing treat for you!! Her vision is simply beautiful and her ability […]

Happy Easter

Happy Holidays!

Wishing everyone the joys of the season!! Needless to say, our Christmas cards went out a bit late this year, but here they are in a digital format. Season’s Greetings! Another year of memories encompassing all emotions has passed. This year, our lives have felt the losses of dear loved ones and known the joys […]

Halloween Picture Fun

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 […]

Party at the Anderson’s

Ready for some fabulous party photos?? Well, not to say my photos are fabulous, but what I was photographing certainly was! I hope you can see what I mean from these shots. (I’m trying to shoot only in manual mode lately, so, please, be kind.) Our friends Mickie and Gibson certainly know how to throw […]

Wordless Wednesday – Beach Train

We had a fabulous day taking the Roaring Camp Railroad train to the Santa Cruz Beach and Boardwalk and back. If you’re in the area, I absolutely recommend doing this!

Wordless Wednesday – Memory Lane

See the beautiful bride above? That’s my Aunt Ellen (she’s also my Godmother). This past weekend, her daughter Amanda (my cousin) got married in a gorgeous ceremony in North Carolina.
