Rain, Rain, Go Away!

TGIF!  The heat finally broke…and now the rain.  For me, a welcome sight to be able to walk the beach in cooler weather.  I love the dark sky and the navy water…..the beach looks beautiful!  The cloudy days make me realize how much I do love the sun and that no matter how stormy things seem, the sun does Read more »

The Dog Days of Summer

Look who’s at the beach with us??  It’s so hot so I popped into to see the pooch….he’s resting and waiting to hear from you…call us! Read more »

Mama Bird and Me!

During this period of being home…almost ALL of the time, I have been sitting on my patio a lot.  I do calls, read, have coffee, whatever it may be, in the fresh air.  The other morning, I heard birds chirping away and saw what I thought was just a mess, on the seat under my table.  I move the stool and Read more »

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there, past, present and future.  There are mothers all around us, in many different forms and in everything we do. Those who have their own children, those who long to bear children.  There is no journey in life that is easy or without heartache but the thing I think we can Read more »

Yummy!!!  And worth the wait….

Today I ventured out to go food shopping…the line was not too bad and the weather was beautiful so it was a win, win.  Do you ever go to Trader Joe’s?  They have certain things that I love, especially the spicy jalapeño cheese and great fruits and veggies.  I try to follow a healthy diet but in this Read more »

56 Days and counting…

We’ve now been in self isolation for 8 weeks!  I don’t know about you but….I want out!  I miss everything and everyone.  It’s very lonely to do meetings with friends and family over video conferences.  I miss the feel of a great hug or the feel of a high five for a good job, etc.  I always Read more »

No Frills SuzanneG

Another silver lining of this pandemic is….you are really getting to see and know the striped down, no frills version of me.  Working from home and social distancing has enabled me to wear super casual clothes, little or no makeup and hair that’s styled minimally.  That being said, I hope that you can see Read more »

A Mad Scientist

This little crock pot never seizes to amaze me. I love to cook with it - it’s simple…if you have never used one, you just dump the ingredients in and 6-8 hours later, a masterpiece emerges!  By hour 5, or so, I think to myself- there is NO way this is going to work…and it’s always delicious!  I feel Read more »


I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday, mid week.  I don’t know where the time goes.  Not much to report here - I did go to the grocery store and am happy to report all other shoppers were masked and gloved, and staying away from one and other. I can’t wait for this to be over!!  My other takeaway Read more »

A little bunny…

We had a little visitor today, my nephew Joseph, who was hoping that the Easter bunny had left a few there early eggs to for…unfortunately for Joseph, and all of the kids, the egg hunt will have to wait for next year. My family’s Easter bunny used to “spill” his jelly beans & chocolate eggs, down the flight Read more »

Sending a Virtual Hug

Hi there…today is Good Friday and we are still doing our part to be together while apart.  Strange times in many ways…hopefully better days are ahead and maybe we will be together instead of apart.  Thinking of you and praying for you.  And remember, most importantly, you are not alone.  Read more »

The Stitch Sitch

I love to do crafty things, painting, baking, and needlepoint.  My grandmother was great with needlework and was an amazing knitter. I have several of her baby sweaters ready and waiting for a little person to wear them. My own mother made my siblings and me our Christmas stockings, which we still use as adults!  Read more »

Wandering minds

With all of the world slowing down, we have a lot of time on our hands to let our minds wander.  There is no easy part to this journey, for you and your family, or me.  There is worry, like what if this never happens?  There are heartaches - I can’t imagine the incredibly difficult decisions you have, and Read more »

That Was Then…

3/31 is a big day in our family.  It’s my oldest nephew’s birthday.  Peter is special for a million reasons but honestly, he just a really good person.  He’s a little bummed because birthdays are always an “event” at my mom’s house.  Each birthday person gets to chose their birthday party theme Read more »

My Office For One

Hi!  As with all of us, my normal routine is all out of whack.  The upside is that I can be outside with fresh flowers, but it’s so quiet!  Usually I enjoy working from home but in light of us trying to “flatten the curve” of the virus, my whole office is working from their homes.  It’s quiet Read more »

There always a silver lining

With all of the things happening in the world right now, we are all experiencing disruptions and anxieties.  I had been inside all day and grabbed my EarPods to go for a walk….much to my frustration the batteries were dead.  I went on ahead and walked over to the high school.  I live in one of the Read more »

Families Come is Many Ways and Relationships

I was looking through a closet, trying to find something and came across a box that my best friend Jennifer had given me at her bridal luncheon, over 20 years ago…..the inside of the box says “Distance and time cannot alter a friendship”.  I don’t think any truer words have been written!  We’ve been Read more »

Time to stop and smell the flowers!!

I often am thinking about the adoption process.  No matter what side of the equation you are on, neither side is easy.  As I was worrying about someone liking me, my life, my profile etc, I looked up and saw a beautiful floral display.  I took it as a sign from God to have faith and let things work out the way Read more »
