Wanderlusting: Bon Voyage MDI

“One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood.” ~ Lucius Annaeus Seneca Breakfast in Bar Harbor Tuesday dawned so incredibly bittersweet. It was my last day in Maine and I had to say good-bye to my Mer-twin despite not wanting too. Shakespeare really did get it right! Parting really is such sweet ….


Wanderlusting: Fort Knox and The Penobscot Narrows Observatory

“Architecture is to be regarded by us with the most serious thought. We may live without her, and worship without her, but we cannot remember without her.” John Ruskin Monday Monday dawned dreary, raining in the morning. We took our time getting ready and then went to a diner for breakfast which is maybe ten minutes from where Tiffany lives. ….

Wanderlusting: Bass Harbor and Sailing

It is not the ship so much as the skillful sailing that assures the prosperous voyage. George William Curtis Sunday Sunday morning dawned with plans of an early morning sail.

Happy Birthday, Ankhor You!

I literally have no words for all the love I have received and the day is only half over! Sarah over at LifewithLilRed posted this beautiful piece wishing me a Happy Birthday and I had to reblog it. I am so blessed to count her in my circle of friends. She always makes me laugh until I cry (craughing!), and ….

What Do I Wear: California Vibes

The beach is definitely where I feel most at home. It’s my oxygen. I forget how much I need it sometimes when I’m away working. Behati Prinsloo I am ALL about beach fashion, with Memorial Day, the unofficial kickoff to summer, behind us, days in the sun are here! If my previous What DO I Wear?!?! Column didn’t give you an ….

Aging into Self-Confidence

“Let us never know what old age is. Let us know the happiness time brings, not count the years.” Ausonius I don’t know many people who get excited about aging. Birthdays, yes. That number that changes each year, no. Yet, there are some great benefits that come with . No not the grey hair or the wrinkles. But inner wisdom ….
