The Things We Keep
Halfway through January, I’m still renewing {my word for 2015} the decor around my home. I don’t want to call it decluttering exactly, because it's more like streamlining and rearranging what I already have.  But as I'm renewing, I'm finding that the things...

I'll Be Dreaming of You This Christmas
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been dreaming of a warm Christmas. The past few weeks in Florida have been downright cold with lows in the 40s at night, and the temperature struggling to reach the 60s during the day.  I don’t care much for this kind of wea...

Breaking with Tradition
I was in St. Augustine a few weeks ago, celebrating yet another Thanksgiving in the place that has become my family’s tradition.  More than 25 years ago when we were new arrivals to Florida, my mother proposed that we get away instead of staying home wishin...

The Code of Sweet Sisterhood
I recently discovered that I’ve been under secret video surveillance in my own home. By my seven-year-old niece Devon.  I opened up the Photo Booth program on my laptop to see that she’s created 41 movies, complete with special effects and backgrounds. Abou...

Your Presence is Requested
Since I finished my six-week cooking course, I’ve been thinking about inviting a fearless adventurer {I mean guest} to sample my newly acquired culinary skills. I thought of the only person who would eat it even if he didn’t like it. Who would tell me it wa...

Adoring the Gift and the Giver
For my birthday a few weeks ago, my sister let my niece and nephew choose the gifts they wanted to give me instead of tagging their names onto gifts she bought for me. My niece let it slip that they were going birthday-present-hunting, so I couldn’t wait to...
