My front garden making me happy… The second half of May is under way…what a trip how time is flying…hope you all are having a lovely Spring (or Autumn, depending on where you are)… What an interesting story about Andre Leon Talley – for those of you who don’t know, he was the right hand man to Anna Wintour at…

Impatient for our house to come up, but loving watching our late spring flowers give us their final show… here are some things I’ve been reading I thought I’d share (and of course, something to boogie to at the end…): Life better once I hit 50, they claim? Six years to go, I’ll tell you if that’s true when I…

I finally got to see Wonder Woman!!! While I had to watch it on TV at home via Amazon Prime, it was one of the biggest heartbreaks for me not to be able to see it at the theater when it first came out. My sistas in your 40’s know what it’s like to be part of the Lynda Carter…

This is our mural downstairs in a little nook area outside of the bedroom that would have been for our little one. Being the basement and being beach bums ourselves, the ocean concept was an easy one, so I got some inspirations from some cartoon pictures and went to town with a black sharpie, then coloring those in with some…
