See you soon, Logan

“live for the moments you can’t put into words” For our last night in Florida, we decided to stay in and I would do the cooking. It is always bittersweet when I have to leave Logan. I wanted to make her something special. I made her shrimp scampi, garlic bread, and Logan’s favorite, cake batter…

Next Stop, Jupiter

“stay close to people who feel like sunshine” The morning started with Logan and I going for coffee and enjoying it outside. Spending quality time with Logan is priceless. It’s so hard when one of your children move away. When we got back to her apartment, we decided to sit by the pool and relax…

Ft Lauderdale

“travel not to escape life but for life not to escape you” Next stop – Ft. Lauderdale to visit Ronnie’s brother, Bobby. It’s always fun to see Bobby, he is such a hoot. We spent another relaxing day at the beach, Bobby made a delicious antipasto and Italian bread, perfect picky food by the beach….

A Perfect Day for the Beach

“let there be sunshine in your soul today” My favorite place to be is at the beach. When my children were younger, I took them most days in the summer. It was a place that they could run, scream, and play all day. Those days were the best! While I’m on vacation the beach is…

West Palm Beach – Day One

“part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you like” While Logan is at work, Ronnie and I start to explore the area where she lives. We start with breakfast at Howley’s, a delicious restaurant that Logan had taken me to when I visited her in August. The pancakes are to…

Sundays are for Family and Friends

“make today great” Today is one of those quiet Sundays. Allie and Jonathyn are both working, and Anthony is on a skiing trip. Isaiah will bring the girls, and since my niece Giana is on spring break, she will spend the day with us, I also invited my good friend Deby. I got up nice…

Saturday Morning with the Girls

“the best thing about memories is making them” Saturday mornings are always fun when the girls come over. Nyla always wants to bake with me when she comes over, so we agreed to make chocolate croissants. While I was preparing to bake, Nyla decided she wanted to play with Mia and Maliah, so they had…

Shrimp Scampi with a Twist

“believe in your own magic” Since Isaiah is between sports, I don’t have to pick up the girls, and only have Maliah on Thursdays. So, I started going through one room at a time, because before you know it I will be back to my normal schedule with the girls. While organizing, I am thinking…

Valentine’s Dinner

“love is friendship that has caught on fire” Every Valentine’s Day I would make my family a special dinner. Most of the food would be red. I always make the same roasted red pepper sauce over spaghetti and a red heart cake. This year I was sick, so I had to make it a week…

Dinner for Two

“love the life you live” When Ronnie realized it was just going to be the two of us tonight, he decided to make dinner. He went to Whole Foods on his way home from work and bought fish, ingredients for coleslaw, and purple and white yams. I had the pleasure of watching him make the…
