Easter Sunday

“kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see” – Mark Twain This past week has been very challenging for me, not only because of the social distancing from my family, but I’ve also been dealing with back pain. I have never experienced such pain. My heart goes out to…

Friday night take out

“we rise by lifting others” My day started with my morning walk with Anthony and Remy. The birds were chirping, and the sun was shining; a promise that the days will get better. Walks for me are very therapeutic. I clear my head and recharge for what the rest of the day will bring. These…

Sunday Morning Breakfast

“may your Sunday be filled with sunshine” Sunday mornings in my house are about preparing for Sunday dinner. This is a tradition I’ve enjoyed since I was a child. I’ve been able to continue this tradition with my children, and they all look forward to it. However, these recent Sundays have been very hard on…

Home Sweet Home

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…
