Right Now...

My blog, recently, has been all about gratitude and pictures capturing my weeks.  

I love it BUT I miss actual "blogging" if you know what I mean.

My blog is essentially my on-line scrapbook....my keeper of memories...the way I share my life with the world....

At the same time, I love reading all of your stories and devouring my favorite blogs in return.  It is a true gift...

Life has been crazy busy (what else is new?)

So...right now....I shall update you and humor me as I post also pix of my inspiration and what makes up my passions in life
 
Still so thankful for our job security and flexible careers that allow us to spend so much time with our family

I have started the first book of THE Trilogy...yes...Fifty Shades of Grey (and I do think, it is as delicious as most people have been describing it)

I am trying to get back into the workout zone...I fell so far...nothing new for my life...my weight has always been a struggle
 
I am not sure about the whole Facebook timeline thing...I still love Facebook but I find it so hard to find info now with the new format...time...will....tell...are YOU buying the stock on Friday???? hmmmmm....
 
Real Estate is stressful...remind me to never do this again (that is until I have to downsize some day)...so hard to stay calm...unemotional AND NOT look at new homes...but I must
 
Lately, I have realized how life is changing for our family right now...in one short year, my stepson (the youngest of my stepchildren) will be going to college...and although Diana is so loud and energetic, there will be such an emptiness in our home.  I have helped to raise my stepchildren for the last 10 years of my life.  It has been the hardest thing I have ever had to do- the biggest sacrifice I have made.  It is hard to let go (even when they are not biologically yours) but I look back and know, I wouldn't change a thing.  I do believe, I made a difference in their lives and in return, I have received unconditional love.  It is very hard and rewarding all at once.

Preparing to buy our plants and such for our garden again this year- I want to stick with the same things we planted last year (even though Rob is objecting to the pumpkins- hey we got ONE last year!) So for now, it shall again be: Pumpkins, Zucchini, Cukes, Tomatoes and then my herbs on the deck which will be the basil, cilantro and mint- wahoo!

I have been on a Lilly Pulitzer kick...well my whole life right?  Well really bad as of late...and even worse?  I got my mom addicted! 

I am kinda devastated that this is the very last season of Bethenny...my husband is groaning as I type this...

At the same time, I cannot wait for Dance Moms to start back up...ahh...

and I cannot wait for corn on the cob...summer in general for that matter!  Bring it on!

I know..random...

so my inspiration?

Fresh flowers...peonies

Nantucket and MV

My Savior

The ocean...my salvation...

and some fun stuff....

The moldings at the Atlantis...SEAHORSES...pure bliss!

One of my favorite authors writes all of her stories based in Nantucket..her homeland...paradise

Patriotic Treat I will attempt soon

CORAL!

Lilly!


 Sleeping Beauty :) (almost 2 years ago)

and one of my favorite people of all time...

and my mantra...

I"m with you on the FB timeline. It's so annoying. I literally only go on and check what people have written to me and get off. I post my blog there and IG photos and that's it. I love that you have a Bo Sox hat on in your header pic. I'm a hug Bo Sox fan. My mom's family is all from the east coast and I just love it out there. I'm a west coast girl, live in Seattle but still have remained a true Bo Sox's fan my whole life. Happy to have found you. Hope you have a great weekend.
