{Snapshot of My Summer…}

Frozen cocktails were exquisitely flowing this Summer…

Lunch on the Bay was always delightful…

Spent a weekend at the beautiful Loews Resort….

Being at this resort made you actually feel as though you were in Bali or some other such exotic paradise island…

My sister, the girl’s and I had a complete BLAST at Disney…

Had a super fab time on vacation with my Bestie and her two sons…

I answered to the sweet call of the Ocean every chance I could…

I lived to watch my nieces and nephew at play…

My Summer started at the beach and…sigh…ended at the beach.  

I hope, my darlings, your Summer was as tranquil and as delicious as mine.  xoxo

{My Holiday weekend in food…}

Al fresco dining…nothing puts me in a better mood than great friends, good food, and people watching.

Baked Brie cheese and fig sauce…yummilicious!!!

Nothing says “I love you” like a friend baking you a deep dish cookie … LOVE YOU IRMA!!!

Do you feel it? Can you sense it? I smell Spring in the air and for that I am wonderfully thankful.  Hard to believe that we’re already in March. Spring makes me feel giddy, gleeful, and OVER-THE-TOP inspired. I grow my hopes and dreams in a Petri dish all Winter long and give birth to them in the Spring.

 Ahhhh! Glorious Spring.  It’s not too cold, not too hot, but juuuuust right! It’s a whispered hint of a passionate filled Summer to come.  Yes, Spring is definitely my favorite season.

What’s your favorite season?

Wishing for the beach…

I want to be here, alone with my thoughts, with a few good books and a couple of great mags.  I would send out cute post cards that would say, “Wish you were here” and write a few thank you notes that are way overdue.  I would unplug and disconnect. Lay low and resurface later.   I would play in the waves and dwindle the hours away.   Ahh! To be at the beach…

Wordless Wednesday

Summer’s End

As a whisper of a breeze gently caresses my hair on this beautiful end-of-Summer day, I realize that it is time to step away from the soothing waves of the beach and step back into the pages of my real life.

Writing was becoming increasingly difficult as the Summer months approached and I soon found myself running dry on inspiration.  At that point I realized that it was time for a Summer sabbatical, away from writing, so that I can refresh, renew and regroup.  As timing would have it, my family was visiting for the Summer and what a perfect time that would be to take off from it all and spend some much needed time with the “familia”.

Now everyone’s packed up and gone and we have the place to ourselves again.  My fingers have rested enough and perhaps I have regenerated enough inspiration brain cells to start writing again. “Baby steps”, I tell myself. 

Hope everyone had a GREAT Summer! Wishing you an amazing Labor Day weekend. =)
