Too Hot!

Here in the North East we have been experiencing a major heat wave for 5 consecutive days of 100 degree temperatures.

If you are like me I want to wear light cool colors and plenty of skirts and dresses.

Love these looks

Beach Bag A Go Go!

Recently my daughter and I took a road trip to Rehobath Beach, and it is absolutely gorgeous!
It was difficult finding a parking space, so we drove around the quaint town looking for a parking lot ugh!
Finally one of the local's directed us to a parking which was $7 for the day. The area surrounding the lot was very rustic and the beach reminded me of all those childhood memories when my Mom and Dada would wake up at 3:00 am to prepare our picnic beach lunch, Fried Chicken sandwiches on white bread, potato salad, corn on the cob, and for dessert pound cake.

While eating my lunch I enjoyed watching my Dad swim into the ocean and across the waves, he was an excellent and strong swimmer, i wanted to be like him but a giant wave washed me ashore and I ended up with sand in all the wrong places.

Today I would like to honor my Dad's Birthday he would have been 93 yrs. old today. I miss him so much because he was a wonderful Dad!

I was so inspired by my trip to the beach that I went home and created these big beach bags which holds lot's of stuff!  Enjoy!

Moving Forward, New Beginnings

Last month I celebrated a birthday and I am so blessed to have the support of my family and friends.

I believe we make choices that feed our mindset with either positive or negative thoughts of aging.
My thoughts moving forward are to live a vibrant, healthy, and relevant life.

This year I have experienced so many life changing opportunities that have pursued me. I recently got accepted into a management program on my day job. I have experienced mentoring relationships with key business leaders within the corporattion, and my handbag business is expanding.

I would like to share with you three wisdom keys that have helped me:

1. Be kind and positive and watch the words that come out of your mouth.
2. Be a Giver!
3. Be Psalm 92:12-14 The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in   Lebanon. Those that be planted in the house of the lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;

Finding Your Tribe

The other day I began to think about life and who were my role models. I had a very good friend named Betty Golden that I met 20 years ago i...
