Heartsick for Houston

Heartsick for Houston

As you all know Jamie goes to Rice University in Houston. I remember when she first told me she was applying there. What? Where? TEXAS? NOOOO. My diabolical plan to dissuade her involved visiting the campus in the middle of July. It didn’t work. She […]

Martha’s Vineyard R&R Part 2

The ferry to Martha’s Vineyard is a quick jaunt to the island just thirty minutes to the official start of the road trip portion of our R&R adventure. After checking into our island digs, the Vineyard Mansion, (highly recommend) we headed out to explore the island.  We studied […]

There Are No Words

There Are No Words

A few weeks ago my friend Jane’s daughter was in a terrible car crash in Tahoe.  I was in Hawaii when I found out.  I felt helpless.  After a few days in the intensive care unit and multiple tests they let her go, but not […]

Paradise Found

This has been the longest period of time between posts for my fledging blog, I hope you stayed with me.  As life is prone to do, it got busy and messy.  The first few months of this year has brought joy but also great sorrow (for another […]
