Hopping into Spring Break

Published on April 9, 2013

Tweet As y’all know, I LOVE holidays, and Easter is my favorite – I think it’s the colors and all the cuteness. This year was a real milestone for us, as we have now started attending a church that we really like. We decided to make this shift from non practicing to practicing Christian behavior […]

Published on March 9, 2012

Tweet . . You may recall that Barrie and I went to the LAArtShow Premiere Opening Party awhile back.

Thank goodness for the very rich…

Published on March 13, 2009

Tweet I got a postcard in the mail this week that made me think about so many wonderful things in Los Angeles that get taken for granted. It seems to me the au courant attitude toward the very rich has been outwardly hostile. In my work I sometimes hear negative comments like “must be nice” […]

Tweet …it occurred to the perfect Husband and I that we haven’t yet had a party in our home that was a grown up cocktail party since the Critter was born.
