    A Name Is Powerful

Things like a charm bracelet, my cheerleader patch, and various bits of baby and toddler jewelry. My amazing friend, Jenny, is recreating it for me because over the decades, it became raggedy and beat up. While…

    First Flowers of 2023 Here at Home

    Along with daylight savings time, more sunshine, and warmer temperatures, the first flowers to bloom in our flower bed happened! Those brilliant reddish amaryllis blooms you see above are so pretty. These were here last year, but they’ve come to life again this year, and I couldn’t be happier about that.
