I bet you didn't know it's Negroni week? I didn't either! But once I found out AND since it's one of my favorite cocktails (tied with a Gimlet) I thought I would pass on the info as well as some bar inspiration to you! Negroni Week launched as a...

Hi sweet people. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. There has been some nasty weather in parts of the US this week, so if you happen to be in one of them, hopefully you are inside, warm and toasty. Watching the snow fall. Sipping a hot mug of something. With a...

Hi lovelies. As I write this, it's raining buckets. I have the fireplace going and am wearing the requisite rainy day attire of fuzzy socks and a big sweater. Not only is it Halloween, AND the San Francisco Giants Parade, but it's also my birthday weekend....
My birthday is in a couple of weeks. I decided to have friends over but not tell them it’s my birthday. I just wanted to bask in the glow of being around those who I hold nearest and dearest. Plus, I needed an excuse to have a party! The Food There is a local caterer...

After almost a 30-year lapse, this August I revisited the place of many idyllic childhood memories. Me and the kiddos rented a little house in East Hampton for a few weeks. The first half it was just us, the latter part friends joined. It was pure heaven in...
It's finally done! Let me show you around... Looking out from the kitchen doors to the gravel patio. We may add a barbeque later to the corner closest to the door. It's been stubbed with a gas and electric line, so it will be easy to add. The arbor is...
Well hi beauties. I have much to share with you. For starters, Luke graduated from high school last week. I held it together (for the most part) during the ceremony, but before and after...yikes, I should own stock in Kleenex. My second big news - and i...
Well hi you... Long time since last post, I know. Besides being incredibly busy at work (LOVE-ing my current projects!), this past month I've been biting my nails as the college letters arrived on a daily basis. I am thrilled to announce that our son Luke has made...
Hi to you! Things have been quite hectic around here lately! All good I'm happy to say. More later... As a follow-up to my last post - Donna's house sold right away! Yay! I recently received the following email from a reader: I love a simple white bed:...
