~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, The Day Is Don Photo from here How is it that Slim Aarons so perfectly captures the life I lead now with photos that are decades old? I guess this just means pool parties and chic gatherings are timeless! I had a truly fabulous time at my belated birthday...

a special place filled with beloved activities, memories with loved ones, or favorite foods. I was captivated by these double exposure pictures and started thinking about the people, places, and things that are always in the back of my mind and keep me going towards the end of a long week. I...

in school, playing on the sidewalk, or being forced to solicit business for their family's shops (by the way, kids can be quite forceful in following up and trying to coerce you into shops). It really made me wonder what I, a foreigner and tourist, could do to help. It was impossible to shop...

I love being married, having a home to decorate, taking on increased responsibility at work, and thinking about how I will make a life for my future family. But with age, comes more accountability. Housing prices, credit card payments, and home maintenance have also filled my thoughts. Is it...

to my Amazon Kindle and am rediscovering my love for books (anything from "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" to the Millenium series). One of my favorite books is "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho. It is a simply written and beautiful book that really hits home now as I try to determine and fulfill...
