My word


Did you pick a word?  Back in January, resolution time, I picked a word that I wanted to define 2015.  My word was “Enrich.”  I wanted to focus time on energy enriching my life, my kids’ lives and my community too.  And I wasn’t talking about money, although money helps.  No, what I was thinking […]

I always remember the ones that get away.  The second hand items that I don’t have room in the car for, the beauties that need just too much work, the treasures that are priced just a bit too high for my liking.  I remember them and pine for them and continuously hunt for them so […]

Beach I only managed to spend a short amount of time at the beach in California so I stuck to the nearby Huntington area and it has everything you’d want.  A pier, waves fit to surf on, sandy beach, volleyball nets, good eats and loads of sunshine.  It was only a 15 min drive to where […]

Costa Mesa – A More Relaxed California

Avenue of the Arts Wynham

Access and Navigation I recently had the pleasure of visiting Costa Mesa, California and at first I was having heart palpitations thinking I’d have to fly into LAX.  The worst part of traveling is dealing with airports – they’re so big and so full of people and I never know where I need to be. […]
