Throwback Thursday – This Redhead

When my daughter was born, I remember one of the nurses saying “look at that red hair!” Her grandmother on her father’s side was a redhead so I wasn’t too surprised. As the doctor laid her on my belly, I looked at her and something told me it was going to be a wild ride….

Happy Trails

As the host for this year’s reunion of our Happy Trails tribe, I was facing some scheduling challenges, but it all just came together today. Woo Hoo! Each time we’re together, it’s like no time has passed in between. Dating back to our first times in Santa Cruz (a LONG time ago), we eat too…

TBT – I Love You

My daughter made me this card for my birthday last year. I’ll cherish it forever! We worked together for the summer and absolutely had a blast. I came into the office on my birthday to find this on my desk. Made me cry ❤️ You’re the best, Michele! With love from a grateful Mom.

Throwback Thursday

Cranky

Life

My brother wasn’t the kind of guy to buy presents for people. He hated shopping and would rather give someone money to buy what they wanted. I always teased him about that 🙂 For my birthday in 2010 he gave me this necklace, just a few months before he passed away. I remember when I…

The Only Kind of Drama I Want

Years ago when my son was visiting us in Tucson from Seattle, he named our sunsets “high drama.” I thought that was a perfect description. (He came in the summer … what was he thinking? LOL) This particular image was one I took that ranks near the top of my list of high drama sunsets….
