Packaging Pumpkins

Hope you’ve all had a fabulous Halloween! Zoë brought cheer to those around her (and hopefully good luck) by transforming herself into a Rainbow Unicorn.  This was the first year I did not go trick or treating with her.

It’s hot, sticky and raining right now. I’m staring at a gorgeous pic of a beautiful flower to try and brighten my day.  It’s reminding me of the fun weekend Zoë and I had together.  Zoë is an aspiring artist and fashion designer, so we try to go to places and spots of inspiration for… Continue reading Out and About with Zoë: Wesport,MA

Enjoy the beach, but don’t forget….

As I meditatively stack the smooth flat rocks and driftwood I gathered at the beach yesterday, I try my best to ready myself for the week ahead.

But first, let’s go back to the beach….My friends Alicia, Justin, Jordyn and Logan moved down to Jamestown, RI from… Continue reading Enjoy the beach, but don’t forget….
