What’s Cookin’? – Dutch Door Fun Fold

My Mom came for an extended visit in May and after two weeks with us, she decided that she was ready to make the move from Arizona to Virginia and live with my husband and me.  I think it was the homecooked food that persuaded her!  She is always asking either "What's for dinner? or… Continue reading What’s Cookin’? – Dutch Door Fun Fold

Friends are Like Seashells…..

I am still on vacation at the beach....my happy place.  As much as I’d like to, I’m not walking on the beach (still in re-hab from ankle surgery), I would usually be collecting shells....I have them all over my house in glass jars from trips to Myrtle Beach, Key West, Clearwater Beach, and even from… Continue reading Friends are Like Seashells…..
