Good GRIEF

Grief is a sneaky little sucker. It comes packing a rainbow of emotions ranging from neon bright to the darkest of dark. Grief is terribly uncomfortable. Any person who has experienced true grief I believe would agree and testify that it's a bizarre chain reaction experience.  Grief is weird because it gets all balled up… Continue reading Good GRIEF

California ramblings.

Palm trees make everything better! The shadow picturesque giant palm leaves drooping against a California back drop is dreamy. People ask me all the time, "where is Palos Verdes, California?"  This sporty bubble of a town is south of Hermosa and Manhattan Beach just above Redondo. It's in on a cliff I would say elevated… Continue reading California ramblings.

Plank-tober Fest (anniversary series)

Mexico Gains

Mr. Chicken Fry nailed it.  He booked us five prime time nights in a familiar, close to our hearts, sunny beach destination....Cancun, Mexico.  We share a deep love for clear ocean water and white sand beaches and Cancun was a perfect hop skip and jump from Dallas, Texas. We were greeted and treated like royalty… Continue reading Mexico Gains
