Summer Brights

I don’t always wear my heart on my sleeve but I do wear my thoughts on my tee.


Live the Life You’ve Always Dreamed Of


I always dreamed of being a writer.  Besides blog posts and columns, I write poetry, essays and short stories.   I keep looking for new ways to make my dreams come true.

What dreams do you have?  Are you working on making them come true?

I’m participating in Share-in-Style this week with the ever lovely Sacramento.  She inspires me with her style AND with the thoughtful posts she sometimes shares.  Our Share-in-Style prompt is “Summer” and nothing says summer to me more than summer brights.  I found this midi/maxi skirt at Goody’s and fell in love with it’s versatility.  I wore it here as a midi skirt.  Halfway through the day, I pulled it down into a maxi.  I love the versatility of the wide waistband that can be folded or not for differing lengths.  I like this style so much I have also bought one in black and one in a gray and black stripe.  What says “summer” to you?

Live your lemonade life,

A Girlfriend Getaway


Serendipity means, “the faculty or phenomenon of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for.”

Serendipity also means that when my hairstylist best friend asked the lady she was doing color on where she worked, it led to us discovering a place we’d never heard of before.  Before the appointment was over, we had reservations at Snug Hollow Farm Bed and Breakfast for lunch!

All this wonderful serendipity lead to a flavorful, home cooked vegetarian lunch on the screened porch…


…and relaxing walks around the grounds…


There were beautiful flowers all around…growing outside…and arranged in vases inside.  All in all it was a beautiful day that happened by chance.


It makes you wonder.  What is serendipity going to gift you with next?


What I’m wearing:  White top, retail on sale.  Pink shrug, Burlington Coat Factory.  Denim shorts, Walmart…I told you I was a “mart” girl!  Vintage pink flower pin.

Live your lemonade life!
