Seriously.... Do You Do This? Saturdays are usually my silly play days.  On any given Saturday, I drive 30 miles to patron one of my favorite coffee shops in Southern Oregon, Mellelo Coffee Roasters.  Then I visit some cool boutiques and chit chat with some of my girlfriends there.  Then, after a...

Happy St. Peacock Day!  A few months ago, I turned off the noise at home and tuned in to silence for awhile.  I began to hear a sweeter melody playing in the background, as greener thoughts emerged in the playground of my mind.  I found myself reading, wondering and swimming in a sea of creativit...

It's a blue sky day somewhere in the world today!  And while it can't be a blue sky day everywhere... we can certainly remind ourselves what it looks like.  I snapped this pic a few weeks ago while visiting Southern California.  I was sitting in my car in a mall parking lot, and I looked up throu...

My Lucky Charms - They're Magically Delicious.  I've been lucky enough to have some wonderful mentors in my life.  Each one has had a unique influence in shaping who I am today and leaving a valuable imprint on my soul.  With St. Patrick's Day around the corner, I thought it apropos to pay a litt...
