40/365 - Fishing on Pleasant Pond


When my son, Scott, was just 3 months old we bought our first home on Pleasant Pond in Wenham Ma. It was a small house...but it was home. We would walk to this small beach..it felt like it was our own private beach. And there was a hill behind the pond that lead into the woods..We used to take a walk up that hill and called it "Scott's Mountain". We sold the house when Scott was about 3 1/2 But It is fun to take a drive down to the pond every now and then and reminisce.

39/365 - Young Performer


It was 90 degrees in Northeastern Massachusetts today and even into the early evening. Went to Newburyport by the ocean and this young man was playing his violin. At this young age, he was delightful to listen to.

36/365 - Newport RI


My friend Mary and I left at 10:00 a.m. this morning heading down to Sheep Pasture in Easton MA. Never made it....we took a wrong turn and ended up in Newport RI....When I took the wrong turn we decided to continue on our "road trip". Unfortunately we left behind the 80 degree weather in MA and went in to the cool 50 degree weather by the water. All in all it was a fun day. Thanks Mary!

25/365 - Plum Island Sunset


“I had found a kind of serenity, a new maturity... I didn't feel better or stronger than anyone else but it seemed no longer important whether everyone loved me or not--more important now was for me to love them. Feeling that way turns your whole life around; living becomes the act of giving.”

14/365 - Party Dress


I am attending the Nordstrom's Grand Opening Gala at our local mall this month.
I found a sassy, chic, fun dress to wear.

Nordstroms holds a Grand Open Gala when ever they open a new store. It is a huge fundraiser at the Store with dinner, drinks, music and shopping. Nordstroms selects 3 non-profit organizations to donate the proceeds from this event. The Non-Profit Hospital that I work for and do fundraising for, is one of the recipients for this Opening. We are expectind about 1,000 people to attend...It Sounds like a fun fun evening.
