little black casual dress

Little Black Casual Dress

This year has undoubtedly been the most casual one of my entire life. In fact, I would go so far as to say this little black casual dress is one of the dressiest things I’ve worn since March. Good thing I am the queen of smart casual! I must admit […]

Feeling Put Out

Feeling Put Out | Thankful For New Mercies

Wouldn’t it be great if every single day was puppies and rainbows? I can remember my babies looking up with wide eyes as they asked, “Why can’t every day be my birthday?” To which I explained if every day was a birthday, then birthdays just wouldn’t feel special. I guess […]

53 Birthdays - Reflecting On The Seasons

53 Birthdays | Reflecting On The Seasons

Birthdays are interesting things…a time when we celebrate and we’re celebrated for just being born. This week I turned 53, which means I am well-entrenched into my fifth decade. While I thoroughly enjoyed my day of pampering and attention, I’ve come to the stage of life where each new year […]

Be The Real Thing| My Trip To World Of Coke

Recently, I made the pilgrimage to The World Of Coke in downtown Atlanta. We southern folks are crazy about our Coke! This place has been on my bucket list for years and it was time to make some family memories. After viewing the museum of all-things-Coke I am now double-sure […]

Casual Black Jumper Dress

As I sit here typing this post on my new-to-me coach I can finally say I feel settled-in after two months of limbo life. My husband and I have been busy whipping our little place into shape…our “American” home for the next twelve months in Florida. So, it seems only […]

Making Memories | Our Mountain Vacation

We’ve spent the last week making memories in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Doing all the things I only dreamed of a few short months ago…fresh air, mountain streams, kids at play and don’t even get me started on the peaches! I’ve always enjoyed our mountain vacations…scattered out […]

Find Purpose In The Process

Find Purpose In The Process | 6 Steps

We’re heading up to the Carolina mountains tomorrow to have some family time and get away from the Florida heat. In true Bowdoin fashion, we’ll be off bright and early; stopping only when our stomachs or the bathroom calls. I guess you could say we’re get-there-and get-it-done kind of people…we’ll […]

using food to mourn covid losses

Are We Turning To Food To Mourn A Stolen Summer?

We all enjoyed the memes about overeating and weight that circulated regularly throughout the quarantine season. It’s not surprising that many of us surrendered to the draw of food when we were forced to sit at home day after day. After all, we’re often most tempted by food when we’re […]

July 4th Memory Roundup

July 4th Memory Roundup

I’ve always been the sappy one in the family, I’m the one who drags everyone out to celebrate holiday observances. I love crowds and togetherness. I just like to be “in the mix”; especially, after spending years out of the country during most major holidays. But then there’s 2020, the […]

Time For A Red Outfit

I’ve been back in the US for about two and a half weeks now and things are just starting to settle into a groove. However, that doesn’t mean that I have managed to adjust my schedule to this hemisphere. When I’m in Asia, I live my life a day ahead […]

Lipstick and Face masks

I am back in the US of A and I am oh-so-glad to be here! I made the journey without any hiccups and I was thrilled to ride poor man’s business all the way or “three seats to myself” for those of you who may not be familiar with the […]
