Hello, sweet friends…

I hope you are doing well…

Where did the time gone? Just yesterday it seems I was counting down to the New Year…

swish went January and just like that February has arrived…

While this month is associated primarily with Valentine’s Day, the journey of love…doesn’t stop there…

It’s the month where the ‘Random Acts of Kindness’ movement is held…

(encouraging us to do something for other people, randomly)

It’s also ‘International Friendship’ month…

and since it’s the month of Valentine’s Day…which is btw one of my favorite days

I’m thinking it just might be the perfect month to express a bit of extra sweetness…

Oh and one more thing before I go…It was so much fun Creating a new look in our living room (during the month of January)…extremely pleased with how this cozy yet elegant space turned out…

I can’t wait to have friends come for a visit…

Happy February!

    I spied your piano and wish we could play pianos together again. Those were what we have to refer to as “the good old days!” Amazing how many shows we put on and how easy it was to play together…

    Love your babies…

      Dear Becky oh how I miss you…and the good old days of playing the piano together. What a special treat that was all those years practicing then performing. I cherish those times. Happy February!

    I stumbled across your website via the Coastal Grandmother Aesthetic Facebook group. You give off such a positive and welcoming vibe, and I wanted to see what else you’re all about.

    Well, you are exactly who I aspire to be. We seem to have similar tastes and interests. I have an MS in Ed degree in Elementary / Early Childhood Education and spent 17 years in the classroom as a Reading Specialist. I have Yorkshire Terriers, I love to have tea parties (I thought I was the only one!) Our styles and even our organizational methods / closet designs are quite similar. It’s fascinating to me how alike we are. But you are way more awesome and put together than I am.

    Lately I’ve been feeling displaced in my own life. I have an autoimmune condition which has been rapidly progressed these past few years. Being immunocompromised I’ve had to shelter in place more than I’d like, which has made me feel disconnected from the world around me. My circumstances forced me into an unexpected (and unprepared) disability retirement. I wasn’t ready to abandon this profession, there was still so much work to be done. Retirement wasn’t something I was going to even consider for at least another 12-15 years. My life as I knew it changed without much warning. The aftermath of such events have been even more difficult to process than I ever imagined.

    I’ve been trying to figure out exactly who I am now. I miss the life I never got to live. It’s been an isolating existence to sit alone all day with these thoughts, and each passing day becomes more and more overwhelming.

    But today was different. Today you showed up in my world, albeit through the World Wide Web, but your presence, a simple internet interest group post, revealed your existence to my life. And this is what made all of the difference. Your words resonated with me, and in turn offered some kind of hope to my disparaging situation.

    I can’t explain it, all I know is I got a peek into your world and felt a kinetic energy which has filled me with hope. You have inspired me to move forward in ways which will help me start living the life I aspire to live. And I thank you for that.

      Dear Amy it is so nice to see you here today… Thank you for taking the time to write such a beautiful post. I am very humbled by your kind words. My heart breaks for you, and the struggles that you are going through… I hope that soon you will be better.
      I too am happy that we met… Looking forward to another chat.

      Take care, my sweet friend,
