Sew Much Fun

Hello WP! Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤️ Well, belated. Valentine’s Day was fun! But before I go into it I wanted to talk embroidery. I smashed through a lot of sewing this week, and I started on my 2021 sewing journal that I mentioned last post. The journal is a different beast of a project compared…

Thanksgiving 2020

Sober October Journal- day 24

Christmas in NYC 2019

Forty-three

Hello WordPressland! I am in an insanely good mood for a Wednesday. A snowy one at that. The snowfall out my window this morning is picture perfect, with those slow falling fluffy flakes. Looks like a dream. So yeah, my birthday! Officially, I am IN my forties, 43. Crazy, right? I am in my forties…

Travel Journal- Celebrity Equinox Port- Tortola

Hello WordPressphere!! This is our third day at a port stop in a row, our fifth day of our cruise. Today we docked at 7AM-5PM in beautiful Tortola, the largest of the British Virgin Islands.

Vacation Journal- Fort Lauderdale

Hello WordPressers! I can’t believe I am already here typing out my vacation journal.  My mind is still on island time and my legs still have not found the land (woo! wobbly!).  We went on a fantastic trip down the Caribbean on a cruise.  Before I talk about this cruise, which I will in my…
