Day 15 – #100HappyDays Challenge Good morning! I’ve turned into one of those old people I use to notice nursing coffee at an all night diner after closing out the bars in my younger, wilder days which, of course, feels like yesterday. It’s a wild and wooly 6 a.m. and I’m sipping coffee at IHOP… Read More Anchors Away
Day 14 – #100HappyDay Challenge Hello Galveston! I’m leaving Houston behind for a week to inject some fun into my very solitary life. But before I get into that can I just say prepping for all this fun is hard work! Car serviced, check. Mani/pedi, check. Hair, check. Dresses, check. Shoes, check. House cleaned; check.… Read More The Start to A Spooktaculious Mexico Halloween Cruise
Day 13 – #100HappyDay Challenge My day is pretty full; work, my car appointment, pedicure, and, the most important task, packing! Yes, it’s time to pack for a 7 day cruise! To say I’m excited is an understatement. I booked this trip in August as a gift to myself when I turned 50.

I woke suddenly from a dream I can’t remember (up way too early – again), sat up, and a popular book from years ago… Read More What's Your Purpose?
Day 10 – #100HappyDay Challenge Coming home this afternoon when I opened the door I was instantly met with the fragrant scent of stargazers. They made me smile…. a great happiness moment to share.

Day 9 – #100HappyDay Challenge My search for soft easy food to enjoy has turned up chutney. There’s something comforting about a bubbling fruit chutney. Today I made an apple cranberry chutney – perfect for a fall morning. What’s wonderful about chutney is how simple it is to make, plus it makes a wonderful spread… Read More Making Chutney
Day 8 – #100HappyDay Challenge It’s 2:44 am. That’s a new day right? Sleep is eluding me. I finally got up, made a cup of tea in my favorite mug and curled up to watch This Is Us. A few happy things: Pukka ‘Womankind’ tea – a beautiful cranberry, rose and vanilla tea that turns… Read More 3 Things to Love
“Don’t lose yourself in the temporary.” I heard that quote earlier today and it struck a cord. How many times have I let the temporary chaos of the daily grind bury me in noise, making me lose sight of what’s really important?
