Happy Holidays!

I hope you’ve been well over the holiday season. My husband and I wound up sick a few days after Thanksgiving. He had the flu and I had a cold. Unfortunately, my cold stuck around for a little over a week, and my husband’s flu kept for three weeks. But, we’re better now. The above video is from a Christmas […]

Goals and Challenges!

I think it’s great to make goals in life. Goals give us hope and purpose, challenges and failures, and always keep us going. And what better time to list personal goals than a new year, especially after this one. This year was a tough one for many. I can honestly say that although it was challenging, it wasn’t the worst […]

End Of A Mad Year

We are approaching the end of a year. It was an emotional and physical roller coaster for all of us. Hopefully, we can find the positive in all the negative that’s been out there. Each day, no matter what troubles us in our lives, we have something to be grateful for. For one, I’m always grateful to God for giving […]

But there’s so much to consider over the autumn months: Reflection, Hobbies, Senses, and Giving.

Marching Into March

Holidays Are Here With Much Good Cheer!

Hey Lovelies, I’m sorry I haven’t posted about Tuscany. With the holiday season upon us, I’ve been busy with Holiday newsletter, gifts, and cookies…and watching the Chicago Bears!

I hope those in the U.S. had a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving. I’m sorry I haven’t been around much.
