All Things Pink!

      I have a confession to make, I love the color pink! I’ve always been attracted to this gorgeous color. No matter what shade, I find this color to be so beautiful and a symbol of femininity. Strawberry season has come to a close but there’s lots and lots to purchase at your […]

Enjoying Summer Harvest

      I love summer. Especially this part of the summer when the farmer’s markets come alive with lots of fresh produce. My dad is an avid gardener and has a cute little vegetable garden in his backyard. Gardening is his therapy.  His release to actually relax and get some exercise.  We all have our hobbies […]
