Happy Mother’s Day

Are you celebrating? My daughter and her fiancee are coming to our house to make brunch for my mom and me. All I had to do was set the table. Later in the day, we’ll head out to visit Tom’s mom with that side of the family. I also did what I usually do to […]

For the Love of Green

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Do you celebrate? Parades? Special foods? I’d love to hear. I’ve never paid much attention to St. Patrick’s Day, but when I did my DNA recently I discovered I’m 1/3 Irish! To celebrate I’m sharing a little St. Patrick’s Day love via my love of all things green. I’m looking forward […]

Thanksgiving Tables

Are you thinking about Thanksgiving yet? Since the leaves around here have started changing, and the fall temps seem to have arrived to stay, I’ve got Thanksgiving on my mind. Thanksgiving tables to be exact. For our table this year, I know a couple of things for sure. One, that I’ll be using my vintage […]

What’s Going On at Our House and Some Christmas Favorites

Happy December! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and are enjoying the start to the holiday season. I’m sharing this photo from our living room last year because, as you may know if we’re connected on Instagram or Facebook, we’re undergoing some renovations at our house. Last month we had the popcorn ceilings removed […]

I hope you all had a wonderful New Year. Our celebration was quiet. Very quiet. As in we stayed home and watched football and neither of us made it to midnight. We did have a New Year’s Eve lunch at a favorite restaurant, where I couldn’t help but sneak a pic of their gorgeous dome. My […]

White Holiday Flowers

Confession: I haven’t done a bit of Christmas decorating yet. I only got all the Fall/Thanksgiving things put away last night. And technically this post is about Thanksgiving flowers, but I’m calling them holiday flowers to make myself feel better. White flowers are my favorite, so when I was buying flowers for our Thanksgiving table I decided […]

The Happiest of Holidays to You

Wishing you health, happiness, and all the peace of the season.

Christmas at Kansas City’s Union Station

Grant took the train home from St. Louis for Thanksgiving and he said it was so neat to walk from the train and through Union Station all decorated for Christmas. Actually I’m sure he didn’t use the word neat. He probably used sweet or sick to describe it. If you have a teenage boy, you know what […]

Thanksgiving Table

Happy Thanksgiving to those of you reading in the US. I hope you’re enjoying this holiday week. My parents, sister, and brother-in-law are all in from Florida and we’re enjoying a lot of fun family times. In between I’m planning menus, running to the grocery store, and getting ready for the big day. I’m sure all of […]
