Making our happy contagious

Last night's dinner party was probably one the best family holidays to date... and to top to off, it was also the first time that I prepared the Thanksgiving meal. I wanted to do it right, where even the silk flowers seemed to serve a purpose, so I headed to Target for all my decorating needs and Whole Foods for the rest. Having recently accepted an organic lifestyle, conversation swelled over the handmade pommes puree with Celtic sea salt, decadent bite-sized dessert options, the giant stalk of choux de brussels and a freakishly cool Buddha's Hand citron that sat center of attention at the dining table. It felt pretty magical. 

Hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving!

When life gives you lemons... add Patron

Yesterday's climax was hell-bent in every conceivable way, but even as I framed the scope of persuasive language, I'm grateful for silver-linings and unfathomably small miracles. During the course of this picture-taking calamity, I (in retrospect) remorsefully set my clutch on top of the truck and then proceeded to drive off only to remember this ill-constructed act an hour later. So there I am, set deep in the valley of the shadows of horror while driving back to the scene of the crime... where of course, the clutch had turned Houdini and magically disappeared.

But the long and short of it is that when I finally got home, a welcomed voice on the answering machine said they had my belongings safe and sound... minus the cash that had been removed during its prior abduction. So thank you Jessica for finding it, driving 60 miles out of your way so that I could retrieve it, and for saving me unwarranted amounts of angst. And in a sigh of reprieve and raw contentment, I've come …

Historic Home Flood GoFundMe

Any donation you can make is appreciated. If you are unable to donate, you can still help by sharing this story with your friends and family. Thank you so very much.
Less than a year ago, I became a homeowner of a beautiful, old Victorian built in 1870. A dream come true but recently a nightmare. This was a milestone in my life... and yet now something I'm asking anyone that can, to please help save it from repeated flooding and water damage. Unaware this was a past issue, I'm faced with devastating restoration costs in order to maintain the preservation and integrity of my home's internal and external structure. 
This past week, we received significant amounts of rainfall and the NWS issued flash flooding in this area. Because of untreated damage over the years before I lived here, rainfall continues to pour down/through parts of the roof and pipes as ground water surges in, flooding the inside of my home with 18-24 inches of water.
Winter temperatures are still in the mi…
