Merry Welcome to my blog page! 

I am so excited to go through this journey with you.  As we go along this path, I plan to post on a frequent basis. I don't want you to get bored, but at the same time I also don't want to bombard you with postings.  Because to be honest, I'm kinda private.  A woman of few words.  But with that being said, my topics might range from the personal, to decorating, to my experience with recent services and purchases, all the way to general musings on life.  I do hope that you will want to come back for more!  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Take the Cookie


Remember a previous post where I said I was not only beginning to edit the stuff in my house, but the people in my life as well. I am being very discriminate. BUT, with that being said, I also realize I need to live life. When you've been accustomed to having a life partner accompany you to all social activities, it becomes uncomfortable learning to attend events alone. I tell people "I hate flying solo". And, really I do. However, I know I must step out of my comfort zone if I want to enjoy the things life and my community has to offer. I was offered tickets to an event and was told to bring my daughter as a guest. My daughter had schedule conflicts. I contemplated declining the tickets. As I was sharing this with a new friend, she said "my family has a saying. When offered cookies, accept the cookie." Meaning, if an opportunity comes your way, take it. You can always reject if later if its not to your liking.


So, I decided to take the cookie. I'll let you know how it went.


I do want to remember though as I go through life, Take the Cookie.
