Robin In Real Life

Yesterday…. Matilda took us to see The Lion King for her birthday. Then we had lunch at The Blue Goose and she opened her gifts from Larry and myself. It was such a great morning. {Do I really have to wait one entire year to do it again?} Larry and I had chores to do….

Secrets and Fridays

What a week it has been. In retrospect, it was OK, but in the moment, not so much…… EXCEPT for that special dinner with Larry on Monday night. Larry and I have a secret place that we escape to. It is a restaurant and the owners know us. We have our own booth and our…

Hummingbirds and Succulent Gardens

Last week, Matilda gave us a gift. It is very special. Larry and I have spent the week oohing and aahing over the special gift. The painting is titled “Hummingbird At The Beach”…. It is so amazing and I could not love it more even if it was a Matisse. The Hummingbird is my favorite…

Bah Humbug?

I cannot believe that the holidays are so……what is the right word? Imminent? Well, Imminent might not be quite right but geeze. It is coming sooner than I thought. There was a time when we hosted a party the Saturday before Christmas every year. We had a Christmas tree in every room and I adored…

Every morning, I try to exercise, get cleaned up and have a new blog post published by 9:00 am. I only post blogs Monday through Friday. Will you forgive me? I have nothing much to share today. I did walk through the house, taking photos of what I HAVE to do when I step away…

What Matters!

I have the insane habit of looking up. All the time! Do you think that it is because I am 5′ 9 1/2″ tall? Because I look up so much, I bump into things, trip very often and though embarrassed, I do not fall often. A good friend once told me that looking up is…

Birthdays, Champagne and Unicorns. Oh My.

Yesterday, while preparing to write the blog post, I found a couple of adorable photos. I put them aside till today, hoping to share a special time that I get to observe each June/July. When our girl~granddaughter~Matilda was born, Larry bought wine to celebrate. When Lauren and Josh brought her home from the hospital, Larry…

Oh Wisteria

Yesterday, on the heels of planting plants on the patio here at the cottage, my mind kept going back to London. The wisteria in London this spring was my favorite. It canopied over our heads and made us feel as if we were in a lavender tunnel. When I managed a flower shop in Tennessee,…
