Happy 6th Birthday Matilda


In the past decade, I have had a few life changing moments.

Being disowned by  a parent,

having breast cancer,

losing a beloved canine companion.

But, with out a doubt, having granddaughter Matilda in our lives,

makes everything RIGHT…if you know what  I mean.

There is something about the continuation of life/generations

that reminds us that all of the other stuff in our lives,

 does not matter.

It does not matter at all.

So, here is to My Girl.

Today she turns 6 years old.

Happy Birthday Ma Cherie

Thoughtful, curly headed angel…..look at her tiny feet!


This thoughtful girl is the definition of  all things good to me.

She is Love, family, Inspiration and joy

all wrapped into one sweet girl.

Happy Birthday sweet girl.

May all your dreams come true.

Love you beyond the moon.



Having Company


Yesterday was SUPER busy


a certain granddaughter is coming over today.

I was getting things ready for Matilda and baking gifts for Larry’s clients.

Also, yesterday, I posted a recipe.

Here is the link: http://robintolbert.com/recipe-chaud-noix/

The recipe is for flavored {spicy hot} nuts. Perfect for parties or gifts.

Please check it out!

Enjoy a lovely weekend.

Be kind today….it is so much easier than being  b-i-itchy.

{excuse my French}

Love you!


Picasso & Matisse~Matilda & Larry

I have an amazing passion for Matisse and Picasso. Their lives were intertwined, they loved and disliked each other. They inspired each other and fought for their own point of views. I cannot get enough of them and the history behind thier ART.

I also love these two….



This  is the same photo location, 7 months apart in Paris France. Next time, I will have My Larry and Matilda together in front of this painting at the Picasso Museum. This wonderful museum is worth the visit. You will be in awe, inspired and in love.

Please have an inspired day today. I feel joy in the air.

Love you,
