Whoa! It's literally been more than two years since my last post! (Grammar and punctuation police -- stay away!). Sooo much has changed and as a matter of fact, the ENTIRE world is currently fighting the cornavirus pandemic! Yes, in 2020, we're on lockdown and forced to "social distance" away from our families and friends... Continue Reading →
It's that time again! Another holiday, means another tablescape! Seems like everyone is planning an Easter brunch or dinner. Meanwhile, I'm planning... Actually I don't think I'm planning anything at the moment! Oh well, spontaneity keeps me going! Since my last post, I've made a few updates. First, I added a couple of over-sized captain...

If you follow me on Instagram, then you've seen a few of my seasonal table settings. I look forward to holidays and change in seasons, because it gives me a reason to decorate my table. Creating tablescapes originally stemmed from boredom. Then I gravitated towards the idea of having a styled table at all times,... Continue Reading →
It’s Not You, It’s Me!

Chicken Parmesan Pasta Bake
Confession: I'm no domestic goddess, but every now and then I like to practice! Let's face it, after a long day's work, fighting traffic twice, the last thing I want to do is roam around the grocery store, stand in the checkout line, then come home and cook! I know that sounds like a piece of... Continue Reading →
Sipping: Caramel Apple Spice
I don't know about you, but I'm a H U G E fan of the Starbucks' Caramel Apple Spice drink. When I've reached my caffeine limit, that's my drink of choice... I feel like I throw the baristas a curveball anytime I order it... (A few of them have had to reference the cheat sheet)! Although I don't have... Continue Reading →
