Good Morning Darlings!

This past weekend was filled with yummy food and fabulous friends.

And zombies, of course.

Dining with Zombies?

For Charlane

Good Morning Darlings!

My life is pretty breezy most of the time. I try not to let too many things bother me and when they do, I try to figure out how to best handle it.

When I heard that my precious friend Melanie had lost someone very close to her, it made my heart ache. How do you fix that?

Mellie’s friend Charlane was a marvelous blogger. And although I had never met her, I was moved by her posts. They were all so whimsical and charming. I bet you would love her, too. Take a look at one of her last posts here.

So how do you mend a broken heart?

Giving it a try inside….

Everyday is a Hootenanny with Melanie!

Good Morning Darlings!

The weather is getting warmer, and you know what that means – more parties!

Our darling friend and neighbor, Melanie threw the first hootenanny of the season. Don’t you love that word, hootenanny? Me, too.

Melanie is good at it, too! With the cutest handmade signs and every type of chip and jello shot known to Western civilization, it was time to party! And party we did!

Take a peek into what’s going on in my world today

Winning! Duh!
