… today for the first time in years, I laid down still in the grass, faced the sky and soaked up the sun…

… it was so relaxing and peaceful… why don’t I ever do this!?   Of course, I was lazy and super tired for the rest of the day, so maybe it’s a good thing I DON’T regularly do this… ;-)

… honored today to be asked by a long-time Hollywood filmmaker to appear in one of his short films…

… of course, I will do it, especially after reading your script and the tears that came as I read it… fun to think you were making the movie “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton when I was just a baby! … so honored to be asked to do this project…

… loving the fact that’s it the get-your-hands-dirty gardening time of year!

… and beyond excited to finally fill the void of not having a vegetable garden… so blessed and happy to be planning a garden once again… my favorite part of daily summer life (tending the garden)!

… let me know if you want to join us on this “I Love Brevard” River Wine Cruise (“Wine Along the Rhine”) in March 2019!

I’ve always wanted to do a European river cruise, and now I get to!  Message me for how to reserve your spot on this trip with our group… it’s $750 off right now and the cruise visits France, Germany, Netherlands & Switzerland! If you’re a foodie and love good wine and food like me… this trip is for us! :-)

Details: The cruise starts in Basel and ends in Amsterdam. We’ll get to see Zurich’s medieval homes, Amsterdam’s amazing museums, Heidelberg (where Mark Twain wrote “A Tramp Abroad”), will check out 40 castles strung along the Rhine, and will sample wines every step of the way, including from France’s Alsace region while in Riquewihr, Freiburg and Strasbourg and the vineyards of Rüdesheim.
