Carpe Vinum!

I don’t know wine, but I do know what tastes good. My family owns an Italian restaurant and I have been introduced to the “good stuff”. I’ve sampled numerous varieties over the last fifteen years and I’ve narrowed down my favorite grapes to pinot noir and pinot grigio.

Rock of ❤

My best friend and my valentine… he plays both positions on this team. We got married 29 years ago, when we were both babies! We’ve grown up together. We started out “playing house” and built our family. My “valentine” has a raunchy sense of humor, doesn’t mind offending people, likes to be the center of… Continue reading Rock of ❤

You Give me a Royal Headache

A Little Frappe Makes Everything Better

I just rekindled a romance with the Silhouette Cameo. It was there all the time and I didn’t even realize I needed it. It was practically brand new, I only used it a handful of times, so I dusted it off and turned it on. Everything was working fine, I even upgraded to the Design… Continue reading A Little Frappe Makes Everything Better
