Thinking about my Mom. Tomorrow it will be 30 years since I lost her. Two weeks before I had our son Mikey. I was thirty, Mike will be thirty in two weeks...Unbelievable how quickly time passes. Missing Mom is just a part of me now. Having Mikey to take care of was a blessing to me and my Dad who was lost after Mom left us. Grateful I had the kind of Mom mine was. Kind and generous, talented and quick to laugh. Beautiful inside and out. The sweetest Grandma to our kids, and a kind and loving Mother to my hubby. Remembering a million happy memories. October will always be hard...

take on the great success of their company Beekman 1802 was inspiring.
I just wanted to mention that Josh and Brent were leaving for a conference call with Target. Starting Oct. 26th, Super Target will begin selling the Beekman's Mortgage Lifter Pasta Sauce. Twenty five percent of the profits go to help struggling small American farmers. Check it out!
A great day, inspiring, fun and I can't get the Pennsylvania Polka out of my head!
Have a great weekend my friends. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy this beautiful day!

On Saturday we had so many things to do, but most importantly to find a red hoody sweatshirt for our baby grand. She wants to be Daniel Tiger for Halloween and grandma and grandpa took the job of finding all the right elements for the costume. If you are not familiar, Daniel Tiger is a character spun off from Mr. Rogers Neighborhood. It is an animated series, but has the same gentle nature as Mr. Roger's show did and teaches the same values and life lessons I loved when my kids were small.
We started our search at the fancy pants mall and had to stop at the Pottery Barn to see what was new. (After visiting all the stores I though would have a red hoody, we finally found one at the Wallymart.) These giant reclaimed wooden doors was what was brand new at the PB.
After our whirlwind weekend, and completing my project that was weighing on me for a while, I feel footloose and fancy free. I'm starting to think about the holidays...but today I've declared my day off!
Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments. Enjoy this beautiful day.

A sweater and scarf for me. They went right to the wash, though I already wore the sweater, score!
Off to work. I need to get over the "hump" which is Wednesday, so I can see another October romp this weekend!
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy this beautiful day.
