~If we were having coffee~

I love weekends! And especially when we get to sneak off, avoid the kids/husbands, and have coffee together! How has your week been? Did you get the writing goals done?

Complaint-free Zone~

Last week, before Irma hit, this fragile beauty peaked between greenery. Of course, now, the bushes are stripped, sticks-bare, brown..But the beauty remains when I close my eyes. Folks, we were lucky…we were. I am intensely aware of those that weren’t so fortunate, and my heart aches for their daily struggles. We can only keep… Continue reading Complaint-free Zone~
