If you remember from a previous post, my Boaz and I enjoyed putzing around Sanibel Island over Christmas break. We discovered an incredible placewhere I could eat nestled in the Bailey Shopping Plaza next to the bicycle rental store. They did an awesome job handling my food to avoid cross-contamination for this celiac and multi-allergy ...

My hubby and I decided to go mall walking at a prestigious mall because it was too cold outside. One thing struck us: There were barely any Christmas decorations compared to previous years. The only real display was at the center with a castle for Santa pictures. Sure, stores had their decorations up. Of course, they want to sell Christmas gi...

So, I’ve been sitting at the island in my kitchen, sipping coffee while setting up posts for social media. Flurries flit about in a hazy gloom outside. This time of year is always rough for me, even though my first husband died seven years ago. The scene outside just adds to grief’s effect. You would think grief gets better wit...
