Owl’s Head Light

Owl’s Head Light is one of my favorite of the Maine Lighthouses. Sitting high on the coast, it provides a lovely vantage point of the surrounding coast. The day we visited, Mom and I wore our matching star and anchor print sweaters, which were perfect for the cooler, overcast morning. Delila loved dragging me up…

American Teddy

I’m completely obsessed with Ralph Lauren’s teddy bear collection but because there are really no good options for women, and adult sweaters cost nearly $400, I took a chance on a boy’s size medium, since there were no larger options.  While the arms were a little short, it wasn’t anything an expertly cuffed button down…

Snow Day Shenanigans

Sometimes I hit a figurative wall and need to release excess energy while getting some fresh air. It feels good to relax, climb a tree and play outside in the snow. Although it’s freezing, it’s exhilarating and fun. The older I get, the more frequently I forget to have fun. As ridiculous as this may sound, having…
