Holiday Sparkles 2017



Time to Sparkle & Have Good Cheer

The time has come to chose a few sugar plum accessories to punch up any outfit with a bit of ornamental shine. Take a simple outfit and add a fur scarf, faux diamonds, embellished clutch or a velvet top for a red carpet moment. Let the glorious warm hues of the holidays burnish the hearts and minds with family and friends as one makes an entrance from soiree to soiree.  Ah, the festive air season is aswirl once again.  Stand out, walk tall and smile.  After-all, this is your moment,  your movie and your life. Live it well, my friend.

Or in our case as human beings doing the best they can as they spend each day rambling down the river of life.  An actual river flows downhill from the force of gravity.  The waters can be wide and deep or shallow to walk across.  This river can be called a stream, creek, or brook.  A once serene rushing river can turn into a flooding nightmare covering land, filling houses, and changing landscapes.  Just like humanity spinning towards the unknown.   
Life can be tranquil at moments and then burst into a storm of anger, disbelief, or tragedy.   A life is easily compared to a roaring river as transitions in our world are extremely rapid.  It can be difficult for the human mind to assess what has transpired.   The result is be…

"With freedom comes responsibility." Eleanor Roosevelt
Parades, apple pie, contests, hamburgers, friends, family, and fireworks are the essential ingredients for a celebratory Fourth of July.  This year will be unforgettable as the Covid 19 virus has changed the celebration landscape.  The large gatherings, festivities and essential mix of fun are on the shelf across the country. We ourselves are accustomed to celebrating in the islands viewing a parade, taking walks, wildlife adventures, exquisite dinners and viewing incredible fireworks that fill the sky.  Though this is year is unique, never fret.
