Fourth of July! Fashion & Freedom



Red, White and Blue!






"With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon who could not be happy" Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) Irish poet and playwright



The Fourth of July is this Thursday.  Fireworks, apple pie, swimming, sunshine, family and fun is all wrapped up in this patriotic and special holiday.  More importantly, we need to take time and be grateful, and to reflect on our forebearers who built this glorious country through sweat, hard work and perseverance.   We live in a free land because of them.  We must also remember and honor those who have and those who still today fight for our freedom worldwide.  We are forever and eternally indebted. 

While you take a moment and count your blessings, let us also contemplate on what to wear on this sparkler and fireworks filled day.   Of course, anything red, white and blue.

There you have it.  Are you ready for the 4th of July?  I hope so.  Be sure to sport your red, white and blue in festive ways.  By hopeful, upbeat and never let negative energy, words or anger cloud your day.  This is your life, and your time so don't waste it with the gloomy verbiage that surrounds us in social media and with the media at large.  Be a spirit of joy and spread wisdom rather than hate. Thus, enjoy the day, embrace your friends, be happy, show love and celebrate your life and this great nation. 


"The American, by nature, is optimistic;  He is experimental, an inventor and a builder who builds best when called upon to build greatly."  President John F. Kennedy







Happy 4th of July! 


Until Next Time!

Merry Christmas 2020

  Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas one and all.  May you have a very festive day.   What a crazy year!  At the onset of the year 2020, we all had the best intentions, goals, and anticipation.   Of course, 2020 proved to be the opposite of anything we expected.  Completely 180 degrees of "What Now?"   There is no need to explain because we all have lived it.  What is for certain is that the year is finally ending. Thank goodness.  Some have stated this was the worse year in the history of our country.  Whether it was or is not, the end is in sight and a vaccine is beginning to be administered.  Hopefully, we each can reassess what is important in our lives, anticipate some sort of normalcy swooping back into our lives.  After all, we are social creatures and being isolated is not healthy for the mind or the body.  Spirit of Christmas - The Christmas Star Last Seen 1226 Never stop believing in the future and unknown.  This season we all decorated to the nines, baked cookies, laid ou

Inspiration Weekly Lift - Happy Holidays

  What Brings You Joy? The Spirit of the Holidays It is the small things after all that brings a joyous glow to this holiday season.  This morning, my husband, lit up the living room mantle with some new lights for me to see.  The effect was beautiful, and it made my day sparkle.  Now more than ever, these cherished gestures are what we are longing for at the end of 2020.  And there are many for us to receive and for us to give to others.  We need to be present and aware of the beauty swirling around us.  What we know for certain is that everything in 2020 has been turned upside down. Yet, we continue, dust ourselves off and keep on moving with grace, a smile, and a positive attitude.  Like Cindy Lou Who in the Grinch Who Stole Christmas .  After all, why not?  No one can break our spirits and love for each other.  The holiday is here with new festivities.  We are constantly reminded that our lives are the best gift.  Of course, it is.  We may not have gatherings, but the heart of the

Happy New Year - 2021

  A New Chapter "Cheers to the new year and another chance for us to get it right." - Oprah Winfrey The end of the year fast approaches.  It has been a roller coaster ride for everyone.  The virus, lockdowns, tragic deaths, national election, and other elements caused for a turbulent and unforgettable year.  One we will never forget.  Some say this is the worst year in our history surpassing the depression of the 1930's, September 11th and various Wars.   Perhaps this is so because our country and the entire world shut down at various points.  Even today, lock downs exist, virus is on the rise and vaccines are being administered.  We will never forget last Spring and Summer when eerie photos of empty streets filled the newswires, epic violence occurred and of course endless news about the benevolent virus. However, we continue onward.  We eagerly move forward to a fresh beginning.  We wash away 2020 and start anew with a clean slate filled with possibility, hope and peace
