hello, my friends! It’s so great to see you here…


And it’s the little things in life that count most. I believe the ordinary days are the most beautiful.

I want you to drop by unannounced whenever you’d like as good friends often do. I’m here to share with you all of the things I’m so deeply passionate about like the recipes that make you want to go back for 3rd and 4th helpings, rabid college football fever, and yes (!) even my Nana-like lotion brand love affair.

Please reciprocate. I want to know what you’re going ga-ga over so I can obsess over it too! In due time, we will move on to the next best lip color, oversized handbag, and sparkly-fresh iPhone case.

Oh, and one more thing I forgot to mention. With each post, you’ll find a ditty to listen to if you’d like but I’m warning you, the tuneage will run the gamut so best be open to anything…

Be sweet.
