Hot August Weekend, Cape Cod Style

Running tight on time, but I wanted to share a few of the things I spotted this weekend on the Cape.

It seemed like everything was either blooming..


Or bobbing on the sea.


Big and small.


I got scolded by a seagull who bobbed his head at me, told me it’s not polite to stare.

I ALWAYS forget that.


And I saw, in real time, the kindness of two boys bobbing along on their paddle boards who took such care not to disturb a family of egrets who were hunting for their evening meal.


Co-existing.

Neither one losing anything at all.

And gaining everything..


And of course Marmee was the center of my weekend, too.


As she is, well, everyday. Sometimes bobbing, forever blooming.  ❤

Hope you had a good weekend, too.   😉

Humble and Kind Will Always Get My Vote

So there’s this Massachusetts girl named Lori McKenna.

She’s a songer/songwriter, and someone I’ve been following her whole career.

Lori’s up for 4 Grammys tonight for her latest album, The Bird and the Rifle as well her song, “Humble and Kind”, that gave Tim McGraw a #1 hit.

I can’t think of a single time in our country when we could use a whole lot more humility and kindness.

Here’s Lori’s rendition of the amazing song that made me cry when she sang it.

For all the right reasons.

You GO GIRL!

Simple Kindness

A simple gift of kindness.

‘Seems almost like an old-fashioned concept these days, doesn’t it?

marmee-andi-2016christmas-3-blogStill, for me, it’s at the heart of all things that truly matter.

And not just at Christmas time.

marmee-andi-2016christmas-2-blogThis was the perfect gift this Christmas from Andi, my Sweet sister from St. Louis.

But she could have sent it to me anytime of the year and it would have felt just as special.

Because she know what matters to me, what is in my heart.

Marmee62Thank you, Andi, Merry Christmas, today and every day. ❤
