More Family Time


Since I shared my Dad’s birthday yesterday, I thought I’d also share another visit with Lauren and the girls home for Father’s Day last month with some new pics. It was so fun to have them home for both big events for dad this year. We love getting together as a family every chance we get and it always involves ...

Doing Acts of Kindness for Seniors


Hi, friends! Today I’m back sharing more about the Ready to Care initiative and how we can all help our aging seniors.

Welcome to another Fashion over 50! It’s hot y’all! I know I say that a lot, but it’s really hot. We’re half way through the summer and the heat is just kicking up.

Staying cool is still the name of the game here in Atlanta at the moment! Since we live near the lake, we’re getting afternoon showers about every other day which is good for the plants. Not so good for being outside, but we’ve managed to have some gatherings this summer on our patio space and that’s been fun. Today’s dress ...

Homemade Oatmeal Cookies


Who loves oatmeal cookies besides Mark? They are his favorite! They are really good and I’m loving this recipe myself, adding a few chocolate chips to some of them for my taste. Chocolate chips and oatmeal are great together, but Mark is a purist on these. These cookies are Mark’s Nanny’s recipe. One he grew up with as a boy, ...
