writing journals

I just love to write and still take notes the old fashion way.  I just don't see many journals these days and it's so sad.  My sister and I used to write letters back in forth for years when she attended school.  I have several journals I keep for my fondest memories of each of my children.  I even kept a journal when I was pregnant... I need to get back in the habit of writing in them again.  I re-read them sometimes and it's like I am back in that moment.  I know my children will cherish these journals when they get older and become parents. It's also a great place to tuck favorite pics and little notes from them.

I hope this encourages all of you to take out a pen and grab a journal (I prefer the leather ones) and write about your day...


a few hardbound books for friends.



                             Love the old fashion pages...


                              This should encourage you....

Journals also make a wonderful gift for family and friends!

dipping oil


Tis the season for fresh baked breads and I found an amazing dipping oil from Annie's Naturals.  This one is olive oil, balsamic with herbs galore.  I sprinkled some fresh ground pepper and a little bit of parmesan cheese and it was perfect. There are other varieties that I'd love to try...if you tried any others let me know!

Dipping Oil

A wonderful and healthy alternative to butter! Dip your bread, dress your salad, saute your chicken. Made with Basil, Roasted Garlic and Rosemary Oils, aged balsamic vinegar, chili flakes and secret spices to make your taste buds sing. The original Napa Valley Dipping oil.
(8.4 oz bottle)
Ingredients: PURE OLIVE OIL (NATURAL FLAVORS OF OILS AND ESSENCES EXTRACTED FROM ORGANIC BASIL, ROASTED GARLIC, ROSEMARY), IMPORTED BALSAMIC VINEGAR, SPICES.

simple gifts


In need of a simple gift that's inexpensive and looks like a million dollars, then you're in luck.  The items in the picture are all from T.J. Maxx and were less than $20. The leaf bowl that contain the items were from AC Moore (set of 3 nesting bowls were $9.99).  Add some plastic wrap, paper fill and matching twine or ribbon and VIOLA, it's a gift basket for under $30.  Another great place to shop for items for a gift basket is Home Goods.

Hope you had a WONDERFUL weekend!
