This week we come together as a Nation to celebrate Thanksgiving. To me this time of the year is magical.  We begin the month with honoring our veterans and then we come together and celebrate thanks, and this is the introduction to the holiday season. Depending on where you reside in the country for some you are getting your first snowfall, and for others, it is the first breath of fresh air from the summer heat, regardless the seasons have changed. I love seeing the holiday lights being hung on the trees and see the poinsettias around town. Families travel hundreds of miles to see one another and celebrate this beautiful holiday designed to give thanks. I have to imagine that our Nations first Thanksgiving was very different than how we celebrate today. There were no football games on; I doubt that they had the green bean casserole and of course they did not have the Macey’s day parade. But what they did was celebrate gratitude, giving and humility. Or at least that is what I [...]

There is always good news. I have to be honest when I first heard this comment; I was thinking okay great, whatever and thanks for the support but I don’t really see the good news.

Turquoise, Pink Bougainvillea, and The White Assali Dress As you know, I love the desert. Yes, it is hot but as a woman to be able to wear summer clothes and not be cold does not happen often. Living in San Diego, we have the perfect weather but as soon as the sun goes down or if we are in the shade, and a little breeze picks up we need something to cover our shoulders. Now I realize this is a champagne problem, and I hope you understand I am not complaining at all. My point is in San Diego we are always coordinating a pashmina or a jacket to go with our summer dresses or tank tops. So a weekend in the 100 degree heat with a sundress and no pashmina is a gift. Palm Springs is the Hollywood playground and weekend getaway for Southern Californians. It is just about 2 hours to Los Angeles and about the same to San Diego. People come to sip, splash and play. The glitz and glamor of Los Angeles have made the […]

I am the good fat!!!   I have a love affair with avocados. Living in San Diego, we are so lucky to be adjacent to the avocado capital, Fallbrook so that we can buy them year round for about $5.00 a bag. I love their creamy, nutty taste that goes with just about anything from a good sandwich to garnish on a bowl of chili.
