When I was growing up my Grandparents, Papa and Granny, were the center of my world. They were kind, caring, active and were always our escape from day-to-day life. When I was 11, we moved from Jacksonville, FL to Tallahassee, FL. This meant there was now 3 hours between me and my Papa and Granny.… Continue reading Rallys, Crowns and Memories
It’s been a busy couple of weeks! After Aunt Audrey’s party in Colorado we headed east to La Crosse, Wisconsin. We’d never been to Wisconsin! In Havasu, we met Rick and Kathi and they invited us to stop in sometime while they are in La Crosse (they summer there). We realized that La Crosse was… Continue reading Wisconsin and Michigan are Favorites!
This was the third year in a row that we’ve spent our winter in Lake Havasu City, AZ. We love it there and have made some great friends! We were scheduled to depart May 1st but were delayed due to a health scare. I had to have a follow up on a routine mammogram so… Continue reading Following our Hearts to Colorado
Sometimes people just pop into your head and you have the most vivid memories! When this happens, I always wish I could reach out and tell each person that I remembered them and our experience!

So, we changed and went for Christmas and it was magical! They moved to Cleveland last year and despite our numerous attempts to get… Continue reading Christmas (I’m getting caught up)
After our three weeks in Colorado, we returned to Orange Beach, AL for the remainder of November and December. Thanksgiving was low key given we’d been on the road. We decided to stay in our jammies all day on Thanksgiving and enjoy the parades and football. We did cook turkey, dressing and all of the… Continue reading Memories, Family and the Beach
The last blog I published was about Quinton, Roger’s Dad. We did indeed make the trip to Colorado for his final days and were very comforted in the fact that we had some quality time with him before he passed. We were extremely blessed with the caregivers he had in his final days and the… Continue reading Blessed in Colorado
It’s been said that writing is therapeutic, so here goes! Roger’s Dad is 95 and has taken a turn for the worse. We are en route to Grand Junction now to see him, and it sure stirs up memories. Memories I’d like to capture for me to keep and also to share with others. I… Continue reading Therapy
Nashville baby! It’s been on Tonya’s list for years and it did not disappoint! The first week was spent with just the two of us doing the touristy stuff. We rode the hop-on-hop-off bus and were able to have a great lunch downtown and walk around to take in the sounds. And if you’ve been… Continue reading New Places and Old Faces
