Summer Solstice 2014 Saturday June 21st


Happy Summer Solstice!  June 21st, 2014 is the longest day, the day that we have the most sunlight and isn't it just glorious? Solstice comes from the Latin words "sol" and "sistere" meaning "sun stands still"--a reference to how, when seen from Earth, the sun appears to pause before its position in the sky reverses direction.  To me it is the official kick off of summer and we now can technically use the term Summer when referring to the season.  Happy Summer friends!

It Made a difference to that one jewelry


 A few of my customers favorites are the It made a difference to that one necklace and bracelet, both items are made of high quality sterling silver and are available HERE.   These make perfect gifts for social workers and teachers! 

The Starfish Poem:

Once upon a time there was a wise man
who used to go to the ocean to do his writing.
He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work.

One day he was walking along the shore.
As he looked down the beach, he saw a human figure moving like a dancer.

He smiled to himself to think of someone who would
dance to the day. So he began to walk faster to catch up.

As he got closer, he saw that it was a young man
and the young man wasn't dancing, but instead he was reaching down to the shore,
picking up something and very gently throwing it into the ocean.

As he got closer he called out, "Good morning! What are you doing?"
The young man paused, looked up and replied, "Throwing starfish in the ocean."

"The wise man then asked, "Why are you throwing starfish in the ocean?"

"The sun is up and the tide is going out. And if I don't throw them in they'll die."

"But, young man, don't you realize that there are miles and miles of beach
and starfish all along it. You can't possibly make a difference!"

The young man listened politely. Then bent down, picked up another starfish
and threw it into the sea, past the breaking waves and said-
"It made a difference for that one."

Philosophy Pink Frosted Animal Crackers Shower Gel

I am pretty sure I have far too many different shower gels in my bathroom, butt taking showers gets boring.  I thought I would share some of my favorites from time to time. I have always enjoyed Philosophy 3 in 1 shower gels but tend to go for the fruity scents.  My current favorite that I found on a trip to Frankenmuth is the Pink Frosted Animal Crackers.  It smells just as you would expect, it is a light scented shower gel and not overbearing in scent.  When something has too much fragrance it gives me a headache but not the Frosted Animal Crackers Shower gel.
So if you happen to visit Frankenmuth and have a huge chicken dinner at Zehnders the Pink Frosted Animal Crackers is a zero calorie dessert!  

Do you have a favorite shower gel?  I always open a new bottle before the old one is gone, it's a very bad habit I have.

Best Party Punch Ever


I have always liked party punch or some call it shower punch. It is so simple but so delicious.

Party Punch

2 liter of ginger ale
1/2 gallon of rainbow sherbet
2 liter of Hawaiian Punch

Mix the ginger ale and Hawaiian Punch and then scoop out the rainbow sherbet and put on top of the punch. You can also reserve some Hawaiian punch and make some ice creams if you would like it extra cold.

Enjoy!!!!

Our Family Wall Collage



I  pieced together this wall collage from a variety of new and old items. I purchased several of the frames from Hobby Lobby along with the large letter P.  Many of the frames we already had. I pieced it together on the floor and then added until I had it just right.  The Family sign came from Etsy.  I love how it turned out and it is a beautiful reflection of our family, but mostly a shrine to Will.
