Happy Birthday Sandra!

I hope you know how precious you are to all of us and what a joy it is to celebrate each and every birthday, Darling Sandra. We all smiled when you choose Palermo Italian Restaurant for lunch because we know it is your favorite place and we love it too!!!

It was nice to stroll over to the restaurant, a great reason for my mom to take a walk, she loves walking with my niece and Robbie. My daughter and her family were at the table waiting for us.

The best things in life are the people we love and the places we’ve been together and the memories we make.

Here are the starters we began with, Baked Clams, Pizza and Caesar salad, and some Penne Ala Vodka. The meatballs did not get a chance for a photo, they are that good!!! Yes, we were full at this point, but when you go hungry to a restaurant you end up ordering more.

Most of the food is served family style, and it is all delicious. Lots of take away so I won’t be cooking this week. A nice touch.

Happy Birthday Sandra! We think you are so special, not just today on your birthday, but everyday of the year!!! Love You.


Yes! It Really Is All About Me ~ The Journey Of A Lifetime by Darleen Miller

Each of us, at some point in our lives, will take on the role of caregiver. Whether we’re looking after a child or an elderly parent, or our chosen vocation involves working with students, clients or patients, we belong to a community of caregivers. As we all give so much energy to others it is imperative that we remember to nurture ourselves. As a lifelong caregiver, Darleen Miller shares what she learned through her own experiences to help all caregivers awaken to a new reality of self care through her experiential workbook, Yes! It Really Is All About Me!

Be kind to yourself, no guilt. You can’t do it all, you can just do your best.

My Favorite Color is October

What a perfect time of year October is and today was a great day to spend time with my daughter and family. We took a ride to Hicks Nurseries and spent hours walking around and enjoying this Sunday.

We were surrounded by color and Holiday Decoration Ideas, so much to choose from. There was a Hay Ride and even a small animal feeding and petting station.

Pumpkins, pumpkins and more pumpkins, The kids had a great day, what a wonderful way to spend some time outside and enjoying the season.

After all that walking around, we got hungry and it was a toss between Italian or Mexican food for lunch. The kids won and Mexican is was, we enjoyed a great meal at Tocolo Cantina, tortilla soup, shrimp ceviche, guacamole and chips. The kids love the Jarritos fruit punch.

There is always room for dessert and Mexican Hot Chocolate. We shared the Churro Sundae and the Sorbet Trio because everyone knows that calories don’t count on the weekends!!.
