The Pink Palace
As Hollywood As It Gets
This past week has been an amazing adventure! I’ve seen so many sights and visited so many places in Southern California. And I can’t wait to share them all with you in the coming weeks. First, on my list, I must share my stay at the world famous “Beverly Hills Hotel“.
Leaving On A Jet Plane
Today’s the day for a new adventure!
Actually, for the remainder of this week I’m heading off to California, Los Angles to be exact!
Definitely, excited for sure! And I’m packing light with carry on luggage for my four days of California sunshine. Checking bags when you travel can be a formula for disaster and a time waster when in a hurry. In any case, I’m keeping life simple. I am traveling light with a carry on and tote.
Hello October – Goodbye September
It’s Time To Start Dressing For Fall
It’s October 1st and the autumn has definitely arrived! And it’s time to change up the colors in my wardrobe… start dressing for fall. I absolutely love this time of year. Now, that the humidity is beginning to subside, you can find me right here on the front porch waiting for my ride. Here’s how it works at my house, “Call me when you come into the neighborhood and I meet you outside.” No, I’m not nuts! Remember those two Shelties like nothing better that to greet guests at the front door and many times the Grandkids are in the car. “Keep it simple”, that’s my motto.
Outfit Of The Day
The Simple White Shirt
I am an avid fan of a white shirt or blouse. For me it is one of the easiest ways to put together a basic classic outfit. The idea that you can dress it up or down depending on your choice of pants or skirt is a total thumbs up.
Most days find me in a rush about town. Consequently, so far this month has been no exception. Starting the month of September with the Labor Day Holiday, my brother’s and grandson’s birthdays and a visit from Hurricane Irma this week, I can say things have been hectic. Nevertheless, when given the invitation for an impromptu birthday lunch for a dear friend, I can be ready in a flash! However, I will note Irma was still three days away from us when I had my luncheon last week. Needless to say, hurricane preparedness was our main topic of conversation.
Touring The Grand Canyon
Check One Off The Bucket List
Warning: Today’s post is long on photos and short on words.
Why? Because, on a recent business trip to Las Vegas last month, we took a couple days for a few side trips. And the most amazing of all was our helicopter trip to the Grand Canyon. The beauty and majesty of the landscape for me was breathtaking! A picture is worth a thousand words. So, I am going to let my photos speak for me today.
Sundays With Jake And Rex
Sunday morning and the sun is shining. What better reason to simply take life a little easy and enjoy the moment? It’s time for a no fuss no muss walk through the neighborhood with my two best buddies, Jake and Rex. This gorgeous morning is the perfect time for reflection on this past week and prayers for our friends, family along with all the people affected by hurricane Harvey. Today it’s Simply Sunday and I am simply grateful for everyone and everything around me.
The Short And Sweet Of Casual Friday Style
Casual Friday style is much needed today. Because there is a lot to do. It’s the Friday before the July 4th holiday weekend! So, how do you manage all the errands and holiday prep while still remaining stylish? Always, my best advise is to keep it simple. Since, casual Friday means casual dressing and that’s one less thing to attend to on that never ending to do list. Today’s outfit is as casual as it comes. A white pocketed tee shirt, cropped white girlfriend jeans, canvas boat shoes, a couple white accessories, a messy bun hairdo and I’m out the door.
At last, the long 4th of July holiday weekend has arrived!
Be safe, have fun and enjoy.
Happy 4th of July!

This is St Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City. Awe inspiring does not convey the beauty and majesty of this cathedral.
Because this post is Simply Sunday, I will be simply sharing my photos of this magnificent cathedral with you today.
While visiting the cathedral, my experience was one of reverence and peace. Silence in a crowd and the lighting of candles for loved ones touch my heart.
I felt joy and gratitude.
That is my intention and that is my wish for you on this Simply Sunday.
