Wine Wednesdays

Last March we all found ourselves living a new reality...our lives were about to change drastically.  Many of us were shut indoors during a mandatory lockdown only venturing out for the essentials.  I remember having such "cabin fever" that I would get in the car and start driving around the city amazed at how little… Continue reading Wine Wednesdays

Wo(man)’s Best Friend…

    2020 has cast a dark shadow across the planet bringing with it so much sadness and for many, unbearable sorrow and grief.

Social Distancing…

Social and distance are two words with opposite meanings that usually don't get mentioned in the same sentence. I know social distancing was a phrase completely foreign to my personal lexicon! As the weeks go by, I'm sure you are like me, you're missing your old lifestyle, your friends, your family, and your freedom to move about… Continue reading Social Distancing…
