When @leeannebenjamin was maybe three or four, she asked me why we have to die. I gave her my best answer and she seemed to understand. Then she said, “Mommy, if we have to die, I want to die holding your hand.” THAT is my Lee Anne. And so is this - me and her making a Starbucks run and her telling me the newest and best thing to order. Both of us feeling like we are skipping school. And both so thankful for our time together. Happy Birthday my sweet baby girl! . #happybirthday #familytime #memories #coffee #starbucks #iloveyou ...

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple. With a red hat which doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me. And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves. And satin sandals, and say we have no money for butter. I shall sit down on the pavement when I’m tired. And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells. And run my stick along the public retailing. And make up for the sobriety of my youth…… . Many years ago when I first read this poem, Warning by Jenny Joseph, I fell in love with it. Now that “old” is getting closer, I’m still not wearing the color purple but I certainly am drawn to it. Especially in flowers. So, for now, I will stick to purple flowers. For now…. . .

Had such a fun visit with my daughter @thescarlettsocial We spent some of our last day at the pool. Beautiful weather! At some point I looked down and noticed these palm trees reflected in my sunglasses atop my hat. Had to grab the shot. On another note, for those who have been following the story of my daughter in law @shawnmwf (she had a stroke April 26), today - for the first time - SHE MOVED HER LEFT ARM !!!!! It was during therapy and we are all beyond thrilled! Thank you so much for your continued kind words, prayers, and support! You guys are the best! 💜💜💜 . .

Who loves a tiered tray? Me! Me! Me! There is something about a tiered tray that makes me feel so creative! So many ways to decorate it! And also so fun to decorate for the seasons and holidays! I’ve been wanting one for a long time but could not find one that I liked. I found this one in white and bought it immediately. I liked it so much that I had to have it in brown too!

Yes. . . I’ve been thinking about getting one of these felt letter boards but so many of them look like something you would use in a diner. Until I saw this one by @feltcreativehome ! Love the brown background and the slightly distressed white frame. It can stand alone or hang on the wall. So - beware! Lots more quotes coming! Ha!! 😃 . .

Are you Iced Coffee or Hot? . A few years ago I switched to iced coffee and now I rarely ever have hot coffee. It started with McDonalds Sugar Free French Vanilla Iced Coffee. Then Keurig coffee I would make and then refrigerate. And a couple of years @leeannebenjamin introduced me to my new (and forever?) love - Nespresso. I’m addicted!!! Every morning it’s me and 2 Nespresso Fortissio Lungo coffees poured over ice. Yum yum yum. Best coffee ever! . .

Buddy’s new cozy spot. I have had a lot of dogs over the years, of various breeds, but I’ve never had a dog that seeks out comfort like this one. He is always looking for the softest spot to nestle into. Maybe it’s a Yorkie thing? Does your dog do this? . . #yorkie #yorkiesofinstagram #yorkielove #yorkielife #yorkies #yorkiegram #lovemydog #mydog #cozy #allaboutthecozy #cozyvibes ...

Got Home Decor? . If you follow my stories, you know that a couple of weeks ago I was adding shelves to one of my closets. This is why! I absolutely love sharing home decor, but at some point, I started running out of places to store the overflow. When we moved from Indiana to Florida, we downsized our house. We went from over 5000 square-foot to a little over 2000 square-foot. In hindsight, we might have downsized a little TOO much. But who knew that I would be doing home decor on Instagram? Not me! But I am so happy that I am. I love doing this. I love sharing home decor finds with you. I love you guys! I have met so many fabulous women on Instagram. I know there are a lot of mean people out there on social media, but I guess none of them follow me. I have the VERY BEST followers ever! So grateful for each and everyone of you. But, nevertheless, I am running out of space. I thought about renting a storage unit but I don’t want to have to drive to a storage unit every day to retrieve home decor items. It doesn’t seem to make much sense. We may end up buying or building a bigger house. Something that I certainly did not see coming when we were planning on our Florida downsize. But life is kind of like that, isn’t it? You never know what is next. So, stay tuned. I’m happy you are on this ride with me. So grateful for you. 💜 . . #blessed #homedecor #farmhouse #farmhousedecor #coastaldecor #florida #floridalife #needabiggerhouse #storage #storageideas #homeorganization #organization #organizationtips #sunday #sundaytips ...

My living room. But not right now. Still trying to get back to my normal routine (If you don’t know, my daughter in law had a hemorrhagic stroke April 26 and I have been in Indiana. Going back next week). As those of you who have dealt with family illness know, it’s simply exhausting. And ten times worse on my son and two grand daughters. 💜💜💜 Trying to work for a few days before I go back. I enjoy working from home. But it just seems to take so much energy right now. Shawn is improving slowly. So I need to improve too. Get busy while I’m home. But maybe not tonight. Dinner out is sounding good. Thank you so much for your many kind messages and words of encouragement. Honestly, you will never know how much they mean to us all. 💜🙏💜 Hope you are enjoying your Saturday. Give somebody you love a hug. . . #happysaturday #saturday #saturdayvibes #stroke #strokerecovery #hemorrhagicstroke #strokesurvivor #blessed #blessedbeyondmeasure #family #familytime #grateful #gratefulheart #livingroom #livingroomdecor #neutraldecor ...
