Summertime is right around the corner. Believe me, I'm keeping track. It's been a long winter, especially for someone like me who just isn't a snow bunny. I don't ski. I don't snowmobile. I don't ice skate, and I live in New Hampshire. Go figure!
If you hadn't yet heard, green is the "it" color of the season. Fashion, home decor, accessories and jewelry are bursting forth in vibrant shades of color. Purses, blouses, and bracelets in hues ranging from olive to lime to emerald are showing up in practically every store window front. Green, the color of nature and freshness and vibrancy, is THE color that every woman must have in her spring and summer wardrobe.
I will soon be celebrating my 15th wedding anniversary, and I can't tell you how excited I am! Not only have my husband and I been married all of those years, but we've been together a total of almost 21 years! That's a really long time to spend with someone; in my case, nearly half of my life!
May is gold month. What does that mean, really? I've heard the reference for several years now. I've seen the ads and I've heard the catch phrase the whole month long.

Recently I went on a family trip to Puerto Rico. I'd heard of the gemstone larimar before, but had never seen it in person. While there, in that gorgeous tropical paradise, I had the opportunity to see quite a bit of larimar. It comes in all different shapes, sizes, and colors. Unless you've been to the Caribbean, you've probably never seen it yourself, nonetheless even heard of it.
It's that time of year again, where many of us wrack our brains and stress out about what we're going to get for our mothers to prove our undying love and gratitude.
