Best Chocolate!!!

We have visited Epcot at Disney World in Orlando, Fl several times. 

  When I was a kid I hated it, but now that I’m grown up, I appreciate it very much. 

If you have never been to Epcot, in the back of the park, you can visit different sections. Each of these sections are divided into countries. A lot of people do wine tour through each country, but seeing that I don’t consume alcohol, I decided to do a chocolate tour of each country. I fell in love with this.


 This is the best chocolate that I have ever had. I’ve had their bars, truffles , and A couple of days ago, I learned about this 

I found it at fresh Maket, I ate it and I liked it.  If you are in search of a new chocolate, try the best chocolate ever. 

Happy Gardening

i just wanted to give an update on our patio garden. 

I was worried for awhile that we weren’t going to get any fruit, but alas, we have eggplant. 


And this morning I saw evidence of peppers and broccoli possible. 

Our spice bucket is doing great  I’m not sure I’m picking the basil right. It is growing up instead of out. If you know anything about growing basil, please instruct me. 

My Mother’s Day flowers are still blooming. 

We did throw away our orange buckets. We had lettuce and squash. They were rotting. 

But overall, we are still green. 

Happy Gardening!!!!

  I was having a bad day recently. It was a meltdown really. I felt as if the world was falling all around me. I felt the meltdown coming a couple days before and tried to avoid it, I know this makes the meltdown worse, but I hate hate low spots. 

The tough part is most of the time I’m a happy go lucky person, and I and light hearted, but people like me have bad days to. It’s a shock to most people around me when this happens. I hate it when I feel this way. Writing this post

I’m just thankful that my hubby was there And graciously listened to me. I love him for excepting me through the good bad and ugly. 

Happy Anniversary to my parents

Today is parents wedding anniversary. I love you guys. Thanks for teaching me what staying together means not matter what. Thanks for teaching me what marriage is. I love you guys.

Always and Forever, Eric!!!!!

I just realized today that my youngest will be heading off to college in about seven weeks, and for the first time in 20 years, I will not have any children at home. It’s hard to fathom. I can’t even think about it where the time has gone.

How does this?


Turn into this


I loved being around when my kids were growing up. I loved being there for the good and bad times. I know I will always be their mom, and they will always need me whether they admit it or not,

The truth is one of the hardest moments of my life was pulling away and leaving my daughter for the first time at college. It doesn’t get easier either. It will be the same for my youngest when we leave her. The only way that I can leave them is knowing that they are following their dreams.

All I can do at this point is to continue to pray that they continue down the right path for them. Moms get prepared to let live and let go. I say that, and I’m not prepared and never will be. Don’t tell my kids.

Even though both of them will be going, I still have this guy.


He is pretty swell. I love him so much. I dedicate this song to you baby.“>Always and Forever by Heatwave


Always and forever, each moment with you
Is just like a dream to me that somehow came true
And I know tomorrow will still be the same
‘Cause we’ve got a life of love that won’t ever change and

Everyday, love me your own special way
Melt all my heart away with a smile
Take time to tell me, you really care
And we’ll share tomorrow, together
I’ll always love you forever, forever

There’ll always be sunshine when I look at you
It’s something I can’t explain just the things that you do
And if you get lonely, phone me and take
A second to give to me that magic you make and

Everyday, love me your own special way
Melt all my heart away with a smile
Take time to tell me, you really care
And we’ll share tomorrow, together
I’ll always love you ever, ever

Always forever love you
Always forever love you
Always forever love you
Always forever love you

Always forever love you
I said forever, ever love you
Love you forever, ever
Always forever love you, you

This Place is On Fire!!!!

The weather here in Alabama has been crazy this year from the snow we had in February,

the crazy lighting storms lately,

And the heat.  

It’s hard to believe that just a few months go. The song of the month was It’s as cold as ice and now well, this place is on Fire.  



Today, we took a trip down to Birmingham to see our oldest daughter off for a three week trip to Ohio where she will be assistant directing the PajamaGame.  

I’ve been wanting to take her to LuLu’s Continental Bakery ever since I went there last year during the Sidewalk Film Festival. 

Today was that day.

I felt fancy in my summer dress. 

And brunch, well judge for yourself. 

Bread basket  

Croque Madame

Very fancy delicious brunch place, or if just want a coffee and a pastry, they have those to. Sugar Lalas are yummy. Stop by if you are ever in Birmingham, Al, you will be glad you did. 

Patio Gardening!

This year my family move to a small space in hopes of one day owning a tiny house that sits a small plot of land, or hitting the road to travel full time and work on the road. 

We decided this spring to plant a patio garden to see if we would be up to handling something a little bigger. 

 We started out by weeding the existing spaces and putting down pine straw. Then my husband built a small box to make the smaller of the two spaces a little bigger. 

 We planted the following. 







We had some extra plants left over, so we planted those in a 5 gallon bucket.also, we planted a few herbs in a green bucket. 




We finished by adding some flowering plants and some hosta. 

 We are hoping to have something planted year round, but for now we are anticipating our first fruit. 


Old Women and Tank Tops

  When I was younger, I ofTen wondered why older women wore tank tops. I would think to myself, she is to old for that. Now, I’m finding myself desiring to wear tank tops all the time. So to my younger self, I will now answer the question. 

1.I don’t wear tank tops to be sexy. 

2. I hate clothes touching me. 

3. I live in a humid place, and as I get older, I stay warm. I sweat, I just want to be temperature cool. Not to be mistaken for hip cool. 

4. I don’t care how I look in my tank top, it is about comfort, it’s not about impressing anyone. 

So if you see me and I am wearing my tank top( I try to limit them to home), please no I’m hot and uncomfortable on that day already,please don’t stare in disgust. 


I’ve been extremely busy. I haven’t blogged or vlogged in awhile. Did want to congratulate my little one.  

She graduated from High school. Love you Heidi. Mom
