One of my favorite lines is you can’t spell smother without mother. Today is a celebration of all women whether for our moms or ourselves or for the friends, stepmoms, grandmas and aunties we refer to as bonus moms.
You cannot spell Mother’s Day without others.



I love a handbag or tote that says I love summer. JCF aka J. Crew Factory has cute Raffia bags. I ordered this bag and I just got the email it is on the way.

Here is the same bag in a neutral color.

Tip: I have found inexpensive, small, seasonal clutches in the girls’ department of most retailers.

These earrings are on sale. I get more compliments on my jewelry from JCrew Factory than my wedding band I lost last weekend.


Have you heard of Jack Rogers- the online shoe retailer? A friend shared this retailer a few years ago and I love their shoes. They always have a sale and their shoe size descriptions under reviews are helpful. I have found their shoes run true to size.

For spring I ordered two pairs. This sneaker is super comfy.

I ordered this summer cork flat.

Shopping tip:I found if I narrow the shoe search I miss good finds so I would keep your parameters broad (the opposite of an online dating app).

These summer sandals are on the way. Thse Tuckernuck slides are under 50.


I get most of my garland and stems from House Floral. They now sell gift cards online.

I am on their waitlist for long pine needle garland.


The perfect gift for the talented or beginner cook!
