About Me

My photo
I was motivated to start a blog by reading all the wonderful talented individual's who have blogs out there. So, I want to make this blog about everyone who reads it. My family and God always comes first in my life. I want to share my experiences and in turn, hope to get feedback and ideas from you. I love unique things, I adore anything that sparkles (not over the top though) I love decorating, cooking, gardening, photography and shopping. My number one passion is photography! To me it becomes more than a picture, it can become a piece of art, or a beautiful memory. Decorating, though I am not a professional, and don't claim to be, has been a part of my life since I was very young, and just love searching and shopping for new ideas and incorporate the old, such as Mid-Century Modern and Hollywood Regency with contemporary. Living close to the Gulf of Mexico in Florida, and being of Hispanic heritage, I love cooking Mexican food, and love to share my authentic recipes. Though I live in Florida, my heart is in the desert southwest, and hope that my family and I will return there very soon…keep your fingers crossed that my prayers are answered SOON!!!

White Pumpkins...

So, I was on a mission the other day to find little white pumpkins...did I find them?  No,  I got so busy around the house and was out in the Lanai getting things ready for a nice family cook-out.  Yep, we are still grilling out here in the Sunshine State, actually we do all year long.  When I heard my husband call for me to come in, I thought he was going to ask where the bag of Mesquite was (he never seems to know where I keep all the wood chips).  When I walked in the house, there sitting on my kitchen island was these three cutest little white pumpkins.  I was so thrilled!!!  He of course found them right there in our local market.  We invited my daughter's boyfriend over for the BBQ and what does he walk in with but 3 more little white pumpkins.  OK, now I was almost in tears.  I was shocked, though he is a wonderful young man, just to remember hearing me say I was going out looking for them, and he took upon himself to get them for me. I was surprised not once, but twice.  Isn't it so nice when the smallest of gestures, mean the most!

  1. Cool! I'm wanting some white ones, too. I plan to hunt for some this week.

  2. Melody, aren't they adorable. I didn't think I would be able to find them, and now I actaully have seven and my daughter and her boyfriend found white with orange and light green speckles...too cute, and so inexpensive, they make all your other fall colors pop. You'll find them. And, thank you so much for commenting. I love your Blog and became a follower. God Bless!!!
