I am continuing to revel in inspiration this week, as well as being blessed by friends who love me so much, they even work hard behind the scenes to surprise me. Jenni came to town for our trip – my dear friend who I’ve missed so much sacrificed time with her family, rented a car and drove here to meet us and did it as a surprise.

I am more than inspired – I am honored.




This quiche from the quaint little downtown area was lick the plate good.



Me. Honored and inspired and wearing my sassy hat.



It’s a horse with a fascinator!


Four women teeming with creativity, bravery and wicked humor.



Hope brimming




  1. And I’m sure Jenni enjoyed it just as much as you did! SO glad for all of you!

    What great hats!!!!! Hope you are getting some writing done in between eating all that delectable food! 🙂

  2. I keep watching the video. It’s the best girl scream I’ve ever heard.

    • I’m not sure I’ve ever girl shrieked like that before. You should be honored it was reserved for you. 🙂

  3. Man, you guys are a cute bunch! lol

  4. Happy you are having a great trip with friends! Can’t wait to update you on my week:)

  5. I don’t know why it’s taking me so long to get to know some of the other bloggers from the MOB Society…but i’m finally here checking out your site and wanted to say aloha! Lovely photos and obviously, you have a lovely heart as well. Look forward to following you now!

    • Aloha, Monica! I have checked in on your site several times because HAWAII! I’m fascinated by your boys running around with surf boards and your beautiful property. I think we should have a MOB Society writers weekend at your house. You know…if I can be so bold as to invite myself and fifteen others over to the home of someone I’ve never actually met. 😉

      Glad you popped in to say hi!

      • If you could get me invited I would absolutely outfit the Bob T with pontoons and paddle to the islands.
