Formentera

When C. Smith suggested that we head to Spain for our next vacation I was definitely on-board and I knew what my “A” as going to be – Formentera. First let me explain what “A” even means. Whenever we travel we both make a list of our A, B and C priorities. A = not leaving until I see it, B = Let’s try very hard to see it, C = Would like to see it if we can make it work. Truthfully we rarely make it into C territory because our A’s...

Sunscreen, Betsey Johnson and a Village

Music Appreciation 2017

I am not one for New Years Resolutions per se. I have in the past made goals – send more hand written letters in the mail, give out more compliments, that type of thing, but I wanted to try something different for 2017…Music.  So I pitched the idea to C. Smith – we immerse ourselves in one artist per week. Into their lyrics, their melodies, their riffs, their genius, and C. was on board. We have a plan, now where to...
