Sarah "Barracuda" Palin

It's a Cinderella story and America loves a Cinderella story. I wasn't even going to vote Republican this election (was going to vote Right to Life party) but I think I've just changed my mind.

Senior Pictures time

My 17 year old daughter Veronica had her senior pictures taken by Jane McDonagh.

She has these 2 of the photos she took on her blog that you can see here.

We are so happy with the way these pictures came out and I can't wait to see the rest of them. Jane only takes photos in natural light and outside. These pictures were taken at Minute Man State Park in Concord, MA. She is very talented and Veronica really enjoyed her photo shoot.

I am going to try to have a family portrait done next summer so if you are looking for senior pictures- check out Jane McDonagh Photography based in northern Massachusetts.

A friend sent me this picture of my Becs who is almost 3. This picture really says summer, childhood and innocence and it's a reminder to appreciate it because it's all too fleeting.

Nature's first green is gold.
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

"Nothing Gold Can Stay" by Robert Frost.

Romantic Homes Magazine Giveaway

When I first saw this headline I thought actual Romantic Homes were being given away!

But it is the magazine from My Cottage in the Making blog.

I am posting this not only to offer you all (all 5 or 6 of you) a chance to win but because I get a second chance to win by posting this! I may be mercenary but I am scrupulously honest.

I hope I win! I hope I win! I hope I win!

Happy 20th Anniversary to Us!

To celebrate we went to dinner at The Sole Proprietor, a restaurant I have wanted to go to for years! The food was wonderful. The shrimp from the shrimp cocktail was so big I felt like I should have been using a knife and fork! I also had the tomato basil (pronounced TOE-mato Bay- Zeal)soup, lobster for a main course and for dessert the 2 Chocolate Sauce Terrine.

Here's to the next 20 years!
