Gift Ideas for Couples Who Have Enough Stuff!

Gift Ideas for Couples Who Have Enough Stuff!

Even though our nest has emptied, our lives stay full of blessings and bounty. Work keeps us busy, and our friends and family (and grandkids!) keep us active and involved in life. Life is so busy, and the holiday season is no exception! But as the hubs and I have gotten older, and after 35 years of marriage, we realize that we don’t need as much “stuff”. There is literally not one single thing I can ask for this Christmas that I don’t already have enough of. I have enough clothes in my closet (Lord knows!), and if I want an outfit, I buy the outfit myself! I have plenty of purses and shoes. I absolutely DO NOT need another small appliance or kitchen gadget. I don’t want or need any more tchotchkes or figurines or home décor. So the hubs and I talked, and decided that we would gift each other with experiences and memories we could share together. I guess we’ve become sentimental in our midlife years! If you’re on the same page, read on for some clever ideas! Continue reading “Gift Ideas for Couples Who Have Enough Stuff!”

Anytime she’d come over, we’d end up in my closet, and I’d show her new tops and pants and shoes and bags, and she’d laugh, and pick through some of my other stuff, and I’d end up giving her things to take home, and then I’d do the same thing when I visited her. And now I’m doing that with my daughter. Repurposing, right? So when my Stitch Fix came, we thought it would be fun to try everything on together, showing that style has no age, and fashion is fun for all. I love how Amanda put her own spin on everything.  Continue reading “Mother/Daughter Stitch Fix Reveal”

My Favorite Things for October

My Favorite Things for October

We returned from our lovely week in New Hampshire to find that it was still in the high 80’s with a million percent humidity here at home. But yay! Our weather is finally feeling a bit more like Autumn, the days are getting shorter, and we can finally begin wearing all the fun fall fashions we’ve been dying to sport. Here in the south our fall weather is all over the place: Cool mornings, hot afternoons, wind, humidity, no humidity, rain or no rain. (Right now we desperately need rain!) Seriously. Like they say – “Wait five minutes and it will change.” I’m thankful however, because the changing season offers us an opportunity to try new styles, fashions and beauty products. Here’s a quick roundup of some of my favorites. Continue reading “My Favorite Things for October”
