It has come a long way in the last hundred years or so. Preschoolers to work, wondering if I had made the right choice, but pushing forward, because nothing else felt right. They include both pleasant as well as unpleasant experiences as well.
Here’s something I’m not proud to admit, but I’ll admit it just the same: Once in a while – a very, rare while – I have the strange, secret desire to become Paris Hilton. That’s right – Paris Hilton.

La Villa Romaine is Petersburg’s oldest continuously-operated B&B. But, once inside you may forget you’re in Virginia and swear you were in Paris. You have your choice of the Louis XV Room, with marble fireplace and 18th century Louis XV painted bed; Louis XVI Room, furnished in the Louis XVI style with a Louis XVI bed purchased at an antique market in France; the Provence Room featuring a Louis XV country French bed and antique Provence wash stand; or the Renaissance Room with Henri II furniture. Other rooms at La Villa Romaine are decorated in French pieces as well, including the dining room in Louis XV Country French style; the Library with French furnishings from the 17th, 18th and 19th Centuries; and the Formal Salon with a Pleyel Grand Piano made in Paris in the mid-1800s.

I have recently written about thoroughly enjoying my neighbors. I decided to celebrate them with a late summer, call it Fall, (we totally missed the summer) campfire with smores, wine, cheese and other offerings of food.

This is actually the part of entertaining I love – setting the stage, the interactive zones and of the food and folks of the party.
A sleeping mask. It’s tough to sleep with the light pollution of a hotel room. Your cozy sleep-giving hormones like complete darkness, not the light from the clock or that light-crack under the door.
Now 46 countries around the world celebrate Mothers Day although some of different dates. Obviously like most things today it is very much commercialised and card manufactures’, florists and gift companies like to capitalise on it. Very soon you will see gifts, cards; chocolates all dedicated to this day out on display in all the supermarkets. The day before Mothering Sunday will see the highest sales of mother’s day’s gifts in local shops as lots of people will be buying their mothers gifts.
Preschoolers to work, wondering if I had made the right choice, but pushing forward, because nothing else felt right. I remembered the loss of all my comfort zones and trappings when I left Detroit and relocated to Los Angeles in 1981.
The yellow diamond engagement ring that you do decide to purchase, should express the love that the two of you share with one another. Not just for the dollar value, but the uniqueness of the special bond you two now bestow. These rings will also symbolize the love the two of participate in for the long remaining years to come.
