Playing In The Clouds

More Than A Day To BBQ

Reposting a blog entry from Memorial Day 2010 in Westport. 

I can't bare to imagine how many more young men and women have been killed since this post.

Chasing Rainbows

Preparing for an early night in, I showered and put on my pj's at 7:00pm. As I'm about to turn on Netflix, my son yells upstairs that the rain has stopped and he thinks there may be a rainbow outside. So we jump in the car while I'm still in my pj's and head to the beach, camera in tow.

Mother's Day 2014

Three weeks ago, 276 girls awoke to a nightmare. On the night of April 14th a gang of heavily armed militants attacked their dormitory at the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, a town in Nigeria's Borno state. They shot the guards, loaded the girls into trucks and drove them away into the forest.- CNN

The world is horrified.

Mother's Day is a day of joy and flowers and time spent with loved ones. While we are all doing that here in America, this savagery is in the back of all mothers' minds. So instead of putting up images of beautiful moms today, I am going to share my pic, like the rest of the internet is doing, with the hashtag #bringbackourgirls because that's really the only gift we want for Mother's Day this year.
