God says he will never give us more than we can handle. Sometimes I wonder about this sweet tooth of mine. Cake, cookies, pie or chocolate—I love them all. Ah, but my favorite dessert is a luscious crème brûlée. Perhaps it’s a favorite because my husband and I are usually on vacation when we indulge in this particular delight.
Like many women I have a collection of shoes: tennis shoes, strappy sandals, heels and a collection of boots. I must confess, however, I don’t have what some might call a shoe fetish. It’s quite the opposite: my preferred footwear is none. Barefootin it is sheer bliss. I love the feel of the soft carpet indoors or the cool green grass outside, but nothing compares with walking on the beach and pushing my bare toes into the warm grains of sand.
I enjoy my roomy SUV, but lately I’ve had an urge to return to my pre-mommy car, a little red Porsche. Driving with the top down on a fresh summer day. Love it! Although, it tends to go faster than the SUV, just saying …
A picnic by a cool mountain stream is awesome. Driving through the desert is lovely. Blame it on the fact I grew up surfing and playing in the ocean, I love the beach. The ocean is one of the many reasons I adore living in southern California. And Maui with its wonderful beaches is my favorite vacation spot. I’m thinking I need to be in Maui, barefoot on the beach eating a fabulous crème brûlée. **sigh**
Animals, I am enamored with them all. Given the space I would probably adopt a whole menagerie. For now I adore my two furry writing muses, my sweet dog, Lucky, and my gorgeous Himalayan, Sassy.
