Happy New Year, sisters!
Can you believe we are on the heels of a brand new decade? I swear the older I get the faster the years go. I actually had a dream that I was 70 years old last night. ( I am 58 years young). Some of you are already there, ( thank goodness) and many of you are creeping up to it. Some souls never make it, and others live well beyond. What’s my point here? I think as we get older we become more mindful of how we spend our precious time ( and who we spend it with) because we truly appreciate what a blessing ” our ” time on this earth truly is. I always say, it’s never too late to begin a long-held dream or take a risk on a new one that you didn’t see coming! Let’s walk into the new year together with a keen eye and open hearts. Where will your footsteps take you? Or better yet, where will YOU take your footsteps? Continue reading
Oh how I love this time of year! The crispness in the air, the crunching of leaves underfoot and cozy nights in, under fuzzy blankets. It’s time to dust off your favorite Fall recipes and gather with friends and family and celebrate all you have to be thankful and grateful for. Come on in for a little Thanksgiving Wish from our house to yours! Continue reading

We celebrated the amazing life of my 97 years young at heart mother in love this week. What a treasure she was to all who knew her. Let me introduce you!
Me in my kitchen floral studio on design day for a wedding.
I’ve been thinking a lot about what it means to be a work’n farmgirl over 50 lately. Probably because I’m closing in on 60 in a few short years and I’m finding it hard to believe. Some of our peers have already retired or, are about to. But lately, I have met so many women 50 and over who are launching new businesses, building new dreams and growing in new ways and I just find that so inspiring and interesting. Let’s discuss shall we? Continue reading
Happy Summer! Me oh my, isn’t it great to feel the warmth of the sun on your face again? You know what else summer is great for? Besides family time, beach days, cookouts, gardening, baseball, traveling, camping and glamping? Weddings! I’m so excited to share a very special styled photo shoot that my daughter and I ( along with a few of my talented wedding vendor peers) conjured up last September to showcase the seasonality of local flowers for weddings and events. If you were a beach bride you’ll love this windswept beach bride editorial, and if you or someone you know is dream’n of saying I do on the beach, sit back and enjoy the ocean breeze while I tell you all about how this amazing day came together.

Happy Spring! I hope you’re feeling the awakening, too! Spring bulbs are popping up here ( the ones the squirrels didn’t get, anyway) and a new growing season is on the horizon. Speaking of growing, the month of March marks my 8th year writing to you from the shorelines! I thought it would be fun to reach back into the archives and re-share some oldies but goldie’s posts with you. Grab your favorite comfy spot, pour yourself something delicious and enjoy some golden nuggets from the Beach Farmgirl. Continue reading
Let me just start with saying that January and February have been quite momentous around here! Our oldest flew the nest for sunnier shorelines on the West coast at the end of January and our youngest just celebrated her 21st birthday. This momma is feeling so many emotions I might as well be riding a roller coaster at Disneyland! I know some of my sisters can relate. How did you cope when your chick’s flew the coop? Continue reading
We’ve got some catching up to do! Happy Thanksgiving! Happy Winter Solstice! Merry Christmas AND Happy NEW Year! Whew! Gosh, I hope life has been treating you all well and that you’re feeling healthy and happy, warm and cozy, safe and satisfied. Now that winter is here and Christmas has passed I have a confession… I’ve been on somewhat of a holiday hiatus since Thanksgiving. After I dug up the dahlias I sort of went dormant… Just like the garden but, in a good way! Continue reading
My handsome Yankee and Max at the Tiny House Festival
My hubby has been on a Tiny House kick lately and I’m not so sure how I feel about it!
Could YOU live in a Tiny House? Would you live in a Tiny House? Could you, would you?

Happy Fall! Are you ready for chilly mornings, cozy sweaters and pumpkin spice EVERYTHING? I sure am!
