I am a notebook-aholic. There. I said it. I am sure many people can stand up and say, “Hello Nan. I am a notebook-aholic, too.” I’ve never met a notebook I didn’t like. I especially fell in love with the Clairefontaine and Eccolo lines. Silky smooth, soft paper, blank or lined. Fountain pen-ready (did I..

I’ve noticed blogs that say “Make resolutions!” Then there are those that say, “Don’t make resolutions!” Then “Let us just walk right, talk right and spit right, and everything will be OK!” Worst of all: “Ignore it all and stay the same way!!” Hey!

I am using a few of those posts here until I’m done unpacking and reorganizing my house and website!) What’s in a name? My name is not unique. It was heartbreaking when I was younger..

A while back, I mentioned that I would be adding specific posts to my blog. One is the Aloha Peaceful Life series that Momma’s Soapbox and I began when she was in Hawaii for a month. It’s on haitus at the moment (very temporarily) until she gets her life back (smile). With college campus visits,..
