Ronnie died. Two words and life for his wife Irene and family and all of us who knew him has forever been changed. It scares me – this mortality thing. He was my friend for most of my life and will be greatly missed. Rest In Peace
Well, it only took 2 weeks to miss my little pumpkin and get back on an airplane to see Adriana and my daughter
What we do for love – no limitations
Back to my daughter s house to be with her and my granddaughter
Thank goodness for air flights to get me there in a matter of a few hours. Adriana looks like a baby now. No more newborn 😇
I love my two girl dogs. Being away from them for 7 weeks was difficult for me except that I had a little baby to occupy my heart. Did they miss me? Hiring a dog walker a few times a week was the best decision I made for them. Christa gave them the love and attention that they get from me. I’m going to visit my daughter and granddaughter next week for 6 days with Tim. Exciting I’m obsessed and hooked. It’s all good. I’m floating in babyland
After 7 weeks of being in heaven with my daughter and granddaughter, I am leaving for home. So bittersweet
Seems like yesterday as well as a lifetime. How can that be?
I’m sitting on the plane, seat 13D aisle We have a full flight heading south to West Palm Beach. In 2 hours and 32 minutes, I will be home. Home? I’ve been home for the past 7 weeks. I have the gift of being at home wherever my heart feels love. I’m blessed to have many homes.
Holding my little Adriana morning noon and night has been a miracle. I’d just gaze at her sleeping or not for hours. Then I look at my daughter Emily with the same unconditional love especially when she’s holding this child with the same love.
I’ll soon be back 💕
In rereading my latest posts, one would not think that the world was anything but perfect. I’ve been writing through the eyes of a first time grandparent as I hold and kiss and caress my little tiny granddaughter. Yes the world is in utter chaos – ongoing pandemic, pulling out of Afghanistan, families and friends divided over politics, vaccines, LBGTQ, abortion, climate change, on and on….
But I’m choosing not to go out to this world but stay safe in a place of love and pure joy with hope that the world might catch up to where I am. After all, I don’t want this little 8 pound bundle of ecstasy to be exposed to what is “out there”. I will do everything in my power to protect her.
Well….. I’ve been with my daughter and new month old granddaughter for over a month now
I don’t want to go
When I return in November Adriana Isobel will be 3 months looking totally different from the infant I now hold in my arms. She fits in the crux of my left arm. Weeks from now she won’t
I look at my beautiful daughter remembering her as an infant. Such joy such love th hen and even more today if that’s at all possible. Yes it is
I am blessed
The Bliss of Grandmother Hormones

I can so identify with this now that I have a granddaughter 💕
It has been a while since I have posted. I seem to be all over the place with my activities, therefore not spending any time on any one thing at any great length or time. It is all good though. Life is extremely busy, at least in my mind, these days awaiting the arrival of Baby Girl Laruffa, my first grandchild, my baby girl’s baby girl. Joy is overflowing, amazement is plentiful, life is beautiful.
I’ve been taking a few doula classes and absolutely love it. My daughter Emily asked me to be with her and her husband Dom throughout the childbirth and labor and delivery.
I never expected this honor. I am blessed
