Use to...

Hi Friends

Well it's August and I love it!  Back to school, I use to!  New clothes, teachers, schedules, homework.  Report cards do they still call them, report cards?  For all parents, kids and teachers,  I use to.  I love watching and listening to kids and parents talking about their futures making plans that will shape young lives, it makes me smile and I use to.  Don't get me wrong, this is a happy post!

My loving man and I had a great date night!  I surprised him with a wonderful meal planned by a chef who served food and introduced us to wonderful new recipes.  We met people and learned more about how to prepare and serve food with great things from "Olive In A Bottle".  I use to cook for four, now only two. I use to do so much more, I use to be thinner, younger, but some things never change, like our smiles !  So, here is "Use To" wine, bread, and a bicycle that reminds me of being young, I use to be young!  Cheers, to Use to...


  1. Debbie I love all the pink, especially your pretty lipstick. I'm also a sucker for a bike in the garden. Lovely flowers.

  2. I like thinking of what I used to do and be, some depress me and some make me happy!! Cheers to where we are in our lives right now, with wonderful husbands and pink flowers and lips!!

  3. Cheers indeed! I think of all the things I used to do ... and how things used to be....some make me feel happy and some make me glad those are by gone times.

    Hope you have a Happy Sunday night- xo Diana

  4. It's nice to look back over your life and think about things you used to do. But, every season of life has its own rewards. Sounds like you had a lovely evening. I love the photo of the pink bike with the flowers and wine -- very pretty!
