My name is Gina. I started blogging a little over 4 years ago on MySpace. I haven't blogged much for the past 2 years, but am excited to be resurrecting my blog and adding other subjects to it!!.
A few weeks ago, I posted a new profile picture on Facebook. Shortly after posting, a dear friend who I consider a second mom wrote and told me that I looked anorexic in the picture. I understood her point: In the picture, my hair is pulled back, and I’m wearing shades. Perhaps my face does look a […]
A few days ago, I was watching a show called “How Do I Look?” on the Style network. The show takes a person that dresses with poor fashion sense and gives them a fashion makeover (clothing/hair/makeup). [OK, yes, I AM a girl! I enjoy these types of shows, as it makes me smile to watch […]
Last weekend, I went out dancing with a friend. The last time I remember going to a dance club was with my then husband when we first got married, almost 20 years ago. It’s not that I don’t love to dance, but that I’ve been married/in a relationship, and, to be honest, it really wasn’t a […]
I’m not going to lie. I’ve fallen in love with this little coffee shop where I write. The atmosphere is laid back, the people are interesting to watch and the staff is always nice. Additionally, it is locally owned, which is a bonus. I’ve noticed as time has gone by that I’ve come to like my ‘coffee shop […]
Ok, this is going to be a bit of a non-Gina type blog, but at the same time a totally Gina blog. You see, my BFF, Lisa, gifted me with the Kreativ Blogger award. I don’t think I’m that ‘Kreativ’ of a blogger, but she loves me, and love is sometimes blind. Thank you, Lisa, […]
So, today is Wednesday, and Wednesday has become my favorite day of the week. Why? (you ask, cuz you’re curious like that) Because it’s my day to write, and I find great joy in writing. This morning as I’m buzzing along, singing with the music blasting (favorite pastime), I spot a couple of birds playing […]
I am not much into keeping up with the ongoings around the world, but I do watch CNN in the mornings while I run on the treadmill. I know, CNN isn’t a ‘favorite’ among many, but I like it because I can read the tickers across the bottom of the screen, watch the commentary and […]
Is it bad to say that I’m relieved my son is graduating from high school? There were several occasions where he would struggle with going to school. It was stressful on all of us, to say the least. And so, with the ‘normal’ emotions of any high school graduation, I feel relief. At the beginning of his last […]
When my youngest son was in elementary school, he had a “tendency” to erase holes in his school papers. WHY? You ask. Well, because he is a perfectionist. (not sure WHERE that comes from [cough]) It got so bad when he was in the first grade that he spent some time in “counseling.” He improved […]
(a graduation letter to my son…) he won’t get to read this until the 20th, so shhhhh…. 11 May 2012 Dear Brendon, I’m not sure that I know where to begin, but I will do my best. I know that right now everyone around you is reading a letter, and they are all reading practically […]
PLEASE pardon my 'mess'... I'm still fine-tuning the graphics and the content and, well... Let's just say I shouldn't have invited "company" in just yet, but I got too excited!
That said...I am so glad you're here!!
