What Have We Been Up To

Another Year Gone By

Another Year Gone By It is hard to believe that it has been one year since our wedding. So much has changed, and we have so much to feel thankful for. Our families are all healthy and seemingly happy, and though I lost a close friend and client (RIP, Bob T), I gained so much from him when he was alive that I consider myself blessed and fortunate. It is also Pedro's birthday this month, and for a man of 51 years of age he has nothing to compl [ + ]

Summertime Funnertime I already know what you are thinking: "Shereen? Funnertime is not a word". I know, I know. However, it SHOULD be. If you can forgive my grammatical liberties, read on. :) This time of year is so special for Pedro and I for so many reasons. First, South Florida takes a breather as far as traffic and volume of people are concerned. Don't get me wrong, we always look forward to the influx of Northerners. Conversely, it is [ + ]

Bathroom Remodeling Blues What have we been up to.....Well, we decided that we needed to finally remodel the bathroom. It seemed like an easy concept, so we trotted off to a store, picked out all of the things we wanted, and set a delivery date. It's that easy, right? HA! Not so much! For starters, there are permits to pull. What do we know? We haven't renovated a bathroom before. This means we need to hire people to do the work. Another se [ + ]

Winter through Spring Holiday Time

Winter Through Spring Holiday Time This is one of my favorite times of year for a very simple reason: I love to decorate my house according to the holidays. I went from Christmas and Hanukkah to Valentine's Day to Saint Patrick's Day, and it will end, sadly, with Easter and Passover. OK. I suppose I could decorate for Cinco De Mayo, Bastille Day, July 4th, and a slew of other Hallmark days, but I find that ending after Easter leaves me some [ + ]

New Year's Fun This year, we had an exceptionally fun New Year's Eve. For me in particular, the fact that I stayed up past 8pm. was a major miracle. Imagine the fun I was having when at 2am, I called it quits. What made this year so special? Firstly, it was my first New Year as Mrs. Rios. To me, after 50 years, to finally get it right was quite an accomplishment. Secondly, I cooked up a storm. I went with a Greek theme, and just went wil [ + ]

Hello! Forgive the break in communication. We were updating our site. Recently, we had a very moving experience. We traveled to Tennessee to visit family. This wasn't just any trip, though. We had several BIG moments: 1. My birthday was celebrated (I turned 50). 2. Pedro and my Mother met for the first time. 3. Pedro's beautiful daughter, Allissa and I met for the first time. 4. Pedro and I both met our grandson, August for the [ + ]

Holiday Reflections

Holiday Reflections We are a family of mixed faith. I know we are not alone, but at this time of year, it is of particular importance for my faith. Other times of year, it is particularly important for my husband's faith. One thing is clear: In our family, prayer is prayer and faith is faith. We don't care that I am Jewish and my husband is not for the High Holidays. We DO care that we get to temple and pray together, to the same G-d, among a [ + ]

The Hurricane that Wasn't      For the first time in years, I actually decided to prepare for the hurricane threat. Four days before the storm was supposed to hit (or not hit), I dragged myself to the nearest discount grocery retail store. I won't name names, but the one I went to ended in **rt. You can fill in the blanks if you so choose. I admittedly went in for supplies, but what I got was a show as well. I planned to purchase my [ + ]
