Check out MoroccanOil Treatment Travel Size - Free Shipping Over $35

I think you might like this product I found at MoroccanOil Treatment Travel Size - Free Shipping Over $35.   Actually, I really found this through my mom who recently introduced me to this great oil that instantly softens your hair!  I had noticed a huge difference in how soft my mom's hair looked and I was wondering why, when a few days later I found out the reason as she showed me her little brown bottle almost empty of this great product!  Now she has to keep it under lock and key unless she wants to see it disappear by the hands of another huge fan.....WHO  ME ????  Never!!!

Posting from quaint little coffee house called Sugarlips!

This post is coming from Sugarlips ~ the new local coffee house located in the heart of Green Lake, WI!!!  This nook in the wall is new to the area and been thriving since this past April.  Just the other day, as my mom was driving through the streets of downtown Green Lake, my eye caught a glimpse of this new treasure; seeing as the town isn't very large, it doesn't take much to notice anything new around here.

This is the neatest little place, full of character and charm!  When you walk through the inviting entryway, there  is a little coffee bar where you order your coffee for here or to go.  The little espresso cups are made of clay and are also sold in the store's adjoining shop that is part of the coffee house itself.  It's a multi-purpose coffee house including gorgeous flowers and pretty stationary.  As I look around there is a cute little couple playing cards, a girl and her grandpa (with a full grey beard : ) playing dominoes, other people sitting at the espresso bar ordering drinks,  two women behind me having a girl conversation and still others who are browsing the web and socializing with their friends.

Green Lake has been and is the vacation spot of my family for the past 25 years!  Thanks to my wonderful grandma, we stay at her beautiful home right on the lake where we go swimming, water skiing, inner tubing, canoeing, sailing.... you name it!   Oh yes, whenever we go on the boat we also drink Coronas with lime, yes, ALWAYS with lime and no other way!!!  We also enjoy a good summer read, eat, sleep, float on the boat, have friends out to visit and throw around the water football with my brothers!   Well, I guess I should say goodbye to this coffee house and get back to the cottage, but I'm sure I'll be back for another cool and refreshing coffee drink!!!

Blogging - A whole new world!

Wow, learning how to blog is like learning how speak a whole new language in a way!  I used to think that it was a rather strange or impersonal way of expressing what was on ones mind, but now, it seems more and more that it is a great way to be creative; learning how to piece thoughts, articles, pictures, fascinating web-sites all together and being able to share them so easily with others.  While I am a strong advocate of the good old fashioned snail mail, this seems quite fantastic - being able to keep in touch with others in a more creative way than just the usual and occasional facebook message.   While the hand written note can carry a good story or share the happenings of life, this avenue seems to be perfect for the creative mind of the woman where the arsty side can come out in the pictures and articles we post.  Thanks to a dear friend of mine (with whom I will be traveling to Europe come this Fall!) I was inspired by her creativity, expressive of her wonderful personality, to start blogging!  Thank goodness for this inspiration because, being the non-computer friendly person that I am, I'm bound and determined to trudge through and master the workings of this computer and its ways!  It will be a nice way to stay in touch with those back home and share with those who care to follow, the echos of my heart!  As I continue filling in this blog, the whole picture of my life will continue coming together with vibrant colors added one color at a time;  echos of the past, echos from my dreams for the future and echos to be had from all the grand adventures to come in Europe this Fall!!!
