As cold as it is it could be worse.

Slip on your long-johns and flannels, your warm boots and favorite gloves, grab your coat and that hat with the funny looking earflaps, and let’s take a wintery walk through a couple centuries of Eastern Shore weather history.

Official records weren’t kept until the late 1800’s, so reliable climate data for our country’s formative years is hard to come by. There were, however, several documented blizzards and deep-freezes during this time that had significant impact on our early Chesapeake Bay ancestors.

January 27-28, 1772. Two to three feet of snow fell in two days. A half century had passed since any of the early colonists recorded a storm of such power, and back in 1717 it was New England that got clobbered. Around here, no non-native had ever seen anything like it. Because the storm was recorded in two future…

Erratic Expeditions

We shall some day be heeded, and everybody will think it was always so, just exactly as many young people believe that all the privileges, all the freedom, all the enjoyments which woman now possesses always were hers.

Brands I Want to (Finally) Try in 2018


We all have those brands we’ve never tried but have always kicked ourselves for still not buying! Here is my list of those brands:

Sunday Riley – I definitely want to start treating myself more to the expensive skincare brands. I’ve heard Sunday Riley is amazing and their products look interesting. Plus they have a lot for acne, which is definitely an issue I deal with.

Dermadoctor – Here’s another more expensive skincare brand I want to try. Their packaging is so simple and they have so many skincare products that I know would help my skin be amazing.

Farsáli – I’m absolutely obsessed with this brand’s Unicorn Essence…or at least obsessed with wanting it! I’m dying to try their formulas.

Hourglass Cosmetics – I’ve heard their foundations are really good and I really lo e the packaging they use. It seems like a no-brainer to try this brand!

This is a good one!


Hope and Confidence


Hope gets tickled

Confidence recharges it

The moment it goes down every time


Hope gets tickled by its own self, and puts the situation into a dilemma. Confidence brings assurances and makes it sound and strong. The battery of Hope gets down; when there is a full confidence of getting things done, it naturally recharges it.
Let Hope and Confidence come to ALL on this eve of Merry Christmas
