sunrise AND sunset!

I've waxed poetic many times about life in 'the Burg' -- St. Petersburg, that is.  Besides being a crazy fun place to live, it really is an idyllic paradise.  It's unique.  It's a peninsula within a peninsular state.  When they were visiting, I told our great relatives and friends (Diane, Joe, Tina and Jenna), that...

diamonds are a girl’s best friend

Tomorrow, Richie Coldcuts and I are going on a little weekend getaway to celebrate nine years of wedded bliss.  That in itself is a little misleading because we've been together far longer.  Since we each have been divorced and had kids from our previous marriages we waited quite a while to tie the knot.  Waited...

ww – bedhead beats hot-head!

scooting around the ‘burg

Yes, it's true - - - we're scooters.  Which is to say we have scooters (think Vespa) and we tool around the 'burg on weekends.  Downtown St. Pete is way cool, way fun, and usually way crowded.  But richie coldcuts and I hop on the 'scoots' and it's the perfect way to check out what's...

livin’ in the ‘burg

At risk of getting some heat from friends, I want to share how great St. Petersburg is (we're not supposed to share the secret and draw too many folks here!).  Referred to as the 'burg by locals, it is a BIG small town.  Thriving, vibrant, on the water, young people, active people, dog-lovers, tons of...
