Welcome to my blog!

I’m so glad you are here! Turning 60 was an awakening for me. As I approach 70, much too quickly, I think that it made me realize that, while life maybe a journey, there is an end, and making the most of each day by celebrating the little things make the journey fun and memorable.  With that in mind, I decided to share my ‘Celebrations and Sunsets’ passion with friends.

In this blog, I will post recipes, simple entertaining ideas, fashion trends, and healthy living.

Meet Laura!

Hi, I’m Laura, and I’m glad you’re here! As you can see, this pic is the inspiration for my “Celebrations & Sunsets” Blog. I’m with my husband, Steve, shortly after he proposed to me on the beach, which is a story for another time. I always say that the song, “God Bless the Broken Road that led me Straight to You” should be our theme song.

img_4595-5I recently retired from teaching second grade, and I now have the great opportunity to follow my passion, which is family, food, good friends & great times. I teach step aerobics and water aerobics, play tennis (a little golf) and love to cook. We never have to worry about running out of great wine to go with our meals. Steve is a true oenophile, and knows his wine! Feel free to contact us for wine suggestions.

My goal is to stay youthful in mind & body and share those ideas and great finds with friends. Making sure I’m not trying to look like my children, I’m on a search to find styles to compliment me.  I’m not a big believer in plastic surgery, but everyone has their own fountain of youth.  For me, regular exercise and healthy eating are key..although its hard to turn down a barbecue potato chip:)

I hope to share my adventures as I follow a new path in my life. I hope that you will share yours with me as well. Don’t forget to check out my new posts!

Cheers to new years!

  1. Dearest friend,
    Your are one in a million. If someone comes in your presence and is not infected by your smile, good food, and good company, they’d better check themselves. I’m so happy we’re friends.
