June ... the Grand Ya Ya

Remember last Monday?  My love of a plan?  Well, last week didn't go quite as planned.   

Instead, I found myself in Atlanta with my Dad ... Celebrating my Mother's Life.  And what a life it was!

June was a presence ... you knew whether she liked you or didn't.  She was a straight shooter.  Every day started at the IHOP for coffee, breakfast and a good political conversation!  She had opinions ... BIG ones, in case you don't know your own congressmen or senators, let me know ... she has a list of all of them with their direct telephone numbers!  I used to tease her that she might be on the "list" at the White House.  She was proud of that!

She was the most positive human I have ever known.  She believed in the power of Positive Thinking and Mind Over Matter.  That was her Mantra.

My sweet parents celebrated their 57th Wedding Anniversary this year ... What a wonderful testament to each of them and the power of their Love.

Life is such a journey ... children pulling you one way ... parents another.  I wouldn't have it any other way ... I have been blessed.  

Count YOUR Blessings This Week ... and live life to the fullest ... this is not a trial run!  

Thank you all for continuing to check in with me while I have been gone.  I am back to a lot of Design this week ... My Mother would insist!




  1. beautifully said. You made me cry before 8am. This was great, because far too often...people don't celebrate the life lived. Thinking of you today.

  2. Oh Kim, I am so sorry. It is wonderful to see such a beautiful post about a life well-lived and I am sad that you had to say goodbye. Prayers for your family on their way.

  3. My thoughts are with you new friend. I wish I could have know your Mom. She sounds like my kind of Gal!

  4. Kim,

    What a wonderful tribute to your Mother! She sounds like such a cool lady and you how amazing that your parents were together 57 years- quite a life for them and you! My thoughts are with you and your family at such a tough time...especially your Dad.

  5. I'm so sorry to hear about your mother, Kim. She sounds like an amazing lady. How lucky you are to have had her! I'll be thinking of you. Jennifer

  6. I'm sorry to hear this Kim. If getting back into it is what she would want, and you're ready, then by all means get back into it. I'm sure you will find her in all that you do. xo

  7. レイバン サングラスは、韓国でも大人気らしい。この間、あの激売れバンドBIGBANGの取材に行ったら、BIGBANGのメンバー全員がRay Ban サングラスを着用していた。レイバン RB2140を着用してるGDさんがあまりにもかっこよすぎて、目合わせなくなってしまった。
