…..sunrise at my beach in new jersey this morning. i’ve seen this scene many, many times while i was growing up and it is still so beautiful to me. notice how i said “my” beach as i think for those of us who grew up at the 33rd-34th street beach we all feel very strong ties to this beach as we had so much fun playing and growing up there. truly, it’s the first place i go when i arrive on the island to put my toes in the sand.
what a lovely way to start this day to find this photo from a friend and it somehow seems like you can feel christmas in the air there.
have a wonderful day!

Really Cute Hats
This week, as soon as I opened the package from Deborah at Konjono
–Really Cute Hats
, my daughters couldn’t wait to wear their new hats! Luckily for them, we had a really cold weekend and even had a dusting of snow, so they wore their hats all weekend
In preppy pink and green, with Maryland crab ribbon, too, these are the most adorable hats!
They truly are Really Cute Hats!
The perfect gift for boys and girls, the Really Cute Hats come in sizes ranging from infants to big kids. My daughters usually complain about hats after a while and don’t like to wear them. They kept these soft fleece hats on all day long and said that they were very comfortable over their ears. Of course, the compliments from multiple strangers about the Really Cute Hats probably also motivated them to keep on the hats, too! At least 5 different people stopped to comment.
There are hats in a variety of colors with whimsical ribbons and patterns for boys and girls. One of these hats would make a perfect shower gift for a winter baby. The dolphin and whales on the grosgrain ribbon are so preppy!
An item that I really like from Konjono is the collection of team spirit hats. Stay warm in style at the next game with these hats. Isn’t this one perfect for a game in Annapolis?
Thanks, Deborah, for making our cold winter a little bit more colorful and fun! My girls and I love your Really Cute Hats.
Add a pop of color to your child’s winter ensemble with a Really Cute Hat!
2:30pm tomorrow. where will you be? who will you be cheering for?
this will be our second year in georgia, and not attending the game live but of course we are there in spirit. we continue to try to entice our new friends here to become navy fans especially on this special game day.
actually, this morning i had a great conversation with a 1st grade classmate ( who is a huge GEORGIA fan ) i explained to her all about army-navy game day, with all the history, the march on’s,the spirit spots, the exciting and thrilling minutes, the whole thing. she, was not so moved at first until i told her about my favorite bit the jumpers and i sort of hooked her. i moved into the blue & gold song at the end and showed her a u tube video and i think she might be watching tomorrow!
so, 3 cheers to our little friend holly and to both teams tomorrow.
our friends at cutie patooties? gaye has a wonderful shop in downtown brunswick and has lots of hats in stock, and yes she monograms too! it’s chilly down here, stop in and see her you will so enjoy it!

december 1st, World AIDS Day. a day that i wish was not a day or a day on anyone’s calendar especially the nearly half a million babies that were born with HIV last year.
today’s info is from my friend julie – “spread the word: 56,000 reported new cases of AIDS in the US last year. 16,000 new orphans from AIDS. DC fastest growing HIV/AIDS community in the country. Stigma still so strong in this country that people fear to speak their status. Stigma is so high in Ethiopia people don’t get treatment. Today is World AIDS Day. Be aware, Be educated, Be supportive.”
