Still Standing (and dancing)

Ever have one of those days when a song just keeps running through your head? That almost annoying tune that if you don’t burst out singing in the office or while preparing dinner you feel like you’ll just… burst? Well, if the song is by Elton John, it’s anything but annoying! And if you (or me… this is all completely hypothetical, of course ;-) ) happen to start singing … and dancing … to it, who knows? Maybe you’ll start the next flash mob sensation! Just take a look at what the lovely city of Galveston did. To take a line from their uplifting video, “Life isn’t about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.”

Send me to Margaritaville

Ok, I’ll be the first to admit it. I do love Christmas as much as the next person, but give me a Christmas that’s green! The weather’s getting colder and my thoughts are turning to warmer climates. The Florida Keys, Caribbean, Virgin Islands, the Gulf Coast – Corpus Christi, Padre Island . . . I am a Texas girl, after all – I love our Texas Coast in the fall! Anywhere I can dig my toes in the sand, sit back, relax and escape from the hustle and bustle of the busy season. If I can’t be there in person, I can at least be there in spirit!

This beautiful palm tree at sunset wrapped canvas set is the perfect way to escape to St. Lucia in the Caribbean in your own home. Ahhhh, take me away to Margaritaville!
