Momi’m margaret. or peggy. or margo or maggie or hazey. confused? you should be. it’s friendly teasing and terms of endearment. mostly from my hubby and kids. often from my friends. i’m never certain how i will be addressed but i am certain of this: i am a wife, mother, friend, sister, blogger, photographer at heart. i adore cooking and travel, good food and music. long drawn out family dinners. and entertaining.

hubby was my college sweetheart. small town girl falls for big city boy. very clichè. it was intense and we married and moved to the big city. we spent the first two years exploring the city. then we had babies……

my blog is the place where i come to vent about all the things i love — most importantly, my hubby, kids and friends, + my unhealthy obsession with instagram and photography + our travels. please remember: you are here by your own free will, so please be kind. what goes around, comes around…keep the circle positive & loving. {i believe in karma!} i cherish connecting with my readers. so please leave a comment, it will truly make my day!


that’s clark.  or hubs or hubby or bruce.   and the subject of many a post.  he provides me with never ending blog material.  he loves to travel and has Clarkbeen known to give a tour or two.  he’s filled with knowledge and facts and is one of the smartest men I know. like his sons, he loves his hometown chicago sports teams.  most especially his beloved sox and hawks.  but nothing holds a candle to his true passion in life.  golf.  he loves the game.  and he’s good at it.  and is happiest when chasing that little white ball around the golf course.

during the long winter months you’ll find him on the weekends behind an apron.   cooking fun meals.  with a nice glass of wine in hand.  and jazz or blues streaming throughout the house.  he has an impressive wine collection and loves good cigars.  he’s the glue that holds the family together.  he has a heart as big as the ocean and would give you the shirt off his back.  he’s selfless and giving.  and fun!  like everyone who knows him, I love and adore this man.  he’s been my bff for 30 years and counting.  and i plan to hang around him for 30+ more years.



bruce robt ~ my first born son.  a fighter and survivor ~ born 3 months premature.  he’s witty & sweet & has a huge heart.  loves travel & technology.  and planes.  and anything to do with flying.  he’ll drop everything and take off for some exotic place at the drop of a hat ~ and he has.   he is happiest when he is off on an adventure.  a happy newlywed ~ married to lauren.  he is a  joy to be around.  one word description ~ kindhearted

lauren ~ the kind of daughter-in-law every parent dreams of.  she is compassionate & selfless.  she is strong & determined.  a hard worker & an amazing nurse.  soon to be a nurse practitioner. married to our first born.  boston born and raised.  a die hard red sox & patriots fan.  you can find her flying back and forth to boston when her schedule permits.  one word description ~ selfless

scottie ~ my middle son.   loves music & dancing & his friends.  a true sports enthusiast.  loves his hometown teams ~ sox, bulls, hawks, bears.  would gladly give it all up to spend each day attending any kind of sports event.  he’s happiest when surrounded by his peers.  or in any social setting.  not afraid to cut up the rug at weddings or parties. lovable & compassionate & loyal.  he’s a peacemaker & non confrontational.  one word description ~ diplomatic.

brian ~ my youngest son.  a natural-born leader.  he’s independent & street smart.   he loves the social scene & music.  loves his fraternity brothers & college. faces life head on.  not much holds him back.  he’s political and loves a good debate.  he’s stubborn and determined.  and smart.   you’ll find him with a permanent smile on his face ~ and usually up to something.  and he’s funny.  he’s happiest when in charge of running the show.  and he’s good at it.  he’s going places.  one word description ~ knowledgeable.

    • I was wet behind the ears when I started blogging a few years ago. I had no idea what a domain was or how to make a blog post. Everything I have learned was self taught. If I can do it, so can anyone. Very simple if you take advantage of the help forums on WP and simply ask questions along the way. Good Luck!
