I just finished watching the new documentary about Winehouse titled “Amy.”
What a heart-wrenching film!
This woman had an unbelievable raw talent that was wasted away by drugs, alcohol and bulimia.
I highly recommend this film:
After I watched it I was thinking of the time I was introduced to her music.
I was in my early 20s visiting London and I wandered into a music shop. I went directly to the staff said:
“I would like a cd by an artist who is big here and will make it big in America.”
The staff member immediately went to a display of Winehouse CDs and handed me this one:
I had no CD player to use while in London, so I had to wait until I returned home to listen to it. And boy it was just magnificent. I eventually donated it to my local library so other people could discover Winehouse for themselves.
I must admit, after watching the documentary, that the albums do her voice no justice! Some of the clips of her kind of informally singing, were so amazing. You don’t hear that sounds in the albums!
Cheers to the late Amy Winehouse!

Here are some lovely pieces from my new sister-in-law
(well my husband’s sister-in-law) – all the same to me!
Check out her Etsy page!
The third photo is my favorite – Sue took some flowers from our centerpieces and pressed them into clay, and hand colored them. SO precious!

Love the new LL Bean backpack from my husband!
I think the best part is the new feature – the headphone holder in the front pocket!

Everyone has their own definition(s) of what love is. Here’s one…
Today I went to CVS to get my husband deorderant since he is down for the count with his chopped up finger. Running around, looking up and down the aisles I catch a glimpse of my father – in the FEMININE CARE PRODUCT AISLE – looking VERY confused. Teasingly, I said “sir can I be of some assistance?” That’s right my father ran to CVS to get my mom her lady products. He was standing there with an empty bag of Kotex and a piece of a box of panty liners, trying to buy the items for my mom. I can imagine this is a challenge for any man since that whole aisle gives ME a headache and I shop there all the time….
What a dedicated husband….
The things we do for love….

I don’t think I have ever felt THIS overwhelmed. And it is a GOOD overwhelmed of course.
We recently had our wedding announcement published in the Bristol Phoenix. I really just did it so my parents could enjoy it. They do enjoy reading the local paper and seeing familiar faces- surely a Bristolian thing.
What seems like EVERYDAY this week, patrons at my job kept commenting about our lovely photo and how happy they are for us. A few people even put the announcement on their refrigerator. It is so incredibly touching to know so many people care. Granted we live in a small town, but still, their kind words are welcomed and so appreciated.
