National Coffee Day, Hooray!

National Coffee Day - September 29
Happy National Coffee Day!

Oh, the brew I find so dear
We now have reason to give cheer.
‘Tis National Coffee Day indeed,
So all your lovers will take heed.
They’ll trail the aromatic scent
to fill their cups with lusciousness,
the perfect brew is time well spent.
So here’s to the dark and rich and bold,
Raise your cup ’cause you’ve been told.
‘Tis National Coffee Day,
Hooray!
~Sherry Bridges

Snazzy Snapshots – At The Beach

Beach Tide Pools at Corona Del Mar, CA

I love to take pictures, and once in a while I snag a few…

Snazzy Snapshots!

“In every out-thrust headland, in every curving beach, in every grain of sand there is the story of the earth.”
~ Rachel Carson

A Flying Seagull at the Beach Tide Pools in Corona Del Mar, CA

“… so that the monotonous fall of the waves on the beach, which for the most part beat a measured and soothing tattoo to her thoughts seemed consolingly to repeat over and over again…”
~ Virginia Woolf, To the Lighthouse

A Gorgeous Sunset at Huntington Beach, CA

“Every time I stand before a beautiful beach, its waves seem to whisper to me: If you choose the simple things and find joy in nature’s simple treasures, life and living need not be so hard.”
~ Psyche Roxas-Mendoza

Can you hear the rush of the waves; smell the salty air; feel the sand between your toes?

Do you have any grand beach memories?

Happy Flag Day!!!

Good Morning, America! It’s Flag Day. Go outside and fly your flag! Be proud, and remember what this country truly stands for beneath the modern self-puffery of the politicians. Thank you, Betsy Ross, for a beautiful, powerful, and emotion evoking symbol for our country.

“Our flag is our national ensign, pure and simple, behold it!
Listen to it!  Every star has a tongue, every stripe is articulate.”
— Robert C. Winthrop (1809-1894), Senator from Massachusetts

I found a couple of other pictures to spur your patriotism, one of which is a vintage 1917 poster for Flag Day. Enjoy.

God Bless America!

Welcome to Life With Lorelai

Corona Del Mar, California

“At times our lives seem like that of a tranquil island in a sea of chaos. The battle is to keep this sea of chaos at bay and not let it wash us away into utter chaos.” ~Sanjeeva Ananthan

My battle at the moment is learning how to cope as a single mother of a 17-year-old daughter. After being separated for nearly four years, her father, and my soon-to-be ex-husband moved out this past weekend, and her brother is away at college. Rory and I are starting our lives over. This prospect is exciting, invigorating, and a whole lot of scary and stressful.

I wanted to start this blog to journal my experience. My pitfalls, my triumphs, fun times, happy times, sad times, in-need-of venting times. My hope is that you will tag along in my adventure as I forge a new path.

Life With Lorelai will bring you a varietal smorgasbord of topics from the trials of the process of starting life over to my interests in writing, cooking, gardening, singing karaoke, and more. If you have any suggestions for a topic, please let me know.

I look forward to getting to know you…

~Lorelai

A New Book…

“No, this is not the beginning of a new chapter in my life; this is the beginning of a new book! That first book is already closed, ended, and tossed into the seas; this new book is newly opened, has just begun! Look, it is the first page! And it is a beautiful one!”
― C. JoyBell C.
