Heart of the Hurricane by Nancy Wolfe Kimberly

Heart of the Hurricane by Nancy Wolfe Kimberly

Nancy Wolfe Kimberly, a brilliant artist and reader of my blog from New Orleans, Louisiana sent me this stunning piece as a housewarming gift.  It made me appreciate the connection between bloggers/writers and readers.  I hope one day to visit your shores and give you a big hug.  The Heart of the Hurricane is on our living room wall. Mister and I love this piece and we’ve received so many compliments.  Thank you, Nancy. You’re beautiful!

Be sure to check out Gator Girl Art.  Nancy has a wonderful range of art via Facebook and Etsy.  Her art will add a touch of color and beauty to your home.

Beautiful piece by Nancy Wolfe Kimberly has found a special place in our home.

A recent addition to our living room.  Our "Samoan Corner" features a Fue and To'oto'o, used by talking chiefs.  The Kava Bowl is used in Samoan ceremonies accompanied by three carved Naifi (knives/axes).

Mister and I enjoyed a vacation in Samoa.  We were happy to see family and enjoy mango season (my favorite fruit).  Samoa is a special place for us as we are both of Samoan descent and it is the place we first met as mentioned in this post.

We spent a day deep in the forest of Utualii preparing food using a traditional cooking method known as an Umu, an earth oven.  This practice is commonly used in Polynesia.  Mister was happy going back to his roots and we enjoyed the company of his siblings with a few bottles of Vailima.

Breakfast & Coffee date with Mister at one of our favorite places, The Cozy Cafeteria.  Mister had the Big Breakfast and I had the Salmon Bagel with Avocado.

I have recently discovered, Rekordelig.  A gorgeous cider made in Sweden.  So delicious with lots of fruit.

I stumbled across Trent Shelton and I love his frame of mind.
