Video Plane Landing in Saint Martin


Ryan Kendrick & Billy Crawford Dueling Guitars at Wolf Hills

So proud of Ryan's musical abilities...here he is dueling guitars with his mentor Billy Crawford.

Saint Martin Trip

No we didn't take a cruise...do not take a cruise here...fly and enjoy this Happy Island.  We spent nine glorious days here in February and  Brian and I can't wait to go back.  From the excitement of the planes landing over Maho Beach, the tranquil waters of Baie Rouge, the people watching and swimming in Orient Bay, enjoying the pastry shops, the shopping at the port of Phillipsburg, and walking around the local market at Marigot, to enjoying a HUGE Super Bowl Party at the Casino Royal and even making the local entertainment newspaper...we did it!!  Thanks Dad for this opportunity to enjoy the island with you.  It was just like you said the trip of a lifetime!!

New Hair

I finally did it...I cut my hair short!!  It feels so strange after years of long locks.  You can't see the back but it is stacked and short short short.  I'm ready for warm weather.

HAPPY - Pharell Williams [ We are from SXM ] #HAPPYDAY

This video was filmed in Saint Martin...just got back from 9 days there in February and I can't wait to go back next year...it is truly the HAPPY ISLAND.  I watch this and see so many places that I visited.  Aaaaaa GOOD TIMES!!


A White Wedding Day

This past Saturday was a HAPPY DAY for my beautiful niece and all of those who support her & her new husband.  The day got off a little bit rocky due to a deluge of snow that fell quickly and beautifully that morning, but what a better way to have a WHITE WEDDING in January.  Taylor was gorgeous in her dress and permanent smile her groom very dapper in his tux.  I am proud to be this young lady's Aunt.  She, like myself is sometimes misunderstood, but she has a good heart, is intelligent and beautiful inside and out.  Here's to Taylor's new life, with her new husband, may those smiles be on her face forever and ever, Amen.
