You are an extraordinary woman, how can you expect to live an ordinary life? ~Louisa May Alcott
These simple words may have been first expressed by Louisa May Alcott, but they are also the foundation of my inner dialogue and philosophy of life. Welcome! I'm Susan, your hostess and guide to living a charmed, extraordinary, magnolia-scented life. Join me in the porch swing and I'll pour you a glass of sweet tea and share with you some of the magic and mysteries of the south.
An extraordinary life is not one that is born into, discovered by chance, or the good fortune of just a precious few. An extraordinary life is one that is PURPOSELY CREATED. Every woman has the power to consciously create the life and legacy she wishes. I’ve created mine to include immeasurable heartfelt snuggles, giggles, warm and enriching friendships, wild enthusiasm, gigantic vision, generous gratitude, femininity and charm, and four very lucky and well loved rescues: Lily Belle, Nannie Nutmeg, TammyTabby, and Scamp.
I hope you'll find my daily observations and recipes contribute to your purposefully created extraordinary life. And I hope you visit often!
when asked if the glass is half full or half empty, i always respond "my glass overflows!, " blending all my passions into a balanced and harmonious life of family-friends-furbabies-travel-photography-good food-and wordsmithing. Oh yeah, and I love Doris Day. The first words I ever strung together were, "By the light" as in "By the light of the Silvery Moon." Mom sang it to me when I was a baby.
