Madelines Memory

A Little Bit About.....

My photo
Madeline was my grandmother on my mother's side. She was an amazing little Irish woman. How blessed we were to have her. Not a day goes by that I don't miss her. I am the wife of my bestfriend, the mother of four amazing kids ages 25, 22, 17 and 4. I am a grandma to 2 beautiful little boys and the mom-in-law to a terrific man. I come from a big wonderful family. My parents are my idols. My dad was always the silent one and my mom was the "tough" one. I have so much admiration for them and love being their daughter. I have 4 sisters and one brother, but I only have 3 surviving sisters now. My sister Michele passed away suddenly in 1989. I married into an amazing Italian family. I believe in God and Angels, and Ghosts. Not bad ones, but ones that just can't decide if they should stay or go. I believe that if you want something bad enough, you just need to believe and it will be yours. I believe that everyone means something to someone and this life without you would be miserable.

Summertime Pink Saturday

Ok, let me begin by saying.....I LOOOOVVVEEE SUMMER!!

I live in Southern California and our weather is just beautiful for about 10 months of the year (even when it is "bad" it is better than most places in the world), but summertime is the best. It gets really hot here (115 degrees in August), but I don't care.
It is nothing that a little swimming or cool drink can't relieve.

Thank you once again Beverly for being so sweet and hosting this wonderful weekly event. Be sure to visit her @


  1. A beautiful pink sunset and a cold pink lemonade will make summertime even better.

    Happy Pink Saturday.


  2. You're making summertime look really good to this winter-loving girl. I usually hibernate through our Alabama summers when possible. Hope you have a great Pink Saturday!
