Grateful for Great Grandparents

  This is the time of year when we all take a moment to feel grateful for the wonderful things in our lives. I am grateful for my work as an innsitter which I love. I am also grateful that my parents, who still live in Grinnell Iowa where I grew up, are healthy enough in their early 90's to enjoy some time being really GREAT great grandparents.

   These two were wonderful grandparents to my daughter Martine and now she makes sure they get to spend some quality time with my granddaughter Eleanor. Check out the dance party above!

I know we all have much to be grateful for.

This photo is one of the things I am most grateful for!

Happy Thanksgiving

WOW !!  It's Women Only Weekend in Cannon Beach. The Cannon Beach Hotel was one of the sponsors of this fabulous weekend and as Interim Innkeeper for the hotel, I got to attend some of the events at the Women Only Weekend. What FUN!

The first event was the "Launch Party" where I won a free facial from Sandviks Oils. Don't I look wonderful? This party also had live music, great food, wine, vendors and prizes. What it did not have was MEN. I mean it's
Women Only Weekend


  The second night  of Women Only Weekend the "Wine Down" party was held at the Cannon Beach Hotel. Guess who got to hostess that? Yup, yours truly [have I mentioned how much I LOVE my job?]. I mean I have lots of experience so might as well put it to good use!

The featured vendor at our event was Marcia Miller author of "You Go Girls!" travel book. She is also a travel consultant and guide. You know no one travels more than I do so it was very interesting for me to hear some of her tips for the perfect trip.

We had quite a fun crowd of women at the hotel to drink wine, eat delicious treats from the Cannon Beach Cafe and talk to Marcia about women on the go.

WOW!! I hope they have Women Only Weekend in Cannon Beach again and I hope I am here to work or just with some of my women friends.                               You should come too!
