EGGSalent!

EGGSalent day, wouldn’t you say?!😉


I received this egg plate as a gift years ago. It’s meant for deviled eggs, but I don’t make them that often. So, what’s a girl to do with this plate? #Repurpose #TahDah

And a great #potluck #4thOfJulyWeekend dish, too! 

It’s a n EGGSalent day, wouldn’t you say?!😄

Small Talk. Big Feeling.

“How’s your day going?”

“It’s going well.”

“Any plans for this weekend?”

“No.”

“Celebrating Father’s Day at home?”

“My dad passed.”

Silence.

This was my conversation with the cashier as I was paying for my items.

#Awkward
It didn’t dawn on me that the upcoming weekend was Father’s Day. Yes I saw the commercials and advertisement around me, but I didn’t connect to it. Until that moment. Instantly, I was numb. I know she was just trying to make #SmallTalk 

However, the #Feeling I felt at that moment was #Big.

An Everlasting L❤️VE

Hello everyone.

My name is Chérie. 

I am the first born of the first born namesake of Phyllis 

And I am the first born grandchild of Phyllis and the late, great LeRoy 


I took a moment to look around the room. Recognize. 

I loved cooking with my grandma. She taught me her famous fried cabbage, red beans and rice, and an Egg-in-a-Nest. Oohs, aaahs, smiles and “YESSS!” affirmations filled the room.

I loved that she taught me how to bake grandpa’s favorite Pinapple Upside Down Cake 


And I love that she taught me Spanish.

Growing up, my grandma walked around the house talking to herself. “What did you say, Grandma?”, I would say. “Nothing. It’s just Spanish…” , she would say and continue talking to herself.

I wanted to know what she was saying! So, when I was in high school I decided to take a Spanish class. 

The first thing I wanted to learn how to say was hello to my grandma. Because she was my grandma! 

One day, I called her and surprised her. “¡Hola Mi Abuela!”  

(There was a gasp for air…) “¡HOLA MI NIETA BONITA! ¿COMÓ ESTÁ?!……”

And she was ‘off to the races’ they say.

“Woah, woah! Slow down grandma! I’m just learning!” , I said.

My grandma could not stop laughing. ( I could feel her smiling through the phone).

From that day, my grandma promised me to only speak Spanish to her.😄

We would never say goodbye. We would always end our conversations with  “I love you.”

So, the next thing I wanted to learn was how to say was ‘I love you ‘ to my grandma. Because she was my grandma.

As I choked back tears…¡TE AMO MUCHO MI ABUELA! ¡TE AMO MUCHO!

That was my speech when my grandmother passed. She turned 92 on May 23rd and she passed on the 30th.

Here I come. 


Her favorite color, blue.


Her favorite flower, rose.

I drew these roses when I was young. By the new cursive handwriting , I was young! 😛

She was still doing Zumba up until right before she passed!😂

Memories….

Is some kind of wonderful 

Because you’ve shown me

Just how much you care

You’ve given me the thrill of a lifetime

And made me believe you’ve got more thrills to spare, oh

Write On!

“So, how did it go?!” The day after a Date Night. A girlfriend would say to me. 

“Noooo!”, they would say. “Yes!”, I would say. “No!”  “Yes, it did!”  I felt like I was playing pinball.  Silence.  Then, we would both laugh. One of my friends said “You have to write this stuff down….”
