Hydrangea Cove - Vintage Boutique, Coastal Decor, Garden and Gift Shop

Have you heard about Hydrangea Cove?

This shop is perfect for gifts and home decor.  Inside the store, is like an oasis of coastal and vintage.  
I literally want every single item in the store.  It's a family owned shop, run by Susan Christopher.  Her passion has always been to bring Nantucket styles and the Hamptons charm into her West Coast beach home.  She's an expert in french style vintage cottage decor, gardening and bringing sophisticated and soft hues into the each room for the perfect beach house.  Susan travels all over to curate the best and most sophisticated collections of items that make her store unique and great for home design and gifts.

I can't even begin to tell you about the hours I spend on the Hydrangea Cove Pinterest Boards and Tumblr Pages teeming with beachy sunsets, shabby chic cottages and elegant gardens.

And let me not forget that the shop dog is an adorable French Bulldog!
Hank the Frenchie, who is always at the shop, ready and waiting for pets and interaction with customers.  The shop also sells cute items for dogs like bowls, collars, and toys.  You can even custom design a collar and leash from the UK Preston collars company at the shop for a quality collar.

To be or not to be...different

Uh oh. Here comes another anecdotal and self-aware journal entry blog post. Yup. You guessed it. So, shall we?

A lot has changed. New year, new President, new ban, new ideas...yet I am still me. New endeavors are in the midst.

I have since decreased most of my medications. And now I'm more me than I have been in 3 years. It's good and bad. I stopped therapy due to not having insurance but plan to go back once I find a new doc on my plan. Starting over....ugh. Not going to be fun.

But here I want to write down my struggle. I struggle to be who I think I need to be and who I am naturally. It's not about being cool or fitting in at this point. I already know I have a lot of "personality." About enough for two or three people. That's either your thing or it's not. Some call it quirky, unique, crazy, lots of different things. I've always had to edit myself in crowds and at work, in school...everywhere. That is why being on the stage was so easy for…

Candwich is back...back again!

The Candwich - Sandwich in a Can
The Candwich - Novelty? Gag Gift? Joke? Lunch? I'd say all of the above. This "sandwich in a can" is definitely silly and weird and I can't tell if it's the best thing in the world or the worst thing in world. Irregardless, I have had the opportunity of working with the Founder, Mark Kirkland, or as some call him the "Earl of Candwich." He is a genuine person and truly wants to give back and help "can" hunger. Mark is no stranger to controversy and has had his fair share of hiccups along the way in building his Candwich-opoly.

A Viral Sensation
Candwich went viral in 2010 when the New York Times broke the story about a rogue investor who ran a Ponzi Scheme and stole upwards of $145 million from creditors who wanted to invest in Mark One Foods Corp, Candwich's parent company. It took a long time to settle with creditors but Mark has successfully regained control of Candwich and wants to bring his sandwich in …

So this is thirty...

So this is thirty. I haven't been writing much because what you probably don't know is that my new job is to write. It's silly and something I fell into and I'd like for this blog and my many, many years of needing to express myself and tell stories to go into me finding this path. Once a storyteller, always a storyteller. I like to believe that this is true. Since I was young, I have had so much to say. More than most can keep up with. With that, I either entertained and wowed you or sent you running for the hills. Either way, I've learned from the cues and have worked to know where I fit in and when not to speak but when to write down. It started with journals, then poems, then songs, then this blog, more songs, and then I stopped. I transitioned from vomiting feelings on the page to thinking more strategically for an audience and thinking about my brand what I wanted to say to people who follow me. I don't know who realllly follows me, but if I w…
