Tell Me Something : Simple Thoughts

Music or Books?
I love to read, but music always touches my soul

McDreamy or McSteamy?
I never watch tv, unless I’m spending time with one of my daughters.

Heels or favourite winter boots?
heels...I have to disappoint you and confess, I only have one pair.
boots, I have 12!

One beauty product or routine that you would recommend or can't live without?
I have very dry skin. years ago I was a consultant for Lancome.
I had the best skin care at my finger tips.
I’d give anything for that again! I moisturize daily!

One book you would recommend to anyone or that you love and often return to?
I read scriptures daily and if I were stuck on a desert island, I would love to have my bible with me! my favorite series includes The Chronicles of Narnia and Harry Potter.
My favorite inspirational fiction book is Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers.
I love Patti Callahan Henry and Mary Alice Monroe too.

One movie that makes you cry every time?
I always cry during “Sleepless in Seattle”. it was a favorite of mine & my first hubby. It played on tv the evening he passed away. That was 15 years ago and it still gets me.
One life-changing moment?
My major life moments include the birth of each of my girls, marrying two wonderful men, and now sending my first born off to college.

How long have you known your oldest friend?
I’ve known my best friend Kristin ( from Twinkle Life) for what seems like forever.
We grew up across the street from each other.
She has been a loyal , daily encourager to me for decades!

Three dream cities you have yet to visit?
I would love to visit Paris, London & New York ( my husband is from Long Island).

School days - happy or sad, good or bad memories?
School days are happy memories for me, especially high school. I loved high school!

What - or who - always makes you feel better on those more challenging days?
My husband Dan is a constant daily encouragement to me.
He is selfless and kind.
I have no idea how I married such a dream. seriously.

Recommend a blog to us?
My favorite blogs include Life in Grace, Fly Through our Window and Jones Design Company.
Happier now than you were at 20....honestly?!
absolutely! I have loved all stages in my life.
I have had a blessed life and feel so fortunate to come from a family who loved & supported me.
I have friends that have been loyal and supportive to me.
My daughters are the blessings I always hoped for, my little women.

Thank you Simone.
You are a delight. You always have a kind word for me.
While I am far from glamorous, I appreciate you finding loveliness in everyday!

Paige writes the blog Simple's a blog that is such a pleasure to read every single day.
She has four beautiful girls and as a mother of (just) one daughter, I find it continually inspiring.
It's also about family life.....home life and every day life.
Paige is also a wonderful photographer - all the photos above are her own.

Thanks for writing for me Paige XX

  3. I have been working much and haven't taken the time to read blogs I love, much less comment, or post. For some reason I came across this post this morning. Paige is my best friend..., I am Kristin. You know on a day where you just need to feel encouraged that having a good heart might matter. Well today is one of those days and I found it here, so thank you. I wish you to know that Paige has been equally kind and encouraging to me. To know her in this life is to be blessed. We have walked a very long life journey together and I don't know what I would do without that girl as my best friend and her family in my life. Love them much and glad you like her enough to do a post on her. To know her, you too will be immensely blessed! Happy Day to You. As always, I love your blog, your images and just your writings that make me go oooohhhh ahhhh and make me have a skip in my step. Thank you for you!
